Colin Jost’s Weekend Update Joke Has Scarlett Johansson as the Punchline

SNL Joke Swap on Weekend Update Includes Scarlett Johansson Reference

Title: Colin Jost Makes Awkward Joke About Wife Scarlett Johansson on ‘SNL’ Weekend Update

In a recent episode of Saturday Night Live, co-anchor Michael Che couldn’t resist poking fun at Colin Jost’s wife, Scarlett Johansson, during their annual joke swap on “Weekend Update.” The awkward moment left Jost visibly uncomfortable but entertained the audience.

Jost, 41, saw Johansson’s name pop up on the teleprompter and joked, “ChatGPT has released a new voice assistant feature inspired by Scarlett Johansson’s AI character in ‘Her.’ I’ve never bothered to watch because without that body, what’s the point of listening?” The joke elicited laughter from the audience and Che, who teased Jost about his discomfort.

The duo, who have been co-anchoring “Weekend Update” since 2014, have a tradition of trading jokes around Christmas and at the end of the broadcast season. Johansson, 39, has admitted to feeling nervous watching the show without knowing what to expect, given the live and unpredictable nature of SNL.

Johansson and Jost’s relationship started when she hosted an episode of SNL in 2017, and they tied the knot three years later. The couple welcomed their son Cosmo in 2023, adding to Johansson’s daughter, Rose, from a previous relationship.

Jost has not shied away from incorporating his wife into his jokes, with recent references including Johansson as the breadwinner of the household. Their dynamic on and off-screen continues to entertain audiences, making them a beloved couple in the entertainment industry.

Saturday Night Live airs on NBC Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET, providing viewers with a weekly dose of laughter and entertainment. Despite occasional awkward moments, the chemistry between Che and Jost continues to keep the show engaging and humorous for fans around the world.
