It may have been the one job in comedy most didn’t want – but that doesn’t mean Hasan Minhaj didn’t dress to impress at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
While the 2017 White House Correspondents’ Dinner will be remembered not for who was there but rather for who wasn’t there, headliner Hasan Minhaj made news with several quips about both the current commanding officer and the news media – some landed, and some did not. This year’s dinner, void of the President of the United States and suffering from competition from comedian Samantha Bee’s own event at the same time, was however a perfect proving ground for the young Minhaj and reviews have been generally positive, especially considering the admittedly difficult circumstances. But we’re here to ask the important question: did he wear a watch, and if so, what was it?
Hasan Minhaj did indeed wear a watch as host of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and a pretty nice one at that – he wore a TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber Five with date, a nice and relatively subdued choice in line with the audience he was addressing – a room full of journalists. The cheap replica watch is 39mm in diameter and retails for $2,400. You can read more about it here.
