Garry Shandling, one of the two or three most influential comedians of the era, died yesterday at the age of 66. There are a ton of really good tributes and remembrances out there, and I hope you’ll share your favorites in the comments, but in the meantime enjoy this one: Conan O’Brien last night, sharing the story of…
Congratulations to Conan O’Brien, who managed to take the hot-take superfund site that was Cam Newton’s press conference and make it a set-up for a very enjoyable bit. I promise, this won’t annoy you at all!
If we’ve learned anything from Conan O’Brien’s new Super Bowl tradition of picking up the sticks with two of the big game’s participants, it’s that nothing lowers the guard of famously media-averse pro athletes like ruthlessly murdering animated sprites in video games. Josh Norman and Von Miller pick up where Rob…
Conan O’Brien’s new Clueless Gamer segment had him spending time with Tony Hawk and Lil Wayne as the three of them played Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. The two guests were also quizzed on terms that were either skate tricks or sex positions. “Beef Cheeks Power Slide” should be both, honestly.
While Conor McGregor’s scheduled bout against Jose Aldo next Saturday is off the table, McGregor still made an appearance on Conan last night in preparation for his new opponent Chad Mendes. And McGregor had plenty to say, including that he has “as much sex as possible” before big fights and that were Floyd Mayweather…
Though we enjoy UC Irvine’s Peter the Anteater, Conan O’Brien believed the mascot could suck less—it can’t even do real pushups since the nose gets in the way—so he went to the school and provided some suggestions for a better one.
Marshawn Lynch and Gronk played some video games on Conan's show the other day and it was great. Attempting to satiate an insatiable demand for all things Marshawn Lynch, Team Coco has uploaded a video of outtakes from the shoot, appropriately calling it "Marshawnisms." What's a Marshawnism? Probably something like…
Conan had Rob Gronkowski and Marshawn Lynch on his show to play the yet-to-be-released Mortal Kombat X, and there was really no way the premise couldn't deliver. Come for the discussion about Mario Kart characters, and stay for Marshawn Lynch teaching Conan how to properly taunt the opposition by grabbing your nuts.…
As news of actor Robin Williams's death spread Monday night, Conan O'Brien was wrapping up his show, which would air a few hours later. When Conan learned what had happened, he took a couple of minutes before the taping finished, and broke the news to the audience.
One of the largest video-capable screens in the world is finally being used as it should be: To play Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, Need For Speed, Flower and a few more games on it. Not playing Pong on it is probably a wasted opportunity, though.
Conan O'Brien is taping his show in Dallas this week, and last night he invited Dirk Nowitzki onto the show to test just how much of a Texan Conan really is. It's a pretty funny bit, but mostly it's just a reminder that Dirk is awesome and that the NBA will be a much worse and humorless place when "The Berlin Tall"…
Conan O'Brien has an occasional segment on his show called "Clueless Gamer," and for the latest installment, he played WWE 2K14. He followed his Irish roots and chose Sheamus as his wrestler, accurately describing Stephen Farrelly as "Louis CK crossed with Bart Simpson."
Twenty years ago The Ring magazine asked the question, after Mike Tyson's rape conviction, "What If Mike Tyson Had Never Gone To Jail?" The cover story posed a counterfactual in which Tyson did not receive a guilty verdict on his 1991 indictment for rape, confinement and criminal deviant conduct.
Well, finally. Someone at NBC has admitted that its coverage of the Olympics wasn't absolutely perfect.
Every Friday, SportsFeat picks a few great weekend reads for Deadspin. This week we're chipping in with our favorite long-form writing about comedians.
On the premiere of Conan, Conan O'Brien decided to cram as much news into one of his monologue jokes as possible. He covered a lot of ground, summing up the year so far with a humorous, very succinct, "comma Brett Favre's penis."
In sports, everyone is a winner—some people just win better than others. Like some creatures we can actually comment on without pissing off our lawyers.
Conan O'Brien might have some downtime coming up. So the Washington Generals, they of the decades-long losing streak, have reached out and offered him a starting spot.
