Power 105.1’s Charlamagne Tha God has been cracking listeners up as part of the The Breakfast Club radio morning show and as a regular on MTV2‘s Guy Code series. The radio personality’s latest venture will be hosting a late-night talk show launching next month titled, Charlamagne And Friends.

MTV2 made the announcement earlier today (July 30) that the show will have a limited five-day run ahead of this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Charlamagne will be joined by entertainers, comedians and other public figures in front of a live studio audience for the half-hour series. Both MTV and Charlamagne appear to be excited about the upcoming project.

“Charlamagne has a unique comedic voice, a range of interests across the pop culture landscape, and a pretty strong opinion on everything – this all adds up to the perfect pre-party to get our audience ready for the 2013 ‘MTV Video Music Awards. Charlamagne’s hilarious, uncut and very candid commentary on the awards show will definitely have viewers laughing,” said Paul Ricci, MTV2’s Head of Development and Production, in a press statement.

Always ready to speak his mind, Charlamagne is looking forward to his new gig. “I always wanted a chance to express my politically incorrect views and potentially dangerous rhetoric on my own show,” he said in a press statement. “I’m extremely grateful that MTV2 is giving me this opportunity and I hope I don’t make them regret it.”

Charlamagne And Friends debuts Tuesday, August 20 at midnight ET/PT and will run nightly until Saturday, August 24. For more information, visit the show’s Facebook page by following this link.
