Conan O’Brien to headline White House Correspondents’ Assn. dinner
Mr. O’Brien is going to Washington.
Conan O’Brien has been selected to headline the White House Correspondents’ Assn.'s annual dinner.
It will be the second time that O’Brien, who hosts the TBS late-night show “Conan,” has performed at the event, which will be held April 27. O’Brien appeared at the 1995 dinner when he was starting his 16-year-run on NBC’s “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.”
“Conan is one of television’s most innovative and influential talents, and I am absolutely thrilled that he has agreed to be this year’s featured act,” said association President Ed Henry in a statement.
