Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders — portrayed by comedians Anthony Atamanuik and James Adomian, respectively — will debate each other at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City, Feb. 26 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are currently available at the whiteeaglehalljc.com web site, on which the show is described as taking place in “a town hall-like setting where (Trump and Sanders) go head to head on the most pressing issues facing America.”
Atamanuik starred as Trump in the 2017 Comedy Central series, “The President Show,” which also featured Adomian as Sanders. Comedy Central also aired two “President Show” specials in 2018.
Atamanuik and Adomian have toured before, as Trump and Sanders, and made a joint appearance as those characters on SiriusXM satellite radio’s “The Howard Stern Show.” They also released an album, Trump vs. Bernie: Live in Brooklyn, in 2016.
Here is a special they did for the Fusion cable channel in 2016:
