Conan O'Brien has to be one the funniest comedians & late-night TV talents around, using comedy not against others but towards himself. The goofy and absurd commentary is hilarious, making many remotes and segments from Conan on TBS so loved and re-watched.
Playing the part of the fool and making situations lighter and funnier is what makes it so easy to laugh at these time and time again. Nowadays he works on his podcast, Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend, talking with comedians, actors, and more. Below are ten of my favorite segments, watch them because they're awesome, the end.
