Conan O’Brien is ramping up the Team Coco activities in advance of the debut of his new TBS show. Yesterday there was some kind of 24-hour live feed into the writing staff’s office, a highlight of which was these bears doing aerobics (BEAROBICS!). As it turns out, people in bear suits can be funny even when they’re not masturbating or punching a woman.
In related Conan news, he’s released the guest list for his first week of shows:
• Monday, Nov. 8 – First Guest Poll winner, Seth Rogen and musical guest Jack White
• Tuesday, Nov. 9 – Tom Hanks, Jack McBrayer and musical guest Soundgarden
• Wednesday, Nov. 10 – Jon Hamm, Charlyne Yi and musical guest Fistful of Mercy
• Thursday, Nov. 11 – Michael Cera, Julie Bowen and comedian Jon Dore [via THR]
The First Guest Poll is obviously a joke, but still funny: alongside stars like Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and Jack Nicholson are choices like REO Speedwagon, the sultan of Brunei, Thomas Pynchon, and “The full cast of the 2004 live-action Fat Albert movie (not including Kenan Thompson).” Oh man, that last one gets my vote. Anything that doesn’t include Kenan Thompson always wins.
