  • We have a great show tonight.

  • (ringing) Hold on just a second.

  • I am told I'm getting a Zoom call from, really?

  • One of my writers, yes.

  • Oh, it's Laurie Kilmartin. Hey Laurie.

  • Hi Conan, how's it going?

  • It's going great.

  • Is it okay if I call you back?

  • 'Cause I'm taping a show right now.

  • Oh, I won't keep you.

  • I just wondered when you have a minute,

  • could you write me a letter of recommendation?

  • Letter of recommendation, like a job recommendation?

  • Yeah, I'm trying to apply for this job.

  • Here, let me show you.

  • Prince William and Kate Middleton

  • are on the hunt for a housekeeper with discretion.

  • Wait, you want to be a housekeeper for the royal family?

  • Oh, very much.

  • Okay, I get that you're a big fan of the royals.

  • I've always known that, but Laurie,

  • you're an incredible standup comic with a great career.

  • And you're a writer for me.

  • I mean, that's like the Holy Grail.

  • Why would you want to be a housekeeper?

  • Well, I don't know,

  • I guess because Kensington Palace would be my house.

  • I see.

  • Do you see?

  • Look, this is my current house.

  • [Conan] Okay. It's nice enough, yeah.

  • [Laurie] And this would be my future house.

  • [Conan] Okay, I get it, I get it, yeah.

  • So let's just shuttle back and forth

  • between the two, shall we?

  • Tell me if you could spot any differences.

  • Okay. No, no, no, no. My house, their house.

  • [Conan] You don't have to do that, I get it.

  • My house, their house. I get it, I get it.

  • My house, their house. I get it, stop.

  • My house, their house. Stop, that's fine.

  • But Laurie, the job post says

  • they're looking for a housekeeper with discretion.

  • That means whatever you saw,

  • you'd have to keep it to yourself.

  • Do you think you can do that?

  • Conan, I worked for you for 10 years

  • and I've never told anyone

  • that you have a panic attack before every show.

  • Well, I don't think it's every show.

  • Every single night, full-blown panic.

  • You grab your producer Jeff, and you start crying

  • and you say, "they're gonna eat me alive, mommy."

  • And then he has to slap you

  • and you start crying harder, "hold me, mommy."

  • All right, all right, all right.

  • You know what? I'll write you a recommendation, all right?

  • And what about that time you tried to start

  • hoop skirt Mondays at the office.

  • Only you showed up in a giant blue hoop skirt,

  • no one else did.

  • Wait a minute, wait a minute.

  • I said I'd write your recommendation,

  • and it wasn't a bad idea.

  • I could have, but I never mentioned

  • your Anthony Michael Hall back tattoo.

  • I could have.

  • He was great in "Johnny Be Good."

  • You paid someone to chew your food for you

  • and you say "baby bird want his lunchie."

  • All right, all right, we're good, we're good.

  • I'll write you the recommendation, okay?

  • Thank you. Thanks. (disconnection ding)

  • Got a terrific show.

  • Ricky Gervais gonna be joining us.

  • We'll take a break, we'll be right back.

  • I'm getting hungry. (relaxed music)

  • Andy, can you chew my food?

  • Baby bird wants his lunchie!

  • All right, I'll be right there.

We have a great show tonight.
