The host of "The Soup" is coming to Washington.

The White House Correspondents' Association says Joel McHale will host its annual dinner on May 3 in the nation's capital. The group said Friday that the star of NBC's "Community" and E!'s pop-culture show "The Soup" will provide entertainment for the centennial White House Correspondents' Dinner.
