Conan O'Brien to Headline 2013 White House Correspondents' Dinner

This year, late-night host Conan O'Brien will be headlining the White House Correspondents' Dinner. The appearance will mark the second time the comedian and talk show has hosted the event.

White House Correspondents Association president Ed Henry tweeted the news on Wednesday:" Thrilled to reveal @ConanObrien has agreed to headline White House Correspondent Association's scholarship dinner April 27"

In addition to the dinner, , O'Brien reportedly "privately agreed to join forces with the Correspondents' Association on other initiatives focused on the group's scholarship fund."

Known for his spontaneous hosting style, which has been characterized as "awkward, self-deprecating humor," O'Brien's late-night programs combine the "lewd and wacky with more elegant, narrative-driven short films (remotes)."

He has hosted Conan since 2010 and has also hosted such events as The Emmy Awards and Christmas in Washington. O'Brien has been the subject of a documentary, Conan O'Brien Can't Stop (2011), and has also hosted a 32-city live comedy tour. He last hosted the White House Correspondent's dinner in 1995.
