You've now entered the Cone-zone
I love Late Night with Conan O'Brien. What's so appealing about this Irish Redhead you ask? Maybe it's his hair, schoolboy charm, sweet suits or simply he's my name sake. I don't know, I don't have enough time to list them all. Unless, you are a troglodyte you know that all of the late night talk shows have had to rely on their improve skills. During the writers strike Conan's shows were witty, original and insightful and in this bloggers opinion some of his best shows in awhile. Conan had new segments with behind the scenes interviews with crew, introducing German disco to his audiences, spinning his wedding ring on his desk while trying to set a personal record, and zip-lining across the studio. He even grew a strike-beard in support of WGA. Things started really getting interesting when Conan and Stephan Colbert starting smack talking on each others show. Here is a recap with what went down and what it lead to.
Now that the writers strike is over I am excited to see some of Conan's infamous characters return, but we will never forget the unpredictable and unscripted nights in the Cone-Zone.
