Conan’s First Tour Stop: Triumph, Self-Pleasuring Pandas, and Spoon

Conan O'Brien's "The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour" made its first stop last night, in Eugene, Oregon, and reviews (tweets so far, mostly) are in. Spoilers ahead. Highlights included an appearance by the Self-Pleasuring Panda (who, NBC's legal department should note, is definitely completely different from the Masturbating Bear); a walk-on by Jack McBrayer, who pulled the Chuck Norris Rural Policeman Handle (which, NBC's legal department should note, is definitely completely different from the Walker Texas Ranger Lever); a song from musical guest Spoon (who just happened to also be playing Eugene last night); Conan squeezing into the blue leather paisley suit Eddie Murphy wore in Raw (here's a photo!); and the stand-up comedy of Triumph the Insult Dog Comic ("Normally I only come to this town to buy meth-lab supplies"). Also, there were apparently lots of songs and video montages, one of which is already available on YouTube and features a sad, fat, bearded Conan preparing for his tour. Watch, after the jump!

Here's the show's video intro:
