Conan O’Brien Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Conan Christopher O’Brien was born on 18 April 1963, in Brookline, Massachusetts USA of pre- civil war Irish immigrants. Conan is a famous television personality, musician, comedian and writer, best known for working on such shows as “Saturday Night Live”, “Late Night”, “The Tonight Show” and others. During his career, Conan has been acclaimed by receiving many awards, including Primetime Emmy Award, Writers Guild of America Award, Telvis Award and various other awards. He has been working in the television and movie industries for about 30 years, so there is no surprise that he is respected among other television personalities and actors. His successful work has had a huge influence on the creation of many popular shows and projects.

So how rich is Conan O’Brien, it is estimated that Conan’s net worth is $85 million, and clearly the main source of this sum of money has been his appearances on various television shows. In addition to this, Conan has also appeared in several movies. What was more beneficial for him, is that he has not only appeared on various television shows, but also worked as a producer or writer in many of them. This, undoubtedly, has added to O’Brien’s net worth. Hopefully, Conan will be able to continue his career for a long time and soon his net worth will become higher.

Conan O’Brien Net Worth $85 Million

Conan studied at Brookline High School, where he also worked on the school’s newspaper. His skill in writing was very soon noticed by teachers and other students of the school. Later he continued his studies at Harvard University, where his father was a professor, where Conan continued writing and was also a member of the band called “The Bad Clams”. After finishing his studies, Conan started working as a writer on such shows as “Not Necessarily the News” and “The Wilton North Report”. This, of course, added a lot to Conan O’Brien’s net worth, but in 1988 Conan became a part of the very popular show which had a great impact on his net worth, called “Saturday Night Live”. Despite the success this show brought to Conan, he decided to leave it in 1991. In the same year, Conan received a invitation to work on the show, which is now famous all over the world, “The Simpsons”. This was another huge step in his career.

Two years, later Conan left this show because he had an opportunity to host his own show, called “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”. Although at first it was weird for him to stand in front of the cameras, he soon became comfortable with it and gained a lot of praise. This also made Conan’s net worth grow. In a short period of time, Conan became one of the most famous television personalities in the industry, and that is why there were many shows that wanted him to work as a host. Other shows and movies that Conan appeared in include “Nashville”, “Real Husband of Hollywood”, “Now You See Me”, “The Great Buck Howard” and others. All these appearances added to the O’Brien’s net worth. In addition to this, Conan has worked on two video games: “Halo 4” and “Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham”. As he is now 52 years old, there is a high chance that soon he will participate in many new and successful projects.

To talk about Conan O’Brien’s personal life, it can be said that in 2002 he married Elizabeth “Liza” Ann Powel, and the couple has two children.. All in all, Conan O’Brien is a hard working man, who has a lot of experience in the television industry and his name and extraordinary personality is known all over the world. Hopefully, he will be able to show even more in the near future.

