Conan O’Brien

By The Way #8April 18, 2013

Conan O’Brien and Jeff have been pals since their days of rooming together in Chicago. Conan shares memories of being woken up by Jeff at 2 am to do something that amused him earlier that day, hosting a talk show called “Wild Blue Yonder” as George Takei in their living room, and intentionally being a terrible improviser while he performed as Spooneye the Pirate during The Happy Happy Good Show. He also tells us when it’s apparent that guests on his show haven’t been out of their bubble, how chasing the perfect show helps him to keep going, and the time he invited John Candy to the Harvard Lampoon.
