Reggie Watts Sings a Beautiful Song About a Horse on 'Conan'

From last night's Conan, here's Reggie Watts (with some musical accompaniment by ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Coheed & Cambria's Travis Stever) singing a song called "I Once Knew a Horse" off his upcoming album Scarves & Cabbages. Not only is this song emotionally riveting, but it's also very educational if you don't know much about horses.

Triumph Wraps Up His World Cup Coverage by Humping a Dog From Every Country

Triumph wrapped up his three-part World Cup coverage last night the only way he really could – by humping every type of dog he could possibly find.

Triumph Pooped All Over the World Cup

Conan sent his old pal Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to Queens to watch the World Cup and talk to fans — presumably flights to Brazil were too expensive — and, unsurprisingly, he made fun of a whole bunch of people right to their faces, and it was great. Never change, Triumph.

Conan O'Brien Loves and Hates Being a Late Night Host

"It’s the yin-yang of it. My favorite part of the job is that we do one every day, and my least favorite part of the job is that we do one every day … It’s like magnets that are constantly attracted and repelled from each other. Going in every day is fantastic. You get this fresh shot, you can redefine your job every day. And then there are days when I’m talking to actors and they’re telling me about going to shoot a movie and then getting six weeks off. And I’m thinking, 'What am I doing? I’m chained to my desk.' You get this wanderlust. I want to get [...]

Kate McKinnon Talked About the Genesis of Her Bieber and Ellen Impressions and 'Dyke & Fats' on 'Conan'

SNL breakout start Kate McKinnon was on Conan last night, where she talked about how she developed both her wonderful Justin Bieber and Ellen impressions as well as the "Dyke & Fats" sketch she did with Aidy Bryant. The trick to the Bieber impression is pretending to be a puppy who just piddled on the rug, it turns out, just in case you want to try it yourself.

Conan O'Brien and Dave Franco Go on a Tinder Date

Here's a remote segment from last night's Conan, in which O'Brien teams up with Dave Franco to find a date on Tinder then meet up with them in their creepy "Tinder van." Gloria definitely missed the opportunity of a lifetime when she decided to turn down a meetup with Chip Whitley. Click through to check out some outtakes from the segment.

Joel McHale Officially Says He Isn't Interested in Hosting 'The Late Late Show' on 'Conan'

A picture tweeted by the wife of CBS President Les Moonves of the two of them with Joel McHale started a firestorm or rumors that the Soup/Community star would take over for Craig Ferguson when he steps down as host of The Late Late Show. CBS denied it, and now McHale has as well, saying "Who would do that? That is so much work, right?" to Conan. Let the wild speculation continue!

Conan O'Brien Hangs Out with a Bunch of Gamer Nerds at E3

Like last year, Conan O'Brien visited video gamer paradise E3 in Los Angeles recently and tried a bunch of new games like Sunset Overdrive, Forza 5, and Project Morpheus. Included of course is some German yelling and sexy tummy-rubbing.

Conan Reviews the New 'Super Smash Bros' in the Latest "Clueless Gamer" Segment

Conan O'Brien returned with a new "Clueless Gamer" segment yesterday, this time to review the highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. Wii U game. As usual, Conan has a little trouble figuring out the game but spends most of the segment calling out his "Assistant Nerd" Aaron Bleyaert for his shameful amount of gamer knowledge.

Conan O'Brien Kills a Woman and Finds Some Chemicals in 'Watch Dogs' in the Latest Edition of "Clueless Gamer"

Conan O'Brien continued his "Clueless Gamer" segment last night by reviewing the summer's biggest release Watchdogs, in which he got to do a lot of swimming and accidental killing before proactively finding the in-the-game graveyard for his character — so basically a typical Conan O'Brien gaming session.

Conan O'Brien Will Star in Syfy Drama 'Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda' Next Month

Here's a Conan web exclusive in which O'Brien makes an exciting announcement: On Saturday, August 2nd at 9pm, Syfy will be premiering a dramatic film starring Conan and produced by Roger Corman called Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda that will no doubt alter O'Brien's career path for years to come. Check out the announcement, along with the unveiling of the Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda billboard, in the video above.

Triumph Wonderfully Insults Four More Nationalities in Part 2 of His World Cup Coverage

On last night's Conan, Triumph returned with more of his World Cup coverage that involved him insulting Italians, the Brits, the Japanese, and folks from the Ivory Coast. Why is it that it's so funny to see a puppet insulting people's nationalities in a way that might be a little offensive if it was just a guy doing it? I don't know, and I don't care.

Ian Edwards on Releasing His Debut Standup Album Via Conan O'Brien's Team Coco Records

Team Coco Records launched last week with the release of Ian Edwards's debut standup album, 100% Half-Assed. On the album, Edwards skillfully mixes his candid, day-to-day observations with a sudden and surprising surrealism. He is a master of misdirection. Trying to keep ahead of Edwards's creative mind is an exercise in futility: as soon as you think you know where one joke is heading, he yanks the sails. It's not long before Edwards has capsized your expectations and left you floating in a sea of wit.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with Edwards about the pleasure of working with Team Coco and where we can expect to hear [...]

Jenny Slate Shares Her Unique Arnold Schwarzenegger Impression with Conan

Arnold Schwarzenegger impressions have pretty much become a cliché by now, but Jenny Slate found a way to make her take on the Governator uniquely her own — not just by making sure it's absolutely terrible, but by choosing the worst quote from Twins to go with it.
