Newly elected Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie will deliver the Democratic “rebuttal” at the annual Legislative Correspondents Association political gridiron show.

Heastie, who was elected speaker earlier this year following the arrest of Manhattan Democrat Sheldon Silver, will be the first Assembly speaker in more than two decades to appear in the program, known as The LCA Show.

The annual event lampoons state government and politics and is the oldest political gridiron show in the country.

The Bronx Democrat is not exactly known for his love of reporters and the press in general, but the event could be an ice-breaking one for the new speaker.

The event is scheduled for Tuesday, June 9 at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center. A free dress rehearsal is scheduled for Monday night.

A Republican presenter for the program. is expected to be announced shortly.
