TBS' lanky goofball recently introduced a miniature version of his late-night set as part of the wildly popular "Puppy Conan" segment. He vowed to host an entire hour from the mini-desk and couch, and last night he delivered on his promise with the deliriously surreal episode "Honey, I Shrunk the Set."
For maximum comedy, the guests were big and tall: Community's 6'4" Joel McHale, who brought along a "muscle massager" (don't ask); 7'1" ex-NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal; and The Sopranos' beefy Steve Schirripa. But the night's largest laugh may have come from O'Brien's description of sidekick Andy Richter's minuscule podium: "It looks like the Amish R2D2." No question about it: The comedic force is with Conan.
What do you think of last night's Conan?
