Will Ferrell poised for Broadway debut

Will Ferrell is set to make his Broadway debut in a new solo comedy show called You’re Welcome America - A Final Night With George W Bush.

The show will be produced by Adam McKay, Ferrell’s collaborator on films Step Brothers and Anchorman.

Ferrell and McKay also worked together on US TV show Saturday Night Live and co-founded comedy website Funny or Die.

It is expected that Ferrell and McKay will write the show's script, following up on their previous screenwriting work for their cinematic outings.

Ferrell's impersonation of President Bush has become a hit on YouTube, with close to 5.5 million views.
