(AP) Late night talk show host and comedian Conan O’Brien will be spending a late night with President Barack Obama.

The White House Correspondents’ Association has chosen O’Brien as the featured act for its annual dinner on April 27.

Association president Ed Henry called O’Brien one of television’s most innovative and influential talents.

Henry added: As social media has changed all aspects of the media business, Conan has embraced this shifting landscape to become a creative force both online as well as in the traditional television model.

The association dinner is traditionally attended by the president and first lady, government officials and journalists. Proceeds finance scholarships and awards that recognize journalism excellence.

O’Brien appears prepared. On Monday he tweeted: In honor of President’s Day, I won’t be getting along with Congress.
