Andy Richter to Return in Conan

Longtime O'Brien Collaborator Will Join Conan on TBS Beginning Nov. 8

One of the longest running teams in late-night television will again take the stage together as Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter join forces on Conan, which premieres Monday, Nov. 8, at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS.

A collaboration that began Sept. 13, 1993, O'Brien and Richter have developed a comedic chemistry that few performers have achieved. Through two late-night franchises and the recently concluded The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour, Richter has been a consistent asset to O'Brien.

Andy Richter stated, "I'm thrilled to be going back to work with Conan, and very excited to start a whole new venture on TBS. However, I am mostly looking forward to getting out of the house again."

Conan O'Brien added, "This decision was made without my authority. I will get to the bottom of this."

Actor and writer Andy Richter rose to fame on Late Night with Conan O'Brien as O'Brien's sidekick since its premiere on Sept. 13, 1993. He starred in the Emmy(R)-nominated Andy Richter Controls the Universe for the Fox network and the series Andy Barker, P.I. for NBC. Richter has been very active in the feature film world, as well. His many appearances include such films as Robert Altman's Dr. T and the Women, Scary Movie 2, Elf, Madagascar, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Talladega Nights, Blades of Glory and Semi-Pro. He was most recently seen on TBS hosting Team Coco Presents: The Conan Writers Live. Richter attended the University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign and Columbia College, where he studied film and video.

Conan will originate from Stage 15 at Warner Bros. Studios and will be produced by Conaco LLC. Jeff Ross is the executive producer.
