In addition to Buffett, Hoda Kotb, author Walter Isaacson, Emeril Lagasse, actor Bryan Batt, political guru James Carville and New Orleans Saints legend Archie Manning are slated to lend their insights to “Mardi Gras for All Y’all,” which aims to help keep Carnival alive even though the actual parades have been canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Buffett Once Rescued SNL Cast Member Colin Jost in St. Barts

July 15th, 2020


In his new memoir ‘Jost the Facts’, SNL Weekend Update host and co-head writer Colin Jost describes a surfing incident in 2014 on St. Barts where Jimmy came to the rescue:

In 2014, Jost and his girlfriend Carmel Lobello were on vacation in St. Barts when Jost met Jimmy Buffett, who told him he was there because he always spends “a few days surfing wherever we open a new Margaritaville.” When Jost went surfing with Buffett and his family, he got “pinned against the rocks by my own leash” and was “bleeding because I sliced my foot open” as five-foot waves crashed into him. Buffett came to his rescue, paddled over to the rocks, and cut Jost loose with the knife that he surfs with — “(which, how awesome is it that Jimmy Buffett swims with a knife??).” The next day, when Jost tried to find Buffett to thank him for saving his life, he learned he “flew himself to Nevis to play golf for the day.”
