Conan O'Brien got by with a little help from his friends this weekend -- namely, Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Aziz Ansari (Parks and Recreation), Jonah Hill (Superbad), Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), and, arriving in a most unique fashion, Jim Carrey.
O'Brien, 47, is currently making stops throughout the U.S. on his "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour" and his live performance in Los Angeles was a memorable one, to say the least, according to MTV.
Returning to the Universal lot for the first time since his short-lived gig as The Tonight Show host (he joked to the audience, "Don't boo too loudly. If you listen very carefully, you can hear bad ideas being green-lit"), O'Brien sarcastically jested about his difficult life, post late-night TV battle. He then broke into Five for Fighting's 2000 hit single, "Superman (It's Not Easy)."
Enter: Jim Carrey, dressed in full superhero garb! Carrey, 48, sang a duet with O'Brien to an enthusiastic crowd. Even from a fan video, it's hard not to get swept up in the giddy silliness of it all.
But that was hardly the only celeb sighting during April 24's show. Hamm, Azari, Hill, and McBrayer all took turns pulling the "Chuck Norris Policeman Handle." (NBC has claimed ownership of the original name, The "Walker, Texas Ranger Lever" -- a comedic bit from O'Brien's NBC days The Tonight Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.)
