When it was announced that Larry King died over the weekend, we put together a piece that highlighted some of our favorite Larry King appearances with Conan O’Brien. And at the start of his show last night, O’Brien had some nice memories to share. He talked about how Larry King came to the show prepared with jokes he wanted to try out, how he was up for anything, and Andy Richter added that he was “exactly who you’d want him to be”. He ended the tribute by showing a montage of some of Larry King’s funniest moments on the show over the years.
In a world where some broadcasters may have a tendency to take themselves too seriously, it’s always refreshing to see someone has no problem letting their guard down and trying to be funny.
