Colin Jost Height

I was at Harvard when Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, and I begged him not to do it.

~ Colin Jost

American comedian, actor, and writer, Colin Jost is perhaps best known for his work for Saturday Night Live (SNL) since 2005.

You can say Colin Jost is of average height. IMDb lists his height as 5' 10½" -- but we have our doubts -- for Colin Jost looks very fond of wearing some big-ass shoes, and also because he looked just a bit shorter than Chris Rock who is really 5'10".

After comparing Colin Jost's height to that of Scarlett Johansson (5'3" barefoot), Cecily Strong (5'8"), Michael Che (6' 1½"), and some others, we think Mr. Jost looks around an inch shorter than his IMDb height.

The real height of Colin Jost is

5'9½" or 176 cm

Colin Jost at his core is a comedian, so naturally, he has some good things to tell you:

Colin Jost on earning a living by writing for a comedy magazine at Harvard.

Before I went to a meeting at the 'Harvard Lampoon,' I had no idea that there was even a comedy magazine at Harvard, let alone that you could write comedy potentially for a living.

Colin Jost on Twitter.

Having Twitter on your phone is like being with a journalist that hates you 24 hours a day. Anything you say on that can be spun. Truly, that's what you have to think of it as.

Colin Jost on his love of buffalo wings.

I love buffalo wings and eat them at least three times a week.

Colin Jost on the double nature of golf courses on Staten Island.

Almost all the golf courses in Staten Island double as something else.

Colin Jost on helping with the most basic need.

When you contribute to food banks or give money that goes to having meals delivered, you're meeting the most basic need. It's such a direct way to help.

Colin Jost on hunger and laugh.

It doesn't get better than making people laugh and also making sure people don't go hungry.

Colin Jost on getting better at writing and performing.

I always tell people, when they ask me what to do to be a writer or to be a performer, the key is to go to a place where there are a lot of other people who are trying to do the same thing as you and taking it very seriously.

Colin Jost on the combination of creativity and logic.

It's not an easy job to think creatively and then also have to think logistically.

Colin Jost on being always drawn toward comedy.

Whatever I did, I always gravitated toward trying to be funny. If I was with friends, we were joking around. If I wrote for the newspaper, it would be a humor column. If I acted, I wanted to do comedy.

Colin Jost on his major in university.

I majored in the history and literature of Russia and Britain. It has not helped my career.

Colin Jost on his mom being the breadwinner in the family.

My mom was the breadwinner in my family. I always thought, 'That's how it is.' I never thought that was the exception.
