Watch: 2023 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner

Last night (29 April), US president Joe Biden, first lady Jill Biden, vice president Kamala Harris, and second gentleman Douglas Emhoff attended the 2023 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.

The annual black-tie dinner had previously been cancelled in 2020 and 2021 as the Covid-19 pandemic forced large gatherings to be put on hold.

The president of the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA), Tamara Keith of NPR, told The Hill that demand to attend this year’s event was “painfully high”.

“I’m told that it is a good problem to have, but it still feels like a problem because we’ve had to turn so many people away,” she said.

She added that the dinner is “completely sold out”.

Comedian Roy Wood Jr. was this year's featured entertainer.
