Samantha Bee Announces Trump Roast Scheduled During White House Correspondents Dinner

Looks like Samantha Bee won’t need those granola bars now.

The comedian, 47, will take part in a roast of Donald Trump the night of the White House Correspondents’ dinner.

Set to be held at the Willard Hotel Washington, D.C., on April 29, “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” will feature the “Full Frontal” host and other comedians making jokes about the president, reports the New York Times.

“We’re not trying to supersede [the White House Correspondents’ Dinner],” the comedian told the paper. “We just want to be there in case something happens — or doesn’t happen — and ensure that we get to properly roast the president.”

Bee said the event came about during a conversation with her show’s producers shortly after Trump was elected in November.
