'Conan' Accused of Stealing Jokes on Twitter, Andy Richter Reacts to Lawsuit

29 July 2015 5:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Put down that yo mama joke -- it belongs to someone else and you could be sued for lifting it!

Conan O'Brien's team is being sued for allegedly stealing four jokes from a freelance comedy writer who claims he posted them to his blog and Twitter before they appeared on "Conan." Named in Robert "Alex" Kaseberg's copyright infringement lawsuit are Conaco, TBS, Time Warner, Conan O'Brien, "Conan" executive producer Jeff Ross, and head writer Mike Sweeney. The suit details the four jokes he claims were stolen, along with their counterparts on air.

Here's one joke, which he claims he published on or around January 14:

A Delta flight this week took off from Cleveland to New York with just two passengers. And they fought over control of the armrest the entire flight."

After he posted that joke, he claims, this joke appeared in the "Conan" monologue:

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan Continue to Be the Perfect Couple—See Their Best Live! Moments!

28 July 2015 5:12 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

These two. Every so often, a perfectly matched pair enters our mortal orbit. You know, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford, Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter, Crockett and Tubbs, Milo and Otis... And we can count Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan among the chosen duos! We were reminded of how it's the little things (and facial expressions) that matter earlier today when Strahan accidentally gave away a trip because he jumped the gun with a call-in contestant. The moment could have been really awkward, but... Oh heck, it was really awkward, and the fact that Ripa was there to make him feel both better and just a little bit more like a »

Hacker Threat to Leak Information on Ashley Madison’s Cheaters Sparks Social Media Frenzy

20 July 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

While hackers are threatening to unleash customer data from adultery dating service Ashley Madison, Hollywood stars, comedians and media personalities are unleashing their best jokes on Twitter. Andy Richter, Ike Barinholtz and Rob Delaney are among the funny people doing what they do best by having fun with what could very well be a serious issue for 37 million Ashley Madison users. “Forget Ashley Madison, I’m worried they’ll hack! If they find out I’m not a real farmer I’ll be ruined,” the “Conan” sidekick tweeted on Monday. Also read: 11 Sony Hack Shockers From Explosive Fortune »

Bob's Burgers Cast Spoils 100th Episode: 'Someone's Stuck to a Toilet'

16 July 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Bob’s Burgers is taking toilet humor to a whole new level in Season 6.

While being Q&A’d at TVLine’s Comic-Con suite last weekend, co-star Kristen Schaal revealed the plot — or at the very least a key element — of the ‘toon’s upcoming 100th episode, telling Michael Ausiello, “Someone gets stuck to a toilet.” (Spoiler Alert: She’s not kidding.)

Best of Late Night TV: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler Play True Confessions; LeBron James' Faceketball

15 July 2015 12:10 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"The Tonight Show" had too many cool things going on Tuesday night, it almost would've been better to spread them out. "Trainwreck" star LeBron James -- who also plays some basketball in his free time -- played "Faceketball" with Jimmy Fallon. They both wore net headbands and shot balls at each other's faces. (!) You have to see LeBron's expression when Jimmy scores points on him. Priceless. That was awesome enough, but wait! The incomparable team of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (love the new hair) also played True Confessions with Jimmy, in a reunion of former SNL Weekend Update co-anchors. (Seth Meyers, you should've jumped in.) Amy, Tina »

Watch Conan O'Brien Ride the Fury Road to Comic-Con

9 July 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Everyone who's anyone is heading to San Diego for Comic-Con it seems, and no wonder! It's a major pop culture event that draws folks obsessed with comics, movies, and television shows that reflect the nerdy, geeky nation in which we all now live. And even if you're not able to attend in person, there are plenty of ways you can watch, listen, and share in the event via the internet. Conan O'Brien, however, decided that he could not miss attending in person, so he accepted an invitation from his sidekick Andy Richter to drive to San Diego rather than take the train. The result was captured for posterity, as Conan tips his hat -- and his flame-throwing guiter -- to George Miller's awesome Mad Max: Fury Road, taking along his usual musical accompanists Jimmy...

9 July 2015 10:29 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Conan O'Brien hit the "Fury Road" when taking his late-night show to San Diego for Comic-Con on Wednesday.

The host paid tribute to May's smash "Mad Max" sequel with a full recreation of the dystopian flick's most memorable sequence, and sidekick Andy Richter and the Basic Cable band were along for the ride.

Conan and his crew went "Mad" all right, hopping on their makeshift War Rig in full character regalia for their trip to the pop culture bonanza. Key props, including the Doof Warrior's flame-throwing guitar and Immortan Joe's disturbing face mask, gave the sketch impressive ...

TBS' Conan is broadcasting from San Diego this week for this year's Comic-Con (a first for a late-night talk show), and things kicked off last night with this not mediocre Mad Max: Fury Road-style cold opener which sees the host taking on the role of Doof Warrior, also known as "that crazy dude with the flame-throwing guitar."

