Conan O’Brien welcomed Martin Short to his TV show, and the results were unbelievable. Martin just roasted Conan like no one else could in a hysterical interview.
Conan welcomes him to the couch, and Martin says, “You look sensational!” Conan falls for it by replying, “I do? Really, do I?” Martin says, “No, you do. I’m telling you, the new Queer Eye cast is doing wonders with you.” The audience loves it, so Martin continues.
Conan laughs too, and Martin says, “There’s nothing wrong with looking pasty.” Conan says, “I’m a white man, yes.” Martin fires back, ‘I mean, you make Mike Pence look like a character in Black Panther.”
Martin throws in another shot, saying Conan looks great, and he asks if Conan is 82 years old now! Conan can’t help but laugh as he gets burned time after time by Martin’s quick wit.
Martin wouldn’t let up, saying, “You look like Mr. Rogers if Mr. Rogers drank before each show. And I mean that with love.” They both laugh, and the audience cracks up too.
Martin talks about a tree-trimming party at his house, and Conan had his own big party the next night. Martin said, “And then his party was amazing. A cash bar, I mean that was surprising. But boy, KFC can cater.”
There’s even a bonus insult on how white Conan is. Martin says, “You look like God corrected a mistake with white-out.” Conan is left speechless at Martin’s quick-hitting insults, and everyone is left laughing.
