Joe Manganiello Teaches Conan How to Strip

By: Ross von Metzke

According to Joe Manganiello, the key to being a successful stripper starts with the name — hence his moniker “Big Dick Richie” from the film Magic Mike.

The True Blood star appeared on Conan to promote his new stripper documentary La Bare, and he offered up what he thought should be Conan O’Brien’s stripper name — “Big Red.”

“Like a Viking, with armor,” Manganiello joked. “I’m here to pillage your village.”

Manganiello then offered up a few moves to O’Brien, teaching him how to do a pelvic body roll while giving a lap dance.

Manganiello is set to appear in the sequel to Magic Mike, which starts shooting later this year. You can watch the segment from Conan below.
