Strong joined SNL in 2012 and is best known as a past “Weekend Update” anchor as well as “The Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Conversation with at a Party.” She will be just the fourth woman to perform at the dinner in its 82 years.

Parsons noted that Strong isn’t a stranger to politics and media—her father, Bill Strong, served as the Associated Press bureau chief covering the Illinois Statehouse.
