In case you missed it: President Barack Obama pushed politics aside Saturday night in the name of some good, nonpartisan fun.

Democrats, Republicans – no one was safe from the jokes (or able to hold back the laughter) when the commander-in-chief took the lectern at the annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.

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.
