Conan O'Brien has the hottest strike facial hair

Beards_lFinally. Now that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are back (catch Ken Tucker’s review of their performances here), we can add ‘em to the O’Brien-Letterman mix and make a fair and balanced decision about who has the best-looking new facial hair on late-night TV. This is important! Stewart went with a traditional Strike Unibrow to show solidarity with writers and also Sam the Eagle. I give it one "ha"; points knocked off for mediocre color-blending. He could have gone at that thing with some Jolene. Colbert emerged at the end of A Daily Show looking like a prominent pilgrim community leader. His devotion to beard-growing is impressive and awesome. Still, I have to give PopWatch’s prestigious Best Strike Facial Hair award to Conan O’Brien. You guys can’t argue with me here, and not just because Letterman shaved his stubble on air last night. Conan just looks hot. He shouldn’t shave it. Someone will have to console me with this doll if/when he does.

If you somehow missed Conan singing "Sabotage" in the voice of Edith Bunker while his production crew plays Rock Band, squeal it with him after the jump. And here is a creepy picture of a little boy dressed as a pilgrim. You’re welcome!

    I tend to think all guys are hotter with beards, but I totally agree! Yay for Conan’s lucious red facial hair!!

  • Red

    Gingers rule!

  • Cara

    God! He’s never looked more Irish. I mean, yeah, the flaming red hair was a good indicator, but–look at him with that beard! As a three-quarters-Irish girl, I’m sort of into it :) :) :)

  • Martha

    Conan’s beard definitely rocks everyone else’s, though Colbert gets points for looking like Gandalf. And who knew that Conan could really play guitar and sing? Yes, his Edith Bunker does “Sabotage” is awesome, but he sang a country song with the band the other night and was good.

  • Jenn

    Yeah, Conan does look hot. Never thought I’d say that. Dave’s beard makes his face look huge.

  • Lauren

    Give him a yellow raincoat and he’s the gordon’s fisherman… still awesome though.

  • SuzieC

    I’m waiting for him to put on an Irish accent for an entire show. Bearded Conan looks amazing. I mean really, he does
    And that clip is priceless. It’s been a source of entertainment for days :)

  • T-Rex

    I never realized how much the beastie boys sound like Edith Bunker. Wow!

  • Jessica

    *oh* I’m crying from that Conan clip…that was masterful.

  • bonnylass

    oh, that beard! and that hilarious clip! I need to start watching conan more often.

  • Lene

    Whoa. I’ve had a secret (well, now not so secret) crush on Conan for a while – he’s hot in that geeky way – but with the beard? Yum.

  • CMU

    Hahahahaha. Oh, Conan. I have to agree: he looks downright sexy with the beard. I have also had a weird secret crush on him for a long time. I am glad someone else agrees. It’s really strange because I usually really don’t like facial hair, but he is lookin’ good with that strike beard. He should definitely keep it, at least for a while.

  • mrcr

    OMG – I had that doll when I was a litle girl!! LOL

  • haley Alseth

    Gotta say, my first crush was the redhead a couple houses down, and right now i’m engaged to a guy with red hair, as well. i’ve had that weird crush on Conan for quite some time now.

  • Annie

    Ha, secret stealer, I love it!
