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.
Comedian and actor Will Ferrell feels awkward about being Conan O’Brien’s friend.
Will joins Conan along with trusty assistant Sona Movsesian and producer Matt Gourley to reflect on his unmatched commitment to comedy, sharing humble roots with Conan at The Groundlings, feeling good about bad reviews, and remembering the comedy bit Will performed on Late Night that got them both in trouble with Lorne Michaels.
Plus, Conan answers questions from fans about hair, Star Wars, and staff favorites. Got a question for Conan? Call our voicemail: (323) 451-2821.
Will Ferrell’s new movie Holmes and Watson opens in theaters December 21st.
