Excellent news: Conan O'Brien will be the headline entertainer at this year's White House Correspondents Association dinner. Conan last performed at the event, informally known as "nerd prom," in 1995. It's an inspired choice that could only be ruined by having Jay Leno show up to give the primetime performance, pushing Conan to 12:05 AM.
Previous headliners have included Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers, whose acts you can relive right now while awaiting Conan's April 27th appearance:
All of these people are a lot more entertaining than the Hootie and the Blowfish cover band that performed at my nerd prom.
