Who is Colin Jost?
Colin Jost is an actor, writer, and comedian. He was born and reared on Staten Island, New York, and attended private school in Manhattan before graduating from Harvard University with a bachelor's degree. Jost was the president of The Harvard Lampoon, the university's notorious comedy journal, during his student years.
Jost joined Saturday Night Live as a writer in 2005. From 2012 to 2015, he rose swiftly through the ranks of the variety comedy program, acting as co-head writer. Jost took over as the "Weekend Update" anchor when Seth Meyers departed SNL to host "Late Night with Seth Meyers" in 2014.
He was eventually joined by Michael Che, and the two are now the longest-serving “Weekend Update” anchors in the show's history, as of 2019. For his work on "SNL," he has received five Writers Guild Awards, two Peabody Awards, and has been nominated for 12 Emmy Awards.
Jost also wrote and acted in the Paramount/Netflix picture "Staten Island Summer." It is based on his days as a lifeguard. A Very Punchable Face, his memoir, was released in July 2020.
