WASHINGTON, D.C. (X17online) - Saturday Night Live head writer Seth Meyers will host the 2011 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner at the Washington D.C. Hilton April 30.

The Weekend Update sketch star has written five years for Saturday Night Live, and but is not new to hosting gigs. Meyers headlined the ESPYs earlier this year.

"Seth is very smart, very sharp and a very funny observer of the political scene, and we're looking forward to seeing him on April 30." WHCA president David Jackson said of the writer.

Hopefully he will be a bigger hit than host Jay Leno, who was said to have recycled much of his old material at the dinner event last year.
