Highlights from Full Frontal with Samantha Bee “Not the White House Correspondents Dinner”

Whether this becomes a new annual ritual or not, Samantha Bee and her Full Frontal team from TBS put on a heckuva show Saturday night in Washington, D.C., with their first “Not the White House Correspondents Dinner” special.

Among the top highlights:

A clip reel of comedians taking digs at President Trump. Among them: Billy Eichner, Robin Thede, Norman Lear, Bridget Everett, Patton Oswalt, Rhea Butcher, Cameron Esposito, Kumail Nanjiani, Carl Reiner, Janelle James, Paula Pell, Jordan Carlos, Retta.

Will Ferrell reprised his George W. Bush impersonation to show us how W doesn’t seem so bad now, does he?

And Bee, with help from George Takei in a spoof of Amazon’s Man in the High Castle, watches a film proving an alternate timeline in which Bee got to roast President Hillary Clinton instead.
