Conan Goes Birdwatching in Central Park

This is an oldie but a goodie. I didn't know it was archived on Hulu, but Piffle posted it on his blog.

Hilarious!

The birding group were good sports. Did you notice after they called Conan a Red Headed Woodpecker, his group of goofs flashed up a Pileated Woodpecker?

Very funny indeed Rene. Conan is amazingly good at adlib isn't he? Some of the birder's reactions were funny as well, and when the two birding groups come together, great. Thanks for sharing.

That was great. It was one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time.

@driver - You're right! I was so busy laughing I didn't notice. I do now notice that they seem to have plucked the illustration from the NatGeo Birding Guide to North America. I hope the artist got paid!

@dawn - Thanks!

@BirdingGirl - Me too.

@Larry Jordan - I think that's when he's at his best. His ratings would improve if he dropped some of his slow-moving skits with crew and just went out on the street, like he did in Scandinavia.

@Ratty - You're welcome. It makes me laugh every time.
