Wednesday, the White House Correspondents Association announced that Michelle Wolf will be hosting the association's yearly dinner on Saturday, April 28. Wolf, a Late Night with Seth Meyers alum
, has been on a steep rise these past four years. She leapt from Late Night
to The Daily Show,
briefly dwelling in a self-created digital series called Now Hiring with Michelle Wolf
She ended 2017 with an HBO special titled Nice Lady,
and entered 2018 with a bang: In early February, Netflix announced that Wolf would helm her own weekly talk show
to premiere later this year. It's no longer acceptable to refer to her as "up-and-coming"; Michelle Wolf has up-and-come. Her former boss Seth Meyers dubbed it "The Year of the Wolf
" on Twitter.
