The Aug. 5 episode of TBS’ Conan saw a special furlough for the ladies of Litchfield Federal Prison as the cast of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black joined talk show host Conan O’Brien for a night of gossip and shenanigans.
The show began with a cold open that saw Out100 honoree Laverne Cox portraying her character Sophia Burset as she took the place of Conan’s normal hairdresser to lampoon his trademark hair coif.
The evening continued with such highlights as Uzo Aduba ("Crazy Eyes") teaching Conan how to make crazy eyes of his own, and former Star Trek captain Kate Mulgrew ("Red") forcing Conan to dance for the audience.
Of particular note is a moment when lesbian comedian Lea DeLaria ("Boo") shared with Conan how she taught actress Natasha Lyonne (Nicky) to “Fuck a woman.” Miming along with her hands, she divulged her technique of “Look for the car keys, look for the car keys, Judy Garland.”
The show, fresh off the heels of 12 Emmy nominations and a Time cover story for actress Laverne Cox, is looking to premiere its third season during June of 2015.
