Saw Conan O'Brien tonight...

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Ray Holt, Apr 22, 2006.

  1. Conan came to my college tonight (University at Buffalo). You know I've never really watched his show much at all, but I was offered a ticket for free. I'm glad I went, he was very funny.

    It's also kind of amusing that he came as part of the "Distinguished Speaker Series", he constantly made fun of that fact, like when he was jumping around on stage.

    But he's really a smart guy, and of course very funny. During one of the student's questions Tom Cruise came up, how he's been in the news a lot lately, and they asked what kind of questions Conan would have for him if he could meet him. He said "I wouldn't have questions, I would sedate him, then restrain him. No more questions for Cruise at this point."

    He suggested we invite Cruise next year as part of the distinguished speaker series, then all at once charge him with foam mallets. :D :D :D "He'd be back to a normal action star the next day"

    Conan is one of the funniest people around. Even if you don't think he is funny, his writing resume alone should impress you.
