To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, earlier today longtime Conan writer/performer Brian Stack tweeted out two classic late night clips featuring a young Amy Poehler as Andy Richter's little sister Stacy as well as O'Brien's visit to Ireland for a special episode of Late Night. No late night host has brought more pride to the Irish than O'Brien, who understands that real Irish Americans aren't as much known for green beer and once-a-year parties as they are for pale skin, an undying love for JFK, and crippling depression. With that in mind, here's some of O'Brien's finest Ireland-themed late night segments, from his journey to County Limerick to [...]
