"Klepper" is a comedic news documentary show that follows Jordan Klepper as he travels around the country to uncover underreported stories and meet the people who are affected by them. The show premiered on Comedy Central in 2019 and features six episodes. Jordan Klepper is a former correspondent from "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" and "The Opposition with Jordan Klepper". In "Klepper", he takes on a new role as a hands-on investigator, diving deep into stories that he believes need more attention. In each episode, Klepper is joined by a different guest to help him navigate the topic at hand.

One of the guests on the show is Alyssa Carson, a young woman who dreams of being one of the first humans to land on Mars. Klepper travels with her to the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah to explore the challenges that come with living in a simulated Martian environment. Along the way, they meet other space enthusiasts and discuss the importance of space exploration.

In another episode, Klepper travels to the border between the United States and Mexico to report on the controversy surrounding the Trump administration's immigration policies. Jan Ohrstrom, a Swedish documentary filmmaker, accompanies Klepper as they meet with people on all sides of the issue, including asylum seekers, Customs and Border Protection agents, and members of a militia group. They also speak with lawyers who are working tirelessly to help those seeking asylum navigate the complicated legal process.

Throughout the series, Klepper and his guests tackle topics that range from gun ownership to LGBTQ+ rights to climate change. In each episode, they take a lighthearted and comedic approach to serious issues, but also strive to give a voice to those who may not have one.

One of the standout episodes of the series is "Welcome to Michigan!", in which Klepper travels to a small town in Michigan to report on a group of anti-Muslim protesters. The group has been protesting outside a local mosque for months, but Klepper is determined to find out what's really going on. He speaks with members of the mosque, the protesters themselves, and even follows one of them home to discuss their beliefs. In the end, Klepper and his team organize a community event that brings together the protesters and the Muslim community in an attempt to bridge the divide.

"Klepper" is a show that has a unique blend of humor and serious journalism. Jordan Klepper's brand of humor is well-suited for this kind of show, as he manages to find levity in even the most serious of topics. However, he and his guests also take their roles as investigators seriously, and strive to give viewers a better understanding of the issues they report on.

The show is expertly produced and includes beautiful cinematography that makes each episode feel like a mini-documentary. The editing is snappy and keeps the show moving along quickly, while still allowing time for Klepper and his guests to explore each topic fully.

Overall, "Klepper" is a refreshing take on the news documentary format. It manages to take on serious issues with a lighthearted approach, while still giving voices to those who may not have them. The show is equal parts funny and informative, and is definitely worth a watch.

Klepper is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (8 episodes). The series first aired on May 9, 2019.
