Community star and host of E's The Soup, Joel McHale, will officially be this year's funny man in charge of hosting The White House Correspondents' DInner on May 3rd.
Arguably one of DC's most notable events, the nerd prom will be celebrating its centennial anniversary this year and has featured hilarious headliners like Seth Meyers, Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmell and last year's Conan O'Brien.
McHale hasn't wasted anytime in poking fun of our government. In response to the announcement, he tweeted, "My material will be equally offensive to all & over within 30 minutes - just like a Congressional work year."
WHCD host alum, Jimmy Kimmel, sat down with McHale on Joey Kimmel Live! this week to give him some advice. "You're in for a really weird night," said Kimmel.
Check out the video after the jump where the two comedians talk security checks, pre-show jitters and cursing at the dinner. More»

The handful of guests that witnessed this moment at last night's White House Correspondents' Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton pretty much died of cuteness when one of the Hilton's employees freaked out with joy when she spotted Reese Witherspoon. I mean have you ever seen a happier face? The Hilton employee disappeared into the sea of other A-list celebrities after the photo was taken (did she recognize any of the others??)...and hi Kate Michael!

She will be there with her defense attorney, too.
Let's hope she gets seated with comedian David Cross so he has someone to do coke with at WHCD this year!

Dad: "No but like what does the White House Correspondents' Dinner really entail? Like what does it actually mean?"
Me: "Well, it's like supposed to be a dinner that recognizes the outstanding works by journalists over the year in their coverage of all things White House related. But, it's pretty much just a chance for all of the nerds in DC to get their photos taken with celebrities in order to build their cred with their children/on Facebook."
