The White House Correspondents’ Dinner returns tonight and once again, it turns to late-night TV for help. The Daily Show host Trevor Noah will host tonight’s event.
Tonight’s event is the first in three years after the novel coronavirus pandemic forced the dinner to be canceled in 2020 and 2021. Also, President Joe Biden is expected to join the festivities — something his predecessor Donald Trump did not do in 2017, 2018, and 2019.
There to welcome President Biden will be Trevor Noah. The Daily Show host will surely have something to say about the previous administration before turning his attention to the current one.
According to Variety, Noah’s fellow late-night host James Corden will also appear in a pretaped sketch to start the event. He’s expected to be joined by actor Billy Eichner.
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner starts at 8:00 p.m. ET. It airs live on C-SPAN as well as on C-SPAN.org and the C-SPAN Now app. Noah is expected to take the stage at 9:30.
Trevor Noah joins a list of other late-night TV personalities to host the WHCD
President Trump’s administration vowed that no comedian would host the event after 2018. However, the Biden administration has reversed course and once again tapped a late-night TV personality for help.
Tonight, Trevor Noah joins an impressive list of late-night TV names who have hosted the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
The list includes Michelle Wolf, Hasan Minhaj, Larry Wilmore, Cecily Strong, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, Stephen Colbert, and Jon Stewart.
Noah should have no problem filling the role tonight. He’s performed in countless stand-up shows, hosted The Daily Show since 2015, and just hosted this year’s Grammy Awards.
