Conan O'Brien

Last weekend Conan O'Brien was in Edmonton playing the River Cree Casino -the same place where I play hockey.

The show was good not great.  It was pretty cool to see him and Andy and some of their familiar bits.  However, there were too many sight gags that went on forever and way too many musical numbers. Apparently Conan really wanted to be a musician growing up.

The tailored jokes about Edmonton were by far the funniest parts.  Of course, the big mall and the oilsands are pretty easy targets.

The show gets a solid 6.5 out of ten in part due to a great opener named Reggie Watts.

If you want a cheap pop in Edmonton - show up in an Oilers jersey.

Due to legal reasons the Masturbating Bear has been renamed the Self Pleasuring Panda.

Musical number and one of their sight gags. The background inflatable is supposed to be from Meatloafs Bat Out Of Hell tour.

Bonus: I went for some appetizers at the casino bar afterwards and saw the ugliest jersey ever: the Glenn Anderson HOF commemorative jersey.
