A few months after her last visit to Minneapolis, Michelle Wolf recorded and released her critically acclaimed special, Nice Lady, on HBO. Shortly after that, she hosted the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, drawing the ire of some in the media. Her opening line that night: “Like a porn star says when she’s about to have sex with a Trump, ‘Let’s get this over with.’” The Washington Post called the monologue “downright nasty,” while many rushed to her defense. “The oh-my-stars-and-garters reaction of various journalists, sundry critics and, now, the association itself, seems misplaced,” Variety wrote at the time. Speaking of correspondents, Wolf was one for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, and hosted the Netflix talk show The Break with Michelle Wolf. Among her many fans is comedian Jay Leno. “When I watch Michelle Wolf now I’m seeing a comic in her prime,” he gushed on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast last fall. “I’m seeing her burning white-hot, and she has such fun. I love watching a comedian who enjoys performing. She’s got that big smile; she’s laughing at her own jokes, but in a good way.” It’s not all politics, though, as she also talks about social issues, celebrity culture, dating, and the environment.
