Late-night all-star Samantha Bee, who helms the weekly political comedy show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, will be making her way to Washington this spring for a night of satirical fun. But Bee won’t be participating in the real White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which traditionally features a night of gentle humor about the Commander-in-Chief. Instead, she’ll be hosting her own shadow event entitled “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner”, which will be aired on TBS. The event is committed to demonstrating the importance of free speech and will bring together journalists from across the country. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Committee to Protect Journalists.
