Samantha Bee to Roast Trump on Same Night as Correspondents’ Dinner
To ensure jokes about the president are made to her satisfaction, the comedian will hold the Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington.
The gala will take place on Saturday, April 29 at The Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C.. That just happens to be the same night as the annual White House Correspondents Dinner.
"Executives at TBS offered their full support of the gala by nodding politely and then muttering under their breath as we turned around," said Bee in a release. "The evening is sure to bring plenty of surprises, music, food, and laughter—and if you're not careful you just might learn something. Specifically, you’ll learn how screwed we'd be without a free press."
All proceeds will go to the Committee to Protect Journalist.
