i don’t really know how to explain my love for Conan O’brien. so in a nutshell, here goes: i first heard about Conan while I was in fifth or sixth grade, watching the Rosie O’donnell Show at an old friend’s house. Conan was a guest on that day, & all I can really remember is that he talked a lot about how pale he was & made me laugh. So after that, i was hooked.
i began watching Conan’s show, The Late Night Show with Conan O’Brien, every night. i guess i would’ve been about 11 or 12 then, so i think it’s safe to say i’ve been watching Conan for almost 14 years.
& of course, this passed January, the evil & equally un-funny Jay Leno helped take away Conan’s Tonight Show on NBC.
& so my dream finally came true today, when I got to see Conan Live, on his “Legally Prohibited from being Funny on Television tour” at the Midland Theatre, here in Kansas City.
in short: it was GREAT. he even came off stage midway through the show and reappeared on the upper level, literally 10 feet from where we were sitting!! can’t wait for him to return to TV in November. counting the days, yep.
& here’s a long video of random awesome conan clips… also found on YouTube. credits to respective video owners. (ignore the country music…)
