Have you heard the news? Conan O'Brien is bringing his Late Night talk show to Toronto for a week in February.
I have nothing but positive feelings about Conan O'Brien. I knew him first as a writer and producer of some of the funniest Simpsons episodes ever. He wrote Homer Goes to College and Marge vs. the Monorail, two of my personal favourites. As a late night talk show host, he's certainly one of the best. My brother Steve and I made it a point to stay up and watch Conan during his first few seasons. This was a time when it was perfectly reasonable for me to go to bed at 1:30 in the morning. Conan O'Brien is directly responsible for a great deal of the laughter I have expunged thoughout the past decade.
Late Night will be taping at the Elgin Theatre. Maybe I should go. Geography is no longer an obstacle.
