50 Years of Conan O’Brien: A Golden Birthday Extravaganza

Today is Conan O’Brien’s 50th birthday.

Yes, our tall red-headed Hero of the Night is half a century old, and that means it’s as good a time as ever to revel in Conan-ism. Let’s look, shall we?

Conan’s 1993 Late Night audition, with Mimi Rogers, Jason Alexander, and hair that doesn’t go up-and-back like we’re used to now:

Make time — you’ll need an hour and 22 minutes — for Serious Jibber-Jabber, the Team Coco show which features, in this episode, a reunion of writers from The Simpsons, Al Jean, Mike Reiss, Jake Hogan, and Jeff Martin:

From the Academy of Arts and Sciences, Conan moderates a Breaking Bad panel with Vince Gilligan, Bryan Cranston, et al.:

Our pal Jimmy Pardo, who doubles as the warmup comic for Conan, discusses some, er, “Gentleman Problems” (it hurts where you don’t want to hurt) with Conan on the show:

(Hey, go watch Jimmy’s Write Now! on the Nerdist Channel, why don’tcha?)

Remember Clueless Gamer’s encounter with Just Dance 4 with soccer player Alex Morgan? Here:

 

Conan in Ireland, dropping by the Guinness factory looking for free beer:

And while we’re at it, visit TeamCoco.com, the TeamCoco channel on YouTube, and the awesome Tumblr Reasons My Talk Show Host Is Crying, which is… this:

 

Happy birthday, Conan, from your friends at Nerdist and the Nerdist Channel. Save us some cake.
