By now, POTUS has enough roasts under his belt to deliver a smooth comedy routine most every time. So, we all knew he would nail it. The real pressure was on the outsider, Jimmy Kimmel. You never know what you’re going to get. There was the uncomfortable, biting commentary of Stephen Colbert and then the blandness and desperation of Rich Little. Last year’s performer, Seth Myers, scored high marks, so the bar was set high for Kimmel. Though the reaction ranges from great to lukewarm to awful, he could have chopped a few minutes off his set. Kimmel devoted a section to Keith Olbermann and his unfriendly departure from Current TV. Naturally, the ultra-sensitive Olbermann took to Twitter to weigh in. We turned to Twitter to storify Kimmel’s performance.
