Conan O’Brien’s made 25 years of late night TV (and counting!). You probably know the support of a staff made that possible.

Answer: you did not know that, until you heard this episode of The Cracked Podcast! Alex Schmidt is joined by the multitalented Jessie Gaskell and Mike Sweeney: comedians, writers for ‘Conan’, and hosts of ‘Inside Conan: An Important Hollywood Podcast’. They’ll dive into how they got started, how late night shows function day to day, and surprising stuff from behind the scenes that you’d never know from watching at home. Plus: stick around and click through for a slew of insanely funny characters, sketches, and more that make this one of our funniest footNOTES sections in Cracked Podcast history.
