Wanda Sykes, a standup comedian and actor known for her tart commentary on current events, has been chosen as the entertainer at the annual White House correspondents dinner in May.
Sykes, an African-American, is expected to get the chance to make fun of President Barack Obama.
It is a tradition that the president attends the black-tie gala, which attracts about 2,000 people, including the White House press corps and Hollywood celebrities.
Sykes says she already is planning ways to poke fun at the president, including about his reputation for being "a little long-winded."
