awesome. notorious g.o.p. and the steele riff was probably my favorite. and the first bidden joke. great delivery on all. put leno to shame. when the president of the united states has better comedy chops than you – time to hang it up.
This is a very valuable video. Do note that this is a straight video feed, so we can’t see the visual and video gags Leno has to depend on for a laugh (much of which here WERE recycled gags from “The Jay Leno Show”/“The Tonight Show”, anyway).
Seeing it in this context, Leno’s delivery isn’t that funny at all. Perhaps that’s how it should be.
President Obama is my president . . . thank God.
Obama is a scumbag, just like most of Hollywood.
Obama is not only a great president, he is really funny and has a pro delivery too. I agree, thank God Obama is Pres.
Thanks for posting this. I hadn’t seen the President’s speech, he’s funnier then Jay Leno by far. I wish they would have gotten Craig Ferguson, he’s funnier and has a clue.
