Brian Williams Embarrasses Daughter With Peter Pan Announcement

Last night, NBC Nightly News’ Brian Williams did not shy away from reporting the news that his daughter Allison Williams will be playing Peter Pan in NBC’s live musical broadcast this December. The anchor dead-panned his way through the short news update, before arriving at his unique angle on it.

“Family members confirm she’s been rehearsing for this role since the age of three and they look forward to seeing her fly,” Williams reported, as a photo of his daughter as a toddler wearing a Peter Pan costume appeared on screen.
