Dear everybody: Your joke isn’t as funny — or original — as you think it is.

Conan O’Brien pointed out as much on his show last night, noting that every local news anchor in America made the exact same movie reference when noting that Mike Myers and his wife are expecting their second child. And no, it wasn’t a “mini me” remark.

Cory Monteith: Matthew Morrison dedicates cabaret show to 'Glee' costar

In keeping with the show-must-go-on spirit of his TV series, Glee star Matthew Morrison went ahead with his cabaret act, Up Close and Personal with Matthew Morrison, this afternoon following the death last night of his costar Cory Monteith. According to a source at the show, Morrison walked onstage at NYC’s 54 Below theater with his Glee piano player, Brad Ellis, who also accompanies him in his stage show, and said to the crowd, “Let’s acknowledge the elephant in the room. What do you do in this situation? We came here to do a show. You came here to see a show. And that’s what we’re going to do. We’re doing this in Cory’s honor.” The audience applauded, and Morrison invited his band onstage for a special rendition of “What I Did for Love,” a song performed by Lea Michele on the second season of Glee.┬áMorrison has five additional shows scheduled through Wednesday.
