Zinger Key Points
  • The annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner takes place Saturday night.
  • President Biden will make his second straight appearance at the event.

The annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner takes place Saturday night and will feature a list of media personalities and celebrities alongside the president, first lady, vice president and second gentleman.

Here are the key details.

The Event: The annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner will take place on Saturday, April 29, at the Washington Hilton in Washington D.C. The event comes less than a week after President Joe Biden announced his official campaign for the 2024 election.

The event's distinguished guests will be Biden, First Lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, according to a Deadline report.

The host of the event will be comedian and “The Daily Show” correspondent Roy Wood Jr.

President Biden is expected to give a speech that will poke fun at himself and other. In his 2022 speech, the president made several cracks about his predecessor, former President Donald Trump.

WHCA President Tamara Keith said the annual event has “proven to be a very important gathering for Washington.” Keith will also give a speech during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

“It is our biggest and primary way of raising money both for the scholarship and the work that the WHCA does on a daily, hourly basis to improve the ability of journalists to do their jobs,” Keith said.

Several pre-events and after-parties are planned and will be hosted by various media organizations.
