Joel McHale to Emcee 100th White House Correspondents' Dinner

by at . Comments

Joel McHale is graduating from Greendale and heading to the White House.

The hilarious actor and Soup host has been selected as emcee of this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner, an annual event that skewers both the media and the politicians they cover.

It takes place on May 3 and will be broadcast on CSPAN.

Tweeted WHCA President Steven Thomma in announcing the news:

“We’re thrilled that Joel will headline the dinner when we celebrate our centennial. 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. Washington can use a little good-natured ribbing."

Past hosts have included Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien and Stephen Colbert.

“This is very cool & the website to apply to host it worked perfectly," McHale joked of the gig.
