2015 Nerd Prom: Starting Act

Right now, guests are chatting up each other at the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD).  So while I wait for tonight’s main event, here’s one of the most noteworthy appearances (or controversial, depending on your view): Stephen Colbert at the 2006 WHCD.

I will live-blog the White House Correspondents’ Dinner–also known as the Nerd Prom, for better or worse–on April 25.

It promises to be a seriously funny time. Crafting remarks with all the funny lines and zingers audience have come to expect is no laughing matter. You can’t guarantee giggles on the fly. It’s no wonder presidents often enlist high-powered help for their remarks.

But more about that later. Let’s warm-up by watching President Obama deliver remarks during last year’s dinner.
