Written by on June 16, 2024

Pope Francis met with over 100 comedians, including Whoopi Goldberg, Jimmy Fallon, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Chris Rock, Stephen Colbert, and Conan O’Brien, at Vatican City. The gathering was a prelude to his later meeting with President Joe Biden at the G7 summit. The Pope praised the comedians for their ability to unite people through laughter and emphasized the need to learn from their ability to bridge diverse realities. The Vatican organized the event to celebrate human diversity and the impact of comedy on contemporary culture. Goldberg humorously offered the Pope a cameo in “Sister Act 3.” After his speech, Pope Francis greeted each comedian individually, sharing laughs and jokes. Later, he will attend the G7 summit to discuss AI regulations, a first for a pontiff. The Pope’s schedule also includes meetings with various world leaders, including Ukraine’s President Zelensky, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau, and French President Macron.
