Gloria Steinem, Jessica Williams, Padma Lakshmi, Kal Penn, and Keegan-Michael Key are among those who will not be attending the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Instead, all will be in the audience for Samantha Bee's Not The White House Correspondents' Dinner.
The much-anticipated comedy special from the host of TBS's Full Frontal with Samantha Bee will take place this Saturday, April 29, at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. The location is less than two miles away from the Washington Hilton, where the actual White House Correspondents' Dinner is taking place at the same time.
Bee has promised that the evening will be full of "surprises, music, food and laughter" as well as some educational tidbits such as "how screwed we'd be without a free press."
The show will air on TBS starting at 10 p.m. on Saturday. If you don't have a cable subscription, you'll also be able to watch the entire show on Twitter, beginning at 11 p.m. The social network has even christened #NTWHCD with its own emoji, as it does all official hashtags.
Don't expect President Trump to mark his first 100 days in office with a surprise appearance at either roasting event. His plans are taking him to Pennsylvania instead, where he plans to host a "BIG" rally.
Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
