Funnyman Conan O'Brien had the audience in stitches with jokes like,  "I have a question, and I think some of you also have this question. It's been several months since you were reelected, sir, so I'm curious, why are you still sending everyone five emails a day asking for more money? You won! Do you have a gambling problem we don't know about?"

"Did you put it all on Gonzaga?"(A reference to the president's NCAA March Madness college basketball bracket) "You did, didn't you? He did!"

And President Obama wasn't a slouch in the jokes department either.  He entered the room to DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win."

He also told the audience, "I still make rookie mistakes...Like, I’m out in California, we’re at a fundraiser, we’re having a nice time and I happened to mention that Kamala Harris is the best looking attorney general in the country. As you might imagine, I got in trouble when I got back home. Who knew Eric Holder was so sensitive?"

And while joking that, "I'm not the strapping young Socialist that I used to be", he took a page from out of the FLOTUS playbook and added "bangs" for a fresher look. 

He also joked about the Carters' Cuban Crisis saying, "I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one."
