Watch Conan O'Brien's 'American Hustle'-Style Hair Prep

Here's a look at the very American Hustle-style hair prep technique Conan used before hosting the MTV Movie Awards over the weekend, which may have almost made him late but definitely seems to be an impressive way to cover up his bald patch.

Conan O'Brien Is Doing a Week of Shows from Comic-Con in 2015

Conan O'Brien is set to become the first late night host to do a week of shows from Comic-Con. The TBS host plans to broadcast his shows from July 8 to July 12, 2015 (yes, that's really far away) from San Diego's Spreckels Theater during the massive annual comic book convention, Deadline reports. O'Brien recently took his show to Dallas last week coinciding with the NCAA championship.

Conan Becomes a Real Texas Deputy

Last night, Conan kicked off his week of shows in Dallas by stepping into some cowboy boots and training to become a real Texas deputy. Apparently becoming a deputy in Texas just involves learning when to shoot teenage kung fu ruffians on a projector screen using video shot in the early 80s. That's justice, Texas style.

Hannibal Buress Explains His Comedy Central Show Snafu on 'Conan'

After telling Conan about the time he drunkenly met Scarlett Johansson, Hannibal Buress went on to give the perfect explanation why he tweeted out to his followers earlier this month that Comedy Central had picked up his show Unemployable, even though they have yet to do so: "I didn't make it up, I just kinda put my dreams out into the world." Hopefully after the show actually gets picked up, Buress's technique of tweeting something into existence will be an inspiration to many comedians out there hoping to get a show of their own.

Watch Dan Soder Do Standup on 'Conan'

Watch Tig Notaro Do Standup on 'Conan'

Conan O'Brien kicked off his week of shows in Dallas last night, and the lovely Tig Notaro was on hand to deliver a five-minute standup set that covers everything from firetrucks and gross jokes about swimming with diarrhea to making her boobs so mad at her that they got together and conspired to kill her in retaliation.

Watch Todd Barry Do Standup on 'Conan'

Todd Barry — who just released a new special via Louis C.K.'s website — did some standup on Conan last night, covering everything from cross-country red-eye flights to his three categories for all foods to his own First Annual Todd Barry Best Walgreens Awards, which he's not taking back from that store in Chicago just because of some police brutality.

16 of Conan O'Brien's Most Memorable Remote Segments

Since Conan O'Brien made his late-night host debut on Late Night in 1993, he's never shied away from taking his work out of the studio and onto the streets, whether that be New York City during his NBC days, the Los Angeles area during his current run on TBS, and beyond — from small town America to across the pond. O'Brien has led countless unforgettable remote segments over the past 20 years, and after his recent weeklong visit to Dallas and turn hosting the MTV Movie Awards this past weekend, here's a look at some of his best and most ridiculous out-of-studio visits from the past two [...]

Watch Kumail Nanjiani and Conan O'Brien Play a Game of "Tweet or Literature"

Conan Trains to Be a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant

Despite only having level 5 quality skin, Conan O'Brien continued his comprehensive Dallas coverage last night by teaming up with a real Mary Kay beauty consultant and learning how to sell bronzer, lipstick, and overpriced hairbrushes to women. Since there's makeup and Conan involved, it doesn't take long until this segment gets very frightening.
