It’s the last White House Correspondents Dinner of the Obama administration, and you can expect the usual fanfare: Red carpet, big stars, dinner and comedy from the President himself.
Hosted by Larry Wilmore of Comedy Central’s “Nightly Show” (check out a preview of his performance here), big names in politics and entertainment will be all dressed up and rubbing elbows at the Washington Hilton. But you can watch the whole event on your couch in sweats — even if you’re not near a TV.
Coverage starts on C-SPAN at 6 p.m. with the red carpet. The political network will be live streaming the entire shindig on its website as well as on TV. In the past, the White House has also live streamed the event, but it hasn’t yet announced if it will be this year.
MSNBC will also begin live streaming the event at around 7:30 p.m., when dinner is scheduled to kick off. Obama and Wilmore’s speeches are to start around 9:45 p.m., according to the schedule — however, they usually start later.
Washingtonpost.com will begin streaming with Obama’s speech.
The event is expected to end around 11 p.m.
If you do prefer to watch on TV, it will be airing on C-SPAN, along with CNN starting at 7 p.m., Fox News at 8 p.m. and MSNBC at 9 p.m. C-SPAN and CNN will also broadcast encores of the dinner right after its first airing.
