Man, these burglars were swinging low when they decided to break in and steal some stuff from Conan O'Brien's set.
Real life hasn’t been that much fun lately, right? With your job, Thanksgiving, and Tax Day (I mean, that thing's always around the corner), wouldn’t be nice to just get away for a while? Check out into a different reality.
Well, science is currently working on that, and our old friend Conan O’Brien got to try it out for himself. Over at the YouTube’s VR Lab in New York City, Conan took virtual reality for a test drive, performing his normal routine of yelling at employees, co-workers, robots, and gym coaches in the new digital world, on Conan last night.
This video should have you very excited for the future, where you can harass robots and eat corn on the cob sandwiches. Watch the video and you’ll get it.
Earlier today, Vanity Fair tweeted out a promotion for their big story on what's so good about current late night programming.
You may notice it's a real sausage fest in there.
To be fair, Vanity Fair did mention the lack of gender diversity in their story:
What's conspicuously missing from late-night, still, is women. How gobsmackingly insane is it that no TV network has had the common sense—and that's all we're talking about in 2015, not courage, bravery, or even decency—to hand over the reins of an existing late-night comedy program to a female person?
And they did mention comedienne Samantha Bee's upcoming TBS late night talk show. She, however, decided to respond directly to the tweet, imagining herself in the picture with the rest of her peers.
And then followed up with the kicker:
Really, a Samantha Bee centaur shooting lasers out of her eyes says it all.
Best late night interview ever?
Conan O’Brien stepped out of his studio on Tuesday after receiving a strange call from Sterling Archer who was supposed to be a guest on his show.
But as soon as he walked through the door, he suddenly found himself cartoonified and in the middle of a high speed chase.
“I don’t shoot people. That’s not what I do,” says Conan in the clip. “I’m sarcastic. I have a dry wit. That’s my thing.”
Watch them kill a bunch of Russian mobsters as they randomly discuss mobile apps like Tinder and Uber.
Greg Keating does appear to be the spitting image of Conan O'brien. After a tongue-in-cheek explanation of how this guy came to the conclusion that Conan is his father, whether it's fake or not, it still begs the question: "Is Greg Keating Conan O'Brien's son?"
The King of Late Night is downsizing his show, but unlike a certain red-haired former host, it has nothing to do with ratings. Despite the prime time and late night turmoil NBC has experienced over the past few years, The Tonight Show is still the top-rated late night gabfest, yet NBC insiders tipped off Deadline Hollywood to massive cuts at the network's flagship program.
The downsizing includes dumping as many as 25 staffers and putting a sizable dent in host Jay Leno's $27 million to $30 million salary. Leno reportedly took a bigger cut than parent company Comcast initially requested, in order to retain some staff positions. Even Conan could muster up a golf clap for such a move. On second thought...nah.
University of California San Diego renamed itself "Conan O'Brien College" recently. To O'Brien's chagrin, however, the name change was only for 24 hours. Still, that didn't deter him from going to the campus and cracking wise (and perhaps heads, off-camera).
