Conan O’Brien’s longtime sidekick has confirmed that he is on board for the new TBS talk show "Conan," reports Deadline.com.
“I am mostly looking forward to getting out of the house again,” said Andy Richter, who has been with O’Brien on "Late Night With Conan O’Brien" and "The Tonight Show." Richter also joined the recent Conan O’Brien concert tour, "Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television."
O’Brien’s reaction to the news of Richter’s hiring: “This decision was made without my authority. I will get to the bottom of this.”
