The White House Correspondents’ Dinner 2009
Until a good comedy comes out into theaters, the biggest laughs I’ve gotten recently came from the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where Wanda Sykes absolutely KILLED. She ripped into Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Sarah Palin like they were fellow presenters at a Friar’s Club Roast, and Barack Obama was the roastee himself, where she mocked his basketball skills and his frequent shirtless photos taken by the media. Her warm-up comic was no slouch either– the President himself. Unlike other presidents who’ve done one-liners at the Correspondents’ Dinner, Obama came off as very self-deprecating and mocked fellow politicians without seeming elitist.
