Longtime 'Jeopardy' host Alex Trebek has a way with words ... or, at least, as Conan O'Brien imagines it, he has a way with saying his words. Trebek's consistent cadence makes it incredibly easy for Conan to splice together the game-show host's clues into a parody video of absolute gibberish, accompanied by a pack of slack-jawed contestants. Funny, right?
If Conan O'Brien's dedication to even just announcing that he will be hosting the 2014 MTV Movie Awards (a "lifelong dream," he screams) on last night's 'Conan' is any indication to what kind of pep he'll bring to the final show, well, audience members might want to clear the front row at the upcoming ceremony.
John Travolta's (Jorm Tracoola's?) Oscar night butchering of Idina Menzel's name into "Adele Dazeem" as he introduced the singer's performance of Best Song winner "Let It Go" has already become its own Internet meme and a cherished memory of everyone who loves to laugh at award shows. That's why it's such good news that Conan O'Brien managed to find the real Adele Dazeem so that she could get the recognition she deserves on 'Conan' Monday night.
"I know, why can't we get a distortion pedal with a true bypass?"
All Conan O'Brien wanted to do last night on 'Conan' was chat about the end of the Sochi Olympics and its final medal count, but that relatively simple plan was derailed by some inept sound guys who were too busy chatting over the show's live feed about, well, their ineptitude to let Conan and Andy Richter rehash the winter sports spectacular.
We've seen Conan O'Brien nail plenty of 'Conan' parodies with dead-on accuracy, but now he's just dead! To commemorate 'The Walking Dead''s season 4 return and the entire cast's presence on 'Conan,' watch the late night TBS host join the ranks of the living dead in a zombified cold open for last night's 'Conan'!
When he's not busy stealing every scene of NBC's 'Parks and Recreation,' Nick Offerman is busy appearing in all kinds of movies, from major blockbusters like '21 Jump Street' to small independent productions like 'Somebody Up There Likes Me.' His most recent production, a concert film of his comedy show 'American Ham,' played at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and Offerman went on 'Conan' to explain the secret to getting your movie accepted into the prestigious fest.
It'll be at least a month before Ron Burgundy graces our lives with the long-awaited sequel 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,' but 'Conan' watchers needn't wait so long. The mustachioed one himself took over the show Wednesday night to preview his new book, give thoughts on ugly babies and spearhead the reelection campaign for infamous Toronto mayor Rob Ford!
Though 'Star Wars: Episode 7' hasn't started casting yet, nor has Disney released much information about the upcoming sequel, that's not going to stop intrepid journalists from asking about it. Conan O'Brien interviewed Harrison Ford for his upcoming movie 'Paranoia,' and -- to get Ford to talk about it -- offered Ford a thousand dollars to tell him spoilers from 'Episode 7.'
A few weeks ago, 'Mad Men' series creator Matthew Weiner finally opened up about the AMC drama's purposefully-vague "next time" promos, which take the series' anti-spoiler policies to often absurd and nonsensical heights to tease the following week's storylines. Now, Conan O'Brien has decided to get in on the action with his own vague promos for 'Conan,' and the results are nothing less than spot-on.
