[Updated] Colin Jost is the head writer at Saturday Night Live, and he has been with the show since 2005. This season, he joined Cecily Strong as the co-anchor on "Weekend Update" after the departure of Seth Meyers. 

Though Jost is best known as a writer, he started as a stand-up comic, and he introduced himself nationally as a stand-up when he performed in 2012 on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

We have a pair of tickets to give away to see Jost Friday night at the Civic Theatre. Register here for a chance to win. The contest closes Thursday at midnight.

 

Updated May 27, 5:51 p.m.

The contest closes Thursday at midnight, not Friday as originally written.
