“Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis” has hosted both President Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. So how would the Funny Or Die talk show handle President Trump?
“I would, maybe, try to do a prank episode where we surprised him with, you know, intel we had gained proving that he’s a traitor to the United States,” director Scott Aukerman joked during an interview with TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell.
“If we were able to come across any kind of Russian intelligence that proved that he is a traitor and should be impeached,” Aukerman said. “It would be a fun prank thing, like, ‘Surprise! Here’s the evidence!'”
Aukerman — the creator of IFC’s “Comedy Bang! Bang!” — stopped by TheWrap studios to promote his Netflix Valentine’s Day special “Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special,” which he wrote, directs and executive produces, along with its star, the Grammy-winning singer.
According to the official description, the special follows Bolton “as he creates a sexy variety special that serves one very important purpose: to get people in the mood to make love.” And that’s a description that Aukerman promises the show will live up to.
