Andy Richter's Comeback to Chelsea Handler's Fat Joke Is Absolutely Amazing—Watch

22 October 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

While many may be weary of messing with Chelsea Handler (after all, she loves pulling pranks on her pals), it turns out, the real celeb we should be looking out for is Andy Richter.  The 39-year-old comedienne recently appeared on Conan where she attempted to poke fun at Conan's sidekick, but unfortunately for Handler (and lucky for us all), Richter was ready with a perfect comeback.  Handler was addressing the video that made the Internet rounds where Jason Biggs is urinating on her as she swims in the ocean, which prompted the TV personality to ask both Conan and Richter if they enjoy the ocean.  "I like the ocean very »

Andy Richter Zings Back At Chelsea Handler After Fat Joke

21 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Chelsea Handler and Andy Richter were both guests on Conan O’Brien’s late night show when Richter came up with a perfect comeback for one of Handler’s barbs.

Chelsea Handler vs. Andy Richter

The segment started with Conan asking Handler about the viral Vine of Jason Biggs peeing on her off the side of a boat, which was appropriately captioned by Biggs’ wife Jenny Mollen, “For everyone who’s ever wanted to pee on @chelseahandler."

Turning to Richter, Handler asked, “Do you float a lot in the ocean?” At first Richter seemed taken aback by the standup comedian’s bit of fat-shaming, but quickly recovered to retort, “Sure. What, do you sink? Might be that cast-iron heart.”

Proving that she can both dish it out and take it, Handler burst out into laughter right alongside Richter and O'Brien, appreciating the joke made at her own expense.

Love is shaving your partner's nether regions - at least, according to Dax Shepard. The actor opened up about how he prepared to bare his butt in This Is Where I Leave You during a Monday night appearance on Conan. As it turns out, the nude scene's success is all thanks to some awkward grooming by his wife, Kristen Bell. "While I don't have a lot of hair on the cheeks, they're nice, you know, there's an ample amount ... there's a forest in the valley," Shepard said, with some delicate prompting from Andy Richter. "And my fear, my deep, deep fear, »

Dax Shepard tells Conan about the time Kristen Bell shaved his butt

14 October 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Dax Shepard went into some Magic Mike mode to prepare for his nude scene in This Is Where I Leave You. On Monday night, Dax Shepard went on Conan to talk about suffering from "tall white guy syndrome," which Shepard explains is "where your back just goes into your legs. There's really no butt cheeks there." To prepare for filming in the buff, Shepard pumped up his posterior with lunges and squats, but that wasn't the only booty issue he was worried about. Shepard was self-conscious about the hair between the cheeks, which Andy Richter euphemistically referred to as "a forest in the valley. »

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.

Dax Shepard was on "Conan" Monday night (October 13), and you have to watch his talk about shaving his butt. Conan O'Brien asked about Dax's graphic full nude scene in "This Is Where I Leave You." Was it nerve-racking? Dax said he and Conan suffer from tall white guy syndrome - they have no butt cheeks. He did a lot of lunges and squats to prepare his butt. Dax said he doesn't have any hair on his butt cheeks but - as Andy Richter helpfully put it - "there's a forest in the valley." Dax added that his deep fear was that it would look like a werewolf trying to escape his butt crack. »

If you happen to see the film “This Is Where I Leave You” and find yourself appreciative that Dax Shepard doesn't have a werewolf trying to escape from between his cheeks during his nude scene, just know that someone paid a very high price for that. Shepard appeared on “Conan” where he revealed that he subjected his poor wife, Kristen Bell, to the task of trimming the “forest in the valley,” as Andy Richter put it. He was concerned that he might be too hairy in one particular area during the scene. See video: Dax Shepard Says He Would Totally Have an. »

Jeff Tweedy, frontman for the ultimate dad rock band Wilco, has taken the dad-ness even further with his new project Tweedy. It's a collaboration with his son, Spencer Tweedy, and the duo have dropped their debut album, Sukierae.

Michael Shannon, Nick Offerman, soul singer Mavis Staples, famed music engineer Steve Albini, Chance the Rapper, John Hodgeman, Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter, all pop up in this short film/video that finds Jeff and Spencer going door to door to sell their record after a depressing meeting with "Big Record Label." Yep, it's a music industry spoof, but a pretty light one at that. And if you can call in these kinds of favors, why not? Check it out below. [HitFix] »

Michael Shannon, Conan O'Brien and more go bananas in new Jeff Tweedy video

26 September 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In a alternate universe, bands sign to labels with overlords who enlist artistic services to line their own pockets. Dystopia! Tyranny! Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer -- who go by the name Tweedy for new album "Sukierae" -- made a decidedly big talent video for their song "Low Key." Comedian and "Parks & Rec" actor Nick Offerman directed stars like John Hodgeman, Michael Shannon, Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter, Tweedy collaborator Mavis Staples, Chicagoans Steve Albini, Chance the Rapper and more. The record company Neverland warps with a muzak version of the Tweedy-penned song, which then gives way to a Wes Andersonian odyssey of selling the vinyl version of "Sukierae" door-to-door in the Tweedy hometown. Some observations: 1. Why can't we all get paid in bags of money. 2. Think the "Get Happy" workshop is pointing out the finer merits of Pharrell's "Happy?" Happiness is in you, Tweedys. 3. Steve Albini probably doesn't »

O'Brien said a lot of women on his staff pressured the host to ask him about his package. "I guess it's a thing that women are talking about," O'Brien said. "You must address the flopping schlong!" Andy Richter demanded. O'Brien pressured Theroux into revealing details. Was there enhancement? A clock? What is the deal with those scenes?!

13 August 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

When Conan O’Brien paid tribute to Robin Williams on his show Monday night, the talk show host had just learned that the famed comedian had passed away and was likely the first to break the news to some of his studio audience. For Tuesday’s show, O’Brien took some time to give Williams a proper tribute.

With co-host Andy Richter, O’Brien showed a selection of clips from the times he’d interviewed Williams—and shared a story about a ridiculous Irish-themed bicycle the actor had bought him to cheer him up after O’Brien lost The Tonight Show »

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.

Even though the late night talk shows air (appropriately enough) late at night, some of the Monday shows were already taped by the time the news of Robin Williams' death came out, so a few hosts chose the Tuesday, August 12 show to pay tribute. (David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel are on a break and didn't have new shows last night.) Here are tributes from Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, and (again) Conan O'Brien. Conan was really the only one to address Robin's death on Monday night, but he and Andy Richter also sat down Tuesday to share Robin memories. Conan said Robin was "the best talk show guest in the world, »
