Dana Carvey tells Conan that he and George Bush are totally best friends

Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump impression isn’t particularly funny and hasn’t been for a while, but part of the reason Saturday Night Live dumps Baldwin in orange paint every week is because it drives the real Trump crazy—which, to be fair, is a little funny. Apparently, though, Trump’s predecessors in the White House…

On Conan, Timothy Olyphant reveals the very good reason he's not in Avengers: Infinity War

At this point in his impressively varied career, Timothy Olyphant just isn’t content with the standard late-night talk show chit-chat. Last week, the Santa Clarita Diet star spent much of his Late Night With Seth Meyers interview taking issue with Meyers’ introduction, and grilling the host about the nature of their…

Conan O'Brien reignites the Celtics-Lakers rivalry with the help of Magic Johnson—and Larry Bird's face

Sure, perhaps the storied NBA rivalry between the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers isn’t all it used to be back when James Worthy, Kevin McHale, Michael Cooper, Dennis Johnson, Kareem and the Chief were chucking elbows and sweating it out in the old, completely un-air-conditioned Boston Garden. But that doesn’t…

Watch Conan O'Brien pitch himself for a back-up career as Dwayne Johnson's hapless stunt double

Despite his intimidating physique—dude’s 6'4"—Conan O’Brien’s late-night career doesn’t leave much time for his obvious second calling, the world of high-profile action movie stunts. But—as O’Brien knows better than most—there’s no true job security in the talk show game, which might explain why this clip from his TBS…

Conan O'Brien flies to Haiti, invites actual Haitians to insult our dumb president

Decent citizens shrugged despairingly upon hearing that President Donald Trump used the word “shitholes” (or was it “shithouses”?) to describe Haiti and a number of African countries, already envisioning the justifiable fury, administration denials, and lack of any and all consequence that would follow. Late show…

Conan O'Brien to executive produce an animated Obama/Biden time-traveling buddy comedy

Here’s one for anybody still clinging to the Barack Obama-Joe Biden friendship as the last fading light of hope in a dark and Trump-filled world: Conan O’Brien has just signed on to executive produce a new animated TV series about the two formerly presidential buddies, in which they not only pal around, making goofy…

Andy Richter picks 5 of his favorite Conan guests, from Andy Daly to Amy Poehler

Andy Richter is best known for being the long-running late-night sidekick on Conan O’Brien’s talk shows. A number of notable celebrities have come through Conan’s doors during Richter’s tenure, and in the video above, Richter tells us five of his favorite Conan guests and what makes for a great appearance.

Cantankerous prospector David Letterman emerges on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to refute Conan’s horse story

Conan O’Brien appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Friday, where he told a funny story about how David Letterman once sent him a horse. Unprepared for a horse in his life (especially the ornery one Letterman had selected), O’Brien confided to Colbert that the gift (in recompense for a glowing profile…

Conan makes Kumail Nanjiani cut himself in half in the latest Clueless Gamer clip

Another high-profile video game is set to arrive in stores in a couple of days—in this case, highly anticipated sequel Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War. (You can read the start of Matt Gerardi’s coverage of the game right here). That means it’s time once again for Conan O’Brien to joke and roll his eyes through another…

Late-night hosts call bullshit on the GOP and NRA and decide now is exactly the time to talk about gun violence

The night after the day of the (current) worst mass shooting in American history is a tough fucking room if you’re doing a late-night comedy show. Trevor Noah on The Daily Show, Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, Seth Meyers on Late Night, and the hosts of The Late Late Show With James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and …

Conan O'Brien asks NBC's Katy Tur about Trump's obsession with her, the Backstreet Boys, and fake steaks

Conan O’Brien’s self-deprecating goofball shtick doesn’t traditionally incorporate many hard edges when it comes to politics. Sure, he takes his monologue Donald Trump potshots, but the host’s onstage persona rarely infuses his political material with much resembling the harder-edged anger of his late night…
