It's been 10 years since then-SNL castmember Fred Armisen went on Conan O'Brien's show and debuted his impression of a dead fox decomposing in a time-lapse film. So much else has also decomposed since then!

Conan O'Brien Was The Funniest Part Of The 2021 Emmys

Last night, the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards were pretty disappointing. With the exception of a fantastic opening number and one good sketch, the show just wasn't all that entertaining, despite being hosted by Cedric the Entertainer. However, there was some impromptu comedy to be found in the form of one of late night's comedy staples goofing around on live television.Conan O'Brien was at the Emmys last night, and after he lost the award he was nominated for, he decided to have a little fun. And w...

Conan O'Brien: NBC Tried to Ban Norm Macdonald From My Show

"No one was better at stringing out a joke between its setup and its punch line. The purest instance of the skill might be his famous 'moth' routine..."

"... in which he took a lame stock joke ('A moth goes into a podiatrist’s office . . .') and, by delivery alone, built a three-minute meta-gag on top of it, working his audience all the way. We weren’t far into our interview when I realized I had made the rookie mistake of taking Macdonald’s deadbeat persona as his real world view. It was and wasn’t. Early on, he charmed me by noting, in an offhand way, that he’d needed glasses all his life but, after losing his first childhood pairs, stopped b...

The 5 Greatest Norm Macdonald Moments

Norm Macdonald has passed away. The beloved and undeniably distinctive comedian was 61 years old and recently lost his quiet battle to cancer. The fact that the man, known for his dry sense of humor and fearless approach to comedy, opted not to disclose his battle with cancer is very much in character. Macdonald once said this of battles with cancer:A draw for him, a loss for the rest of us here on Earth. There are few people I have ever found to be funnier than Macdonald. That dry delivery. The...

Daniel Radcliffe on ending up relatively OK, unlike many child stars

Conan O'Brien recently interviewed Daniel "Harry Potter" Radcliffe, who has turned out OK despite being the ultimate mass-culture child star. The "secret" is, frankly, that he never actually went to Hollywood and so was never subjected to its revolting pseudo-liberal predator-infested culture. — Read the rest

‘The Suicide Squad’ Actor Flula Borg on Playing a Supervillain Sex God for James Gunn [Interview]

Flula Borg walks into The Suicide Squad with swagger. With his blonde locks, the twirl of the javelin, and an air of pure confidence, Borg makes quite the entrance as a supervillain. Javelin is a comic book character, as Borg points out, we should know absolutely nothing about. There’s not much to know about him, except he was an Olympic athlete and died a few times in the pages of DC superhero stories. The comedian makes the most of his screen time in James Gunn‘s film. It’s a surprisingly piv...

"I always thought of my career that you could reflect on it through the decades by who comes up to you and says what. If it’s a 40-year-old woman, she’s gonna talk about Father of the Bride."

"If it’s a 40-year-old guy, he’s gonna talk about Three Amigos. If it’s a 55-year-old guy, he might talk about Ed Grimley. But definitely, if it was a 29-year-old stoner, he would mention Clifford. Because he’d seen it 18 times in a row high in his dorm room. I use the word 'stoner,' and it probably is not fair. I don’t think that you had to be stoned in your dorm to like Clifford, but I do think it’s like what Conan O’Brien once said about        — that it was on from 12:30 until 2, and he an...

’30 Rock’ Returns to Netflix Next Month – Here Are Six Episodes to Revisit

It’s been a few years since 30 Rock was available on Netflix. Since then, it’s been kicking around Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Peacock. But let’s be honest, Netflix is where you want this series to be. It’s the streaming service everyone has, and since it was situated in their library for so long, it almost feels wrong to watch the antics of Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski), Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan), and Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) anywhere else. In honor of the show’s triump...
