Conan Highlights

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

Last night was the premiere of TLC’s controversial new show “My Husband’s Not Gay.” Unfortunately, their entire target audience was watching the Golden Globes.

According to a new survey, the potential presidential candidate that most voters said they’d like to live next door to is Elizabeth Warren. Personally, I’d like to live next door to Mitt Romney, cause that would mean I have billions of dollars.

Tiffany Jewelers just released an ad that features a gay couple for the very first time. A spokesman for Tiffany’s said that everyone, whether they are gay or straight, should have the right to grossly overpay for jewelry.

The comedy segment bit was “BuzzFeed Is Running Out of Lists.” Ordinarily this bit is mediocre and not worth posting, but I thought this one was more entertaining:

Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein were the first couch guests. They star together on the television show Portlandia. The interview was fine. Fred and Carrie have terrific chemistry, but seemed uncomfortable on the guest couch. It’s like they have their own little humor club, and Conan and Andy invaded and ruined it. At the same time, Conan questions were lame and his delivery of them was flat. I know his job is to set up his guests so that they can tell stories, but man, he put very little energy into it. Maybe he felt the same thing I was seeing. Overall, I don’t think the interview had any clips that are worth watching, so we’re gonna skip it.

Blake Anderson was the second couch guest. He stars on the show Workaholics. The interview was ok. The problem for me was that I didn’t find Blake all that interesting. While I wanted to get to know Fred and Carrie more, but they were introverted and didn’t share much, Blake was more than happy to tell stories and be funny, but I didn’t care. It’s weird how that happens sometimes.

Wade Bowen was the musical guest. He gave a nice performance:

Decent show. I give it:
