On stage, Ron Funches’ warm, teddy-bear persona and low-key, unhurried delivery and double entendres ensure that his deadpan R-rated zingers (check out his “Fuck Linda neck tattoo” and “Fat Pussy” bits) wouldn’t offend a church lady.
It’s an art he’s been honing for eight years since the Chicago native — whose appearances on “Conan” and “Chelsea Lately” are far removed from the days of being a “shy teenager” — relocated to Oregon and started working clubs in Portland.
“Originally I tried to be more high-energy, more aggressive, like a lot of black comedians I saw, but it just wasn’t me,” says Funches, 31, whose easygoing manner made him a natural fit as the “nerdy, shy space cadet” Shelley opposite fellow nerds Brent Morin and Rick Glassman on NBC’s “Undateable.”

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live" was back with a bang following a two-week hiatus, hosting the cast of "Guardians of the Galaxy." Chris Pratt, who plays Guardians leader Peter Quill, dominated the conversation, discussing his weight loss regimen ("vomiting, Zumba, and Shake Weight") and how much fun it was to shoot the film. The actor noted that he was "truly playing every day. I had a laser gun and a spaceship." But that playing came at a price, as Pratt admitted that he got so swept away shooting his fake gun that he couldn't help but making shooting noises with his mouth -- to the ire of the film crew.

If you didn't see the spellbinding 12-minute video of Conan O'Brien and Dave Franco enjoying a Tinder adventure, remedy that immediately. Every last second of it is good. And now we have the outtakes from that app, and get this: They're also awesome. Conan is not dissuaded by women who hate booty calls. In fact, it makes him even more determined. And even a little frightening. »

Conan O’Brien recently enlisted Dave Franco to go on a Tinder adventure with him. The stars set up profiles using fake names—Chip Whitley for O’Brien; Djengus Roundstone for Franco—and new profile pictures, then got to it. And by “got to it,” we mean they tried very hard to find a woman who would agree to meet up with them.
Franco and O’Brien did end up meeting with a fellow Tinder user—and even managed to lure her into their creepy, duct tape-filled van. But the most amusing part of the bit was watching the two craft their profiles, »

Conan O'Brien and Dave Franco‘s deliberately creepy exploration of Tinder barely began to reveal the depths of their Tinderness. Last week, the two gauged women's reactions to their arriving for dates in a van. But in newly released outtakes, it gets shadier: O'Brien puzzles over how young is too young for his potential Tinder dates, contemplates how far he's willing to drive and realizes after the fact that he forgot to remove his wedding ring for one picture.

Conan O’Brien recently heard the young people in his office talk about Tinder, so he enlisted Dave Franco to help him try it out. In the process, Conan shows a surprising knowledge of Grindr, which he says he spends all his free time on. I seriously doubt that, because a giant ginger like Conan would be incredibly popular on Grindr.
The two make Tinder profiles, and Conan strikes out with a septuagenarian, while Dave predictably lands a hottie, although she does come with a family escort. Not a bad idea when you consider Dave and Conan roll up in a 1970s porno van. But there’s no situation Franco’s charm can’t handle.

Last year, Latino-Review reported that the "Planet Hulk" comic book storyline would soon be stomping into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (In the comic book, the Hulk is banished from Earth and winds up on a fearsome world, following a "Conan"-style trajectory from gladiatorial warrior to ruler of the planet.) The rumors were debunked, but late last month, Hitfix teased a potential "Guardians of the Galaxy" sequel that would also feature "Planet Hulk"-style story elements (head to that site for the full, potentially spoilery details). Well, we recently spoke to "Guardians of the Galaxy" writer/director James Gunn, and he set the record straight on both counts. When we asked him about the rumors of the Hulk joining up with the Guardians of the Galaxy (which include Chris Pratt's Star Lord, Zoe Saldana's Gamora, and a talking, trigger-happy raccoon named Rocket voiced by Bradley Cooper), he gave us the unvarnished truth:. »

Conan O'Brien wanted the full Tinder experience, so what did he do? He recruited the help of the winsome Funny Or Die favorite Dave Franco for help. He absolutely got the help he needed. This is an elementary Conan O'Brien observation, but it's so nice to see a talk show host who can be seriously improvisational during a bit. Almost all of the jokes Conan uses here are made up on the spot; long-form extemporaneous humor is pretty rare among talk show hosts these days. I'm still laughing about half the material in this 12-minute video including the very existence of Conan's typewriter. »

