Next up on open mic night -- the President of the United States
Obama killed. He should be the new host of THE DAILY SHOW.
My guess is Nixon wasn’t hilarious at his Correspondents Dinners.
I missed the Red Carpet show. Was Sam Rubin & Mindy Burbano there to ask Katie Couric if she’s had a colonoscopy lately?
Comics like to tryout their material. Wouldn’t it be cool to be at your local comedy club on a Thursday night and the President of the United States shows up unannounced at midnight to test some jokes?
Of course “unannounced” in Los Angeles means every street in the city is closed for 72 hours. There is still gridlock from his March appearance. (Again, I will vote for any candidate from any party who promises never to come to Los Angeles.)
The real laughs came after the event when CNN had the obligatory roundtable analysis. Four of the unfunniest people on the planet weighing in on his material and delivery. Makes you wonder if they have same expertise when analyzing politics.
Based on her lackluster performance I can only assume she’ll be asked to host next year’s Oscars.
How funny could Carter have been?
If Obama had delivered this speech as his State-of-the-Union he’d be way more popular.
Was Amy Schumer unavailable?
After maybe eleven minutes in office, has there ever been in recent times a President who wasn’t at odds with the media?
The President made a reference to ABC’s BLACKISH. See, NBC? This is what happens when you put on sitcoms that people watch.
The funniest part of the anger-translator bit was Obama starting to lose it. Otherwise, the routine went on too long.
Regarding that bit, thank you Mr. President for getting Keegan-Michael Key instead of Tyler Perry.
Tea Leoni was at the Correspondents dinner. Why? Tea, you’re not really the Secretary-of-State. You’re just play-acting a role on a television show. Please don't announce your plans to run for President.
How many irate comments am I going to get today because I wrote a post that's even remotely political?
The big celeb of the night was not the President of the United States. It was Bradley Cooper. The POTUS finished third behind vlogger Bethany Mota.
How funny could Eisenhower have been?
