Letterman on Kimmel talking about Conan on Colbert
October 18th, 2017 under Conan O'Brien, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert. [ Comments: none ]



Last Friday, Conan O’Brien was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and he told a story about how David Letterman got him a horse, yes a real horse, as a thank you gift for writing a nice letter to the semi-retired talk show host about all he did for late night television.

The story goes, when the TBS late night host heard that Letterman sent him a gift, he got overly excited. He got even more excited when he heard that the truck the present was in was too big to fit through the gates of the Warner Bros lot in Burbank. Therefore, he skipped, I am assuming, to get his gift that also skips. That is because it was a horse. What does a Harvard Man from Boston in LA via NYC know about horses? Nothing that is what.

Therefore, he found a place to take care of the unridable horse, and it was not cheap. On topic but off track, there are several equestrian centers in Burbank that are within a mile of where Conan tapes his nightly show. He could literally walk there, that is how close they are close to him. Anyways, after two years, he found a new home for Dave, so they donated Dave the Horse that was given to him by Dave the Letterman. A place so nice that is why we say that hoses go to greener pastures.

You would think that is where the story ends. It does not. David Letterman was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday, since the ABC host is taping the show in Brooklyn this week, and Dave told his side of the story. Letterman likes to give gag gifts and thought he would send Conan the horse with two cowboys while O’Brien’s show was taping and the stallion would take a big dump on the stage like when Ben Stiller brought a camel onto JKL many years ago. Then after the horse took a big sh!t on Conan’s stage, the giftee would sent the gift back to the gifter. That did not happen and Letterman had to pay for the thoroughbred that was returned to sender.

What did we get out of it? Two late night talk shows telling their stories on two other late night shows that are not their own. I cannot wait for Letterman to be Conan or Conan to be on Letterman’s Netflix show, so we can get the next chapter on their story.

And how did you like that in both cases the guests, who are also late night show hosts, totally dominated their interview segments on the other person’s late night show. The men behind their desks knew that they had met people who are better at their jobs than they are.

On that note, I think that Conan should spend a block of his show telling an unscripted tale because he is a great storyteller. I could watch him talk for 4 hours every week just talking about whatever. Don’t you just love the way he tells stories?

BTWF plays: Jane Lynch and Andy Richter in The Real Live Brady Bunch
October 2nd, 2017 under Before They Were Famous, Conan O'Brien, Glee. [ Comments: none ]


Before Jane Lynch and Andy Richter shared Conan O’Brien’s couch as guest and sidekick, they shared one as Carol and Mike Brady in The Real Live Brady Bunch. How groovy are the 31-year-old actress and the 25-year-old actor in that 1991 production that was the brain child of Jill Soloway. You know, the woman behind Transparent!

Conan O’Brien goes just driving with Tom Cruise
September 26th, 2017 under Conan O'Brien, Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes/Suri. [ Comments: none ]


Conan O’Brien traveled all the way to London to help Tom Cruise promote his movie American Made, and the TBS host wanted to do something different with the actor. Thus he called Jack Reacher and asked him to do a mission impossible. Translation, Conan asked Cruise to cruise with him. As in, he got Ethan Hunt to ride shotgun with him.

Would there be singing? Nope, that is James Corden’s thing. Would there be coffee? Nope, that is Jerry Seinfeld’s thing. What would they do then? Drive. That’s it, just drive. No questions because Conan needs to concentrate on his driving, so there was silence. Which really sucks because I wanted to hear the story Cruise was told by his A Few Good Men co-star Jack Nicholson. Anyways, after 3 and a half hours of touring London, there as only one thing for the Top Gun to do. I won’t tell you, you will just have to watch the hysterical video all the way through to find out. It’s the funniest thing that Cruise has done since Eyes Wide Shut. That was such a great comedic movie.

Now we finally know why Cruise hit the wall, he was trying to get away from Conan O’Brien. Can you blame him?

Bill Skarsgård’s smile is creepier without the It makeup
September 12th, 2017 under Conan O'Brien, Stephen King. [ Comments: none ]


Bill Skarsgård is playing Pennywise in the It remake, and there is only so much scary the makeup department could make him. Some of it he needed to do himself and the most important thing was that creepy smile which is finishing touch for the frightening clown. A smile, he told Conan O’Brien, he learned from his older brother when he was just 10 years old and he would use it torture his younger brother. Seventeen years later that trick helped to land him a role that will haunt our nightmares as much as it did his little bro.

Talking about family, Bill Skarsgård looks more like Tim Curry’s (the actor who played him in the original movie) son than his own dad Stellan Skarsgård. What do you think?

Heather Graham gets dirty on Conan!
September 11th, 2017 under Conan O'Brien, Heather Graham. [ Comments: none ]


When you look at Heather Graham, she appears to be so angelic. Turns out she has a naughty side to her and she likes to tell dirty jokes. Tonight on Conan, she told a joke about sperm that the TBS late night host did not get. Did you get it or is your mind as clean as she looks? Also do you find her humor funny or do you think it blows?
