On Saturday night, a unique mix of entertainers, media tycoons and politicians convened for the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington D.C

The President of the United States turned into a comedian this weekend, at the highly-prestigious annual White House Correspondents Dinner, which celebrated its 100th anniversary this year. Obama took time to poke fun at himself and the myriad of political elite and celebrities at the star-studded event. 

The president began his speech mocking the petitions of roadblocks his administration did last year, sarcastically calling it his "stellar 2013." After his humorous welcoming speech, Joel McHale — who stars on NBC's Community and hosts The Soup  followed Obama with his own comedic roast of the President.
