Fans of Saturday Night Live are in for a special treat this summer when Weekend Update correspondent Colin Jost comes to the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center. For one night only, fans will be able to see Jost as he samples his comedic skills on Saturday, July 30th.
Jost, a Harvard graduate, has been a writer for SNL since 2005, and was promoted to head writer in 2014, before taking over Weekend Update. His resume also includes a stint as the Editor and President of the Harvard Lampoon, which boasts comedic greats such as Conan O’Brien and producer of The Office, B.J. Novak, as alums.
