Guess who's coming to dinner? None other than Louis C.K.
The comedian has been selected as the featured speaker for the 68th Annual Radio & Television Congressional Correspondents' Dinner, to be held in June.
According to a press release, the black tie event is "traditionally attended by the President, the Congressional Leadership, media executives, Capitol Hill broadcast journalists and prominent newsmakers."
The comic is perhaps best known for his starring role in the FX original comedy series "Louie" and his stand-up work, which includes his recent comedy special, “Louis C.K.: Live at The Beacon Theater.”
