The Prince of the Pompadour. The King of the Quiff. The Duke of Swirl. Who doesn’t love a little Conan O’Brien? I’ve always been a fan of his special brand of self-depricating humor ever since his early days on Late Night. It’s that special combination of comedic genius, strong work ethic, and Catholic guilt that’s always made him feel a little more real than other TV personalities.
Creating this visual biography infographic was a fun way to show the unique paths Conan’s career has taken. There’s an incredible amount of Conan stories which made it difficult to pick and choose what made the final cut – at almost nine feet in length. Enjoy!
