In the second half of Conan O'Brien's interview with Newark mayor Cory Booker on The Tonight Show, the pair discussed Newark Now, an organization that works with recently released convicts to help them reintegrate into society and family life.

Though Conan had poked fun at Newark in previous weeks, he revealed at the interview's end that he and NBC Universal had each written checks to Newark Now for $50,000.

"It was one joke," joked O'Brien, "and, man, was it expensive."
