Watch Live: White House Correspondents’ Dinner – NBCNews.com

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner — affectionately known as “nerd prom” — is on, and journalists in attendance can look forward to a night of awards, eats and laughs.

The 101st dinner will be hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Cecily Strong, who will play a very different role than the character she plays on the comedy show, “Girl You Wished You Never Started a Conversation With at a Party.” She’ll be introduced by President Barack Obama, who has made some successful jokes of his own at the bash.

Besides levity and a break from covering all things political and presidential, the guests can expect a menu featuring smoked paprika rubbed filet, and seared Alaskan halibut, served with a 2013 Chardonnay and a 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon.
