You want to know why Conan O'Brien is so funny?
It's because of his
comical gingey head writing staff!
The writers of Conan will be filming an hour long special called Team Coco Presents Conan's Writers Live at the second annal Just for Laughs festival in Chicago next month.
The idea is to give audiences a "taste" of what Conan's new gig will be like. Hosting the show will be Conan's sidekick, Andy Richter, who believes the show will be a great way to keep the news of Conan's TBS gig in the public eye, while giving his boss a much needed rest. Andy says:
"It was a good way to do a special that was about the show and not so specifically focused on Conan. After this tour is over, he's going to be a little spent. And the writers are chomping at the bit to get a little taste of performing again."
Something really interesting for hardcore Team Coco fans to tune in for. The rest of us can just wait until October.

With Conan O'Brien's ratings tanking fast, NBC may be looking for a replacement for the new Tonight Show host.
It's being reported that the peacock network is going after Jerry Seinfeld to replace the not so funny late night host.
A source reveals:
"NBC just can't carry on like this. 'The Tonight Show' has lost 52 percent of its viewership in just one year. The November ratings will be the show's lowest in 15 years. They would be idiots to not be having the replacement conversation."
We'd hardly call that fair, especially since Conan's only been on for a few months!
And it looks like NBC agrees!
The network says the whole Seinfeld thing is "completely false. There are no conversations happening. Conan is the host of the Tonight Show."
At least for now he is.
