VIDEO: Christie jokes at Friars Club roast

EDISON - For the first time in weeks, Gov. Chris Christie appeared in public without having to field questions about the George Washington Bridge scandal.

The governor made an appearance yesterday at the annual Friars Club roast in New York City. The event honored former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason.

Gov. Christie used the light-hearted occasion to tell a few jokes. He had the crowd in suspense when he announced that in 2016 he'd "run for president - of the Super Bowl selection committee."

The governor also took a few jabs from stand-up comic Jeff Ross.

Check out the full video of last night's appearance below:
