Comedian-in-Chief comes out at Alfalfa Dinner

WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Obama poked fun at himself Saturday night while delivering a joke-filled monologue at the Alfalfa Club’s annual dinner in Washington. “It is great to be here tonight, because I have about 45 more minutes on the State of the Union that I’d like to deliver tonight,” Obama announced to the crowd of Washington insiders, politicians and business elite.

The exclusive black-tie dinner was closed to press coverage, but the White House released some excerpts of the President's remarks.
