In his epic career as a writer and host, Conan O’Brien has brought us thousands of laughs. Before you catch him on Maron this week, let’s take a look at some of his greatest moments.
10. Paul Rudd Interviews
This is a collaborative effort, but it’s brilliant – every time Paul Rudd is on the show, he presents a clip from ’80s flop Mac & Me.
9. If They Mated
There’s no reason that the cheap Photoshop that Conan’s staff uses to create these “celebrity babies” should kill like it does.
8. Conan Hates My Homeland
After being on the receiving edge of angry emails from Ukraine, Conan set out to denigrate every single country on Earth.
7. Celebrity Secrets
Putting stars in a cheap jail set and having them “admit” obviously fictional secrets is consistently brilliant.
6. Pierre Bernard’s Recliner of Rage
Put a mild-mannered and severely nerdy graphic designer in a comfy chair, give him a topic and comedy genius is born.
