Watch Four Years of 'Conan' Rehearsals in "The Scrapisode"

Conan aired a special "Scraps" episode last night consisting only of rehearsal clips from the show. Check out the intro above, then click through to watch a failed bit Conan really doesn't want to do called "Before Photoshop" ("Please don't make me do this bit…I've got children!") and another involving a baby-headed Conan singing "Creep."

UPDATE: You can now watch the full "Scrapisode" below:

Cameron Esposito Bravely Advocates for Straight People on 'Conan'

Cameron Esposito did a standup set on Conan last night and announced that she's an ally and advocate for straight people everywhere. She then made sure to create a safe space for all and looked back on her time as a party planning committee member to perfectly illustrate why we should celebrate our many differences instead of fight over them.

'Conan' Prop Master Bill Tull Is Back with Some Budget Summer Tips

Conan's no-nonsense prop master Bill Tull returned to offer some financially friendly summer tips last night, including a hassle-free recipe for a delicious tropical drink and the cheapest way to get the full Disneyland experience.

Watch Conan O'Brien, Andy Richter, and Larry King Enjoy a Pot Brownie

Here's a clip from Conan with guest Larry King, who admits to O'Brien that he used to smoke weed (with his doctor, of course) but had to stop after quitting cigarettes. O'Brien jumps on the opportunity to bring King back through the magic of pot brownies, and it works much faster than expected.

Watch Conan's Incredibly Violent Scene from 'Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda'

While Conan recently announced that he'd be "starring" in the upcoming Syfy movie Sharktopus VS. Pteracuda, it looks like this ridiculous and insanely violent scene is the only one he's actually in. Which is probably for the best — I'm not sure anyone could take a full 90 minutes of that character. I'm sure all of the other characters are more fleshed out and well rounded. We'll find out when it airs on Syfy at 9pm on August 2nd.

Pierce Brosnan Tells Conan About Working with Robin Williams on 'Mrs. Doubtfire'

On last night's Conan, Pierce Brosnan looked back on his time working with Robin Williams in 1993's Mrs. Doubtfire and told a story about the "beautiful" shrimp choking scene that made the Heimlich maneuver famous. Brosnan is too classy to get into the dirty details, but his attempt at impersonating Williams's off-camera wisecracks is certainly admirable.

Kumail Nanjiani Tells Conan About a 'Silicon Valley' Scene That Disappointed His Mother

Meltdown hosts Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani paid a visit to Conan last night, and Nanjiani told a story about nearly winning his hard-to-impress mother over through his work on HBO's Silicon Valley only to completely disappoint her again with an image of him making love to the symbol of American freedom.

Watch Conan O'Brien's Heartfelt Tribute to Robin Williams

Conan O'Brien was nearly finished taping last night's episode of Conan when news broke of Robin Williams's tragic death, but the late night host still took the time to film a brief tribute to the late comedian. It's a short clip but O'Brien clearly is talking from the heart, and he ends the episode with "Good night, and God bless Robin Williams."

Inside 'Nathan For You' with Co-Creator Michael Koman

Michael Koman is the co-creator of two of the best comedies on TV — Nathan For You and Eagleheart – and he's about to add a third to his roster. Koman is gearing up for production on an yet-to-be-titled Adult Swim sitcom that pairs Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Jack McBrayer, which Koman co-created with Robert Smigel and David Feldman. After spending seven years on the writing staff of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Koman left the late night world, and he's since become some sort of anti-Chuck Lorre, responsible for multiple TV shows that are some of the most original and funny things currently happening on TV. Nathan For [...]

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.

Nathan Fielder and Conan O'Brien Talk Instagram and Dumb Starbucks

Nathan Fielder was a guest on Conan last night, and when O'Brien asked him to explain his recent Instagram stunt he gave a pretty simple answer — he was just trying to give back to fans, but unfortunately his private activities were made known to the world. Click through to watch Fielder tell O'Brien about Dumb Starbucks and how it made him greedy: "In a way I let my guard down and the devil climbed inside me."

Watch Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien, and Seth Meyers Pay Tribute to Robin Williams

Here's a clip from last night's Tonight Show, in which Jimmy Fallon takes a few minutes to remember the great Robin Williams and do a quick impersonation of his hero. Click through to watch Conan O'Brien and Seth Meyers both take time out of their late night shows to salute Williams.

Chris Hardwick, Tig Notaro, and Andy Daly Have a Fascinating Discussion About Bread

If you ever wanted to enjoy Chris Hardwick's show Talking Dead but would prefer to learn more about delicious carb-based goodies instead of a zombie show you don't watch, Conan has now made that happen. Sadly most television shows don't have the courage required to discuss this hard-hitting topic, but with some help from Tig Notaro and Andy Daly, Hardwick gives bread the spotlight it so richly deserves.

Conan O'Brien and Brian Stack Want to Make "Anon" a Cool Word Again

Here's a short and sweet clip from last night's Conan, in which O'Brien and writer Brian Stack state their case for why the word "anon" deserves a glorious comeback. It does sound a lot classier than "turducken."
