Conan Mocks Fellow TBS ‘Comedians’ the ‘Impractical Jokers': ‘Wangs From Staten Island’ (Video)

No seriously, he’s right

Conan O’Brien finally said what all intelligent people have been thinking about TBS’ “The Impractical Jokers” for years now. It isn’t very nice.

On Wednesday’s “Conan,” the TBS late-night host mocked his Turner-mates’ popular and long-running schtick during a segment in which O’Brien was supposed to be hashing out human resources issues with his assistant Sona Movsesian.

“How many comedians right now does TBS have?” Conan declared at one point in the highly unprofessional meeting with an actual corporate HR rep. “Oh right, ‘The Impractical Jokers,'” he added, putting on a defeated face.

“Well it’s always ‘The Impractical Jokers': Those wangs from Staten Island!” he continued. “They get all the glory.”

O’Brien then changed his tone. Kind of.

“I’m sorry, fellas. I didn’t mean to go after you,” he said. “I know you all grew up on a landfill. You’re doing the best you can.”

“I hope they have some good *tricks* they can play on that orphanage,” O’Brien said. That’s when the real mocking of their particular brand of comedy started.

We don’t think Movsesian really got what she was looking for out of this meeting. AT&T, now the parent company of Turner, might want to elevate her complaints.
