Many amazing things happened yesterday that I’d like to share with all of you. One of them being…I got to see my soon-to-be-husband in the flesh, only he doesn’t know he’s going to be my soon-to-be-husband, therefore shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….he’ll find out soon enough.
I FINALLY got to see a Conan show! And the better part for all of you who will someday soonish visit LA, it’s extremely easy to go see! It’s first come, first serve, so if you get there early enough after downloading a “reservation”, you get to go in. And it’s all for free!
We got to see parking spots for Two and a Half Men and 2 Broke Girls, but unfortunately there were no celebrities cruising around on golf carts.
Conan was nice enough to have his employees hand out popsicles in the waiting area on that grossly muggy day, and then gave out free candy as we took our seats. A comedian came on and taught us how to properly clap using both hands and scream like a maniac every time Conan says a joke, even if we don’t get it. The comedian also insulted a lot of people which is always big fun.
Andy Richter silently creeped onto the stage over to his podium and everyone screamed like a maniac, including myself and he was all, “Now now, I’m just Andy.”
Then Conan came on all tall, skinny, and handsome in a lavender suit swooshing that gorgeous red hair around. He cracked jokes about Hillary Clinton, female Viagra (yeah…okay), and Donald Trump running for President.
And then we got to see Boo!
Or shall I say Lea Delaria.
The seats were amazing and I was tucked in a corner next to the camera man. At the end, Conan came out into the audience and hugged a girl and I never wanted to switch lives with someone so badly until now. I probably wouldn’t have let go.
What I loved most about this show was how old school everything was. They had the “Applause” flashing signs as if we weren’t all acting like maniacs already, and it was interesting to see everything in between “commercials” with all of the cameras moving around and Conan chatting to Andy at his desk while sipping on what we think is coffee.
I already can’t wait to go back. And to have Conan O’Brien’s babies.
A shout out to Jamie at Fits of Wit, who I somehow made a black baby with…I’ve now generated a make believe baby with Conan.
A nice little pale Irish baby that may or may not be albino. Questionable.
