Every year, the White House Correspondents Association seeks out a comedian to hosts its annual dinner, which has the creative title of the White House Correspondents Dinner. Last year, Jimmy Kimmel served as the host and watched as President Barack Obama took a little poke at his BFF, Donald Trump, and joked about telling jokes for Kim Kardashian.
This year, Obama may tell some jokes at Trump's expense again (fingers crossed), but he will not be opening for a network late night host - instead, he will be opening for a cable one.
Conan O'Brien has been selected to host the April 27th dinner in Washington D.C., according to Fox News correspondent Ed Henry. The night serves as a chance for the media and the government officials they cover to break bread and enjoy each other's company for one night.
The event is always star studded. Last year, Kardashian, Claire Danes, Zooey Deschanel, Kevin Spacey, Sofia Vergara, John Legend and Lindsay Lohan, to name a few attended.
This will not be O'Brien's first WHCD rodeo. He hosted in 1995, in the early days of his NBC series, Late Night. That evening he performed for President Bill Clinton. Now, nearly two decades later, he hosts for another Democratic president.
Will Andy Richter and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog be backing him up? Only time will tell.
