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.

Dangerously Funny

Conan, you are a legend and I hope to meet you one day.

I think at least a couple of thousand people think I have mental issues as they see me laughing to myself in public while I listen to your podcast.

Other times, I listen to this during exercise. I’m always at risk of dropping the weights on myself from laughing too hard, but it’s a risk I’m willing to take. So far - no injuries.

If I do pass away from laughing too hard or being distracted by the podcast, please do chip in with the burial fees or give me a shout out so we’re even 😬

Please keep these up!

Can’t live without it

I listen to this religiously, and with some episodes, over and over again. I, too, would like to be Conan’s friend.
