Daily Show reporter Roy Wood Jr. will host this year’s 2023 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which is set to take place on April 29 at the Washington Hilton.

The White House Correspondents Association announced Wood’s engagement on Thursday.

Roy Wood Jr. gives comedy a journalistic look. He’s funny — but he also makes his audience think while they laugh,” Tamara Keith, WHCA President, and NPR said about the comedian.

Keith said; “My aim with this year’s dinner is to lift up the importance of a free and independent press to a functioning democracy, so I am thrilled to be able to feature a comedian who gets what journalism is all about.”

In addition to The Daily Show, Wood also has a tv special, “Imperfect Messenger” on Paramount+.

The 2022 event marked the return of the live White House Correspondents Dinner after two years without the event amid the pandemic. Daily Show host Trevor Noah hosted the show last year.

Traditionally, the President and First Lady attend this event, and indeed, Biden attended last year’s party. President Trump skipped the event during his tenure.

“It’s an honor to be part of a longstanding tradition of celebrating members of the media who work hard to uncover the truth and hold our government to account,” Wood Jr said. It will go down in the history books or not, depending on what state you live in.”
