Conan O’Brien has boldly been taking his TBS talk show to places where no other talk show has gone. In the last year, he has been to Cuba, San Diego Comic-Con, Taco Bell headquarters and tonight at 11p he is traveling to Armenia with his assistant Sona, whose family comes from there. Even though she is Armenian, she has never been. O’Brien offered to take the journey with her and the nation will never be the same.
While the two of them are in Armenia, he will attempt to speak the language as he shops at one of their markets. When he is shopping, he gets to try their Viagra and Sona better run. She doesn’t, and together they find themselves among some sheep herders. He is unimpressed by the way they dress, but he does like how he is dressed for his Armenian soap opera debut.
It wasn’t all about laughs, the two of them also went to Genocide Memorial. Sona lost family members during the Genocide and she was able to find the marker for the town where they came from. It was emotional moment for the two and it will be one for us too.
Conan is a master when it comes to remotes and his show. He knows how to bring the humor, but also to show us a place we’ve never seen before through his eyes. We learn more about it through him then we could on our own.
When it comes to Armenia, we’ve seen it before, but through The Kardashians’ eyes. Does that mean that after tonight he will be known as Konan? Sorry, I couldn’t go without making a joke about that.
In all seriousness, tonight’s Conan is one not to miss, so don’t miss it.
Lou Diamond Phillips was on Conan O’Brien’s show yesterday and he talked about filming The 33 in a confined space with Antonio Banderas. The actors got to know each other so well, that the La Bamba star understands why women are infatuated with his sexy co-star. LDP did a spot impression of him. Then as he was finishing up, he basically admitted that Antonio is so sexy that your panties just fall off. Leading to him declare that Antonio Banderas is the “Pied Piper of Panties.” That he is! That he is!
If you are like me, then you dream of dressing your pet up for Halloween. Only thing, is you don’t what costume to get them. Well, yesterday on Conan O’Brien’s show, they came up with some great and fun disguises you can put on your loyal companion. Who doesn’t want to dress their pup up as Bernie Sanders or their turtle as the Staples’ Easy Button or an owl as a Minion? These are just a few of the costume ideas the TBS show came up with and you can see the rest when you hit play.
I just wish he had an idea for a cat. I would’ve let him use my kitty as a model. Although she doesn’t do well with being dressed up or cameras or an audience. She would’ve been purrfect.
What are dressing your best friend up as for Halloween? My BFF is going as a cat because that is all she will allow me to dress her up as. She wins!
Conan O’Brien had the hosts of Inside the NBA on his show yesterday and the TBS late night host wanted to know what bugs Charles Barkley the most. They revealed that he hates when they do a drum beat because he has no rhythm. Barkley admitted he doesn’t have rhythm and said that neither does Conan. O’Brien didn’t agree, so he stood up and danced for him like he was Magic Mike. Then the two men shared a magic moment that made me put all my dollars away.
I wish I could say that Conan was the stripper I’ve ever seen, but there was time in Atlanta I went to strip club that had a dancer that was worse than him. Oh and the club was full frontal and my pinky got jealous because they were the same size. And I am not referring that stripper’s finger.
Anyways, when it comes to Conan, at least he tried. Because of that I would say that he has rhythm. But he doesn’t.
For some reason Disney decided to debut the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens during Monday Night Football. Meaning a lot of people watched men throw the pig skin for the first time in their lives. Well, I guess they liked what they saw because Conan revealed video of them playing the game.
I bet you more fans of Star Wars took up Football than Football fans bought Star Wars tickets yesterday.
Before Elijah Wood lent his voice to videogames, he was playing videogames in Back to the Future 2. How awwwwdorable was the 8 year old in that 1989 movie?
BTW here he is talking about his first acting role on Conan yesterday.
Conan O’Brien and his assistant Sona are in Armenia filming a special episode for his TBS talk show, and he was caught smoking something. By the looks of it, you would think it is something illegal. So is it? Nope, it’s just a hookah. But he looks like he was busted with his mouth on hooker. What’s up with that? We will find out on November 10th.
In the meantime, we will all need to say a little prayer that Sona survives her work trip with her boss. She looks like she needs it.
In case you didn’t see The Interview, one of the most memorable scenes from it is when James Franco and Randall Park lock lips. Well, for some reason, they didn’t do press for that movie when it came out; so Park was able to finally talk about it now on Conan. Anything we hear about the controversial film now is like it is fresh off the boat, even though it is 9 months after the flick’s release.
Park told the TBS Late night host that as an actor, he didn’t think of the kiss as a big deal. That was until they filmed the scene. Then he said, “When we shot the scene and our lips met, something about that guy is magical.” Then he explained, “I mean, his lips are like really soft and it just stayed with me.” It really stayed with him, so much so he couldn’t stop thinking about it for days. Then as most people, who have that special feeling after a kiss, because we all do, he wondered if Franco felt the same way.
A week went by and Park heard that his co-star painted a painting of him as the North Korean leader. It was then that he got his confirmation that their moment stayed with his kissing partner because look at those lips he painted. I have to say I agree with Park because they really do stand out. Well that, and it looks like nothing like him.
Did you know that there is a huge debate on the website CelebHeights.com on how tall is Jake Gyllenhaal. Starlee King, host of the Mystery Show Podcast, wanted to solve the mystery, so she asked him. The actor told her he is 5’11.5″ and the posters still believe it even though it came from him.
Tonight at 11p on TBS, when Kine was on Conan, O’Brien brought out Gyllenhaal to measure him so that they can end this debate once and for all. Off went the shows, up went the measuring tape and now we know his true height. I think?
I like a world where we debate the height of an actor. Can we be frivolous like this more often? We need to be!
Earlier today, it was revealed that The Pope met with the reprehensible Kim Davis when he was here in the United States. People are disgusted by this revelation, but she might not have been the most controversial person he met with last week. Conan O’Brien got his hands on some photos that prove The Pope met with much worse people, much much worse people. To see who else he broke sacramental bread with, press play.
Then when you are done, run to confession because you are going to feel so guilty for laughing the whole time.
