New York, NY, August 18, 2022 – Comedy Central today announced plans for a brand new podcast series hosted by Emmy-nominated The Daily Show with Trevor Noah contributor Jordan Klepper titled The Daily Show Presents: Jordan Klepper Fingers the Conspiracy, produced in partnership with iHeartMedia. In his adventures into MAGA country as seen on the recurring Daily Show series “Jordan Klepper Fingers the Pulse”, Jordan Klepper encounters some of the more imaginative, conspiratorial minds America offers. In this six-episode limited podcast series, Jordan steps off the trail to dig deep into some of the wildest theories he’s heard and trace their origins with journalists, experts, and anyone who might have a lead on when JFK Jr. is coming back. Jordan Klepper Fingers the Conspiracy offers an opportunity to better understand the stories Americans tell themselves.
Jordan Klepper Fingers the Conspiracy will expand the robust Daily Show podcast catalog, which includes the recently launched podcast Hold Up, hosted by correspondent Dulcé Sloan and writer Josh Johnson, and Beyond the Scenes, hosted by Roy Wood Jr., which just began its second season this month. Previously, The Daily Show also successfully launched The Daily Show: Ears Edition, which is currently the #1 Late Night Comedy podcast, and The Daily Show Podcast Universe, a five-episode miniseries parodying popular podcasts.

The series won a 2022 Webby Award for “Best Social Video Series” and earned a 2022 PGA Award nomination in the Outstanding Short-Form Program category. Jordan has also appeared in two separate Emmy-nominated specials, both of which examine the legacy of Trump’s conservatism in America and abroad.

It also received a 2022 DGA Award nomination for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Variety/Talk/News/Sports. More recently, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Presents: Jordan Klepper Fingers the Globe – Hungary for Democracy saw Jordan travel from CPAC to Hungary to find out why the Hungarian right-wing government has become American conservatives’ latest obsession. The special aired in April of this year and is presently Emmy-nominated in the Outstanding Writing for Variety Special category.
