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." Watch more from the interview below:

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.

Rob Corddry Is Convinced His Daughter Is a Witch

Here's a clip from Rob Corddry's visit to last night's Conan, where he talks about his eight-year-old daughter who he's pretty sure is a witch: "She's convinced that she's a witch. She gets very…witchy." Watch more from Corddry's interview below:

Will Ferrell Is Tired of Answering Personal Questions About His Bird

Here's a clip from Will Ferrell's visit to last night's Conan, where O'Brien overwhelms him with tons of personal, invasive questions about Professor Feathers, who is already uncomfortable with being forced to be on national television. It's really unfortunate that even a seasoned talk show host like Conan wouldn't have the decency to know that celebrities deserve their privacy and some topics are strictly off-limits.

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 Speaks with Indiana's Religious Freedom Czar Don Beederman

Indiana has been making headlines for the awful discriminatory "religious freedom" bill they passed last week, so during last night's Conan, O'Brien reached out to Indiana's very own self-appointed religious freedom czar Don Beederman for more context. Beederman has conducted extensive, hands-on research on homosexuals, so you can rest assured he knows what he's talking about.

James Corden Talks About His New 'Late Late Show' Job on 'Conan'

The Late Late Show's new host James Corden was a guest on last night's Conan, where he told O'Brien about how nervous he is about the gig, which he describes as "just a quest to not throw up on your own clothes." Watch more from Corden'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.

Ricky Gervais Played Some Pranks at His Mother's Funeral

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:

Longtime 'Conan' Writer Brian Stack Is Headed to 'Late Show with Stephen Colbert'

Well, we've got some sad news and some amazing news. The sad news is that longtime Conan writer Brian Stack announced on Twitter that today is his final show with O'Brien after eighteen years. But don't worry, because the amazing news is super amazing: Stack is leaving his post at Conan to move back to New York, where he's accepted a writing staff position at Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Stack and Colbert both got their start at Second City in Chicago, so while it's sad to see Stack move on from Conan, this news guarantees that the new Late Show will be full of the wonderful [...]

Will Forte Makes His Glorious Return to 'Conan' as Ted Turner

Will Forte was a guest on last night's Conan, which meant that TBS founder Ted Turner was due to show up for another visit with his "orange seahorse" employee. Turner was visibly upset with O'Brien's recent trip to Cuba and accused him of turning what was once a wholesome company into a shameful outlet for Commie stoners. Watch some clips from Forte's interview below:
