The 2012 White House Correspondents Dinner

On this past Saturday night (April 28th) the the White House Correspondents Association held their annual dinner. This event, first held in 1920, has become a Washington, D.C. tradition and is usually attended by the President and Vice President. Thirteen presidents have attended this dinner, beginning with Calvin Coolidge in 1924. The dinner is traditionally held on the evening of the last Saturday in April at the Washington Hilton.

President Obama spoke at the dinner and was quite funny. Following is a YouTube video of his routine:



He was followed by ABC comedian and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel's remarks can be found here.
