Every year, the White House Correspondents' Association holds an annual dinner that raises money for scholarships, as well as honors some of the hardest working journalists in the business. And each year, the White House correspondents' dinner is quite the entertaining event. Normally, the president himself will attend — and even crack a few jokes — while the event is hosted by a top-notch entertainer like Larry Wilmore or Stephen Colbert

This year, President Donald Trump has announced that he will not attend the event. Fortunately, though, the dinner will still be hosted by a talented comedian — The Daily Show's Hasan Minhaj. Even without the president and his administration in attendance, the White House correspondents' dinner, or "nerd prom," is a must-watch event. So, here is how you can do just that. 

If you will be near your television you can watch the event live on C-Span beginning at 9:30 p.m. Eastern on Saturday, April 29. If you would rather livestream the event, you can do so on C-Span's website. In the past, the White House has also livestreamed the event, but with the president not in attendance, it is unclear at this time whether that will be an option.
