This Saturday night, April 25, Saturday Night Live’s Cecily Strong will serve as host for the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner (or “Nerd Prom”), a tradition that dates all the way back to 1944. The lineup of comedians who have performed over the last several years reads like a who’s who of late night, with the only major name missing being The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon.
Mediaite will be covering the event live, but before then, here’s a look back at the last nine comedians who bravely took the stage next to the president and delivered their best political material to the Washington media and the world.
