Samantha Bee is holding her own version of the White House Correspondents Dinner, the aptly titled Not The White House Correspondents Dinner, on the same weekend.
Bee and her team from “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” will host a special red carpet event before the big show. What’s even more special is that the event will air on Twitter in all of its uncensored glory.
All proceeds from Bee’s dinner will go to the Committee to Protect Journalists. The comedian says the millennials who run the show’s social media convinced her to do this. “The teens who run our social media accounts said we should do this, and honestly, I was about three margaritas in at the time, so I guess it’s happening,” Bee said of the Twitter livestream.
Bee’s Not The White House Correspondents Dinner will air Saturday, April 29 beginning at 11 p.m. ET on Twitter.
No word yet on whether Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump or Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer will be in attendance.
