Conan O’Brien & Mel Brooks – Serious Jibber-Jabber
Separate from his live show on TBS, Conan O’Brien has a more serious Charlie-Rose-esqe interview show on the web called Serious Jibber-Jabber. It really is a very well done show and allows Conan’s Harvard-educated smarts to be better put on display. For example, his interview with Nate Silver is probably on the best interviews about the 2012 election I’ve seen. The problem with interviews on late-night comedy shows is that interviews last only a few minutes and no serious discussions are held. ‘Serious Jibber-Jabber’ interviews last well over an hour and are very detail oriented and serious with a few jokes throughout. It makes you think that Conan could replace Charlie Rose once he decides to retire.
Here is Conan O’Brien interviewing comedian Mel Brooks.
