A winning combination of zany humor, recurring sketches and self-deprecation has made Conan O’Brien the undisputed king of late night’s second hour. His “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” has been a favorite with college and high school students and critics alike for more than a decade. After growing up in the Boston suburbs, O’Brien attended Harvard University and graduated magna cum laude with a degree in History and Literature. While at Harvard, he wrote for the legendary “Harvard Lampoon” humor publication and became the organization’s president. That experience gave the aspiring humor writer the push to move to television, and in 1988, O’Brien was hired as a writer on “Saturday Night Live.” The next year, the show’s writing staff won an Emmy. In 1991, O’Brien joined the writers’ room at Fox’s animated smash “The Simpsons” and also received a producing credit.
During his tenure with “The Simpsons”, O’Brien auditioned for the “Late Night” slot following Jay Leno at the urging of “SNL” executive producer Lorne Michaels. On September 13, 1993, O’Brien made his debut as the host of “Late Night” with sidekick Andy Richter. By the time Richter left the show in 2000, “Late Night” had become a bonafide hit. NBC announced in 2004 that O’Brien will take over “The Tonight Show” when Leno retires in 2009.
