Conan writers: Punching up the clock
While the writers from the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien didn’t win the Creative Arts Emmy this weekend, there IS some good news to come out of the event. The B-Roll was produced! Yes, arguably the best part of the annual Emmy broadcast is the video produced by each show, representing their respective writing teams.
When the category of Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music, or Comedy Program was annexed to the Creative Arts edition, comedy nerds mourned the loss of their insider-y writer jokes and fleeting moments of silliness.
But trust Team Conan to come to our rescue! With minimal production facilities to work with, they came up with something simple but great. Unfortunately, the still shot gives away the joke, but there are a few additional treats within. Here’s hoping the other shows’ reels exist – and that we’ll see them when the show airs on E! August 27.
