More vintage Late Night. TV Squad have the first ever episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien (watch it here).
The build up to the start is fantastic – this is a must see for any Conan fan. It’s also an opportunity to see Andy Richter – originally a sidekick on the show. Part of the first gesture is still used today, and the setup to Actual Small Town Items is slightly funnier now (“These are real. Why would you make them up? That’d be stupid”), with the take on Jay Leno as a bonus.
If the set looks familiar, you might recognise it from the episode of The Simpsons where Bart appears on Late Night. (Clip on YouTube)