Conan Channels Mad Max: Fury Road on the Way to Comic-Con

9 July 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

When TBS' Conan comes to Comic-Con, it comes in style. This year was no exception as Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter eschewed a quick train ride from Los Angeles to San Diego in favor of taking the Fury Road. Their Mad Max-inspired road trip saw Richter channeling Immortan Joe as a coffee-swilling, spray paint-huffing driver, with Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band supplying the tunes from the rear of a tricked out deuce and a half. Conan, meanwhile, took to the open air on the open road as the Doof Warrior, furiously shredding through screeching guitar licks as flames spew out of the end of his instrument, occasionally roasting some road (hot) dogs along the way. Classic Conan. Check the skit out for yourself below, along with Conan's opening for the Comic-Con crowd: Conan Highlight: Conan and Andy are driving to San Diego for a week of shows, »

Watch Conan O'Brien's incredible Mad Max-inspired Comic-Con entrance

9 July 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Conan O'Brien is making a bid to be the king of this year's Comic-Con with four special episodes of his late night talk show broadcasting straight from the geek gathering in San Diego.

Not only that, but the TV host is moderating the panel for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, the cast's last ever appearance together at Comic-Con.

Conan needed to arrive in San Diego in some style - and he did just that, suiting up to play the flamethrowier guitarist from Mad Max: Fury Road.

Not only that, but Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band dressed up as the War Boys and sidekick Andy Richter filled the role of Immortan Joe.

We might be missing a Furiosa, but this is anything but mediocre.

Watch Conan O'Brien Channel 'Mad Max' for Comic-Con Video

9 July 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Conan O'Brien headed south to San Diego on Wednesday to begin a week of Conan tapings at Comic-Con, cruising down Interstate 5 in style as the guitar-wielding Doof Warrior from Mad Max: Fury Road.

With Andy Richter, dressed as Immortan Joe, guiding the rig, and Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band pounding a set of drums on the back as War Boys, O'Brien swung on top of the caravan and kicked out the vicious riffs. The barrage of noise, however, caused Richter to spill his coffee and soon the late »

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Parodied by Conan O’Brien on Road Trip to San Diego Comic-Con (Video)

9 July 2015 7:14 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter are ready for Comic-Con — and fans had better get out of their way. The TBS late-night duo spoofed “Mad Max: Fury Road” for their Wednesday night cold open, with the sidekick driving his host from Burbank to San Diego. Their vehicle of choice, however, was something straight out of a horror movie — literally. With a scary semi truck decked out with weaponry, rust and speakers, driver Richter donned the Hugh Keays-Byrne mask (which made it hard to drink his coffee), while O’Brien was tethered to the roof, jamming on a flame-throwing guitar (that also grilled. »

Conan O'Brien Arrives at Comic-Con With Andy Richter Mad Max Style—Watch Now!

9 July 2015 6:56 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Conan O'Brien had to get to San Diego Comic-Con Wednesday, so he and Andy Richter took the only road they thought to take: Fury Road. The late-night talk show host, dressed as The Doof Warrior (it wouldn't be Comic-Con without cosplay!), hitched a ride on Mad Max's War Rig, driven by Richter, and both made their way to the annual festival to spend a week hosting shows from the convention. Richter, who dressed as Immortan Joe, led the group south, but not all went as planned. O'Brien, Richter and the Basic Cable Band, who was DJing their road trip with some serious beats, ended up getting making a wrong turn somewhere. Coffee in hand, Richter and O'Brien tried to figure out what caused them to lose »

"Jurassic World" and "Furious 7" may have smashed the box office, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" once again showed Marvel has no signs of slowing down, but if you ask most people what their favorite movie of the summer has been so far, the answer is "Mad Max: Fury Road."

Best of Late Night TV: Conan O'Brien's Mad Max Tribute

9 July 2015 2:48 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Conan O'Brien is officially our favorite person ever (actually, was this ever up for debate?). The Late Night host and his side-kick, Andy Richter, hit up San Diego Comic-Con in true style -- by recreating "Mad Max: Fury Road" for the show's opening segment. Obviously, Conan starred as The Doof Warrior, who's shredding session was interrupted by Andy getting lost on the way to San Diego. Understandable.

Conan O'Brien Tackles 'Mad Max' for Comic-Con Road Trip

8 July 2015 10:19 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

What a lovely day! Instead of merely hopping on a bus or driving himself, Conan O'Brien arrived in style at San Diego Comic-Con this year. In honor of his show filming at the annual pop culture convention all weekend long, the late night host made a tribute to one of the most exhilarating films of the year: "Mad Max: Fury Road." The intro for Wednesday's show featured Andy Richter dressing up as bad guy Immortan Joe from the Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron flick, as he drove a giant truck through a desert wasteland. As for Conan, he was dressed in a red onesie and sported wild hair as he played a fire-spitting guitar. It was all sorts of epic ... until the music kept Andy from hearing the navigation system.
