Get to know Colin Jost by reading below about what makes this actor and writer worth knowing
You've probably seen Colin Jost beaming at the cameras while standing beside the actress Scarlett Johansson or on Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update".

Browse below to learn more about this talented star:
Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson recently had a baby
Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson were wed last 2020 in an intimate ceremony. The couple is very private when it comes to their personal lives which made Scarlett's pregnancy an exciting surprise when the news blew up. Recently, Colin made an Instagram post revealing that Scarlett gave birth to their son Cosmo.
Colin Jost is a Harvard alum
Colin Jost has the smarts when it comes to writing as he attended Harvard and majored in history and literature. He even became president of the humour magazine, Harvard Lampoon, which most likely harnessed his skills. It wasn't long until Colin became the head writer of SNL, and eventually, in front of the camera and behind the famous "Weekend Update" desk.
Colin Jost's friendship with Michael Che
Sure, Colin Jost is in love with Scarlett Johansson. But Colin and Michael Che also have a special bond. On SNL's "Weekend Update", Colin reports fictional news alongside Michael. But apart from performing this sketch together, the two have also been inseparable behind the camera. They've done interviews, fun segments and even a lie detector test together. The two are such good friends that Colin even hilariously referred to Michael as his personal "publicist", according to his new Instagram post, to deal with prying fans.

Colin Jost is also a stand-up comedian
If you think he's hilarious in recorded sketches, he's even funnier when he's doing stand-up comedy with the stories he shares alone. Perhaps it's also because of his background in literature or his skill in crafting jokes. Either way, there's something about the way Colin tells his stories. It's almost like a friend telling either the most ridiculous moment in his life or genuine experiences that we can relate to.
Colin wrote "A Very Punchable Face: A Memoir"
Colin Jost eventually released a well-written memoir about the many influences on his self and his career. Here, he talks about living in Staten Island and the people (and tries to change people's prejudices about the place), his experience with swimming, his mother, Harvard and many other interesting stories that helped shape Colin today. It's a memoir that will make you chuckle and admire the man's dedication and passion for the work he's in.
