Nick Offerman hosted the Radio and Television Correspondents' Association Dinner on Friday night, and concluded with a very funny roast that railed on Time Warner Cable, Eric Cantor, and political incompetence in general.
It isn't quite up to the Colbert standard—some of the jokes are a bit too on the nose, while others just don't land—but Offerman's wry deadpan elevates most of the material. And if you're wondering where that famous mustache is, he kindly explains: "I'm with UTA and my mustache is with CAA, and it's currently engaged with a Jarritos soda campaign down at the World Cup."
