Second event will air Saturday, April 27, 10 PM ET/PT on TBS

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee will hold its second not-annual Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Friday, April 26, at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.

“I vowed never to host a NWHCD ever again,” Full Frontal host Samantha Bee said. “But the White House Correspondents’ Association has left me no choice — it is now up to comedy journalists to take care of real journalists. Even if those journalists insist on wearing corduroy.”

The gala event will feature Bee, celebrity guests and better food than last time. The event will bring together journalists, members of the media and all those who are committed to reaffirming the First Amendment. 

“It’s bigger than just the Free Press this time around,” Bee said. “This is about the non-sexy parts of the First Amendment, too — and if the White House Correspondents’ Association won’t defend them, we will.”

Though taping on April 26, Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner 2 will air at the same time as the official White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Saturday, April 27, 10 PM ET/PT on TBS.

All proceeds for Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner will go to the Committee to Protect Journalists, which did not ask for Bee’s help in 2017 and probably didn’t ask for it this time either.

Hamberders will be served.
