Barack Obama made, arguably, the best decision of his presidency when he jacked a "Key & Peele" skit for his standout moment at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
If you missed it -- 'cause like most Americans, you don't watch CNN or C-Span on Saturday nights -- the prez brought out 'K&P' star Keegan-Michael Key to play his "anger translator" ... who says what POTUS is really thinking during speeches.
The bit always killed ... like it always does. Check out the pot shots at the media (including the W.H. Correspondents), Ted Cruz, and even Hillary Clinton.
Good move, B.O. ... leave the comedy to comedians.
Ralphie May thinks non-comedians like Ludacris should leave comedy to the professionals, because Ralphie's indignant at Luda's indignation over that Paul Walker joke during the Justin Bieber roast.
Our photog got Ralphie at LAX Friday and he made no bones about it. He thinks Luda's a "bad sport" for going ballistic when Jeff Ross cracked, "Move Bitch, get out of the way, is what Paul Walker should have told that tree."
You gotta hear Ralphie ... he does NOT mince words. He thinks Comedy Central kisses the asses of stars and that's why they cut the Walker joke from the roast.
The comedians at the Justin Bieber Roast crossed the line when they used the death of Paul Walkerto mock the roastee ... so says Comedy Central which is cutting the jokes from the show.
Jeff Rossmocked Bieber, comparing his driving skills to Paul Walker's and then referenced Ludacris' song, "Move Bitch," saying, "Move bitch, get out of the way, is what Paul Walker should've told that tree. Too soon? Too fast? Too furious?"
Apparently the joke royally pissed off Luda and Bieber didn't like it either.
Comedy Central said the joke crossed the line and it will be 86'd from the show.
Jon Stewart is leaving "The Daily Show" after nearly 20 years as a correspondent and anchor.
Comedy Central just announced Stewart would wrap up his duties on their hugely successful show later in 2015. There's been a lot of speculation about whether he would continue on the show when his contract ended this year.
Stewart talked about his decision in November on "The Howard Stern Show."
Stewart took over as host in 1999 ... and under his lead "The Daily Show" won the Emmy for Best Variety Series every year from 2002 to 2012. All told it's won 18 Emmys.
Comedy Central did not give a specific date for Stewart's last day on the air.
Justin BieberASKED to be skewered by Comedy Central because he wants to make a public declaration he's screwed up a lot in the past, but he's figured it out and has changed for the better.
TMZ first reported ... Justin himself asked to be roasted to celebrate his 21st birthday. We're told he views it as a form of therapy ... acknowledging hijinks from DUIs to pissing in kitchen buckets.
But here's the thing ... Justin definitely seems to have changed over the last 4 months. People around L.A. tell us he's polite again, respectful and extremely generous. He went to Mozza in L.A. Sunday night but the restaurant was full. Two guys saw him and gladly moved to the bar so he could have a table. We're told Justin walked up to thank them and then bought their dinner.
And Justin was in line at a restaurant a few days back and randomly bought a meal for some people behind him.
People who have regular contact with Bieber tell us they've seen a radical change. As one put it, "The person I knew is back."
As for why the roast will be therapy ... we're told Justin thinks the evening will end the chapter of his life where he messed up. He'll take his lumps, and then move on as a real adult.
John Pinette -- best known for his role as the fat guy who got mugged in the "Seinfeld" finale -- has checked himself into rehab after becoming addicted to prescription medication ... TMZ has learned.
A rep for the venue in Canada where John was set to perform in next month says Pinette had to postpone the gig because he was checking into a rehab facility for his addiction.
The rep says John -- who also had his own Comedy Central special in 2011 -- underwent surgery earlier this year and got hooked to the prescription medication he was taking.
John has since tweeted to his fans about the situation -- saying, "Thanks to everyone for your concern and well wishes.. Want to apologize for having missed shows last weekend, but I hope you understand!"
In case you're not a "Seinfeld" fan (WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?!?) ... Here's his famous scene from the super disappointing finale.
At least the reunion on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" kinda-sorta-not-really made up for it.
We should have known by Lindsay Lohan's SNL performance that she has no sense of humor ... but this really takes the cake -- celebrity roastmaster Jeff Ross says Lindsay REFUSES to participate in this year's Comedy Central Roast.
It would've been a great idea to let comics poke fun at her fresh out of rehab ... because if there's anything we can learn from Alec Baldwin, it's that comedy can defuse almost any kind of negative publicity.
Alas, Jeff Ross says Lindsay turned down his offer ... but there are plenty of other people to choose from. Watch the clip.
