Tracy Morgan Tells Conan Why He Got Kicked Out of Prince's House

Ahead of the premiere of his Comedy Central special this weekend, Tracy Morgan told Conan all about the time he — more specifically, his insane and now retired alter ego Chico Divine — had the honor of getting kicked out of Prince's house.

Pete Holmes Shares Some Delirious 4am Observations

Pete Holmes gets some crazy ideas — or delirious observational humor, really — in the middle of the night, and he shared a few of them on last night's Pete Holmes Show. Apparently Holmes likes to crack himself up a lot at four in the morning.

Watch Kumail Nanjiani and Conan O'Brien Play a Game of "Tweet or Literature"

Here's a clip from Kumail Nanjiani's visit with Conan last night, where he introduces his new short but genius (and also somewhat depressing) game "Tweet or Literature," which Conan passes with flying colors.

Rob Riggle and Pete Holmes Compare the Worlds of Standup and Improv

If you're looking to get into comedy but not sure whether you'd like to start as a standup or improv performer, take a look at Rob Riggle's careful breakdown on The Pete Holmes Show of the supportive, team-oriented experience he had in improv starting out versus when he first tried standup, a world he describes as "the land of the broken toys."

Watch Tig Notaro Do Standup on 'Conan'

Conan O'Brien kicked off his week of shows in Dallas last night, and the lovely Tig Notaro was on hand to deliver a five-minute standup set that covers everything from firetrucks and gross jokes about swimming with diarrhea to making her boobs so mad at her that they got together and conspired to kill her in retaliation.

'Conan' Prop Master Bill Tull Offers Some Money-Saving Easter Tips

We're still in a tough economy for many families to afford all the trappings of Easter, but Conan's no-nonsense prop master Bill Tull is here to save the day with more frugal tips so you can enjoy the Lord's resurrection without breaking the bank.

Watch Dan Soder Do Standup on 'Conan'

Here's Dan Soder's standup set from last night's Conan, which covers lost cell phones, Soder's 86-year-old grandmother, his "creepily deep" voice, and the difference between old people and babies reacting to today's technology.

Conan O'Brien Is Doing a Week of Shows from Comic-Con in 2015

Conan O'Brien is set to become the first late night host to do a week of shows from Comic-Con. The TBS host plans to broadcast his shows from July 8 to July 12, 2015 (yes, that's really far away) from San Diego's Spreckels Theater during the massive annual comic book convention, Deadline reports. O'Brien recently took his show to Dallas last week coinciding with the NCAA championship.

Conan Trains to Be a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant

Despite only having level 5 quality skin, Conan O'Brien continued his comprehensive Dallas coverage last night by teaming up with a real Mary Kay beauty consultant and learning how to sell bronzer, lipstick, and overpriced hairbrushes to women. Since there's makeup and Conan involved, it doesn't take long until this segment gets very frightening.

Hannibal Buress Explains His Comedy Central Show Snafu on 'Conan'

After telling Conan about the time he drunkenly met Scarlett Johansson, Hannibal Buress went on to give the perfect explanation why he tweeted out to his followers earlier this month that Comedy Central had picked up his show Unemployable, even though they have yet to do so: "I didn't make it up, I just kinda put my dreams out into the world." Hopefully after the show actually gets picked up, Buress's technique of tweeting something into existence will be an inspiration to many comedians out there hoping to get a show of their own.

Adam Scott Outs Pete Holmes as a Supernatural Racist

On last night's Pete Holmes Show, Adam Scott made Pete Holmes look like a fool for not knowing who Stephen Dorff is or knowing what the movie Blade is, other than "black vampire." In return, Holmes does little to help Scott after his Jim Jarmusch joke bombs with the audience.

Watch Conan O'Brien's 'American Hustle'-Style Hair Prep

Here's a look at the very American Hustle-style hair prep technique Conan used before hosting the MTV Movie Awards over the weekend, which may have almost made him late but definitely seems to be an impressive way to cover up his bald patch.

Deputy Conan Solves the Case of the Missing Boxcutter Blades

Here's part 2 of Conan O'Brien's recent Texan adventures as a Johnson County deputy. This time around there's a grand criminal mystery waiting for Conan's sleuth skills involving missing boxcutter blades, expired candy bars, and $600k worth of cocaine.

Conan Becomes a Real Texas Deputy

Last night, Conan kicked off his week of shows in Dallas by stepping into some cowboy boots and training to become a real Texas deputy. Apparently becoming a deputy in Texas just involves learning when to shoot teenage kung fu ruffians on a projector screen using video shot in the early 80s. That's justice, Texas style.
