The 5 Best White House Correspondents' Dinner Hosts

Originally posted 05/01/2014 01:15PM

The White House Correspondents' Association Dinner has come a long way since its inception in 1920. (For example, did you know that until 1962, it was only open to men, even though the WHCA's contained women? That year – at the urging of Helen Thomas – JFK refused to attend until the ban on women was lifted.)

In its early years, the dinner featured a mix of singers, dancers and comedians as performers; not until 1983 when Mark Russell headlined did the practice of having a comedian host the event become the norm.

Since then, the Dinner has become a springboard for politically inclined comics to showcase their best material. Here are our five faves. Good luck to this year's host Joel McHale: He's got some big shoes to fill.

From Satan to Swift: 5 Best Moments of Conan O'Brien's MTV Movie Awards Monologue

Originally posted 04/13/2014 10:40PM

Conan O'Brien has, by our count, delivered hundreds of thousands of monologues over the course of his career, so Sunday night's opening routine at the MTV Movie Awards was old hat for him. Still, though, we couldn't help but grin at O'Brien's obvious delight to be performing in front of an audience a couple times larger than his usual late-night crowd.

The highlights of Conan's monologue, below:

Mad Men's title doesn't refer to star Christina Hendricks's effect on men, but apparently that's not much of a stretch.

While visiting Conan on Monday, Hendricks related a time that one gawker got a little carried away, and almost had to be, well, carried away.

One of the most buzzed-about scenes in The Wolf of Wall Street involves Leonardo DiCaprio's character losing control while on the sedative-hypnotic drug Quaaludes. The film's director, Martin Scorsese, reveals that, although his team had a "Quaaludes expert" on set to ensure realism, they also could've easily drawn from his own experience.
