It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and you know what that means: you have an excuse to avoid work and watch these classic St. Patrick’s Day sketches, instead!
Of course, Conan – late night’s resident Irishman – has covered the holiday exceptionally well over the years (Splitsider’s got a round-up of his most memorable sketches). But lots of other comics and shows have paid homage to this party holiday, whose origins nobody can really explain, though it doesn’t stop anyone from celebrating.
