Ever since FNC’s Greta Van Susteren helped get Louis C.K. scrapped from the Radio & TV Congressional Correspondents’ Dinner, people have been wondering who will replace him. The comedian dropped out last month saying that he “just didn’t want to do it anymore.” Among other things, Van Susteren had called him a “pig” for using “filthy” language about women in his routines. She cited the C-word.
The new host is Wayne Brady. We noticed that CNN’s Peter Hamby reported it on Twitter this morning.
Brady is known for improvisational comedy. He can also sing, so this ought to be interesting. Of course, not as intriguing as Louis C.K. would have been.
“Fresh off three nights of sold out shows at The Kennedy Center, we are thrilled that Wayne Brady will return to DC as the featured speaker for this year’s RTCA Dinner” commented Jay McMichael of CNN in a subsequent release we received. McMichael is the first photojournalist to chair the black tie event. “This is an evening you’ll want to experience. We’re shaking things up, showcasing the unexpected, and delivering lots of laughs.”
