Fair to say that it has been a hot or two hot minutes since Con9 O'Brien was torn out of virtual darkness and stuck in the awkward boots of David Letterman . Late Night Time window on NBC . During this time, the old buddy asked more than anyone else: personalities, luminaries, people, and different people's cities. Most were ok. Some were above average. But as it turned out, only one was so good-naturedly cooked that he was firmly in O & Brien's mind to be considered the worst guest ever.
Conan recently appeared Dax Shepard podcast podcast (not to be confused with Pierre Bernard ) and in particular referred to as notorious . 1
Ferrara appeared in an episode of Late Night in 1996 – Conan's fourth year at the helm – and, according to O & # 39; Brien, this was an incredible pain that it was a fight to him only in to bring the building, let alone in the wings.  Abel Ferrara was booked on our show and he's a wild eccentric … and he's fled the show in front of his segment. He ran away, got into the elevator, and was on the street when [my segment producer] took up the chase. He caught him, led him back, let him – push him – backstage. He came against his will in front of the camera. And then he came out and I think I started yelling at me.
Of course, the entire interview is on YouTube, and the entire segment crashes almost instantaneously.
Although Conan endured, Conan also claimed the interview: " was entertaining, it is said that eating 15 cloves of garlic would not say it was a great experience. But you would remember it. We call it "Compellevision" (19459006).]
Honestly, I would turn on hell to see a guy eating 15 cloves of garlic on a late night talk show, even though he's still in Conan's riffing Money.
