Conservative Late-Night Network Comedy?

No, it’s not a joke. A new late-night comedy show premiering in 2019 will be hosted by a conservative, and not only is he on the opposite side of the spectrum of his established leftist competition, he’s also an experienced firefighter. Host Victor Dweck (“Dweck”) explains the show’s politics: “We created the show because we couldn’t watch late night anymore. It’s just too hateful and insulting to people who like our president. However, with our show, we put comedy above all else, and we’re careful not to label ourselves ‘conservative comedy.’ That being said, we are both proud conservatives by today’s definition, and you will definitely see that come out in what we choose to satirize.” Read more…

Late-night comedy shows are now one-trick ponies: They bash President Trump every night — sometimes in the most profane way possible (like when Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t.”).

The modern late-night host is a pathetic imitation of the best ever, Johnny Carson. To the longtime host of “The Tonight Show,” all politics was hilarious, and he’d mock Democrats right alongside Republicans. In fact, no one was ever even sure just where “The King of Late Night” stood personally on political issues.

Today’s late night hosts, though, are now more activist than comedian, from Jimmy Kimmel to Jimmy Fallon to Seth Meyers to Stephen Colbert. They push for far-left policies, defend Democrats at every turn and rip Republicans nightly.
