Comedic actress Wanda Sykes has been tapped to perform at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner May 9, the Associated Press reports. “The first thing I did when they asked me to do this gig—I made sure my taxes were paid,” Sykes joked. President Barack Obama is expected to take part in the event, which will see more than 2,000 people in attendance, including White House press members, the Washington elite and Hollywood celebrities, the news service says.
