President Obama does stand up comedy at the Whitehouse Correspondents Dinner.

Undoubtedly the funniest joke of all,

Quote:
I am glad that the only person whose ratings fell more than mine is here tonight. Great to see you, Jay. I’m also glad that I’m speaking first — because we’ve all seen what happens when somebody takes the time slot after Leno.


I might actually have to vote next election, I loved it. :lol:

I enjoyed watching those videos above. I had actually already heard about all of this in the USA Today news app on the iPhone, but it was much more enjoyable watching it :)

Can someone explain the Jay Leno joke which was quoted by Joebert above?

I am aware of Jay Leno and some of his stuff, but to me the joke doesn't make alot of sense because i don't know too much about his show.

That summarizes it all.

Super Summary:
Leno was forced into giving the tonight show to conan, and was given a primetime slot that was horrible ratings, and conan followed, this also removed the 10 news from local stations. So then a struggle for the tonight show happened with nbc, and it ended up conan being cut and leno taking his place.

Obama's joke (written by someone else) was that if he followed leno, then he would be cut and leno would take his place.

I don't get the humor of uncouth speeches. Bidens comment should not be laughed about, unless that type of language is acceptable.
