Alex Trebek got even with Conan O’Brien after being subjected to a lot of ribbing by the redhead repeatedly. On the extremely popular show known as Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Alex was the target of Conan who deconstructed and reconstructed many of his clips and made him look like an ass.
The “Jeopardy!” star however managed to land a slap or two on the face of Conan O’Brien (figuratively of course). He appeared on the show and said to Conan that he seemed to be having a lot of fun. Conan replied in the affirmative and said that they were huge fans of his show.
Trebek said he was a big guy capable of looking after himself. He then took the offensive and asked Conan if he had ever taken a look at himself lately. Trebek said that Conan had lost his marbles. A mash-up of Conan was than played and it was truly hilarious.
One of the monologue clips of Conan even showed him making a reference to Justin Bieber. At this Conan really lost it and said in shamefaced seriousness “Okay, Alex. I guess we are even now!”
It appears to be the case that when you are a celebrity there is nothing in your life that doesn’t get recorded for public scrutiny. And vow to anyone who makes fun of a colleague in show business. Word gets around and pretty soon you have what is the was left in stitches.
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that Conan won’t be doing any more parodies for a long time. He got his comeuppance and now the two comedians have neutralized their differences.
