Going as far back as the Late Night days, Conan O’Brien seemingly has a knack for getting serious people to completely let their guard down when they were a guest on his show. From James Lipton to Martha Stewart to Harrison Ford to Abe Vigoda, it is as if there is a safety net when you’re with Conan that you won’t find with anyone else. There is a comfort level, as if you know that you’re completely safe under Conan’s guidance.
One of the prime examples of this was whenever he had Larry King on as a guest. King, who was often an O’Brien joke staple whenever he referenced something old, was up for anything. In honor of his passing, we thought we’d take a look at just how unexpectedly funny Larry King could be on his many appearances with the late night host. From sharing a weed brownie to getting into bed with Conan and Andy to playing an angel to hosting a show from the rafters, take a look at just what made him a fan favorite over the years.
