'Conan' Is Selling Nick Offerman's Wood Emojis for Charity

Since airing a silly sketch about Nick Offerman's handcrafted wood emojis last month, the Conan crew got flooded with requests for the real thing and decided to sell 100 of them for charity. Since the first edition of wood emojis sold out in just 19 minutes, last night O'Brien announced that they're selling more emojis, with all proceeds going to the Children's Defense Fund. Currently, the emojis' Tilt page already has almost 1000 more buyers who want their own 2-inch thick hunk of pine.

'Conan' Visits a Conscientious Tofurkey Farm

If you want to celebrate Thanksgiving by opting for tofurkey instead of the real thing, Conan visited McClellan Farms recently, and no one makes a more ethically acceptable tofurkey product than them. So before you choose your tofurkey brand this holiday season, please consider McClellan, because it's not humane tofurkey unless it's breastfed three times a day.

Mindy Kaling was a guest on last night's Conan, where she looked back on a girls' night she had with O'Brien's wife when he was out of town on a camping trip.

Buy Some of Nick Offerman's Handcrafted Wood Emojis

Have you ever wanted to send a loved one an emoji message but wished it could have the personal handcrafted touch of Nick Offerman? For the reasonable price of $29.99 per emoji, that's now a possibility thanks to Conan and Nick Offerman's Handcrafted Wood Emojis — because if it's not a solid oak emoji sculpted by the hands of Nick Offerman, it's just not as meaningful.

Santa Shares Some Disturbing Secrets on 'Conan'

Most people know all about Secret Santa, but during last night's Conan, the audience also got an exclusive look at some of Santa's secrets.

Comedy and Comic Books with Andrés du Bouchet

If you listen closely to the lead track of Andrés du Bouchet’s new album, 20-Sided Guy, you’ll likely pick out my obnoxious cackle. I was lucky enough to be present at the RIOT LA comedy fest this past January where du Bouchet recorded the track “To Victory!” which is a monologue delivered in character as a medieval general and which my friends have nearly gotten sick of hearing me talk about. Du Bouchet recorded all 16 tracks on the new album at different venues, adding yet another layer to the multi-faceted nature of his work, his high-concept, one-man-show-esque character pieces. This approach to comedy has also served du Bouchet [...]

Conan O'Brien Drags Producer Jordan Schlansky Along to a Coffee Tasting

Conan O'Brien recently made a trip to Intelligentsia Coffee in Los Angeles to learn more about the world of coffee, and he decided to bring self-proclaimed coffee expert, Conan producer, and emotionless robot in disguise Jordan Schlansky along for the ride. Schlansky doesn't hold back about expressing his lack of respect for the American coffee scene, but that doesn't stop O'Brien from enjoying what is otherwise a wonderful learning experience.
