A Farewell to Conan: The Great Late Night Host Says Goodbye After 28 Years (Our 10 Favorite Moments)

It’s the end of an era. Conan O’Brien is putting his late-night talk show host persona to bed after 28 years. The ginger-haired Irishman isn’t completely going off the grid of comedy, however. He’s simply switching networks. After completing his 10th season of Conan on TBS in June 2021, he’s hopping over to HBO Max for a weekly variety series.

“In 1993, Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: ‘As soon as possible, get to a streaming platform,’” the funnyman joked in a statement released by WarnerMedia. “I’m thrilled that I get to continue doing whatever the hell it is I do on HBO Max, and I look forward to a free subscription.”

By way of farewell to the hilarious show we’ve all sacrificed sleep for, we rounded the 10 best moments of Conan. Sit back, pour yourself a shot of whiskey, and enjoy.
