Being the evening’s big entertainer usually means performing roast-style comedy in the presence of (and often directed at) the President of the United States of America, though Donald Trump chose to skip last year’s event, which featured Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj at the podium. The list of the dinner’s recent entertainers includes Larry Wilmore, Cecily Strong, Joel McHale, Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel.
Wolf is having quite a month: Earlier in February, Netflix announced that she would host her own weekly, late-night-esque talk show. The former Daily Show and Late Night With Seth Meyers writer also recently starred in her first HBO stand-up special, titled Nice Lady.
The annual dinner will take place on Saturday, April 28, and will be broadcast on CSPAN.
