One of Portland's best (and criminally under-appreciated) comedians, Richard Bain was featured on last night's episode of the Tonight Show. Watch Bain make his plea for Conan to blow up his car. Conan says he doesn't know if Bain will win the contest, but he "likes his style."

Better than the prize of a new car for Bain would be an opportunity to try out his act on the hallowed Tonight Show stage.

Bain plays tonight in Portland at Curious Comedy. For a taste, see Bain's Myspace.
