AceShowbiz - Ahead of the finale of his long-running late night show, Conan O'Brien is letting himself loose on TV. In a new episode of "CONAN", the 58-year-old TV host shared a joint with guest Seth Rogen as one of his shenanigans leading up to the finale of his TBS series.
During the Wednesday, June 23 episode, Conan shared that he would be having a lot of free time in hand after wrapping up his talk show. He asked Seth to recommend things which he could do to kill time. The "Superbad" actor, who is known for his cannabis-centric comedy, suggested him to try smoking pot before handing weed over to the host. Before lighting it up, Conan joked, "This is the kind of thing you do when you know it's over for you."
"I don't smoke any weed, and that's not a judgement. It's not that I have any problem with people smoking pot--I think it actually seems to be a fine herb," Conan explained. "But the couple of times I've tried it, nothing really happened… But I know that you own a weed company so you might be able to tell me, maybe I was smoking the wrong stuff."
Of the weed that he gave to Conan, Seth said, "I think you should take one hit of that weed, and I think you’ll have a really good time." Feeling eager to get high, Conan asked, "When does this thing that's gonna happen happen?" To that, Seth replied, "Well, we'll wait a few minutes and see how you feel and then maybe you have a little bit more if you're still functional. I'm so happy with what just happened."
Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Conan would be ending his show, which premiered in 2010 on TBS. The decision was made allegedly due to poor ratings in 2020-21 season. The finale will air on Thursday, June 24 at 10 P.M. with Jack Black appearing as the guest.
