The Real Reason Why There’s No Comedian at Nerd Prom: My Conversation with White House Corespondent’s Association President Olivier Knox

It’s called “Nerd Prom” or the one day a year you say “what channel is CSPAN on?”…it’s the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.  The party where politicians  and the journalists who cover them come together to celebrate over food, drink and entertainment by a comic.  But this year it’s different.  We talk to White House Correspondent’s Association President Olivier Knox and find out why there’s no comic at this year’s party (it’s NOT what you think), what would happen if Trump actually attends, debate the need for comedy in our political climate and why Knox requested videos of Larry the Cable Guy (seriously y’all send them to him). 🙂
