Is it that time already? You might still be hungover from inauguration (we are) but it’s time to start thinking about Nerd Prom 2013, also known as the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. It was announced today that this year’s host for the Washington Hilton event April 27 is Conan O’Brien.

It’s a second go at the event for Coco, the former host of Late Night With Conan O’Brien and The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien (he currently appears Mondays through Thursdays on TBS’s Conan. In 1995 the flame-haired comic poked fun at then-President Bill Clinton, Secret Service background checks (“It turns out technically I’m still a virgin,” he quipped), and C-SPAN, which airs the event.
