How To Stream Samantha Bee's 'Not The White House Correspondents' Dinner' Because You Won't Want To Miss A Minute
Sorry, White House Correspondents' Dinner, but you are about to get upstaged by the First Lady of comedy. On Saturday, April 29, Samantha Bee is hosting the Not The White House Correspondents' Dinner special on TBS, and, according to a press release, the proceeds from the sure-to-be star-studded event are going to Committee to Protect Journalists. It's going to be an amazing night, and if you don't want to miss out, then you need to know how to stream Bee's Not The White House Correspondents' Dinner.
Thankfully, TBS is making streaming the event as simple as possible. The cable safe version of the telecast will air on TBS at 10 p.m. EST for those who want to watch on their TVs, but the real fun starts at 11 p.m. EST. Bee's Not the WHCD special will stream on Twitter in its full, uncensored form. All you have to do in order to watch is click on this link, pop some popcorn, and wait for the show to start. There's already a countdown to let you know how long until the live stream begins.
If you can't wait until 11 p.m. to get your fix, you can watch the stars arrive on the red carpet on Twitter starting at 9 p.m. An official guest list hasn't been announced, but a number of stars and popular comedians are already showing up for the main event, including Alia Shawkat, Tegan and Sara, and Will Ferrell, who is set to appear as George W. Bush.
According to The Hill, with President Trump skipping the actual White House Correspondents' Dinner, and many journalists who would normally be at the dinner set to cover the President's rally in Pennsylvania instead, the annual event is not attracting the big-name guests it has in the past. Under the Obama administration, the dinner drew stars like George Clooney, Kerry Washington, and Bradley Cooper.
This year, Bee's Not the WHCD is looking more and more like the place to be. The event's press release summed up the appeal of watching Bee take on Trump and offer up an evening of laughs in support of the free press perfectly:
"Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner will finally answer the question, "What if Washington D.C.'s annual nerd prom were hosted by a lady nerd and had way more curse words? Also, what if it actually honored a free press and gave the finger to those who would try to diminish it?"
You know you don't want to miss a minute of Bee's biting commentary, so make sure you head to Twitter to watch the dinner in all of its uncensored glory.
