The 2013 White House Correspondents’ Dinner was held on Saturday night at the Washington Hilton.  On hand to mingle with the White House press corps and the President were the likes of Sofia Vergara, Claire Danes, Psy, Kerry Washington, Gerard Butler and Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus (who finally got in the same room with POTUS!).  Of course, Barack Obama’s speech before the assembled journalists, politicians and celebs was the centrepiece of the evening; and it was full of jokes on his alleged socialism, super PACs, and Jay-Z’s Cuban adventure. A tough act to follow, no doubt, but Conan O’Brien did his best, delivering a lengthy address that took aim at the major news networks, as well as the President’s relationship with Congress. And of course, like any proper office party, there were sketches.

In the evening’s intro, Kevin Spacey‘s ruthless House of Cards character Frank Underwood got to test his mettle against real-life politicians like Senator John McCain; then, later on, Steven Spielberg popped in to discuss his (fictional) Lincoln follow-up, Obama, and the only man he could possibly trust to bring the 44th President to life on-screen: Daniel Day-Lewis.  Hit the jump to take a gander at speeches and sketches alike.

Here are the skits:

And here are the Obama and O’Brien speeches:
