Watch Parks and Rec’s Aubrey Plaza prove her emotional acting range

If you're anything like me, you have a giant crush on Aubrey Plaza, she of Parks and Recreation fame. If you're a lot like me -- slightly disturbed -- you feel a tingle every time Plaza's character April emasculates her husband Andy (Chris Pratt) on the show. Regardless of where...

Watch Baron Vaughn make his “Conan” stand-up debut

Comedian Baron Vaughn made his Conan debut last night with a set that matched his animated delivery with equally wacky premises. The bi-racial comic dishes on his wish to have been in a famous plane crash, all the things he would prefer to have instead of his absent father, and...

I probably don’t need to tell you how much it meant for a comic to get called over to the couch on Johnny Carson’s The Tonight Show. A quick tête-à-tête with Johnny could be a comedian’s big break, so they took it wicked seriously. And, as it turns out, some take...

Watch Louis C.K. give a valuable lesson on saving a dog’s life

Last night, Louis C.K. stopped by Conan for a (thankfully) lengthy desk-side chat. The two funny gingers covered a lot of ground-- how awesome C.K.'s show Louie is, why Louis is shocked there isn't more murder in the world (especially at Disneyland); and perhaps most noteworthy,...

Being a big fan of Jimmy Pardo's work and helping bring his Never Not Funny Podcast to Chicago, I was really looking forward to this interview. I call Pardo while he’s driving to Conan, where he’s the opening act each night. He's anxious to get right to the questions. When...

Comedian and musician Charlyne Yi will join the cast of House as a regular, working under Dr. Hugh Laurie. One can only wonder if the Paper Heart star will get to be just as quirky as she is elsewhere-- like in this 'impromptu' performance of her song "Coyote" on...

Brian Posehn talks weed, apocalypse and “stripping clubs” on “Conan” (Video)

My first encounter with Brian Posehn was on Just Shoot Me!, where the bespectacled comic actor played a lumbering and slow mail clerk named Kevin. Man, was that the perfect role for him. Since then, though, he’s appeared regularly on The Sarah Silverman Program, Reno 911! and...
