Conan O'Brien Discovers His Entire Staff Wants Jordan Schlansky Fired

During last night's Conan, O'Brien debuted a brand new remote segment filmed in the Conaco offices in which he visits some of his production staff to give them a yearly performance review. While Conan's ultimate goal is to fire three employees, there's one Conaco worker who everyone seems to want to go away: non-essential associate producer and coffee snob Jordan Schlansky.

Conan O'Brien Is Doing a Week of Shows from Comic-Con This Summer

During last night's Conan, O'Brien revealed some big news: His show is officially headed to San Diego to tape a week of shows at Comic-Con in July.

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.

Amy Schumer Looks Back on Her Awkward Puberty on 'Conan'

Amy Schumer was a guest on last night's Conan, where she talked about her Entertainment Weekly cover, how she's feeling about hosting the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday, and her very awkwardly timed puberty as a kid, which made her look like a "jack-o-lantern with tits."

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 James Corden Pay Tribute to David Letterman

While they both aired new episodes last night, late night hosts Conan O'Brien and James Corden dedicated moments of their shows to David Letterman, who made his Late Show farewell after 33 years as a television host. O'Brien devoted a portion of his monologue to Dave's influence on his own comedy career and even interrupted his interview with Patton Oswalt at 11:35pm to urge viewers to switch over to CBS, while Corden dedicated several moments to Letterman during The Late Late Show, including a musical opening with Sting, Letterman-style Top Ten list, and special watermelon sign-off.

T.J. Miller Gives Conan O'Brien a Crash Course in Negging

Silicon Valley's T.J. Miller stopped by last night's Conan, where he taught O'Brien how to properly neg someone to win their love and affection, getting in a particularly amazing insult about Conan's hair in the process. Watch more from Miller's interview below.

Angela Kinsey's Grandmother Isn't a Fan of Her TV Shows

Here's a clip from Angela Kinsey's visit to last night's Conan, where she tells O'Brien all about her harshest critic, who happens to be her Southern grandmother Lena May. Whether it's Kinsey's work on The Office (Too vulgar!), her new TBS show (What's TBS?), or her time as a Conan, Lena May thinks Angela's comedy career is just a little too vulgar to bother watching. Check out another clip from Kinsey's interview below:

Tig Notaro Learns About Goldilocks for the First Time on 'Conan'

To promote their new Showtime documentary Knock Knock, It's Tig Notaro, Jon Dore and Tig Notaro stopped by Conan last night for a fun storytelling session. Notaro is absolutely captivated by Dore's tale of a little girl named Goldilocks, but she still has plenty of questions about the logic of the story. Watch more from the interview below:

Brian Stack Visits Conan O'Brien as The Interrupter One Last Time

After 18 years as a Conan writer and performer, Brian Stack made his final appearance during last night's show. "He's made enormous contributions to our show," O'Brien said before playing a collection of Stack clips from past and present. "I say this with all seriousness — he's been absolutely brilliant." After the video, Stack brought back a very special character for one more round of annoying interruptions. Technically Stack wasn't allowed to do it, but sometimes rules are meant to be broken: "It's my last show, so fuck it."

Conan O'Brien Reviews 'The Witcher: Wild Hunt' for "Clueless Gamer"

Conan O'Brien and Aaron Bleyaert returned with a brand new edition of "Clueless Gamer" last night, this time to review the upcoming game The Witcher: Wild Hunt. Conan isn't very interested in fighting monsters or learning about the game this time, and his personal goal for this gaming session is simple: "I want an erotic adventure." Thankfully he gets that by the end of the review — and a chicken sandwich, too.

Zach Woods, Andy Richter, and Conan O'Brien Play "Give Me Back My Son"

During his visit to last night's Conan, Zach Woods taught O'Brien and Andy Richter about a great improv game he's played to warm up before shows called "Give Me Back My Son" based off Mel Gibson's amazing rage scene in Ransom. It's hard to say who won here, but all three men do a valiant job desperately screaming at each other. Watch some more clips from Woods's interview below:

Eric Andre Announces 'The Eric Andre Show's Season 4 Renewal on 'Conan'

Eric Andre made a quick appearance during last night's Conan to make a very special announcement: The Eric Andre Show is returning to Adult Swim for a fourth season. No word yet on when the season will air, but Andre shared the news through the classic "bloody man with candy-covered underwear falls out of a piñata" method.

During last night's Conan, guest Ricky Gervais proved that he comes from a funny family when he looked back on his mother's funeral, which he and his older brother filled with pranks to cheer up their relatives. Watch another clip from the interview below:
