Stephen Colbert to Conan O’Brien: “You are the living history of late-night”

  • Weeks after Conan visited Colbert on The Late Show, Colbert returned the favor and visited the Conan show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. As Darren Franich says of Conan, “Now he seems calmer, and maybe that’s the wisdom of age or the job security of basic cable. Maybe he’s less exciting. But, then again: I thought O’Brien’s interview on The Late Show was a snooze, and I loved Colbert’s interview on Conan. You remember that old joke about the two barbers, one with hair that looks terrible and one with hair that looks great. Which barber do you go to? It’s a trick, and a lesson: The one who looks bad made the other guy look good.”
