Monday night Conan O'Brien played with guns; Tuesday night Conan put on lipstick. Clearly the man is taking a sincere interest in Dallas. He's really doing some research. Last night he joked that during a visit to a strip club he met all of the Dallas Cowboys. I have quite a few friends who can vouch for the accuracy of that joke. Later in the episode he experienced first hand the pressure to be beautiful that Dallas women face.
In the funniest sketch so far this week, Conan visited the Mary Kay headquarters to primp for a position as a beauty consultant. He asks his pink Escalade-driving guide to rate his skin. On a scale of 1-10? She gives him a five. Ouch.
Conan's guest for the evening was Seth Rogen, fresh off filmingNeighbors
with Zac Efron. The topic of the film quickly led to a discussion of Efron's abs, which Rogen admits are impossibly sexy.
I've noted that more women ride mechanical bulls than men. With this anecdata in mind, it seemed even Andy was exploring his female wild side last night by riding his podium turned mechanical bull.
Another highlight of the night was Conan's Wikipedia song, which was exactly what you're thinking. Conan pulled facts about Dallas from the Internet and strummed a few chords on the guitar. The best part? The final lines about Houston.
Tonight at 10 p.m. CST, he's back with special guests Simon Helberg and the Eli Young Band.
