Listen up! Watch Beardyman freestyle beatbox about “ladyfingers” on Conan in his American TV debut

Watching Beardyman jam with Reggie Watts and Tim Minchin at the 2010 Montreal Just For Laughs festival was a true highlight, but American audiences got their first true glimpse of the Beardyman experience last night on Conan.

Beardyman showed his prowess by letting the panelists (in this case, actress Melissa McCarthy) pick the title of a song — "Ladyfingers" — and then asking the audience to shout out two genres of music — he heard bluegrass and jazz.

Hit it!


Beardyman's official U.S. tour dates this weekend include a stop at the Electronic Daisy Festival in Orlando, Fla., on May 28, followed by the Detroit Electronic Music Festival on May 29. He may also make a stopover in NYC. So keep your ear to the ground (or your eyes on my site) because you need to see him perform live.