Armed with two fake profiles Chip Whitley for Conan and Jangus Roundstone who admittedly “looks like a poor man's Dave Franco," the pair begin their quest to find some nice ladies who are Dtf. Or, at the very least participate in the hilarious bit.
Bring on the Tinder van full of booze and duct tape! Not weird at all. »
When Conan O'Brien tries out Tinder, hilarious antics are bound to ensue! This week, the Conan host showcased his recent adventures trying out the hookup app. "For months now I've been listening to all the young people in my office talk about Tinder, a social networking site where you can find people in your area you've never met," O'Brien said in a video clip. "They're in your vicinity and they're ready to meet and maybe hook up. Naturally, because I'm a creep, I'm intrigued to find out about this." He added, "But I didn't want to do it alone, so I got the help of a young, hot Hollywood stud, Mr. Dave Franco." "I'm a little »
This might be the best thing you see all day! Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien filmed one hilarious segment for "Conan" on Thursday, where the twosome decided to make some faux-Tinder profiles ... and meet up with their matches in person. It's seriously hilarious -- check out Franco and O'Brien's adventure above! With a profile like, "I enjoy wearing Crocs for their style over their comfort and I hear I look like a poor man's Dave Franco. F--k Dave Franco!," we're sure the "Neighbors" star had no problem finding some matches. Conan named "Chai lattes" and "showering" among some of his hobbies and lied about his age. "I am 42 years old and people tell me I look like Conan O'Brien," the comedian posted on the site. Not only did the actor and the late night host create truly ridiculous profiles, they rented a creepy van, which O'Brien dubbed "Brown Lightening," to »

Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien took Tinder to a hilarious new level on Conan on Thursday night. The two decided to create fake profiles and swipe together, even staging a hilarious photo shoot for their profiles first. "I am 42 years old, and people tell me I look like Conan O'Brien," Conan - aka Chip Whitley - wrote in his. "I like Chai lattes and showering." Dave, aka Djengus Roundstone, wrote, "I enjoy wearing Crocs for their style over their comfort, and I hear I look like a poor man's Dave Franco. F*ck Dave Franco!" After saying "yes" and "no" to potential dates, they even swapped phones . . . and both matched with 74-year-old Gloria. Though she turns Conan down gently, she loves Dave. Check out the video above to see their shenanigans, including when they hop in their van called "Brown Lightning" and meet their Tinder matches face to face. »

Tans gone wrong
In the utterly charming video, Conan and Franco create dating profiles for themselves under the names Chip Whitley and Djengus Roundstone. What follows is a hilarious rivalry over a 74-year-old woman, a van trip to track down one of Franco's matches and countless instances where Conan's ego gets knocked down a few pegs.

Step one: They create profiles using their real pictures but fake names—Djengus Roundstone (for Franco) and Chip Whitley (for O’Brien). Then after sorting through all of their many matches, including a 74-year-old woman named Gloria who isn’t O’Brien’s biggest fan, they jump into a duct tape-filled van and head to meet one of Franco’s matches. »

Conan O'Brien has the youngest audience in late night, in large part because he pays attention to what those young viewers care about — and then emulates them in as creepy a way possible. See video: Conan's Masturbating Bear Rescued From Certain Death By Stephen Colbert's Masturbating Bear The digital leader expanded his domain to dating/casual sex app Tinder on Thursday night, with Dave Franco deputized as his cruising buddy. Operating under the very common assumed names of Djengus Roundstone and Chip Whitley, the pair went looking for internet love, which led to a battle over a 74-year-old woman named Gloria and. »

Did you miss Thursday night's late night talk shows? Moviefone's got you covered. Here are some highlights:
Victoria's Secret Angel, Miranda Kerr, stopped by "The Tonight Show" to chat about her organic skin care line and to play a game of Flip Cup with Jimmy Fallon, and she was surprisingly feisty. Let's just say this Aussie's game was on point!
Miranda also chatted about her tricks for exercising while stationary (yes, it's possible) and taught Jimmy how to "clench and release" his "butt muscles." So, next time you see this host with the most lounging in an armchair during an interview, he might secretly be workin' on his fitness.
Things got slightly steamy on "Conan" last night! This beloved late night vet got a lesson in Tinder from Dave Franco, who walked Coco through the ropes of online dating. These two took the perfect profile picture, chose a flawless username (Chip Whitley, »

After taking the Internet by storm all week with a series of videos from his latest album, “Mandatory Fun,” “Weird Al” Yankovic turned his attention to a live performance of “Tacky” on “Conan.” See video: Weird Al, Rick Springfield and Jordin Sparks Audition for the Star Wars Cantina Band He certainly chose an appropriate outfit for his performance of the parody of Pharrell Williams‘ “Happy.” Channeling the same terrible looks he and his Hollywood guests sported in the song's official video, Yankovic definitely looked tacky — or would that be weird — in a mismatched outfit as he made his way through. »

Here's a very charming video of Conan and Dave Franco — under the aliases Djengus Roundstone and Chip Whitley — attempting to pick up women on Tinder. This video has a lot going on, including digs at James Franco, Dave and Conan fighting over a 74-year-old woman named Gloria, and an expedition in a duct-tape filled van named "Brown Lightning." Just watch it, it's a whole thing. »

Thirty years ago, a killing machine from 2029—assuming the form of an Austrian bodybuilder—arrived with a lethal directive to alter the future. That he certainly did. The Terminator, made for $6.4 million by a couple of young disciples of B-movie king Roger Corman, became one of the defining sci-fi touchstones of all time. Its $38 million gross placed it outside of the top-20 box-office releases for 1984, yet the film grew into a phenomenon, spawning a five-picture franchise that’s taken in $1.4 billion to date and securing a place on the National Film Registry, which dubbed it “among the finest science-fiction films in many decades. »
