“Community” star and comedian Joel McHale served as the night's headliner. The night was filled with gentle roasting and lots of humor directed at the news media and Washington DC’s political elite. President Obama was a hit with his jokes. Here's a sampling of some of them as he poked good-natured fun at Republicans, the media and potential 2016 candidates.

The president said Republicans have given Speaker John Boehner as hard a time as they’ve given him. “That means orange really is the new black,” he joked.

“MSNBC is here, they’re a little overwhelmed. They’ve never seen an audience this big before,” the president said.

“Let’s face it Fox, you’ll miss me when I’m gone. It’ll be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya,” President Obama said.
