John Hodgman at Radio & TV Correspondents’ Dinner

In 2009, at the Radio and TV Correspondents’ Dinner, writer and comedian John Hodgman delivered the evening’s entertainment, playfully ribbing the president by labeling him as a “nerd.” Hodgman wove a narrative that touched upon the president’s alleged affinity for comic books and sci-fi, framing it through the lens of light-hearted banter and cultural references. A man stands at a podium with a microphone, clad in a suit and tie, glasses framing his face. Behind him, the setting is dark, and the seriousness of the occasion is juxtaposed with his slightly amused expression and the hint of a smile. On the screen overlay, his name and credentials as a writer and actor are displayed, confirming his role as a speaker at the event, broadcast on television, as indicated by the “LIVE” notation and timestamp in the corner.
