Life without Conan O’Brien‘s late night show has been much less humorous over the last few months. Hands down the funniest of the after-hours talk shows, Late Night with Conan O’Brien was the cause for repeatedly tired days at work, resulting from my dumbass staying up until 1:35am every night to watch Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, the Masturbating Bear, “TV Movie Casting,” and every other juvenile-yet-still-intelligent bit. Hell, I’d even sit through The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to be ready for Conan—-after an hour of Leno’s jokes that sound like they’re written by unimaginative kindergarteners, anything would be funny. Conan, fortunately, is hilarious even without Leno’s low set-up bar.
It should come as no surprise, then, that the June 1 premiere of The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien is already marked on my calendar. His guest will be Will Ferrell, musical performance by Pearl Jam. The curiousity factor is tall. Will his bizarre brand of humor and ability to turn dud-jokes into winners through his own mannerisms transition well into the new time slot? How about all of the kooky characters and sketches? I’m almost certain that it’ll be the same old C, but to help calm folks such as myself down, here’s a large, well-done feature on the show from The New York Times. [Link below the picture]
