The Opposition with Jordan Klepper - Show Summary

The Opposition with Jordan Klepper is a new late night show on Comedy Central, hosted by former Daily Show correspondent, Jordan Klepper. Airing at 11:30pm four nights a week, Monday through Thursday, following The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, The Opposition with Jordan Klepper is a news satire program that aims to satirize alternative media in the United States. In the first episode, Klepper introduced the underpinning principles of his show, which include “mental nationalism,” defined as when you only hear from others what you’ve already been telling yourself.  This relativistic mode of subjective news as patriotism is intended as satire.

Specifically, of all the influences Klepper is riffing off of, he is most directly referencing Alex Jones, the founder and host of InfoWars, which streams on Periscope and Jones’ own website.  This platform agnostic media site has gained a lot of momentum in conservative circles, with its identifying attributes being such actions as ruffling through a mess of printed out articles on his desk, fidgeting while practicing a loud-mannered way of speaking, spouting conspiracy theories, and yelling incredulously as a means of persuasion.

Klepper satirizes these signature habits and more, aiming to provide a rebuttal to more direct fun-poking of The Daily Show through the lens of an indirect funhouse mirror.  Like The Colbert Report, which formerly followed The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Opposition with Jordan Klepper is hosted by a man playing a conservative character. In this way, The Opposition rounds out the late night evening with a show hosted by a man doing an impression of a host, rather than a more straightforward hosting method.  With Klepper’s experience as a correspondent on The Daily Show under the tenure of both Jon Stewart and Trevor Noah, he is well equipped to offer his counterpoint in the show that now immediately follows four times a week.

On each episode, Klepper interviews one featured guest, who so far have included FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver, Bill Nye the Science Guy, LBJ director Rob Reiner, and Daily Beast editor Erin Gloria Ryan. In sum, The Opposition opposes the actual political opposition from a beleaguered, right-wing, satirical angle, providing an interesting addition to the late night television scene.

Should you see The Opposition with Jordan Klepper being taped?

  The Opposition has been reviewed as a bullish and pointed satirical news show, which lampoons the conservative alternative media by means of impersonation. Each half-hour episode begins with an introductory monologue by Klepper, standing in front of a cork board that is comically overridden with news clippings, red yarn, pushpins and conspiracy theory images. In this monologue, Klepper declares that he has “figured it out,” and generally blames the Democrats for all the world’s troubles. Then he rushes over to his desk, and continues his monologue while seated.  Following the opening, the episodes each then center on a news item of the moment, which are of particular interest to conservative media. For instance, in one episode, Klepper offered tips for reclaiming the sport of football, and in another episode, he examined the results of the highly reported Alabama Senate primary election. Other episodes have included topics such as the Russian hacking scandal, Hurricane Maria, gun control, climate change, the internet’s brave truth tellers, the Melania Trump body double conspiracy, Trump’s tax reform plan, a cryptic tweet from James Comey, Betsy DeVos’ role as the Secretary of Education, Trump’s visit to China, and many more.
