Michael Che’s April Fool’s Day Prank on Colin Jost

Michael Che pulled an April Fool’s Day prank on Colin Jost that his “Weekend Update” co-host won’t soon forget. During Saturday’s episode of “Saturday Night Live,” which was hosted by Quinta Brunson, Che and Jost anchored what seemed like a standard “weekend update” full of jokes about the recent indictment of the former president donald trump. But unfortunately for Jost, none of his jokes seemed to fall off.

The longtime “SNL” star cracked up on an inevitable flick of Stormy Daniels and the former president’s attorney, which was met with polite laughter. Then Che told a Trump-themed joke and the crowd went wild. When Che sent the segment back to Jost, his co-host was starting to look nervous when someone in the audience shouted, “You stink!” Poor Jost buried his head in his hands when Che revealed he told the audience not to laugh at his friend’s jokes.

“I told them not to make fun of you for April Fool’s Day,” Che confessed. A relieved Jost shared how he was freaking out. “I was like, ‘Am I not a mic?'” he laughed. “And then I was like, ‘Oh, I just suck. “”

Che tried to continue, but Jost was still reeling from his fear. “You are evil,” he joked. When his co-host sent the segment back to him after the prank was revealed, Jost couldn’t hold on. “That’s the meanest thing you’ve ever done to me,” he said. “I’m covered in sweat.”

For his part, Che couldn’t help but laugh as the crowd tried to make his pal feel better with a loud cheer. But Jost didn’t have it. “Don’t even try that now,” he told the audience.

Though it made his co-host sweat, Che’s prank was ingenious – and that should inspire Jost to try and come up with something equally evil for Che in time for the show’s next April Fool’s Day episode.
