Tag: Conan O'Brien (1-10 of 141)
When Conan O’Brien paid tribute to Robin Williams on his show Monday night, the talk show host had just learned that the famed comedian had passed away and was likely the first to break the news to some of his studio audience. For Tuesday’s show, O’Brien took some time to give Williams a proper tribute.
With co-host Andy Richter, O’Brien showed a selection of clips from the times he’d interviewed Williams—and shared a story about a ridiculous Irish-themed bicycle the actor had bought him to cheer him up after O’Brien lost The Tonight Show in 2010.
Monday’s episode of Conan ended on an unusually somber note. The cause: During the course of taping that evening’s show, Conan O’Brien, Andy Richter, and their guest Will Arnett got word of Robin Williams’ unexpected death.
“We tape these shows a few hours early, and by the time you see this now on TV, I’m sure that you’ll know. I’m sorry to anybody in our studio audience that I’m breaking this news—this is absolutely shocking and horrifying, and so upsetting on every level,” a visibly shaken O’Brien explained at the end of the show.
He and his cohort then took an opportunity to briefly salute their comrade. The most moving words came from Arnett, who worked with Williams in the 2006 film RV.
“As funny as he was—he’s truly one of the all-time greats—he was even better as a person,” the Arrested Development star said. “He was even more fantastic—just the loveliest, sweetest, one of the kindest guys that I’ve ever worked with. Just such a soft, warm, emotionally sweet guy, and it’s a major, major loss for everybody.” READ FULL STORY
On Monday night, the cast of Orange Is the New Black went on its first-ever late-night appearance as a group when stars Kate Mulgrew, Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Jason Biggs, Laverne Cox, and Lea DeLaria joined Conan O’Brien to talk about their hit Netflix show.
Perhaps the highlight of their appearance was Aduba revealing the secret to Crazy Eyes’ signature facial expression. But when she tried to talk O’Brien through the process of making his eyes pop like Aduba’s do on the show, he looked less crazy and more creepy and confused.
Conan O’Brien recently enlisted Dave Franco to go on a Tinder adventure with him. The stars set up profiles using fake names—Chip Whitley for O’Brien; Djengus Roundstone for Franco—and new profile pictures, then got to it. And by “got to it,” we mean they tried very hard to find a woman who would agree to meet up with them.
In order to be successful in his line of work, Conan O’Brien has to keep up with the times. And in today’s world, that involves teaming up with Dave Franco and trying to meet people using Tinder.
Step one: They create profiles using their real pictures but fake names—Djengus Roundstone (for Franco) and Chip Whitley (for O’Brien). Then after sorting through all of their many matches, including a 74-year-old woman named Gloria who isn’t O’Brien’s biggest fan, they jump into a duct tape-filled van and head to meet one of Franco’s matches. There, they discover what the internet has to offer.
There is at least one crotch shot involved in the making of this video.
The host of TBS’s Conan is a man of many talents, like telling jokes, interviewing guests, and looking exactly like Tarja Halonen, former president of Finland. As it turns out, he’s also got another secret aptitude—Conan O’Brien is also fully fluent in the strange language of emojis, a.k.a. the goofy, tiny pictures of eggplants and smiley poops that have largely replaced more prosaic forms of digital and textual communication, like words.
What does “castle balloon crescent moon sleepy bearded face” mean when translated into plain English, or “heart shoe basketball saxophone”? (That one’s kinda dirty.) O’Brien knows—and after watching the following clip, you will too. BRB; I’ve gotta go tell everyone I know that this is the episode of Dr. Phil where the rodeo clown has a heart attack. (Update: The video has been removed from Conan’s official channels, which is a shame. Guess you’ll just have to trust us on that.)
Tuesday marks the release of Ian Edwards‘ new comedy album 100% Half-Assed. It not only marks the first album for Edwards, a stand-up veteran, but it is also the first release on Team Coco Records, the new comedy label launched by Conan O’Brien. It’s the latest in a long line of collaborations between Edwards (who also wrote for 2 Broke Girls last season) and O’Brien. “I think I’m the only stand-up who has been on Conan’s show every time,” says Edwards, who made his debut on the old Late Night show back in 2007. “I did it when he was in New York, and then I did it when he had The Tonight Show, and I’ve done it on TBS. Conan always just wants you to be yourself. So why not go with the people who allow you to represent myself the way I really am?” READ FULL STORY
Before Conan O’Brien was the Conan O’Brien, he was starring in ’80s training videos. We all have to start somewhere, right?
Sharon Osbourne has had it with singing competition shows — all 600 of them.
Some background: Osbourne was a judge on the original X Factor in the U.K. from 2004 to 2007 and once again in 2013, as well as on America’s Got Talent from 2007 to 2012. But this doesn’t make her a fan of these sorts of series.
