Celebs Attend Samantha Bee Event Instead of Actual White House Correspondents' Dinner

While there are always celebs at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, there were virtually none there this year due to Donald Trump‘s presidency… so stars went to Samantha Bee‘s Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner instead!

The Full Frontal television personality hosted the event for TBS on Saturday night (April 29) at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.

Some of the celebs in attendance included cute couple Austin Nichols and Chloe Bennet, Ali Larter with husband Hayes MacArthur, Search Party co-stars Alia Shawkat and Meredith Hagner, Orange Is the New Black‘s Alysia Reiner, Top Chef‘s Padma Lakshmi, The Daily Show‘s Jessica Williams, Saturday Night Live‘s Ana Gasteyer, Stranger ThingsCara Buono, director Morgan Spurlock, and Karreuche Tran.

During the event, Will Ferrell got into costume as former President George W. Bush for a funny sketch!

FYI: Samantha is wearing an Altuzarra tuxedo. Padma is wearing a Bibhu Mohapatra gown. Cara is wearing a Cristina Ottaviano dress. Ali is wearing Monica Vinader jewelry.
