It has been said that a handsome man with a beaming smile will host the Not The White House Correspondents Dinner and that man is Hasan Minhaj. The comedian and The Daily Show contributor is tasked with emceeing "Nerd Prom" that is to be thrown by Samantha Bee and TBS.
“It is a tremendous honor to be a part of such a historic event even though the president has chosen not to attend this year. SAD! Now more than ever, it is vital that we honor the First Amendment and the freedom of the press" said Minhaj on the news.
The regular Correspondents Dinner doesn't look like it's going to happen so Bee proposed this idea on her show months ago. The night is a celebration of first amendment rights and the importance of the media. The Wrap reports that the news was announced on MSNBC's Morning Joe. TBS will air the Not The White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday, April 29 at 10 PM.
