Jerry Lewis, Finesse Mitchell, Gogol Bordello. Comedy bits included the Macy's Day-After Thanksgiving Parade, off-season uses for the Rockefeller Center skating rink, Joel shares his post-Thanksgiving tradition, NBC's made-for-TV movie about the CIA leak case, and the "fantastic" audience member who interrupts Conan.
Conan mentioned that the immensely popular "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" was held in New York yesterday, but what many people don't know is that there is a "Macy's Day-After Thanksgiving Parade" held on the day after Thanksgiving. He announces that it will be passing through the studio and a train of tables with picked cleanturkey carcasses moves through the studio.
One of the most popular tourtist attractions during the holiday season is the ice skating rink in Rockefeller Center, near the Late Night studio. Conan mentions that in the off-season, different events are held where the skating rink is located, including a demolition derby in June, a nudist colony in July, and the "Rock Center Cock Fights" in August.
Announcer, Joel Godard shares his seemingly innocent post-Thanksgiving Day tradition of touch football. It grows perverse when he places the football down his pants and asks his Asian male prostitutes to "touch it."
With the recent CIA leak scandal in the news, Conan mentioned that NBC is going to be filming a made-for-TV movie about the leak probe. He revealed who will be playing the parts of main characters in the trial such as John Murtha, Judith Miller, Ambassador Joseph Wilson, Tim Russert, Karl Rove and other players in the news.
While Conan is announcing the show's lineup for the following week, an "audience" member continually interrupts him, saying that guest is fantastic by adding "-tastic" to their name. When it comes to Conan saying about the monologue or the comedy bits, the member shuts up and reads, saying those parts of the show are "horrib-tastic."