#Fact
1 Shortly after New York state legalized gay marriage, Conan became an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church so he could officiate the wedding of one of his producers on his show while it was being taped that week in New York City.
2 Is good friends with Timothy Olyphant, Joel McHale and Martin Short.
3 Resides in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles.
4 Ended his contract with the Tonight Show on NBC and may return to television in September. [January 2010]
5 Hosted NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993) from 1993-2009.
6 Visited Finland. [February 2006]
7 After leaving The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009), Conan kicked off a comedy tour and signed a contract with TBS to start his new show Conan (2010). [April 2010]
8 Maintains a country retreat in the secluded, Litchfield County town of Washington, Connecticut. [May 2007]
9 Prior to her death, Conan frequently parodied Anna Nicole Smith and made jokes about her being a gold digger and a ditzy blonde during his monologues but, after she passed away, he immediately stopped as a gesture of respect.
10 He was given the nickname "Coco" by Tom Hanks on the second episode of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009). Conan jokingly replied "If that sticks, I'm going to sue you!" The name "Coco" would later be used for the Team Coco online campaign to support him during the "Late Night Wars" in late 2009.
11 At 46 years old, he was the oldest person at the time to start hosting "The Tonight Show". When Jay Leno took "The Tonight Show" back over, if you consider that to be "starting" hosting again, then he would be the oldest now. Otherwise, his record still stands.
12 Grew up in Brookline, Massachusetts.
13 Was the last guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992).
14 Claims he lost his virginity listening to The Who.
15 Often tries to calm his "Late Night" audience with the term "Cool Babies". This is a lyric from the Talking Heads song, "Burning Down the House".
16 Is an avid fan of filmmaker Kevin Smith.
17 Owns a summer home in Norfolk, Massachusetts.
18 Close friends with writer Chris Graves.
19 Son-in-law of Seattle Dixieland band-leader Jake Powel.
20 One of his all-time favorite television shows is The Odd Couple (1970).
21 For Conan, the most beautiful woman in the world is Gisele Bündchen. He had the opportunity of telling her personally this when she was a guest on his show in 2005.
22 In one episode of his show, a Finnish man in his audience pointed out to him that he looked like President Tarja Halonen. He decided to support Halonen in the election campaign in 2006, and started a skit called "Pro-Finland, Anti- Sweden". Halonen met with him and Halonen gave to him as a gift, Moomin dolls for his family.
23 When Burt Ward was asked to give a speech at Harvard about his role on Batman (1966), he brought the original costume, said to be valued at half a million dollars. Some students came up to him dressed as security guards and told him they would keep the costume safe. Then in the middle of the speech, one student stood up and asked, "When is a costume not a costume? When it's stolen." The lights dimmed and the students grabbed the costume and made off. After snapping pictures with one another in the cape, they later called Ward and gave the costume back. The ringleader of the gang? Harvard Lampoon editor, Conan O'Brien.
24 Once shared an apartment with comedian/actor Jeff Garlin in Chicago across from Wrigley Field before both of them made it big.
25 Son, Beckett O'Brien, was born on November 9, 2005 in New York City, weighing in at 8 lbs. 4 oz.
26 Originally wanted to name his daughter the old-fashioned Irish feminine name Niamh (pronounced "knee-vh" or "neh-v"), which means "radiance, lustre, brightness" -- but decided that her life would be easier if they Americanized the spelling to Neve.
27 In the beginning season of the show, he signed a new contract every week because the network was doubtful of the show's future and his ratings.
28 His show was cancelled for one night and brought back because the network's executives wanted to find a replacement show before cancelling the show. A replacement show was never needed.
29 Both of his parents are of Irish descent.
30 Became the 5th host of "The Tonight Show" on its 55th anniversary.
31 Hosted Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993) until 2009 when he replaced Jay Leno as host of NBC's Tonight Show. He was fired from The Tonight Show after less than a year because he refused to start the show later. He felt like that wouldn't really be The Tonight Show in a different time slot. Afterward he went on a nationwide comedy and music tour before taking a job at TBS as host of "Conan" in 2010.
32 Plays guitar.
33 Replaced David Letterman in the late night slot on NBC after Letterman left for CBS. Virtually no one thought the show would last. It did last, for 17 years.
34 In the 2001 film, Sugar & Spice (2001), one of the cheerleaders is obsessed with "Conan O'Brien".
35 Calls where he sits "The Chat Zone."
36 Calls where he does his monologue "The Laugh Zone."
37 Daughter Neve O'Brien born October 14, 2003 in New York (6 lbs., 10 oz.).
38 The name of his production company, Conaco, was chosen to echo the name of petroleum company Conoco.
39 Took tap dancing lessons as a child
40 Once shared an apartment with Bill Cusack.
41 A graduate of Brookline High School.
42 Older brother of Jane O'Brien and Kate B. O'Brien.
43 Lived in Manhattan's fabled West Side apartment building, the Apthorp, whose residents include Rosie O'Donnell, Steve Kroft, Cyndi Lauper, Kate Nelligan and Lena Horne.
44 Married Liza Powel on January 12, 2002, in a full Catholic Mass by Father Paul O'Brien (no relation) at St. James Cathedral in Liza's home town, Seattle. The couple met when Liza was a guest on Late Night.
45 Had a golden retriever named Hudson, who was originally part of a sketch on "Late Night". He now has a golden retriever named Bosco.
46 He was editor of the Harvard Lampoon for two years in a row, and he is the second person to have ever done this. It had been 85 years since it was done.
47 Graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University, with a BA in American History & Literature. [1985]
48 A distant cousin of Denis Leary.
49 His favorite episode of The Simpsons (1989) is "Marge vs. the Monorail".
50 Born at 1:38pm-EST
51 Appeared as an extra and bit player on a number of skits on Saturday Night Live (1975) - notably as "Sheriff Andy" in a Twin Peaks (1990) parody with Kyle MacLachlan, and drinking in the bar in the "Irish Drinking Songs" commercial parody.
52 Worked as a warmup comic for the The Wilton North Report (1987).

#Quote
1 Work hard, be kind, and amazing things will happen.
2 [returning from a trip to Cuba, 2015] Maybe it isn't a bad form of diplomacy to send a comedian over.
3 If you wanted the most simple way to understand how America changed between 1954 and 2005, it would be [that] we've mutated from Howdy Doody to Triumph. That's either really good news or bad new for America. I'm suspecting it's bad news.
4 [jokingly, on similarities with Howdy Doody] I'm controlled by others, I have artificial joints, and I have no soul. These freckles are painted on.
5 [Final words at the final The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009)]: And all I ask is one thing and this is... I'm asking this particularly of young people that watch. Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism; for the record, it's my least favorite quality, it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen. I'm telling you, amazing things will happen. I'm telling you, it's just true.
6 If I existed 200 years ago, all the other farmers in my community would be like, 'That guy is worthless! He's sitting on a rock, jumping up like a frog, coming up with weird concepts and ideas, making faces, and combing his hair into a giant pastry.' It's a good thing I was born in this century, when superfluous television seems to be part of the economy.
7 "I've always believed, in my heart of hearts, that it would be a better show if, when I crossed over to the desk, the band kept playing for an hour and I danced in a cage.
8 If you can really laugh at yourself loud and hard every time you fall, people will think you're drunk.
9 The nightmare is you spend the rest of your life being funny at parties and then people say 'Why didn't you do that when you were on television?'

#Trademark
1 His height
2 Beard
3 Usually ends his show with the phrase "bye, everybody, bye," spoken very rapidly.
4 His hair
5 The string dance (a little made-up jig where he pulls an imaginary string behind his back, which moves his hips, and finishes by cutting it).
6 Frequently knocks over the microphone at his desk, usually after an awkward moment or brazen joke.
7 Frequently makes jokes at his own expense and at the expense of band leader 'Max Weinberg' and band member La Bamba.
8 Frequently lampoons how much he is "unknown," "disliked," or poorly paid compared to guests and his "competition," despite the fact that the opposite is true.
9 Since 9/11, no longer begins the show by jumping around the stage but still makes the big final leap onto his mark and then spins his arm to "throw" to Max.
