HBO talk show host John Oliver recently told NPR that the White House Correspondents' Dinner is where jokes "go to die," but that certainly wasn't the case during Saturday night's (May 3) event when Joel McHale and President Barack Obama took the stage.
Dazzling the crowd of reporters, politicians and Hollywood stars, both speakers drew out a number of laughs, and to be fair, plenty of duds to the enamoured crowd in the Washington, D.C. Hilton for the 100th annual event.
Bringing together the best and brightest in the business, the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner kicked off in Washington, D.C. earlier this evening (May 3).
A number of Hollywood's biggest stars stepped out in the nation's capital for the splendid evening and mingled with the leaders of America while rocking their lovely designer goods on the red carpet. Sofia Vergara struck a few poses in a gold and ivory dress while posing with her fiance Nick Loeb and joining fellow "Modern Family" pals Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet.
According to Politico, the “American Hustle” star visited the White House on February 11th for the State Dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande and talked the Commander-in-Chief into being a part of Zach’s Funny or Die show.
Making a rousing return to the " Ellen DeGeneres Show," 44th United States President Barack Obama answered a few questions about his family life and life in Washington.
Making his appearance from what Ellen called the "Ellen Blue Room" at the White House, the president commented on Ellen's staggering celebrity selfie photograph from the Academy Awards, saying, "I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt myself, getting a bunch of celebrities in the background...feeding them pizza."
