Last Wednesday, February 10, the Dutch press held their version of the US Correspondents’ Dinner at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam.

The Netherlands 1st Correspondents’ Dinner on NPO1 was the most watched program on Wednesday with 2.725 million viewers, according to foundation KijkOnderzoek’s daily viewing figures.

The idea is to copy the Correspondents’ Dinner and have the “President” of the Netherlands, Prime Minister Mark Rutte, make fun of himself, his fellow politicians and the press. So comparing to President Obama is OK!

In America the president speaks to the press in a humorous manner. In the Netherlands it was Prime Minister Mark Rutte joking about himself, politics and the media. Something he was quite nervous about beforehand.

The jokes have a political flavor, and are not always easy to grip if you don’t follow Dutch politics much. Rutte had a whole team of speechwriters and comedians that helped him write the speech.

According to newspaper AD, many people from the media and broadcasting and a number of celebrities attended the event. They paid large amounts for a ticket to watch the Prime Minister’s speech and have a sit down dinner.
