Jimmy Kimmel vs. Wayne Brady
Comedian Wayne Brady has been announced as the featured speaker at the upcoming Radio & Television Congressional Correspondents Dinner, which luckily for White House Correspondents Dinner entertainer Jimmy Kimmel, has been moved from the Spring to June.
Brady’s most recent DC gig was 3 nights of sold out performances at the Kennedy Center. Dinner Chairman Jay McMichael says “This is an evening you’ll want to experience. We’re shaking things up, showcasing the unexpected, and delivering lots of laughs.”
In addition to Brady’s acting, improv, singing, and dancing on television, film, and the stage, he also hosts the updated version of Let’s Make a Deal on CBS.
The Friday, June 8 dinner is traditionally attended by The President, the Congressional Leadership, media executives, Capitol Hill broadcast journalists and prominent newsmakers.
Look for a large team from ABC to be in the nation’s capitol to cheer Jimmy Kimmel on.
