Conan Highlights

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

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gave a big speech at the UN today, and he was actually applauded. Yeah, of course he did start his speech by saying, “These replacement refs suck!”

It’s being reported that the NFL is close to reaching a deal with the refs. And the replacement refs say they’re very close to finding their ass with a map and a compass.

An airline in Asia announced its selling seats in what they call “the quiet zone” where babies are not allowed. The people most likely to purchase seats in the quiet zone are businessmen and parents of babies.

The comedy segment was Clueless Gamer. I usually enjoy this segment, but this one was only mediocre, so we’re going to skip it.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt was the first couch guest. He’s in the new film Looper. The interview was pretty good. Joseph was a dream guest in that he was honestly happy to be there, he was totally engaged in the conversation no matter the topic and he didn’t try and upstage the host. Here’s a clip:

Emily Deschanel was the second couch guest. She is on the show Bones. The interview was enjoyable because Emily wasn’t there to promote anything, so she and Conan just chatted about stuff. Emily shared some interesting stories. Here was my favorite one:

Jamie Lee was the stand-up guest. She had some winners and some losers. Overall, she was ok.

Fine show.  I give it:

– Woody
