Tonight Show Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes and bits from last night’s Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien:

Osama Bin Laden, have you heard this, has released a new audio recording slamming the President, America, Israel and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Yeah, then at the end, when he’s really worked up, he yells, “And Beyonce has one of the best videos of all time!”

Got a lot of rude outbursts lately; over the weekend Kanye West slamming Taylor Swift at the VMS’s, Serena Williams screaming at the line judge happened over the weekend. They’ve gotten so much attention, Kanye and Serena will be joining Congressman Joe Wilson in a new show called America’s Got A-holes.

Those jokes were followed up with this:

This week three NFL players announced that after they die they’re going to donate their brains to a medical school that studies brain injuries. The medical school was thrilled, but admits the big prize is still Gary Busey.

Harrison Ford, who by the way is sixty-seven years old, announced he wants to make a fifth Indiana Jones movie. Apparently in the movie Indiana Jones is chased by a giant boulder, which will be played by his prostate.

And finally, this:

The desk segment was the Tonight Show Audiencey Awards. I didn’t think this was going to be funny, but it ended up giving me a few big chuckles:

Hollywood stuntman Steven Ho returned for a visit. When he comes on the show he teaches Conan how to perform a few stunts. This time they began with some fight choreography and ended with window-crashing baby-saving. The video is thirteen minutes long, but it is really really fun to watch:

Charlize Theron was the first couch guest. I’ve been a fan of Charlize ever since Something About Mary. I think she’s pretty cool and talented. She promoted her new movie The Burning Plain and talked about her OCD. The interview was short but enjoyable.

Davis Matthews Band was the musical guest. They’re still rocking after all these years.

Great show all around. I give it my highest rating:
