Host announced of this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner


Jost began writing for SNL in 2005 and has hosted “Weekend Update” since 2014, alongside comedian Michael Che.

Every week, “Weekend Update” touches on top news in the United States and around the world from a comedic angle, with Jost and Che often poking fun at U.S. officials, lawmakers and the media.

“His sharp insights perfectly meet this remarkable time of divided politics, and a presidential campaign careening toward a rematch,” O’Donnell added. “His smart brand of comedy and keen observation will turn up the heat on the national news media and across the political spectrum.”

Jost’s appearance follows comedian Roy Wood Jr.’s performance at the dinner last year, during which
he poked fun
at President Joe Biden, Republicans, Democrats and members of the media.
