Conan O’Brien Hosting White House Correspondents Dinner
Conan O’Brien is taking a night off from his late night talk show to host the annual White House Correspondents Dinner. It will be his second time hosting the dinner, which takes place in April. Everyone at the dinner must love late night talk show hosts because Jimmy Kimmel hosted the dinner last year.
Either way, the last time Conan hosted the dinner was 18 years ago in 1995, so you know he won’t be making any of the same jokes he did that year. One of the highlights that year was a joke about O.J. Simpsons’ murder trial. Hopefully Conan can hold the attention of everyone at the dinner this year because most critics, and fans for that matter, didn’t think he did too well back them. He also didn’t have hair that was being used as the logo for his show either in 1995.
I think he’ll do fine.
Conan O’Brien Google Glasses Spoof
If you haven’t been living under a rock, and even then you would still have heard, Google has made a commercial for their new Google Glasses technology that allows users to take pictures, take videos, get directions, pull up the internet and about anything else your smartphone can do just by using voice commands and a pair of glasses.
In an effort to not be outdone by Google Glasses, Conan came up with his own version of the technology called Google A–. Yes, this is the same person who is going to be hosting the White House Correspondents Dinner.
Conan O’Brien February 25 2013
Conan has a jam-packed show on February 25 2013. He is inviting Zooey Deschanel on the show to talk about her role in New Girl and how much it has helped her acting career. Have you ever seen the show? There is hardly anything cuter than Zooey Deschanel. She is also going to be talking about the new production company she started with her friend Sophia Rossi.
Ben McKenzie, star of the show Southland, where he plays a rookie cop on the mean streets of L.A., will also be stopping by. Although he may be best known for his role as Ryan Atwood on the television series The O.C., his role in Southland is going to make him a superstar in Hollywood.
For his musical guest on Monday February 25 2103, Conan is inviting the Canadian duo Japandroids to play a song off their 2012 album, Celebration Rock. He is also going to be talking with the band about being named the Best Band of 2012 by Spin magazine, and they are also going on what seems to be an unintentional summer tour of different music festivals.
