While taping a segment for the Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien reportedly fell HEADFIRST down a flight of stairs. Yikes. The injury was so severe, he had to be taken from the set of his show to the emergency room. But maybe he didn’t fall down a flight of stairs. Maybe he forgot to pay me.
This isn’t the first time a late-night talk show has been injured, Stephen Colbert has broke his wrist, which resulted in a month-long gag, and Jay Leno would routinely get slapped during Jaywalking. Still, being the youngest late-night talk-show host in prime-time, Conan’s proven himself to be a workhorse.
If there’s any body part I’d want to safeguard if I were Conan O’Brien, it would be my beautiful Irish head. It seems quite large. Large enough that Jack White can make a sculpture of it. Fortunately for his twenty viewers, the injury isn’t severe, and he’ll be back to work next week, but still, he had to cancel on his guests, Teri Hatcher and Seth MacFarlane. When asked to comment, Seth MacFarlane made SOME HILARIOUS VOICES, BRA. Then he jump cut to Teri Hatcher, and David Letterman quietly laughed and rubbed his hands together. Everything is going according to plan.
