Conan O’Brien Takes Aim at Old Bosses Behind Enemy Lines

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



For the first time since the dramatic end to his tenure as “Tonight Show” host, Conan O’Brien returned to Universal Studios on Saturday night.

O’Brien took his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television tour to the Gibson Amphitheatre, only hundreds of yards from where his doomed 11:30PM NBC show used to tape.

“This is my first time back at Universal Studios since I lost my job,” O’Brien told fans, eliciting boos toward his former employers. “Don’t boo too loudly. If you listen very carefully, you can hear bad ideas being greenlit.”

Jim Carrey, Jonah Hill and Jon Hamm were among the live show’s surprise guests, along with current NBC stars Jack MacBrayer (“30 Rock”) and Aziz Ansari (“Parks and Recreation”).

O’Brien will perform again at the Gibson Amphitheatre tonight. His new TBS talk show doesn’t yet have an announced location.

And for anyone curious to see what a Five For Fighting cover duet between O’Brien and Carrey looks like, there’s VIDEO BELOW:
