Conan O’Brien gets beat up by a little boy!!!
May 17th, 2023 under Conan O'Brien. [ Comments: none ]

Conan O’Brien traveled the world with Conan Without Borders on TBS. But that series ended along with his hysterical late night talk show. However, he decided he still wants to travel, so he is going to do it with Max.

With his old show, he would go to places where people don’t normally vacation, like Cuba, Armenia, Greenland, and the North Korean border. So with Conan O’Brien Must Go, he is going to visit his “friends” from his podcast Conan Needs a Friend. He says, “My fans around the globe never asked me to visit them, so I did.”

The 4-episode event is currently in production, so we are not sure who he is going to and where they live. But let’s hope he doesn’t start a war.

Because even though he tells Nina Rosenstein, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, that he is a national treasure, for some reason, not everyone gets his sense of humor. And I can see Norwegians not laughing with the tall white, redhead.

Seriously, the world has been missing Conan’s take on the different cultures around the globe. So I can’t wait to watch his destination show that is destined to be educational in a way that isn’t meant to be educational.


The Forgetting Sarah Marshall dumping scene was based on a true Jason Segel story
February 21st, 2023 under Conan O'Brien, Jason Segel. [ Comments: none ]

Do you know that scene where Jason Segel is naked and gets dumped by his girlfriend in Forgetting Sarah Marshall? Well, that really happened to Jason Segel.

Segel sat down with Conan O’Brien for his podcast Conan Needs a Friend and told him the real story.

The Shrinking star was dating someone, and things were going really well. But she wound up going away for a while. So when she got back, she asked if she could stop by his place.

Well, Segel thought he was going to get laid, so he got naked and posed for her. When she walked in, she told him that they needed to talk. And we all know what that means.

So he sat there naked on his couch as she was dumping him. And he is thinking this would be a great story for a movie. And it is!

That was not the only thing he was thinking. He also thought he needed to put on some clothes. So he went into his bedroom and spent the next 25 minutes trying on different outfits before settling on a button-up blue shirt and khaki pants. Why? Because he was then able to tell her, “I am wearing your favorite outfit.”

As brilliant as that scene would’ve been, it was cut for time.

Now that you know Segel’s worst breakup story, what is yours?


Listen to Conan O’Brien call Bruce Springsteen and Tom Hanks class acts
November 10th, 2022 under Bruce Springsteen, Conan O'Brien, Howard Stern, Tom Hanks. [ Comments: none ]

Howard Stern has said that Conan O’Brien is his favorite guest. So when the late night host was the shock jock’s radio show, the latter asked who is his favorite guest.

O’Brien told him that it was Bruce Springsteen. That is because the singer came early, rehearsed, got to know the cameramen’s names, and stayed after the show was done to hang out.

He was not the only one who came to work, so did Tom Hanks. Conan said that when Hanks was a host on Saturday Night Live, the Oscar winner spent 24/7 at 30 Rock. He also had tons of great ideas and was there to play.

I love to hear that two of the most beloved celebrities are not just putting on act. They are WYSIWYG.


BTWF: Conan O’Brien on Saturday Night Live
March 25th, 2022 under Conan O'Brien, Saturday Night Live. [ Comments: none ]

Before Conan O’Brien had his own talk show, he got his start as a writer on Saturday Night Live who occasionally appeared on the Variety show. How awkward was the 27-year-old in that 1990 bit?

The reason why I know about that 31-year-old bit is that Conan explained how that led to him appearing during John Mulaney’s Five-Timer Club sketch a few weeks ago. To hear how it all came about, then click here!


Murderville kills it with the jokes on Netflix
February 3rd, 2022 under Conan O'Brien, Ken Jeong, Netflix, Sharon Stone, Will Arnett. [ Comments: none ]

Will Arnett teamed up with Netflix to give us Murderville, a murder mystery show that is half scripted and half improv. Will Arnett and a few other cast members are given a basic script, and the episode’s guest star is not given one. That guest has to pay attention because they have to solve the murder of the week.

Who are the victims? I mean guest cops, who work alongside Terry Seattle (Arnett)? They are Annie Murphy, Conan O’Brien, Ken Jeong, Kumail Nanjiani, Marshawn Lynch, Sharon Stone. Believe it or not, football star Lynch was the best one of them all, and they were all great as they put up with the comedic punches.

Each episode starts off with Chief Rhonda Jenkins-Seattle (Haneefah Wood) telling her soon-to-be ex-husband that he is getting a new partner. Then Seattle banters with them before they go to the morgue. When they get there, they are greeted by Medical Examiner Amber Kang (Lillian Bowen). She tells them how each victim was murdered and gives them some clues. Now, Seattle and his partner of the week are off to interview three different suspects. At the end of the interrogations, the guest star has to reveal who they think did and why? Once they make their reveal, the chief comes out and tells them if they are correct or if they are wrong.

Sounds easy, it isn’t. This is one of the few police procedurals where I didn’t get any of the killers correct. But then again, it could be because the biggest guest star was the cop and not the murderer. How evil is that?

Not as evil as Arnet is to all of them. He keeps them on their toes with his humor. All of the guest stars have to play off of him and not laugh. Jeong kept breaking while Stone was able to one-up his crazy antics. And there is Conan, who was taken down by a little girl. It was so awesome to watch.

Actually, all six episodes are fun to watch, and I hope that Netflix orders more because I need and want it. I need an episode with Will Forte!

Murderville is the type of show that you binge in one afternoon. However, you are going to watch it again to see if you can resolve all of the crimes now that you know who committed them and why.
