Kick off the summer with some laughs! Comedy writer Colin Jost will be coming to Minneapolis on June 22. Jost serves as a head writer at Saturday Night Live and has won five Writers Guild Awards, two Peabody Awards, and has been nominated for 12 Emmy Awards for his writing on the show. He has also been published multiple times in The New Yorker, New York Times Magazine and the Huffington Post.
In July 2020, Jost debuted his memoir, “A Very Punchable Face.” The memoir is a series of essays, which documents pivotal moments in Jost’s life including growing up in Staten Island in a family of firefighters, commuting three hours a day to high school, attending Harvard while Facebook was created, and more. For every accomplishment and absurd moment, there is an honest, emotional one, told with a healthy dose of self-deprecation.
Come witness his humor and wit at the State Theatre this Summer!
