Conan O'Brien wreaks havoc at Emmys 2021 as he gatecrashes Stephen Colbert's speech and heckles Academy Chairman
20th September 2021

CONAN O'Brien left viewers in hysterics at the Emmys 2021 with his over-the-top antics.

The comedian heckled and saluted Television Academy Chairman Frank Scherma, before gatecrashing Stephen Colbert's speech.

Conan started clapping and shouting at the top of his lungs when Frank walked onstage to talk about the TV industry at the awards show.

He had guests – and Frank onstage – cracking up with laughter as he stood up out of his seat and vigorously saluted Frank.

Conan's enthusiastic reaction to the chairman prompted the other guests to stand up and give Frank a standing ovation, as the comic whooped and cheered.

“Thank you, Conan,” Frank acknowledged, laughing.

Elsewhere, the late-night talk show host decided to share in the joy when Stephen Colbert’s live election special won an award for Outstanding Variety Special (live).

Conan hopped onstage with Stephen and cheered and punched the air with both arms in triumph as Stephen accepted the award.

In the virtual press room afterwards, Stephen joked that he'd asked Conan to join him onstage.

Viewers at home were loving Conan's antics and flooded Twitter with their praise.

Comedian Wanda Sykes remarked: "Conan is giving no F's tonight!"

"Conan’s the kid who is graduating who doesn’t give a single f**k," another fan wrote.


A third posted: “#Conan is either not getting invited again or he’s just sealed his next hosting gig … #Emmys.”

Conan's talk show – which wrapped its final season earlier this year – was up for an Emmy for Outstanding Variety Talk Series.

When the award went to John Oliver, he paid tribute to Conan.

“Like many of us in this room, I was kind of rooting for Conan, so this is bittersweet,” John admitted.

“Thank you so much, Conan, for 30 years of inspiring comedy writers.”
