How long have you been Team Coco? What’s your earliest Conan memory?
I've been Team Coco since I was a wee lad. I recall having sleepovers with my buddies and we would stay up late just to watch Conan. We never had time for any other late night host. Our favorite segments were the Syncro-Vox sketches, where Conan would interview celebrities like Martha Stewart and Michael Jackson via a television screen with a picture of the celebrity super-imposed over the mouth of an actor. Always laughed so hard at those bits!
Do you have a favorite Conan moment?
Two moments stand out to me: Occupy Conan and the semi-recent interview with Jeff Goldblum. Occupy Conan was ground-breaking and revolutionary television and I was lucky enough to be part of it (albeit dressed as Anne Hathaway in a bad wig and dress in the "Conan Has No Butt" scene). The Jeff Goldblum interview was one of the greatest and funniest pieces of television in recent memory. I was almost in tears from the awkwardness and goofiness of the piece. Plus, we got the inside scoop on Conan's shaving habits.
How do you spend a typical day?
I'm a history student at Northwest Missouri State University, so my days are filled with classes and boredom. I write the occasional twenty-page paper and hang with my bros. It's a tough life, but somebody's gotta live it.
What’s the one thing you would never ever do; not for a million dollars or all the chocolate in the world?
I would never get into a tub of crickets. Crickets are the most evil creatures in the world and I am sure that Satan has a legion of giant crickets guarding the entrance to his unholy kingdom.
What would you like to see more of from Team Coco?
I love any sketch involving Brian Stack, whether it's Brian LaFontaine or Joe Galliano, I love them all. Brian and Conan's exchanges are priceless!
Anything else important about you that the world should know?
I love garage sales and thrift stores. And Hornswoggle is my favorite WWE wrestler.
