• Summary

  • 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.

Hilarious

Conan’s podcast has made me laugh out loud so many times! Great guests and funny jokes. Often this podcast is the funniest media I consume all day, and that’s really saying something because I’m balls deep in media constantly.

Let me be the first to say...

While I know Conan hates to hear negative or positive feed back. I have nothing for praise for this man. I am truly in awe of him and love his beautiful mind and quick wit. Sona you are his perfect compliment, my wife and love you so much as well. I listen at work and cannot wait to get home and have my wife listen too. Matt thank you for producing this amazing show we all know Conan is not only the looks and brains of;) I love you all and hope you see this because this woman from Arizona is so appreciative!

Saving the world

Conan loves doing lots of fun things like pretend play, science experiments, music videos, skits, challenges, DIY arts and crafts and more!!! Most of the shows are being donated to local charity, or recycled to make off shore wind turbines providing jobs for everyone. Sometimes he eats while casting and the food that flies out of his mouth feeds little birds. And those birds feed cats. My teeth have never been so clean. And I'm sleeping like a baby. What can I say, he is like an old pair of boxers that lift and separate.

Former child actor Does Not go insane!

Daniel Radcliff has not let the ivy grow since the Harry Potter days. Staring in several films and doing very well on the live stage Conan, who has done nothing to contribute to Radcliffe's body of work, feels a warm paternal pride over Daniel's success. Or, maybe, it's just gas... again.

Sonya is going away to have her twins and Conan tries to trick her into leaving the show. He, unlike Radcliffe, sucks at skulduggery and remains 'in need of a friend.'

May have Lost a Fan?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this podcast and have listened to about 70% of these eps and yes Dana Carbon, even while shopping :-) I've been a Conan fan since the beginning. So thank you for sharing, such fun, silliness, and self depreciating, "don't take yourself too seriously", humor. This episode is none of that. I'm not a Republican, I'm actually Canadian and Liberal ... or as my American friends dub me, "Communist" :-) That said, I found Ron Regans ranting completely inappropriate, not so much his views on Trump but on those related to those who may have supported him ... defining these "others" as being "autocratic" and implying general "stupidity". This is uneducated, uninformed and anecdotal at best. I have many, many American friends who are Intelligent, independent thinking, and super talented and are Republicans. They are neither racist, nor white supremacist. Some are black, some are woman. Ron Reagan's views are the type of arrogant, polarizing, uniformed rhetoric that allowed Trump to get elected in the first place. Please keep up the fun, silly, joy inducing content. LOVE you guys!

A true delight

I am a huge Conan fan and he is perfect in this format. His team, Sona and Matt, are great foils to his self-deprecating delivery. I honestly listen for the conversations between them, I can give or take on the guests (depending who I'm interested in). It helped me a lot during the pandemic. Give it a listen!

Great Podcast

The charismatic Conan O' Brien really is amazing. Outstandingly funny, and overall just a great guy. 10/10 recommended listen for anyone who is a fan or looking for a kickback with sporadic comedy and seriousness!!
