Actor Alec Baldwin has confirmed he is considering taking his infamous impression of President Donald Trump to Broadway in a one-man show based on his popular Saturday Night Live routine.

“We may take the book and make it into a one-man show on Broadway,” Baldwin said in a Monday interview on The Howard Stern Show in order to promote his recent faux-chronicle of Donald Trump entitled You Can’t Spell America Without Me. 

Baldwin added that any show would be produced by Lorne Michaels, the creator of Saturday Night Live. 

“What Lorne did do is give me permission to write this book,” Baldwin said. “My rendering of (Trump) is his intellectual property. His people made it, his people wrote it; I just showed up.”

Baldwin claimed that the show would be similar to Will Ferrell’s one-man show You’re Welcome, America: A Final Night With George W. Bush, which was similarly exported from his impersonation of Bush on Saturday Night Live. 

The SNL star previously claimed he would retire his Trump impression, but later did a U-turn and announced he would reprise his role for the current season.

On Monday, he also said that he and his co-author Kurt Andersen were “sick” of Trump being used as a source of comedy.

“We’re all sick of the whole Trump as a source of comedy thing, and I am too, but Kurt goes to another level,” he said.

The actor is known for his harsh criticism of the president, and recently implored Americans to “send Trump to a retirement home in Moscow where he belongs.”

Earlier this year, documentary filmmaker Michael Moore staged a one-man, anti-Trump Broadway show, titled The Terms of My Surrender, for a twelve-week run. Moore recently announced his intention to take the show on a national tour, despite the Broadway version’s mixed critical reception and poor box office performance.
