Making Dallas Even Better

Why Conan O’Brien Should Have Councilman Philip Kingston as a Guest

O’Brien, Kingston, Richter

As you probably know, Conan O’Brien comes to town Monday to broadcast a week of shows from the Majestic. That got me thinking. You know who I think sounds a whole lot like Conan’s sidekick, Andy Richter? I think District 14 Councilman Philip T. Kingston does. If you’ve never heard him speak, have a quick listen. And that got me thinking that not only does Philip T. Kingston sound like Andy Richter, but he actually kind of looks like him, too. A thin version of Richter. Or, or! More like the love child of Conan and Richter. Is it just me?

    Former Morning News reporter Joshua Benton has also been described as Conan and Richter’s love child:

  • Wylie H Dallas

    What about getting Kingston to agree to allow Conan to stand in for him at a City Council meeting or briefing? The comedic possibilities stagger the mind.

  • Tim Rogers

    I think I speak for everyone when I say that an extended exchange between Conan and Caraway is in the city’s best interest.
