Colin Jost of SNL’s ‘Weekend Update’ coming to the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater

We are positively awash this week in local tour news the stars of Saturday Night Live.

On Wednesday, Chris Redd will headline a back-to-school comedy show at Orlando's CFE Arena for students at the University of Central Florida. From Friday to Sunday, Leslie Jones is headlining the Improv in Ybor City. And on Friday, Cecily Strong will headline this year's University of South Florida Round Up comedy show at the USF Sun Dome.

And today comes the news that "Weekend Update" co-host Colin Jost is coming to Clearwater.

Jost, who along with co-host Michael Che is hosting the Emmys on Sept. 17, will play the Capitol Theatre on Oct. 25. Tickets are $39.50 and up. Click here for details.

While a double bill with Che would be the dream scenario, we might also want to keep an eye out for Jost's girlfriend, Scarlett Johansson. Now all we need is a tour announcement from Ariana Grande with Pete Davidson in tow, and we'll be that much closer to completing our 2018 SNL set.
