Andy Richter rejoins Conan O'Brien for TBS show
Longtime (and long gone) sidekick Andy Richter will be returning to his rightful spot at Conan O'Brien's side when O'Brien makes his TBS debut on Nov. 8.
In a press release, TBS touted the pair's chemistry:
A collaboration that began Sept. 13, 1993, O’Brien and Richter have developed a comedic chemistry that few performers have achieved. Through two late-night franchises and the recently concluded The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour, Richter has been a consistent asset to O’Brien.
The release continues with some appropriately flip quotes from Richter:
"I'm thrilled to be going back to work with Conan, and very excited to start a whole new venture on TBS. However, I am mostly looking forward to getting out of the house again.”
"This decision was made without my authority. I will get to the bottom of this."
Richter joined O'Brien during his short-lived tenure at "The Tonight Show," but in a limited role as "announcer."
