    Andy Richter Eats Crow Burrito

    By Kyle | March 24, 2009

    Andy Richter will be back at Conan O’Brien’s side when the latter takes over the White House of comedy, The Tonight Show, in June (only to discover that the ex-president has been promoted to king). Richter, who had a remarkably long string of failed sitcoms after wandering off the Conan reservation, says in today’s Post that the only thing that concerns him is that he might have to eat crow served up by the entertainment press. But, he figures, “Crow can be prepared in very delicious way. Crow burrito. I lover burritos!” Welcome back, Andy. I’m still not sure you’re funny. I think David Letterman will beat Conan handily. Why watch an imitation when you can watch the original?

      Crow burrito? Is that the best he can do? I am totally sure. Andy Richter is not funny.

      Letterman??? Last time he was funny was when he told his monthly Clinton joke. He’s another bitter cranky old liberal douchebag. Conan is a half-step above him.

      As someone who likes Conan, but rarely gets to watch, the coming June is a double-edged sword. Sure, I’ll get to watch without rendering myself useless the entire next morning, but the earlier move, NBC’s iron fist, and what comes of it doesn’t leave this viewer very enthused. Triumph and the Leno demographic don’t seem to mix.

      Agreed. I have always been a Conan fan but I fear that a lot of his stuff was better suited for the later time slot. I don’t think he’ll be able to be as self-deprecating in his new spot.

      At least Conan is still funny. I used to like Letterman because he was cranky, but now I can’t stomach him anymore because he has gotten mean.

      Wait, Conan O’Brien is an imitation of David Letterman? But he’s funny.
