Tonight at 11PM, Conan O’Brien will re-enter the late-night talk show fray with his former studio, stage, and TV collaborator Jack White in tow as the first musical guest on TBS’ Conan. White’s many memorable appearances on Coco’s Late Night, not to mention drumming with the Dead Weather on the short-lived Tonight Show run, are reason enough to be on the edge of your seat tonight, but it’s the pair’s post-Tonight Show bromance that will more likely inform/ensure the awesomeness of their basic cable premiere, I’d say.
Video of the next Coco-White affair will be promptly posted here once available, but until then, let’s re-watch 6 clips spanning Jack’s past Conan gigs over the last decade for some context.
