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
Tag: Conan O'Brien (11-20 of 144)
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.
Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea Lately will end in 2014 after an eight-year run. As a result, Handler’s been the subject of many a rumor about what she’s planning to do next.
But don’t believe everything you read. On Monday night, Chelsea stopped by Conan to clarify that despite reports about a move to CBS or Netflix, she hasn’t actually made any decisions about what she’s doing after Chelsea Lately: “Everything that’s printed about me is a lie.” (Note to readers: This post is not a lie.)
Billionaire Donald Sterling made headlines last week when TMZ posted audio recordings of the Los Angeles Clippers owner making racist comments. Specifically, the audio captures Sterling telling his mistress that he doesn’t want her associating with black people in public and asking her not to bring “them” to his games.
Everyone from President Obama to Snoop Dogg have offered their two cents on the controversy — and on Monday night, it was late night’s turn. See what each host had to say about Sterling, including what kind of animal he resembles, below:
What would the Party Planning Committee say?
Mindy Kaling may seem like the world’s best boss– but as the actress told Conan O’Brien last night, her employees at The Mindy Project actually refer to her as a dictator.
The reason? She’s not a fan of birthdays in the office. Besides concern over how long it takes to actually sing “Happy Birthday,” Kaling also shared that she doesn’t give out gifts, because she has already given her employees the best gift of all: Their jobs. Sounds like someone has been taking management tips from Michael Scott.

Conan O’Brien’s hair might’ve looked like it was prepared by a team of professionals for the MTV Movie Awards — but don’t let its extra bounce fool you. Conan prepared that hairdo himself, with the use of a hot glue gun, some tape, and a microwave, among other not-very-safe things. Apparently, his real hair looks a lot like Christian Bale’s did in American Hustle…and we’ve got proof.
On Monday night’s edition of Conan, O’Brien gave his audience a sneak peek into his dressing room just before the Awards. Who knew a microwave was good for things other than heating up hot pockets?
Watch the clip below:
It’s time for the biggest award show of the year!
Not really, of course. The MTV Movie Awards isn’t so much a legitimate award show as it is a way for stars to plug their big summer movies by trying to make a “viral” moment happen without any backlash. But, any award show that wants to give Channing Tatum a Trailblazer award can’t be all bad. Fingers crossed the inevitable look-back montage includes a little She’s The Man.
Tonight, make like the stars and imbibe a little during the ceremony. It can only make the unique combination of Conan O’Brien, Ice Cube, and Rihanna funnier. READ FULL STORY
Sure, the MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, but it’s not the only game in town: Over on HBO, the competition will be a brand-new episode of Game of Thrones. So how does host Conan O’Brien plan on combating the swords-and-sandals series? With both skin and spoilers, naturally.
“I’d like people to really see a lot of my body for the first time,” O’Brien tells EW of his plans as host. “What’s interesting is that the world has changed so much since when I first got into television; you have to be increasingly fearless. So, I want people to see parts of my body that no one should see.
“I’ve also gotten a hold of the Game of Thrones episode that’s on that night,” O’Brien continues. “So on the day before the awards, I’m going to get out as many spoilers as possible to kill the Game of Thrones experience for people. Then, out of either despair or rage, they’ll have to tune in to see the MTV Movie Awards.” READ FULL STORY
As Beyoncé sings: “Pretty Hurts.”
No one may know that better than Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, who is no stranger to everyone — seriously, pretty much everyone — thinking she’s quite attractive (and, you know, a very talented actress). But all that glitters isn’t gold: Hendricks stopped by Conan last night, where Conan O’Brien asked her what it’s like to experience men getting all “silly and dopey” when they see her. Turns out, it can be a bit of a hazard.
