(CNN) - If you had the ear of the president and Washington journalists, what would you say?
Conan O'Brien, the comedian tapped to entertain at the White House Correspondents' Association annual dinner in April, has it figured out.
He plans to get geeky, nerdy and wonky at the event known to some as "nerd prom" - after the requisite comedy.
I'm honored to host the WH Correspondents dinner. Get ready for 2 minutes of jokes, then 40 minutes on public employee pension reform.—

Comedian Jimmy Kimmel followed President Barack Obama on the stage last year. For his part, Obama delivered jokes about the 2012 campaign, Donald Trump, and the Secret Service scandal involving South American prostitutes.
And he quipped, "I had a lot more material prepared, but I have to get the Secret Service home in time for their new curfew."
