2 Min Read

Colin Jost, the co-lead of “Saturday Night Live’s” long-running “Weekend Update,” will host the 2024 White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday evening in Washington, D.C.

The annual event, which typically includes roastings by the evening’s comedian, powerful political figures and various media outlets, is expected to feature an election-year roast of President Joe Biden.

A mix of political, media and Hollywood figures arrived at the so-called “Nerd Prom” tonight, including SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher, Gayle King, Billy Porter, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Al Roker, Chris Pine, Senator Chuck Schumer from New York and many more.

Jost began writing for “SNL” in 2005 and has been the co-anchor of “Weekend Update” with Michael Che since 2014.

“His sharp insights are a perfect fit for this remarkable time of divided politics and a presidential campaign headed for a rematch. His clever brand of comedy and sharp observation will ratchet up the tension on the national news media and across the political spectrum. An evening of laughter and reflection as our dinner honors freedom of the press as a cornerstone of American democracy,” said Kelly O’Donnell, president of the White House Correspondents’ Association and NBC News Senior White House Correspondent.

Watch the 2024 White House Correspondents Dinner live at 8:00 PM ET via C-SPAN.
