Conan O’Brien Is Going To Marry A Man On His Talk Show

Word on the street—well, New York magazine’s Vulture column—id that Conan O’Brien will celebrate the one-year anniversary of his rebooted late-night talk show, Conan, by officiating a same-sex wedding between a longtime staffer and his partner.

The blessed event will take place on-air some time next week, when Conan returns to the Big Apple to record a week of shows at New York’s Beacon Theater. Too bad Coco can’t do the honors in Burbank, where the show is usually filmed. But, um, Cali is still sorting out whether homos can get hitched or not.

Conan airs weeknights at 10pm on TBS.

    Well given that the headline is “Conan O’Brien Will Officiate a Gay Wedding on His Show Next Week”, I think we can assume he plans to officiate the wedding…

  • Robert in NYC

    I assume O’Brien is licensed to officiate?

    I assume O’brien is making a mockery of marriage equality.

    Exactly how many heterosexuals has Conan Obrien married. Something is very sinister here posing as comedy. I don’t like it.

    @ewe: “Show sources are quick to caution that the potentially groundbreaking event is no mere publicity stunt,” Kyle Buchanan wrote, “and isn’t intended too make light of gay marriage.”

    Please don’t call it “Cali” just because some cretin once did and it caught on like herpes. Would you say “Allie” for Alabama? “Missi” for Mississippi? “Pennsy” for Pennsylvania?

    @Jase: Real news source? Lol. It’s fucking Conan O’Brien not the United Nations. You’re pathetic. Real news source. Where Hollywood reporter, the Inquirer? Funny.

    Or Chi-Town instead of Chicago? Oh, yeah. We do.

    The reason people don’t call Alabama “Allie” is because, well…we don’t call it Allie. If it happened as commonly as we call California “Cali”, then it’d be seen as an acceptable nickname. That’s kinda how slang works. If it catches on, it catches on.
