Political Commentator, Comedian and Television Host
Jordan Klepper has been doing comedy for the better part of the last two decades. In addition to stand up and storytelling, he is currently covering the 2020 Presidential Election for the Daily Show in his recurring Jordan Klepper Fingers The Pulse segments.
He is the creator and star of the Comedy Central docu-series, Klepper. The show has been called “a fresh, powerful interpretation of news” (Detroit Free Press) that brings Klepper to “new comedic heights” (Vanity Fair). He was formerly host and executive producer of the weeknight Comedy Central talk show, The Opposition With Jordan Klepper.
Previously, he had been best known for his memorable appearances as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, which he joined in 2014 under Jon Stewart and continued after Trevor Noah took over as host in 2015. In his time at The Daily Show, the show picked up an Emmy and Peabody award, and Klepper defined himself with both his studio work and segments in the field, ranging from his multi-part series exploring the reality of being a “Good Guy with a Gun“ to his field pieces at Trump rallies which have garnered millions of views.
In June of 2017, his one-hour special Jordan Klepper Solves Guns premiered on Comedy Central and focused on the alarming legal obstacles and enlightening personal testimony surrounding the issue of gun violence in America.
