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.

Mindy Kaling hates birthday parties during work.
Or, at least, she thinks they could be more efficient.

From Grumpy Cat sleeping to Zac Efron stripping (or at least, getting stripped), here are the five moments that everyone will be talking about.

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.

Sure, he's irreplaceable. But someone will have to step into the 11:35 p.m. time slot on CBS when David Letterman retires next year after a record 33-year run in late night.

Get ready for some big laughs!
Conan O'Brien will host the 2014 MTV Movie Awards for the first time, he announced on his show, Conan, Tuesday night.
The funny man, 50, joins other comedians, including Rebel Wilson, Russell Brand and Jason Sudeikis, who have helmed the show in years past.
And though nominees won't be revealed until Thursday, the late night talk show host is sure to be in good company at the reliably amusing event, which drew A-listers Zac Efron, Kerry Washington and Brad Pitt (to name a few!) last year.

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.
