Mathew Large : "Yeah, I just started getting into playing guitar." *Pulls out $5,000 guitar and plays fluently*

Fortnite Productions : the political singer part, is definitely green day

JUN villafuerte : G U I T A R! -Mlep(clay)nos

Marcus James : Casually picks up a Gibson acoustic behind the couch to make a joke All my music equipment pricetags combined sum to less than this guitar's worth FFS

Evan Maines : He’s self-aware. It’s supposed to be lame... lol. So many pissed off people.

Matt Graller : These really are only jokes that comedians will get, because they're basically anti-jokes

Shane The pop collector : I was legitimately thinking about this video and it came up I don’t know where

M.B.G. Music Production : Drummers are so lucky...………….They get to spend all of their time hanging out with musicians!


Mid Hunter : This is such a bizarre moment. For the first time in human history, Conan didn't interrupt while someone was performing.

Tijuana : He told a joke with the word politics, without saying Trump. Give the man his award/vegetable.

Tyler Gatewood : That last guitar joke was definitely an impression of Edge while Bono talks for 5 minutes about politics each show

Crazelord91 : > Video that is clearly labled as jokes only musicians understand > Dislike because you're not a musician and don't get the jokes

Fsuholley : Taking the cymbal stand apart leaving the cymbal attached is so true and funny as hell imo.

K Lu : The entire set was premised on the joke that it was not going to come across as funny

Hello : Guys the joke is that you all are arguing over what the joke is.

David Tiah : That guitar right there. If only people knew how expensive 😂

Nazareadain : I mean, this is troll comedy. People think the jokes are supposed to be the funny part when it's people taking the bait and getting visibly and audibly upset at something as trivial as not understanding where the joke is. These jokes basically need the comment section, and I'm in tears after scrolling down.

napukapu : Ok folks, here's how the bit works: People in niche groups like musicians or artists like to pretend they have access to marvelous elite information and can find joy in things the average "normie" won't understand. But Fred's showing us, despite how hard the cocksniffers try to obfuscate the humor with "it's a musician thing, only US musicians understand", in the end it's just a bunch of bullshit. There you go, it's not rocket science really.

Motorcar Classics : Fred Armisen's humor is always an acquired taste but a respected one.

adam allen : Only came to drool over the guitar

Carlos : "Trying to move on to other instruments" and then pulls out a $5-6000 guitar. Way more if its a vintage one

King Aria : Okay, but are we going to ignore the fact that Conan fake laughs in most of his interviews? Just watch his reactions; you might understand what I'm talking about

Zachary Collins : "So you're a musician. You're a drummer" Best joke of the video.

neverendingweekend : Not hilarious ..but strangely enjoyable.

Alex Swanepoel : The way how that just wasn’t funny even if you understand music

mrekbass : Two guys are walking down the street. Ones broke... the other is also a musician! WHAA-WHaa-whaa!

Ryan Peck : "This is a guitar" ~ *Pulls out an Elite Gibson Songbird....

Isabella Aguiar l-/ : Sksksk, I’m not a set player but I do percussion and I can 10/10 relate

Jackson Mackey : The jokes are not funny

Roxette Kelsey : Fred Armisen is such a one man band and he is so good at it. I love it!

Harrison H. : OK guys I'mma show you what it looks like when a guitar player stops. *starts playing quarter notes with one chord * after a few measures *stops playing the progression*

Radio Illuminati : Conan reminds me 3:31 of Bill O'Reilly: "We do it LIVE'!"

Natalie Kendel : - You're making 3 people happy. - That's all I want. (LOL!)

Drew : The title brought me, a woodwind player, here. I was disappointed.

11DNA11 : How do you know a drummer is behind the door? He doesn't know when to come in.

Sugarsail1 : omg as an ex-drummer I found my self laughing when no one else really got it...this guy was spot on.

Peter Sardina : sus2, but you’re close.

G. Andaluz : So dry, and so funny, and so many people missed the joke. Damn that was funny!

SCAR-MY-GUITAR : Win a free guitar here!!! ​@UCPyswbEfZk51yDzFuhIwamg​

CHUKWU GAMING : I have a joke A, g flat and E Went to the bar The bartender said sorry we dont serve minors

OFR : Wait!? You said musicians and then you started talking about drummers??

Elee90 : That was probably one of the most expensive joke ive heard. What is that. Zildjian constantinople?

Smash Marxism : How do you get a drummer off your porch? *Just pay for the pizza and go back inside.*
