Damn you Conan O'Brien!
Tune in to Conan tonight to see a comic doing a joke painfully similar to one of my favorites in my act. It's a joke I've been doing for a while, and it was even my "Joke of the Week" in Time Out New York back in February.
It might just be a case of independent creation and if it weren't my favorite joke I wouldn't be so bummed.
Damn. Now if I continue to do the thing people are going to think I got it from this guy. Comedy sucks sometimes.
Anyway, here's me doing my version of the joke at a February '06 appearance at Zanies in Chicago, IL: (It's the 'dress for work' joke around the 1:00 mark).
