O’Brien Joined by Famous Pals at Return to Former Home

Conan O’Brien returned to Universal City last night, the latest stop on his 32-city comedy tour, where he was greeted by some famous friends. Jim Carrey joined O’Brien onstage dressed as Superman for a duet of “It’s Not Easy to Be Me” (a parody of that Five for Fighting song you love so much). And Jonah Hill, Jon Hamm, and Aziz Ansari showed up for a famous O’Brien bit involving clips from Walker, Texas Ranger (the sketch has been rebranded "Chuck Norris Rural Policeman Handle"). O’Brien acknowledged the proximity to his former home throughout the show. “This is my first time back to Universal Studios since I lost my job," he began, "Sit back and enjoy an incredibly awkward show." And later, more amusingly: “Listen very carefully,” he told the audience, pointing in the direction of the NBC-Universal lot, “Bad ideas are being greenlit.” [Hollywood Insider/EW]
