"Larry's edgy, even provocative, brand of humor means he's certainly up to the task of skewering politicians of all ideological stripes, and we don't expect the nation's news media to escape unscathed, either," Carol Lea, president of the White House Correspondents' Association said. "We are thrilled that Larry has accepted our invitation to be the featured comedian at our annual dinner, which will be the last during the Obama White House."

Wilmore himself added on Twitter that he is "beyond excited" to take the podium at the event.

We know that the comedian has already thrown punches at Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Ben Carson, even calling out his "ridiculous" campaign ads, so D.C.'s residents better look out.
