  • Conan O'Brien: How To Be Witty
    Discover The 4 Emotions You Need To Make a Killer First Impression:
    Comedy Playlist:
    Conan O'Brien has an extremely fast sense of humor and wit. When we watch him interact on Conan on TBS or the Team Coco channel, he can seem impossibly conversationally clever, which is why he has had no problem entertaining millions of people for nearly 20 years in interviews and now his Clueless Gamer series.
    But the truth is that there are principles behind the kind of sharp wit that Conan uses so often. And while his years of comedy training have made him a master, simply understanding the principles and using them in your own life can make people find you much much funnier. So let’s take a look at those principles.
    0:48 Out of context analysis with Clueless Gamer as one example
    3:39 Be specific like how Conan teases Kevin Hart as one example
    4:36 See the doubling down here by Conan O'Brien and on TBS

    you just have to be intelligent in order to make those witty remarks, you cant have a funny response if you dont know about the subject.
    it helps that he went to haaahhvvvaad.

    I’ve practiced speciality for 2 years in conversations. It’s fun. It helps if you use something specific from something your knowledgeable about, for me it’s history. I compare things specifically from history.

    Is this considered hyperbole or irony? "It’s a good thing joker didn’t come out 100 years ago otherwise we’d have two world wars. Can you imagine if we had that?"

    Specificity is super effective for clowning and roasting. It's hard to defend against very specific, precise insults.

    He's by far the funniest talk show host.. because more well known guys like the two jimmy .. Kimmel and fallon always try making new segments and mostly they fail to make it successful.. but i don't remember any of conan segments failing.,. He went to many countries and made jokes which are pretty amazing and lot of people knew him internationally. He's like the guy who becomes anyone's best friend in hours
