Conan O’Brien discussed wokeness on his podcast with Zach Woods, who was promoting his new show “In the Know.”

While Conan’s views typically lean left, he praised Woods’ show for skewering excesses on both sides of the political spectrum.

The show is “really funny and really well done” but also “skewer[s] a lot of the stuff that I think need skewering,” O’Brien said.

“I mean, so many things need skewering, on both sides of the spectrum,” O’Brien added. “But it is so funny.”

Woods’ character lampoons those trying too hard to appear woke on NPR.

Conan agreed this type of comedy is needed and enjoyed the show poking fun at people constantly one-upping each other to appear most politically correct.

“One of the things that I’m really looking forward to seeing more in the show is you and one of your co-workers are always trying to out-woke and out-PC each other,” O’Brien said.

“It makes for really good comedy, because you will be saying, ‘Well, there’s an unhoused person I met,’ and everyone’s very sanctimonious, and then she’s accusing you of being insensitive because you didn’t use the latest term,” he said.

“And I thought, oh, this is comedy that needs to be done right now,” he added.

While late night comedy has had a leftward bias, Conan believes humor shouldn’t be censorious or heavy-handed, and finds comedy in life’s absurdities regardless of political viewpoint.
