Conan O'Brien Gets Trapped with Jordan Schlansky in Escape Room LA

Here's the latest Conan remote segment featuring Conan O'Brien and his no-nonsense producer Jordan Schlansky, who take a trip to Escape Room LA and get trapped together in the 1940s-set "Detective" room. O'Brien might not be the best at solving all the intricate puzzles and clues inside, but he's definitely good at getting into his '40s jewel thief detective character. Jordan, as usual, is having none of Conan's nonsense.

Conan O'Brien Tells Jon Stewart About His Trip to Cuba

Conan O'Brien visited The Daily Show last night to talk about next week's Conan special in Cuba, and it turns out that O'Brien and his crew almost didn't make it into the country and got stuck in a tiny building watching Gilmore Girls in Spanish. Thanks to some luck and friendly Canadians, the whole trip worked out just fine. The Daily Show also dedicated its Moment of Zen to O'Brien in a throwback clip of him on The Jon Stewart Show in 1994:

Conan O'Brien and Steven Yeun Have a Naked and Relaxing Korean Spa Date

Here's a clip from last night's Conan, in which O'Brien meets up with The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun at a traditional Korean spa for some rest, relaxation, naked sauna sessions, and full body scrub. O'Brien might have lost most of his skin in the process, but hopefully it was worth it for the Cocoa Puffs.

Conan O'Brien Discovers His Love to Kill with Sterling Archer

During last night's show, Conan O'Brien's animated guest Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) insisted that O'Brien meet him outside for their interview, only to take him on a violent Archer-style high-speed car chase with some Russian mobsters that brings out a completely new side of O'Brien: "I just killed a guy! That's a sexual thrill."

The 'Conan' Crew Delivers a Heartfelt Eulogy for Larry the Pencil Sharpener

A senseless and tragic loss took place during last night's Conan when O'Brien insisted that crew member Larry quickly sharpen a pencil — a demand that ultimately led to Larry's death. Thankfully the Conan crew were able to throw together a fitting tribute to their most dedicated coworker. Rest in peace, Larry.

Conan O'Brien Tries to Improve UC Irvine's School Mascot

Here's a brand new remote segment from last night's Conan, where O'Brien heads to UC Irvine to meet its not very threatening school mascot Peter the Anteater and make some new mascot suggestions of his own. Hopefully we'll see the new Conan/tiger/chicken/ruler of the sea mascot at next year's March Madness.

Conan O'Brien and Howard Stern Talk Depression, Late Night, and 'SNL'

To promote his upcoming Conan special from Cuba, Conan O'Brien stopped by The Howard Stern Show this morning, and the result is a lengthy and fantastic interview that covers O'Brien's entire career, from his first days in college to writing for SNL and The Simpsons all the way to his choice to rebuild his new TBS show Conan rather than continue the bits he made famous during his NBC years. O'Brien also opened up about his struggles with depression — here's a particularly great quote about his early days on NBC late night:

This is an absolute true story: It was the first couple weeks of the Late [...]

Watch a Special Super Bowl Edition of "Clueless Gamer" with Conan O'Brien

For the latest installment of Conan's "Clueless Gamer" on the upcoming Mortal Kombat X, O'Brien decided to make it even more competitive by traveling down to Phoenix to review the game with the Seattle Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch and the New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski. Near the end, the guys teach O'Brien how to create his very own touchdown dance, which involves saying "Farewell, chumps!" and rocking the football to sleep.

Here's a Bunch of Old "Satellite TV" Sketches from 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien'

Late Night with Conan O'Brien was home to countless weird and wonderful sketches during its run on NBC from 1993-2009, and over the past week a YouTube user has been uploading old clips of the recurring "Satellite TV" segment, in which O'Brien would share with the audience some of the stranger channels picked up by 30 Rockefeller's giant satellite dish. Comfort your pre-Thanksgiving dread with the above clip from the "Peanut Suicide Channel," then click through to watch "Potato Judge Channel," "Camp Michael McDonald Channel," and more.

Conan O'Brien Reviews 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare'

Conan O'Brien returned for a brand new installment of "Clueless Gamer" last night with his gaming buddy Aaron Bleyaert, this time to review the latest Call of Duty game Advanced Warfare featuring a computer animated Kevin Spacey with "the eyes of a carp that's been in the refrigerator for three days." As usual, Conan isn't the most skilled gamer in the world, which leads to plenty of entertaining moments: "What's the 'go back home and go to law school' button?"

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with These Classic Conan O'Brien Clips

To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, earlier today longtime Conan writer/performer Brian Stack tweeted out two classic late night clips featuring a young Amy Poehler as Andy Richter's little sister Stacy as well as O'Brien's visit to Ireland for a special episode of Late Night. No late night host has brought more pride to the Irish than O'Brien, who understands that real Irish Americans aren't as much known for green beer and once-a-year parties as they are for pale skin, an undying love for JFK, and crippling depression. With that in mind, here's some of O'Brien's finest Ireland-themed late night segments, from his journey to County Limerick to [...]

Billy Eichner Introduces Conan O'Brien to the World of Grindr

Having already mastered the world of Tinder, last night Conan O'Brien decided to give Grindr a try with the invaluable help of Billy Eichner, who helps O'Brien set up the best Grindr profile possible ("Frecklefucker" is a pretty catchy name) and connect Conan with his very first man date.

Conan O'Brien Visits the Taco Bell Test Kitchens

Conan O'Brien recently decided to use his power and influence to make some dreams come true for Conan IT guy and Taco Bell superfan Chris Hayes by taking him on an exclusive trip to the Taco Bell headquarters and test kitchens. Not only do they learn about the rich history of Taco Bell in the Taco Bell museum and visit the employees' "sensory panel," but they get to hang out in the "innovation kitchen" and create their very own Taco Bell menu items — O'Brien creates two instant classics with the "La Cone-A" and the "O'Taco."

Conan O'Brien Reviews 'Assassin's Creed: Unity' for "Clueless Gamer"

It's been a week since Conan O'Brien reviewed Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, but during last night's Conan the "Clueless Gamer" segment returned, this time with a sneak peek of the brand new game Assassin's Creed: Unity. In only a few minutes, O'Brien gets pretty skilled at stealing fruit, staring at paintings, jumping into piles of hay, and collecting receipts: "In the true spirit of French spoken with a British accent, I give this a 'Blimey, guv'nor!'"
