Comedian and actor Martin Short feels ashamed about being Conan O’Brien’s friend. Martin and Conan sit down to chat about the best time to be 30, the production of Godspell that started it all, how Martin’s Irish heritage shaped his comedy, doing Bette Davis in front of Bette Davis, and which character Martin would like to be buried as. Plus, Conan and his team deconstruct the family dynamic of the show. Got a question for Conan? Call our voicemail: (323) 451-2821.

After 25 years at the Late Night desk, Conan realized that the only people at his holiday party are the men and women who work for him. Over the years and despite thousands of interviews, Conan has never made a real and lasting friendship with any of his celebrity guests. So, he started a podcast to do just that. Deeper, unboundedly playful, and free from FCC regulations, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend is a weekly opportunity for Conan to hang out with the people he enjoys most and perhaps find some real friendship along the way.
