Conan's In Chicago this week - 05.09 - 05.12

Funny shit.

He told the audience he was going to put on a classy show and that the masturbating bear was left in NY. Next shot is the bear parachuting out of a plane to get to the show.

Now, Mr. T is taking him on a tour of the city..

Yep. I'm watching a bit of it. Just checking to make sure Cheap Trick was on when I found out he's in Chicago.

George Wendt looks like a heart attack waiting to happen.


What are the odds they'll do something w/Playboy?

They've still got it, but I'm not sure anyone needed to hear "Surrender" ever again.

I know what you mean because I could think of many many songs I would have rather heard them do, but they're also going to be on Conan on June 29th to promote the new album.

They could do "Dream Police" in honor of the recent reissue.

I thought it was funny that when they went to commercial the first had Mr. T in it and the second had the Will and Grace guy.



re: Cheap Trick-at least they didn't do "The Flame".



I looked at the rest of the week and the guests aren't too thrilling. I'm sure there will be some more local pop-ups.

They should do more with the hottie that was supposedly in the worst seat in the house. A plant by chance? Hmmmm.

I loved Mr. T's car, and when he when down the slide and got his booty wet.

Yeah I'm not sure why there aren't more Chicago guests. When Conan was in Toronto all of the guests were Canadian. I know they have Wilco, Common and Obama but John Mayer and Dave Chapelle aren't from Chicago (or even the Chicagoland area).

John C. Reilly and Conan just did a duet of "The Night Chicago Died". Earlier Conan and Jeff Garlin visited their old apartment. Good stuff. The tenant had a Jagermeister machine. Never saw that before.


I haven't finished watching last night's tape yet.

This was easily my favorite of the three Chicago shows so far.

But: All the great bands that call Chicago home, and they book... John Mayer?

I could also do without the theaterful of drunken louts. "Dude, he just totally mentioned a street I've been on! Woooooo!!!!!!"

How are you guys around the country liking the week of shows?

I'm liking them, but I'm from Chicago. I get the feeling that a lot of it is way to local to be funny to those outside of Chicago. But maybe its me.

Dammit! I had it set to tape but hadn't turned off the machine. What did I miss in the first ten minutes tonight?



I would say the shows are definitely much better if you know Chicago which I do a fair amount. Others are probably scratching their heads quite a bit.

You missed the worst monologue in late night.

Did you catch the desk-driving bit? I usually tune out for that, but tonight there was a very good reason to catch it.

Shitty of Chicago.

While John Meyer isn't from Chicago...his and the 7's version of Sweet Home Chicago was damned good.

The desk part was just coming on and I started taping at that moment. Just got back into town so I haven't seen it yet.

I was catching up with my DVR'd eps of Conan this weekend and I have to say that the Chappelle interview was one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. So glad to see him back. Easily still one of the best living comedians.
