The Origins of Whatever You Call What We Did with Conan O'Brien and Robert Smigel (Live Comedy Event)

Mar 9, 2024

10:00pm – 11:15pm CT

Conan and Robert talk about meeting up at SNL in the late 80s and reminisce about the idiocy they created together that led to the birth of a talk show, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, that would change the way people call Late Night with David Letterman. We'll see rare clips from their early work, including the Adam West pilot, Lookwell, as well as some highlights from the beginning of Late Night.
