White House Correspondents' Dinner 2017 Host Revealed: Daily Show's Hasan Minhaj!

Daily Show comedian Hasan Minhaj is set to host the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner this year.

In the past, comedians such as Larry Wilmore, Jimmy Kimmel, Cecily Strong, Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert hosted the star-studded event.

This year, President Donald Trump announced he would not attend the April 29 event.

“It is a tremendous honor to be a part of such a historic event even though the president has chosen not to attend this year. SAD! Now more than ever, it is vital that we honor the First Amendment and the freedom of the press,” Hasan said in a statement (via CNN).
