Michelle Wolf discusses losing her anonymity following the White House Correspondents' Dinner
The Break with Michelle Wolf host performed her White House Correspondents' Dinner set 15 times at New York's Comedy Cellar, and her agent feared it would leak out. “My agent’s biggest fear was that someone was making a recording and was going to release it, like, the Friday beforehand, but nope!” she says. In the aftermath of the dinner, she says, “I literally just left D.C. as fast as I could." Now that Wolf is concentrating on her Netflix show, she's avoiding focusing too much on the news because she hates when people learn of word events through comedy. “I think news should have that responsibility, to be accurate," she says. "It’s not fair that comedy has that responsibility. But jokes are always funnier when they’re rooted in truth.” ALSO: The Break delivers something weirder and more specific to Wolf's particular spiky strengths.
