Conan O’Brien is a very cerebral comedian. His intelligence and wit are amazing especially since he is also a physical comedy genius whose routines can go from lowest to highest denominator with a simple tug on the invisible string attached to his belt.
Here are some must-see Conan O’Brien videos:
On the youtube you can find Conan’s episode of “Inside the Actors Studio” (in 9/parts):
Conan O’Brien’s Speech to the Havard Class of 2000 is pure gold.
Conan is also responsible for the Monorail episode of The Simpsons. That is not only one of the best episodes of The Simpsons but it was and still is one of the best episodes of any television show.
Conan O’Brien’s late-night shows have been a beacon of light among late night shows. He isn’t afraid of his weirdness, his height or his hairs, he embraces them. The opening monologues he writes are universally funny and get even better when he makes mistakes or the audience doesn’t laugh.
