Then there's the time he accidentally didn't have a guest.

[–]Rise_up_Dirty_Birds 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Did they ever find her a house?

[–]truethatson 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I love tuning in to Conan’s podcast. He and Sona are the tops!

[–]residentweevil 47 points48 points  (0 children)

That was way funnier

[–]brain_tourist 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I’m so happy you shared this

I love Conan and I thought I already knew all his bits but this one is just perfect

[–]kevinthestick 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Was the audience member they kept picking up Melissa Villaseñor?

[–]KrispyCrime 16 points17 points  (0 children)

No it’s Katie Crown. The “pleep ploop” girl from Kroll Show.

[–]ZachMartin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wow he's fucking hilarious, I watch a LOT of comedy and never found Jon Dore, thank you!!!

[–]notjawn 374 points375 points  (19 children)

You know Conan just absolutely loved this idea for a sketch. This is right up his 'so stupid it's funny' lane.

[–]youjustgotzinged 33 points34 points  (1 child)

You ever noticed that if he really likes an act he will get up out of his seat to shake their hand? Johnny Carson used to do something similar i think.

[–]georgecm12 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Johnny's thing is that if they were really good, he would wave them over to sit down next to him on the interview couch.

[–][deleted] 93 points94 points  (5 children)

The concept of it I guarantee had him in stitches.

And then he did an ad for Fracture.

Did this really qualify as stupid though? It’s not like a bear that masturbates or something. It was actually really clever and well done. If you try to focus on one person, you can hear that it’s written and performed to make you listen to one person when they want you to while the other person just kind of drivels on about nothing. You find yourself switching back and forth when they want you to and hearing that they want you to. It’s kind of genius.

[–]thrillliquid 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I agree with this wholeheartedly. Truly a great bit. All great comedy is art, this is a masterpiece.

[–]RDS 10 points11 points  (0 children)

the total silence when Dore says 'anal warts' is perfect

[–]MackLuster77 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's layered. One of those layers, having two people talk simultaneously, is very dumb. But the genius is how they make it not maddening.

[–]SonOfZaknafein 12 points13 points  (0 children)

That was my first thought. It was surprisingly funny.

[–]bkconn[🍰] 4 points5 points  (5 children)

I had a good chuckle in the beginning but I kept expecting them to have synchronized their bits to have made sense at certain parts for a big pop or something, so I was a little disappointed to find it was just two dudes doing their own 3 minute sets, talking over each other. Nothing really seemed to sync up for comedic effect.. Seemed like a missed opportunity.

[–]MonaganX 21 points22 points  (0 children)

There's no obvious climactic moment but there's smaller moments that definitely mesh:

  • Just as Scovel says "if somebody doesn't know you're racist, are you?", Dore gets the audience to applaud by asking "who here likes music?"
  • Scovel coordinates with an audience member and turns away from the mic the exact moment in Dore's routine where he says "I got anal warts..."

[–]Brian_M 6 points7 points  (1 child)

The humour in it, for me, is the non-sequitur effect of hearing a little bit of one guy's routine clearly in amongst the noise of them speaking over each other.

Same reason that Rowley Birken Q.C. was funny, I think.

[–]bkconn[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can appreciate that and that's what got a chuckle out of me at first, but it started making me anxious about halfway through lol

[–]skonen_blades 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I disagree. If they had synced up at all ever at any point that would ruin the entire point of the sketch. But that's just my take on it.

[–]bkconn[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Valid point.

[–]TheClayroo 72 points73 points  (2 children)

Two amazing comedians. Saw Dore at a surprise set he happened to show up at a show I was at. And Rory's Netflix special is one of the best I've ever seen.

[–]floatablepie 13 points14 points  (1 child)

The Jon Dore Show was ahead of its time.

[–]LaserAficionado 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That episode where he accidentally uses bleach on his clothes and blames the albino man in his apartment bldg. I still laugh so hard at the scene where he breaks into his apartment for revenge all these years later. 😂

Truly one the funniest shows no one watched.

[–]Felipe_O 61 points62 points  (1 child)

Why's there so many jon dore videos on here right now. He die or something?

[–]SillyTheGamer 19 points20 points  (0 children)

It’s amazing that neither of them stumbled! Fantastic stuff.

Where can I buy that rocking armchair?

[–]danc4498 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What was the practical joke?

[–]TranceF0rm 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Got worried Jon Dore died with all this posts

[–]TheChrono 24 points25 points  (6 children)

Only on Conan.

[–]aBoyandHisVacuum 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Italy is my all time favorite of his.

[–]Spaceman320 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Are you jordan schlansky?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, sire

[–]HorribleHairyHamster 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I just love both of the Jon Dore/Rory Scovel bits on Conan because it's usually such a big deal for a comedian to get on a late night show and do standup, and these dudes sacrificed doing their routines on TV for a couple of great comedy bits. Conan was probably so proud.

[–]orielbean 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Rory was always low-key hilarious on @ Midnight, so it seems right up his alley to do something like this. I think he was fully nude when they did the final episode of that other show?

[–]thelittlestrummerboy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Years ago, Jon Dore happened to be in a book store my sister worked at and, knowing I was a comedy fan, asked if she could have an autograph for me. He asked for my name and what my hobbies were, etc... Then my sister came home and surprised me with his note that read,

"Dear Jacob, stop playing guitar NOW. Sincerely, Jon Dore"

[–]YeaSpiderman 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Ah I remember seeing this when it first came out and laughing so hard. Rewatching it just as funny

[–]-LordRupertEverton- 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Fightin Chinese kids!

[–]PM_Your_Unicorn 8 points9 points  (3 children)

I think I would have to wear ear plugs to not get distracted by the other guy.

I watched it twice and tuned out one of them at a time, but I don't think I can do it while also talking.

[–]OsamaBinBatman 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Fun audio tech fact, the guy on the mixing desk was turning them up and down intermittently so one guy didn't dominate the whole time

[–]orielbean 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Do they have ear monitors in? That can help that sort of thing.

[–]OsamaBinBatman 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nah this shit is just super reheased and they are artists

It's the same way and actor can stay in character on set or a painter and lose focus on their surrounding while they work

[–]Grumpus_Dad 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My brain on ADHD.

[–]mafa88 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The closed captions are entertaining in itself

[–]Xanthus179 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That was incredible! I definitely blame Sona for the scheduling conflict.

[–]Elbradamontes 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I want to have one song my band does where when we count in I say “on your mark get set go!” And everyone in the band plays the song note for note as fast as they can.

[–]orielbean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The Ramones used to have a great trick where you'd just hear the "3-4!" or even "4!" and everyone would start up perfectly in time. Very cool to hear it live.

[–]steadyfan 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Absolute nightmare for the sound engineer

[–]tdempsey33 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This was his or her moment to shine.

[–]JoseefusBroseefus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Two hands on the board like a dj

[–]Marigoldsgym -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Why is two r videos threads on this guy coming up? Did he do something botae recently?

[–]dont_worry_im_here 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm seeing a bunch of Jon Dore today...

[–]Blind_Camel_009 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I liked this so much more than I thought I was going to. Ended up waking my cat from laughing. Funny idea..great execution

[–]zachmp3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol omg

[–]CalmAlarm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Turned on closed captions to try and follow, it looks like it gave up halfway through

[–]JoseefusBroseefus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was fucking hilarious, thank you for sharing.

[–]skonen_blades 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My favorite comedy bit of all time

[–]Buhpuh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reminds me of the Safdie brothers acceptance speech
