Conan Did a Great Imitation of Cam Newton’s Press Conference (Video)
Conan O’Brien isn’t known for being a real sports-minded talk show host. More often, the comedy he derives from sports is from acting like a clueless outsider. But he stepped up his game last night, tossing on a hoodie and doing his best imitation of Cam Newton at the now infamous post-Super Bowl press conference.
Here’s the clip:
As you can see, the whole thing is pretty meta, with Conan attending the press conference after a Cam Newton joke flops, and he has to discuss his failure.
Sports may not be his forte, but I’d like to see Conan do more of these. Maybe a throwback to Allen Iverson’s “practice?” presser should be next.
I wonder if people will chide Conan for being immature and unprofessional after this skit. History says they might.
