You’ll be shocked who Conan O’Brien says is his least favorite guest

Conan O’Brien has interviewed hundreds of celebrities over the last 30 years, but who was his least favorite? That is what Ed Sheeran wanted to know when they were chatting on the Conan Needs a Friend podcast.

“It was someone from a long time ago. It was when we were first starting the show. We had, I mean, this amazing singer, actress Eartha Kitt was on the show. A lot of people know her from the 1960s Batman. She played Catwoman a little bit,” he said. “She was very tough to talk to. And I was brand new. And so I put most of it on myself. But, I would say things like, ‘Oh, you dated James Dean back in 1954.’ And, she would say, ‘Well, so what? Why are you asking me?'”

And that is when Sheeran said that it is more like a statement than a question. And now Sheeran is his least favorite guest.

Conan was joking about Sheeran, but he got serious and hinted he was not a fan of interviewing the cast from The WB shows, who were young and pompous. I am assuming he is talking about James Van Der Beek, who has admitted he was douche during his Dawson’s Creek days.

Who are Conan’s favorite guests? He loved talking to the late Norm MacDonald and Will Ferrell. He enjoys the Anchorman because you never know what he is going to bring with him, and you just have to go with it.

It is real moments like the ones we saw between Conan and Sheeran that really makes me miss him having a talk show. None of the Strike Force Five are as good as him when it comes to interviewing. Seth Meyers comes the closest, but he is still no Conan.

Ed Sheeran suffered shrinkage while making Autumn Variations

Ed Sheeran went live with Conan O’Brien on the podcast Conan Needs a Friend, and he talked about making his new album Autumn Variations.

Believe it or not. Sheeran was working on Autumn Variations when he took a break from recording it to write the songs that went on Subtract, which was released in May.

It is not that hard to believe when you find out that the singer spends his weekdays, 10a-5p, in the studio writing new music. All he hopes for is that he can write one good song a month because, after a year, he has an album.

So, he spent a lot of time writing songs about his friends for his latest record, which comes out on the 29th. And he wrote it by the English sea.

Back in December, the director decided that he should film some videos by the sea with the waves crashing on him. The director offered to do it in Los Angeles, but Sheeran said I can do it in England.

That turned out to be a huge mistake. Because he told Conan, “I lost a couple of inches for a couple of days.”

Some might say he suffered for his art. But I say he suffered for his bravado. ‘

With the number of songs he writes a day, he says two to three; I am sure he wrote one about his shrinking dick. However, I don’t think we will ever hear it. But we should.

I sincerely hope that one day, he decides to release a record with all of the joke songs he has penned. You know that he has written several of those.

Harrison Ford goes all Darth Vader to Conan O’Brien
July 6th, 2023 under Conan O'Brien, Harrison Ford. [ Comments: none ]

Harrison Ford was on Conan O’Brien’s podcast Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend. However, what I think the former late night host really needs is a hug after that interview.

Ford has a very dry sense of humor, so dry deserts are jealous. And most talk show hosts can’t play along with him. But Conan is the one who can. So the two of them played off each other as the actor ripped Conan a new one.

I hope Conan has his therapist on speed dial because he is going to need a Shrinking session after that chat.

And I just want to say I agree with Ford. I don’t know why Conan is still not on television. He was the best host in late night. And we miss him. Well, at least I do.

Although, he is a lot more free to be himself on the podcast. So there is that.

Conan O’Brien gets beat up by a little boy!!!
May 17th, 2023 under Conan O'Brien. [ Comments: none ]

Conan O’Brien traveled the world with Conan Without Borders on TBS. But that series ended along with his hysterical late night talk show. However, he decided he still wants to travel, so he is going to do it with Max.

With his old show, he would go to places where people don’t normally vacation, like Cuba, Armenia, Greenland, and the North Korean border. So with Conan O’Brien Must Go, he is going to visit his “friends” from his podcast Conan Needs a Friend. He says, “My fans around the globe never asked me to visit them, so I did.”

The 4-episode event is currently in production, so we are not sure who he is going to and where they live. But let’s hope he doesn’t start a war.

Because even though he tells Nina Rosenstein, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, that he is a national treasure, for some reason, not everyone gets his sense of humor. And I can see Norwegians not laughing with the tall white, redhead.

Seriously, the world has been missing Conan’s take on the different cultures around the globe. So I can’t wait to watch his destination show that is destined to be educational in a way that isn’t meant to be educational.

The Forgetting Sarah Marshall dumping scene was based on a true Jason Segel story
February 21st, 2023 under Conan O'Brien, Jason Segel. [ Comments: none ]

Do you know that scene where Jason Segel is naked and gets dumped by his girlfriend in Forgetting Sarah Marshall? Well, that really happened to Jason Segel.

Segel sat down with Conan O’Brien for his podcast Conan Needs a Friend and told him the real story.

The Shrinking star was dating someone, and things were going really well. But she wound up going away for a while. So when she got back, she asked if she could stop by his place.

Well, Segel thought he was going to get laid, so he got naked and posed for her. When she walked in, she told him that they needed to talk. And we all know what that means.

So he sat there naked on his couch as she was dumping him. And he is thinking this would be a great story for a movie. And it is!

That was not the only thing he was thinking. He also thought he needed to put on some clothes. So he went into his bedroom and spent the next 25 minutes trying on different outfits before settling on a button-up blue shirt and khaki pants. Why? Because he was then able to tell her, “I am wearing your favorite outfit.”

As brilliant as that scene would’ve been, it was cut for time.

Now that you know Segel’s worst breakup story, what is yours?
