I don't get to see Jon Dore perform live too often, but whenever I do, his willingness to commit to something completely foolish usually wins me over. Seeing him listed on the programming schedule as the first stand-up comedian to perform on Conan O'Brien's TBS show gave me hope that Conan also was willing to take a step forward into something different and silly that invites viewers to come along for the ride, instead of simply catering to them.

Jon Dore did not disappoint last night. When he worked out his set in NYC a few weeks ago, he drew out the opener even longer, but here, he only had five minutes. This train of fools is leaving the station. All aboard!
