Conan O'Brien Returns to NYC, Makes New Friends in Harlem — Watch Video

Conan O’Brien’s eponymous TBS talk show has had difficulty making headlines with its brand of bipartisan humor in a tumultuous election year. His remotes, however, remain funnier than anyone else’s in late-night.

Case in point: Monday’s segment wandering the streets of Harlem, as O’Brien got better acquainted with the neighborhood as he kicked off a week of shows at the Apollo Theater. The comedian, who previously hosted NBC’s New York-based Late Night program before relocating to Los Angeles, had no trouble fitting in, befriending both struggling artists and street vendors. He even managed to snag a free makeover, with enthusiastic beauticians gifting him a new braided ‘do.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Have to agree. Conan’s field pieces are always so good I frankly wish he would ditch the tired talk show format and just create a show based only around those.

    Agree. Conan is funniest when he is on remotes.
