Pee-wee Herman @ Radio City Music Hall
Pee Wee Herman

Man oh man! ANOTHER kickass show tonight!! How do we do it?! HOW. DO WE. DO. IT. I'll tell you how... By some more help from some great friends! Friends like PEE WEE HERMAN, JOHN KRASINSKI & ELI MANNING. Oh... And one other guest you might have heard of... A man by the name of...MAX WEINBERG!

It was really great seeing Max and catching up and everything. Max dropped by and was nice enough to sit in on our closing number, The Weight! Here's them going back out for the encore:

Annnnnnd.... That's all she wrote for the Legally Prohibited Tour in the Big Apple!! Thank you, New York. We had an absolutely fantastic time... And we hope that you had the same. Now, we load out, hit the showers, board the buses... And head on out to Boston! Oh, Boston. Board up the windows, lock down the kegs, and pray for daylight... BECAUSE HURRICANE COCO IS HEADED YOUR WAY! KAPOW! [Team Coco]

Conan O'Brien's second night (6/2) at Radio City featured different guests than the first. Those included Pee Wee Herman (who's coming to Broadway this fall), Eli Manning, John Krasinski and Max Weinberg, who joined the band & Conan for the closing cover of "The Weight." The tour continues on to Bonnaroo and ends June 14th in Atlanta. Videos from last night below...

Fun show. Wish I had been there the first night for Stewart/Colbert/Vampire, but this was fun too. A nice consistent 7 out of 10 over the course of two full hours. Good times.

Pee Wee is starting to look like Jane Wiedlin from the Go-Go's.

Reggie Watts at Radio City...is this an alternate universe?

conan is a rebel because he agreed to settle with nbc for $45 million, amirite?

Good show...the funniest thing was the Triumph the Insult Comic Dog bit. Pee Wee was alright. John Krasinski's guest appearance was pretty funny.

did pee wee jerk off on stage?

Only complaint about the Wed night show: could have used less songs. I thought that the bulk of the show was very entertaining, but the last half hour had me checking my watch.

random comments:

Andy Richter's presence really made the show, that guy rules.

The Triumph segment had me laughing the hardest.

Pee Wee Herman cameo was a nice touch. Eli Manning's didn't go over quite as well, and him getting pseudo-booooed by the crowd didn't exactly help his inherent awkwardness.

I apparently don't "get" Reggie Watts. Some of the audience was cheesing their balls off though, so I guess if you're into whatever it is he does up there then it met expectations.

@ 10:52 - It was very weird, as the last time I saw him was with about 50 people at Tearing the Veil of Maya. His stuff went over pretty well in the large room though.

Posted by Scott | June 3, 2010 11:23 AM

Huh? I thought the Eli Manning bit was good (liked the whole show) and he is VERY easy on the eyes. People nit pick the guy to death! It's weird.

Moral of the story...Conan is useless without his "friends"

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 11:38 AM

@1125 -
Eli has a bigger target on his back than just about anyone in the NFL, and he's already won a Super Bowl. He lost me with his draft day bullshit about refusing to play for the team that drafted him (San Diego) because they weren't particularly good at the time. Apparently the concept of joining a team to make it better was a concept that eluded him. Such a crybaby. I'll never get sick of his pouty expression after missed 3rd down conversions as long as I live...

Posted by Funderburgh | June 3, 2010 12:00 PM

Eli rules.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 12:16 PM

Funderburgh, the larger reason why he didn't want to go to San Diego was that he didn't think it was a big enough media market, and he wouldn't have as many commercial opportunities, which is why he wanted to go to NY. Which might actually make him an even bigger douche.

I don't see how that completely absurd Citizen watch ad (the one that refers to him as "unstoppable" - HA!) is doing anything for him other than line his pocket of course - I laugh every time it airs. If he's half as good as his brother that would be paying him a compliment (saying that as a Viking fan).

Posted by Funderburgh | June 3, 2010 1:57 PM

Okkkaaayyy...Funderburgh. Translation: Could care less. LOL. Anyway, Eli is a bit of a hottie, isn't he. It's cool he was there last night!

Posted by erica in LA | June 3, 2010 2:04 PM

I was fine with the cameo last night! All in all a fun show, glad I went. This conversation though has made me do some intense thinking about why I was way more excited to see Pee-Wee Herman there than a NFL QB. I've come up with nothing that I'm comfortable sharing...even with strangers.

Posted by Funderburgh | June 3, 2010 2:49 PM

it was pretty funny to see Andy Richter standing next to the giants Coco and Eli.

Pee Wee is rumoured to be the new front man for dirty projectors.

Eli will always be awesome because he beat the greatest team of all time in the super bowl. How many here have beaten the greatest team of all time?
