After 25 years at the Late Night desk, Conan realized that the only people at his holiday party are the men and women who work for him.

Over the years and despite thousands of interviews, Conan has never made a real and lasting friendship with any of his celebrity guests. So, he started a podcast to do just that.

Deeper, unboundedly playful, and free from FCC regulations, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend is a weekly opportunity for Conan to hang out with the people he enjoys most and perhaps find some real friendship along the way.

Conan

Is the best talkshow host/comedian ever!!

Oh, the stars

I first wanted to give it 5 stars. But then I saw everyone’s done it, and because I want to be AN INDIVIDUAL, I figured I’ll go for 4 or 3. But then again, I want to be a person of integrity, definitely don’t want to be an Adam, so I guess it’s 5 after all.

Anyways, love the spiritual content. It’s hard to combine it with first class humor. (And when I say “first class” I think all who listen to Conan know what I’m talking about.) Sona is constantly going “oh, God” while Conan sticks with his “Jesus”. As a person of faith I truly appreciate that you bring up the most important things in life.

If you need to share these stars, I think it’s fair to say Sona gets an extra star for putting up with Conan, Matt gets his for being such a calming personality. Lying Adam gets his star after he has completed his moral rehab, and Conan, ok, you can have yours already, for valiant effort.

Thank you taking a stand Conan

We can’t afford to stay silent before this election. Thank you for stating clearly which side you’re on in this insane election, dispite of what I’m sure are many irate listeners and annoyed corporate sponsors.
