The reviews for Conan O’Brien’s first few shows at the helm of The Tonight Show have been fairly positive. However, only time will tell if Conan’s version of the late night monster will go down as one of the most relevant and influential shows in television history. Either way, Bill Burr will always be remembered as the first comedian to perform on the show, just like George Carlin is remembered as the first guest host of Saturday Night Live.

Check Burr out night at 11:35 pm EST. For now, enjoy a recent interview we did with Burr as part of Punchline Magazine‘s web series A Tight Five.
