    I've never seen anybody play ukulele like that. Amazing.

    conan said it perfectly....utterly amazing performance.
     
  4. Hmmm... Got it on the DVR, going to watch it when I get home now. Conan always seems to have pretty good bands on. At least ones that I like. That and I have been a big Conan fan for a long time.
     
  5. Not to mention that he is actually funny. His interviews are funny, and so is all of his improv.

    conan gets good musical guests, btu i think as far as comedy is concerned, CBS definitely has the late night upper hand right now. every conan episode is the same, whiel craig ferguson is hilarious(but dosnt get as good of guests), and letterman is one of the funniest people on tv in my opinion.

    He got on the show?? that is awesome
     
  9. Every Conan episode is the same? You obviously didn't watch him during the strike, he was the only one worth laughing at. Some of the stuff he does is just brilliant, and they are HARDLY the same. If anything Letterman is the same from night to night, I mean how many times can you do a top ten list? I also don't find him funny. Conan can improv, I haven't seen any other late night guy improv like he can.

    Woooo, a dude from Hawaii! You guys should buy the album that song is on. I have it and pretty much all the songs on the album are of that caliber. JFYI, he's been around for a while and he mostly got famous in Hawaii for playing really fast and wild. This album was certainly a departure from that. His brother's not bad either.
