Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend

Publisher: Team Coco

User Rating: 3.8/5

Description

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.

Nicholas Quah - Vulture - Jan 10, 2019

"O’Brien is a really good fit for the medium, as it turns out. His weirdness translates well to the casual intimacy that’s come to define the podcast as a platform for performance, and his default stance of efficient self-deprecation makes the show feel accessible in ways that other comedy podcasts, fronted by needier ids, may not. It also helps that O’Brien is great at the performance of longer-form interviews, effectively balancing the impulse of filling the room with being genuinely curious, and there’s also a lot of charm to be found in the podcast, particularly in the core O’Brien-Movsesian-Gourley workplace dynamic, which goes a long way to providing listeners with a sheen of habitual comfort."

"Robe Lowe was awesome. Gawd. The stories he have with Old Hollywood always has my ears. Laugh with the impressions and stay for the stories. Great episode."

"This episode was ok and a good pastime. Didn’t really laugh that much. I did appreciate Conan acknowledging the protest before the interview began. "
