The 22nd Annual Steve Allen Comedy Show

Presented by Windermere Real Estate, this Unforgettable Evening of Comedy Will Star Colin Jost on Tuesday, November 7, 2023


For 22 years, this signature event has brought our community together to share food, drink and laughter in the company of great entertainers – and for a great cause – to help prevent and end youth homelessness. We hope you’ll join us on Tuesday, November 7th for a memorable evening with Colin Jost at the Portland Art Museum. Colin Jost serves as a head writer at Saturday Night Live, televisions longest running and most successful sketch and comedy show now in its 47th season, where he also co-anchors “Weekend Update” alongside fellow cast member Michael Che.

Colin has won five Writers Guild Awards, two Peabody Awards and has been nominated for 13 Emmy Awards for his writing on “SNL.” In 2018, Colin & Michael co-hosted the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Colin not only wrote “Staten Island Summer,” a coming of age comedy, but he can also be seen in hit films “How to Be Single,” “Coming 2 America,” live-action animation film “Tom and Jerry.”

Jost debuted his New York Times bestselling memoir, A Very Punchable Face in the summer of 2020. His book is a series of essays which documents pivotal moments in his life including growing up in Staten Island in a family of firefighters, commuting three hours a day to high school, attending Harvard while Facebook was created and more. For every accomplishment and absurd moment, there is an honest, emotional one.

The Steve Allen Comedy Show, founded by Windermere Real Estate, has raised more than $7.5 million for New Avenues, and this year is critically important to furthering our mission to end youth homelessness through prevention and intervention programs and services. We hope you will join us on Tuesday November 7th for an evening of community, comedy, and raising funds for a great cause.
