According to Chicago Tribune, actor and comedian Joel McHale will be the featured performer and host of the annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. The event will be attended by members of the media, celebrities, and the U.S. president.
McHale is the star of NBC's comedy "Community" and is the host of E! network's "The Soup." "He's sharp, funny, and just the type of comic who can navigate the unique challenge of our dinner, making fun of Democrats, Republicans and especially the news media," WHCA President and McClatchy Co political editor Steven Thomma said in a statement.
In a Twitter post after the announcement, McHale said: "My material will be equally offensive to all & over within 30 min - just like a Congressional work year."
The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards took place this weekend and the comedic duo of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey has done it again! Comedic stunts such as "accidentally" mispronouncing Tom Hanks' name and a timely impression of Michael Bay kept the laughter rolling all night. Digg has put together a short highlight reel that nicely sums up the reason we all love these two fantastic comedians.
