Conan Highlights

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

President Obama says his campaign for a second term is still about hope and change. The President’s exact words were, “I hope I won’t have to change my address.”

Jeopardy host Alex Trebek may be retiring soon. Yeah, people suspected Trebek had become too old for the job when he went around asking, “What is….my name?”

The Octomom just filmed her first porn movie. In fact, it had the only opening bigger than The Avengers.

The desk segments were discussion on the “Super Moon” and Fan Corrections. Both were awesome:

Metta World Peace, known previously as Ron Artest, was the first couch guest. He plays for the Los Angeles Lakers. The interview was ok. Metta may be a talented basketball player, but he honestly didn’t impress me as a person. The bar for proving your intelligence is set pretty low on late-night television, and Metta barely cleared it in my opinion. I’ve seen a few sports figures on late-night that have made a far bigger impression on me. Here’s a clip:

Matt Walsh was the second couch guest. He is on the television show Veep. The interview was fine, but not very interesting. Matt is a nice guy with decades of comedy experience, but the topics he and Conan chose to discuss just didn’t do anything for me. I mean, this guy is a founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade. That would have been fun to hear about, not his admiration for monkeys.

The Lumineers was the musical guest. They were great:

Good show, I give it:
