I apologize: I’m sure many of you don’t particularly care that Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter are reuniting on “The Tonight Show” on June 1st. But for me, it’s kinda huge. I’ve been waiting YEARS for Conan to be on at a more reasonable hour, and if NBC was just gonna douche out and give Leno an earlier time slot, then this move should have happened back in 2006.
Anyway, in this week’s teaser video for the regime change (embedded player below), Andy dons a red wig and pretends to be Conan. It’s a funny reminder that Richter can be an excellent balance to Conan’s manic schtick. Hey, uh, if you guys are hiring… not that I’m saying I don’t want to be a blogger forever or anything… but, like, if you NEEDED another writer for the show, it looks awfully good on paper if you have a military veteran on staff. I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’, y’know? **makes fellatio motion**
