Trevor Receives Great Reviews as he Became the First African to Host the White House Dinner

South African comedian Trevor Noah has once again took another huge step in his career when he became the first African to host the White House Correspondent's Dinner.

The correspondents’ dinner is an annual black-tie event which sees the United States president invite and have a laugh with distinguished guests.

In this event several journalist are honoured for tbeir contribution to the media. It is organised by the Correspondent's Association. Every year a headlining act is picked with our own Trevor being the one selected for this occasion.

The talented Trevor didn't dissapoint as he made sure to grill some politicians, celebrities and journalists tht attended the event. Due to the covid pandemic the event didn't occur in the past two years. Even though it is a tradition for American presidents to attend Donald Trump never attended a Correspondent's Dinner.Among the things Noah joked about was former US President Donald Trump, President Joe Biden, the slap in the Oscars, covid19 amd politicians.

“It is risky making jokes these days. I mean, we all saw what happened at the Oscars. I’ve actually been a little worried about tonight.

“What if I make a really mean joke about Kellyanne Conway… and then her husband rushes up on the stage and thanks me?” he said.

Both political sides praised Trevor for his humour which was directed at both realms.
