Jost, who joined Saturday Night Live (SNL) as a writer in 2005 at the age of 22, shortly after receiving his Harvard degree, then rose to the position of writing supervisor from 2009 to 2012 before taking over as co-head writer from that year till the present.

Producer Lorne Michaels asked him if he might perform the Weekend Update feature over the summer break after the 2012–2013 season because co–anchor Seth Meyers would shortly be going to helm Late Night with Seth Meyers. Jost agreed and took Meyers' place in the episode that aired on March 1, 2014. As Norm Macdonald's tone was the one with which Jost grew up in high school, Jost cites Macdonald as a major inspiration for his work as an Update anchor. Also mentioned as an influence is Tina Fey.

He was chosen as a New Face at the 2009 Montreal Just For Laughs festival and has since made many appearances there as well as in the 2011 and 2012 Chicago Just For Laughs festivals (2010, 2012).

An example fee to book Colin Jost is in the starting range of $150,000-$299,000. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
