Rio Grande Valley Extravaganza



McAllen, Texas (March 20, 2019) – Colin Jost is a comedian and writer who is most well-known for appearing as one of the anchors on SNL's news sketch Weekend Update and will be the featured entertainment at the 16th Annual Stars Extravaganza in McAllen, Texas on Friday – April 26, 2019.

Jost was re-named one of four co-head writers in December. Jost has won four Writers Guild Awards, a Peabody Award and has been nominated for multiple Emmy Awards for his writing on "SNL." He also wrote and starred in the Paramount/Netflix film "Staten Island Summer," based on his days as a lifeguard growing up in New York.

Each year, Stars Scholarship Fund looks for entertainment that will bring our guests an experience and insight that most people are not privy to. This year's event is no different. Guests will have access to Colin Jost's unbelievably funny stand-up comedy show. Colin's comedy covers topics that appeal to everyday people. He comments on things like aging, relationships and kooky family members.

The Stars Extravaganza is a private event for sponsors of Stars Scholarship Fund. Local businesses are invited to support our initiatives by becoming sponsors of the Rio Grande Valley Extravaganza. Our sponsors will enjoy the benefits of attending the Extravaganza, which includes a private event prior to Colin Jost's comedy show and year-round media exposure.
