Conan Christopher O'Brien (born April 18, 1963) is an Emmy Award-winning American television host and comedian, best known as host of NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

Conan got his first start in comedy as a writer for Saturday Night Live and The Simpsons. Conan hosted Late Night from 1993 to 2009. In 2009, he replaced Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show. In 2010, NBC decided to give The Tonight Show back to Leno, which led to Conan leaving NBC. Many people were upset that Conan had to leave. After leaving The Tonight Show, Conan grew a beard and went on a comedy tour. In November 10, he will host a late-night talk show on TBS called Conan.
