LOS ANGELES — “Tonight Show” host Conan O’Brien tickled late night funny bones on Wednesday with a crisp opening monologue that included a salty snap at this weekend’s 13th annual Erotica LA Expo, taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The red-headed comedian claimed unsuccessfully to never have heard of Erotica LA and scored one of the evening’s biggest laughs by ribbing the expected 40,000 attendees. To see the bit, please click here.
O’Brien succeeded Jay Leno as host of "The Tonight Show" on June 1st, averaging a 7.1 rating—the program’s highest Monday night rating in four years. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” placed a record-setting lead over CBS’s Late Show among adults 18-49 in its first week.
Those attending Erotica LA are asked to keep clear of any masturbating bears.
