TBS's Full Frontal with Samantha Bee Announces "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner" Saturday, April 29, 2017

NEW YORK - TBS's late-night hit Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is pleased to announce its first annual "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner," which will take place on Saturday, April 29, at The Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. (the Old Post Office being regrettably unavailable due to a Bahraini Press Freedom Consortium). Samantha Bee, noted purveyor of FAKE NEWS(TM), will host the gala affair, welcoming journalists and non-irritating celebrities from around the world. We suspect some members of the press may find themselves unexpectedly free that night, and we want to feed them and give them hugs.

"Executives at TBS offered their full support of the gala by nodding politely and then muttering under their breath as we turned around," said Bee. "The evening is sure to bring plenty of surprises, music, food, and laughter - and if you're not careful you just might learn something. Specifically, you'll learn how screwed we'd be without a free press."

Though unrelated, Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner will happen at the exact same time as the official White House Correspondents' Dinner. What an incredible coincidence.

All proceeds for "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner" will go to the Committee to Protect Journalists (cpj.org), whether they like it or not. They certainly didn't ask for the support of a woman whom Newsbusters once called "an unfunny, feminist battle ax."

"We're really doing this," said Bee. "This is not a joke."

BYOB.

About Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee has grown its audience of adults 18-49 by huge margins since premiering last February, with Q4 2016 Live + 7 figures showing a +35% lift over Q1 2016 and initial 2017 numbers showing an even more impressive +80% increase. Hailed by The New Yorker as "America's new Comedian-in-Chief," host Samantha Bee took late night by storm with her bare-knuckled coverage of the 2016 Presidential election. Now the Full Frontal team is leading late-night's efforts to keep the new administration honest. Or make them honest. Or just laugh at their dishonesty.

In addition to covering Washington politics, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee shines a spotlight on stories beyond the beltway, from untested rape kits in Georgia to abortion laws in Texas to diaper bills in California, as well as national tragedies such as the mass shooting in Orlando. Full Frontal also travels around the world to cover international stories, with segments from Jordan, Germany, Russia, and (this week) Scotland.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. The series is executive-produced by Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Jo Miller, Miles Kahn and Tony Hernandez.
