Don't Be Alone with Jay Kogen : Conan O’Brien Explains That Jay Needs to Just Shut Up


Conan O’Brien and Jay discuss the neurotic need to constantly make jokes at the peril of personal relationships and true communication.  They also talk about their kids and wives putting up with them, their long friendship, podcasting, comedy, growing older in comedy, Conan’s new show “Conan O’Brien Must Go”, and reading commercials. 

Bio:Conan O'Brien was born in Brookline, MA, and started his path in comedy when he served twice as the president of The Harvard Lampoon. Conan went on to become a writer and producer on several television shows, including "Saturday Night Live" and "The Simpsons," until 1993, when NBC tapped him to take over as host of "Late Night." Since then, he's won four Emmy Awards, seven Writers Guild Awards, and the People's Choice Award for "Favorite Television Host." He has hosted two Emmy Awards, and performed at the White House Correspondents Dinner for two presidents. In 2010, his comedy tour was the subject of the documentary “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop,” and led to a second multi-city stand-up tour in 2018.

In 2021, O'Brien concluded his 11 year run with "CONAN" on TBS, solidifying his 28 year career as a late night host and one of the longest tenures in late night history. His Emmy award winning “CONAN Without Borders” series has visited 13 countries and his podcast “Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend” currently has over 430 million downloads since it launched in 2018. His award winning digital brand Team Coco, which spans across digital and branded content, live events, merchandise and expertly produced comedy specials was acquired by SiriusXM in 2022. O’Brien recently completed production on an international travel series, “Conan O’Brien Must Go,” which premiered on MAX on April 18th, 2024.
