Conan O'Brien Owns the 2006 Emmys
Here's an example, the intro furnished courtesy of YouTube.com.
CONAN HAS A LITTLE TROUBLE GETTING TO THE EMMYS - THE OPENING FILM
Conan's intro parodies a number of hit TV shoes including Lost, 24, South Park, the Office, House and others as only he can. His special style of humor really works here. If anyone else tried to pull this off in this style they would fail, but not Conan. Besides, he does his own stunt work. Who else would roll upside down into a carry-on luggage compartment?
CONAN MONALOGUES AND SINGS "TROUBLE AT NBC"
Then Conan finally get to the Emmy's and kills the audience with his best monologue in a long time. Triumph the insult dog is not missed.
Here are some excerpts of the show. Conan even shows off his singing skills which he deprecates without need, but that is part of the Conan charm. It does leave you with the desire to see O'Brien in a fuller version of The Music Man or a full parody of network hoo-ha.
"My second time hosting the Emmy's, and as you'll see, third time's the charm. Folks, let me speak from experience, just because something lasts for 14 seconds doesn't mean it isn't spectacular. Viewers say there's something about about watching Charlie Sheen raising an impressionable young kid that is somehow feels right. Mel Gibson has a new show on Al Jazerra TV."
All this and more comes before singing about how this year's Emmy TV host NBC, with all it's hit comedy's now off the air, relying on host Howie Mandell and Let's Make a Deal to bring them back to first place again, is in "Trouble with a capital T that ryhmes with G, as in Gee we're scre***, Yah we got trouble, right here at NBC, I know you don't care, but our network share is just one dude...". Hilarious. Just watch it.
HUGH LAURIE AND HELEN MIRREN: LAURIE DOES A VERY FUNNY BIT IN THE PRESENTATION FOR ACTORS IN A MINISERIES OR DRAMA
Nominee Andre Brauer, like Bob Newhart who appears in the telecast, see below, is also a graduate of St. Ignatius College Prep in Chicago. I have very distinct memories of Brauer running through the hallways of IGGY as a freshman, bookbag over his shoulder, racing from class to class. He was quite a bit younger then, but clearly very bright. Will have to check the old programs to see if we were in a play together or not. Am still very pleased at his success this is his second Emmy. Bob Newhart, also had an Emmy appearance. I am looking for the clip as I type. Bob provided a key incentive for winners to stay on schedule.
PERHAPS THE FUNNIEST PRESENTATION OF THE EVENING BY STEPHEN COLBERT AND JON STEWART
Hope you enjoyed these,
P.S. Let me know if you find a clip of Bob Newhart being locked into the timer box which will drown him if the emmy's run overtime!
