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."

Although an unfortunate and extremely tragic incident has marred the original title of this film, The Watch (previously Neighborhood Watch), has more in line with Tom Hanks' 1989 movie, The Burbs, inasmuch as it's about a bunch of nosy dudes (Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Richard Ayoade, and Jonah Hill) figuring out all the weirdness going on in their neighborhood. This trailer is Not Safe For Work, btw.
If you remember MTV during its late 90s/early 00s heyday of awesome shows like Clone High and Undressed, then you might remember their stab at lampooning the boy band craze with their sitcom, 2gether. The remaining living members of the show are reuniting for a Q&A and performance at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, which begs the question, Jon Lovitz has a comedy club?
If you're feeling nostalgic, wanna see a trainwreck, or you might be a 15 year old girl, then seeing this kid belt out songs from every Blink-182 album in under a minute may be a good way to start your day. Or you might feel ashamed that you find yourself singing along with some of these jams.
