Conan’s Farewell Address

leave a comment »

This was interesting, particularly the last 30 seconds.  Conan is a guy who made his career through physical and self-deprecating comedy.  I had not noticed that he never relied on cynicism, perhaps the only cynicism in his comedy was a self-cynicism.  I am not sure why I had not noticed this before but rarely do you find comedy that is not in some way rooted in cynicism or sarcasm.
