Ziwe is set to return with another season on Showtime. For Episode 1 of Season 2 of the late-night variety show, we’ll have acclaimed comedian Ziwe engaged in a debate on critical race theory and other social issues with Charlamagne Tha God, from his real name Lenard Larry McKelvey.
Charlamagne Tha God is an acclaimed American radio host and television personality, famous for co-hosting the nationally broadcast radio show The breakfast club with DJ Envy and Angela Yee. He is also known for hosting the late night talk show God’s Honest Truth on Comedy Central.
Before making his mark with The breakfast clubMcKelvey had also worked as a radio personality for several radio stations and spent time as a second mic on The Wendy Williams Experience with none other than Wendy Williams on VH1. He was also a VJ for The week in jams with DJ Envy and Sofi Green.
Charlamagne Tha God has become a household name since his interview with Kanye West went viral. He is known for his straightforward questioning style and carefree attitude when engaging his guests in interviews.
It’s intriguing how McKelvey got his stage name. In an interview with the New York Times, he reportedly revealed information about how he got his name,
“I called myself Charles because I didn’t want people who bought me crack to know my real name. And then when I was in night school, I was reading in the history book about Charlemagne, which is French for Charles the Great.
That’s what inspired him to change his name and he added the “Tha God” part because he thought it sounded good. Get ready to see more Charlamagne Tha God on the Showtime talk show.
