President Obama’s 2016 Stand-Up Comedy Routine

One thing I’ll miss about Pres­i­dent Oba­ma is his abil­i­ty to deliv­er a good joke at the White House Cor­re­spon­dents’ Din­ner. My favorite line from Sat­ur­day night:

And then there’s Ted Cruz. Ted had a tough week. He went to Indi­ana –- Hoosier coun­try –- stood on a bas­ket­ball court, and called the hoop a “bas­ket­ball ring.” What else is in his lex­i­con? Base­ball sticks? Foot­ball hats? But sure, I’m the for­eign one.


And it’s always nice to see John Boehn­er and Oba­ma shar­ing a good joke around a smoke. Fast for­ward to the 27 minute mark for that.

Below, we also have Lar­ry Wilmore’s cut­ting rou­tine:
