Full Frontal’s Samantha Bee Announces ‘Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner!’

Samantha Bee, of TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, has announced the organization of Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner – an answer to the the first White Correspondents’ Dinner since President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration.

Though unrelated, Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner will happen at the exact same time as the official White House Correspondents’ Dinner. What an incredible coincidence.

Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner will take place on Saturday, April 29th at the Willard Hotel in Washington D.C.

Samantha Bee, noted purveyor of FAKE NEWS™, will host the gala affair, welcoming journalists and non-irritating celebrities from around the world. Details follow the break.

Last night on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, she took on the ‘rigged’ Democratic Nevada Primary in her typical whimsical style – and that was just for openers.

If you haven’t yet caught Ms. Bee in action, Full Frontal airs Monday evenings (10:30/9:30C) on TBS. For a taste of what you can expect from her definitely NSFW show, check out last night’s episode (Yup! The whole thing!) after the break. (Earmuffs not included.)
