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.

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 [...]

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."

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.

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.

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 [...]
