Conan Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Conan.

Mitt Romney has already begun the process of choosing a running mate. Yeah, Romney wants someone with a different ethnicity who appeals to women, so his first choice is President Obama.

Today in my hometown of Boston the 116th Boston Marathon was won by a woman from Kenya and a man from Kenya. It was a very exciting race, both winners narrowly edged out someone from Kenya.

People are criticizing Mel Gibson because Mel Gibson is trying to make a movie about the Jewish hero of Hanukkah. Apparently people really have a problem with Gibson’s title for the film: The Jew Who Stole Christmas.

Speaking of weed, and I don’t get to say that often on this show, you know what the hottest new trend in California is right now? Red wine laced with marijuana. Yeah, I don’t have a joke for this, I was just asked to announce this by the California Board of Tourism.

The desk segment was Fan Corrections. It was enjoyable as always:

Kevin Hart was the first couch guest. He is a comedian who is in the upcoming films Think Like a Man and The Five Year Engagement. The interview was very entertaining. Kevin was hilarious, charismatic and a lot of fun to watch. I also liked that he enjoyed laughing as much as he did making people laugh. Here’s the majority of the interview:

Brittany Snow was the second couch guest. She’s in the new film 96 Minutes. The interview was fine. Brittany was nice and told some decent stories. She and Conan worked well together. Yet, is the interview worth spending your time to watch? No, not really.

First Aid Kit was the musical guest. They gave a very nice performance:

Very good show, I give it:
