Kristin Chenoweth on Conan Doing a Bit

Kristin Chenoweth is her Usual Adorable Self







Kristin Chenoweth goes through a chain restaurant bit on the Conan late night show. She also gets to compare her height to Conan, which is pretty funny, since he is famously tall and she ... isn't. This aired in March 2012.


Kristin Chenoweth Parodies Anthony Weiner

Kristin Chenoweth is Perfect




Kristin Chenoweth kills two birds with one stone by singing the (to some ears annoying) tune "Popular" from the musical "Wicked" as a parody of Anthony Weiner. She has the perfect chops for this, with all the Broadway mannerisms and inflections down pat. You may have to be into the theater scene to really appreciate this, or at least up on New York City political dirt.

As background, Kristin performed the leading role of Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, in "Wicked" on Broadway in 2003-2004 before leaving to star in "The West Wing" on television. She was nominated for a Tony Award for the role, and, to the extent that she has one, it is her trademark role.
