Conan O’Brien Says His New Late Night Set Was Burglarized

During Monday’s broadcast of Conan, Conan O’Brien, who had set up his show at Los Angeles’s Coronet nightclub, revealed that “someone broke into our little theater and took some of our equipment.”

“We got robbed, Andy,” he told Andy Richter. “Robbed!”

“And whoever broke in here had to stare at 350 cardboard cutouts of exuberant fans in the eyes and say, ‘Hey, don’t mind me. I’m going to steal some s—,'” he continued, referencing to the faux audience his crew had set up in stands.

According to reports, the culprit made off with several laptops used to conduct Zoom interviews and the show’s wooden clapperboard, a device that helps in the synchronizing of picture and audio.

“That’s the lowest. I can’t think of anything lower,” he remarked after he was informed of what was stolen from the set. “Okay, the laptops — fine. [But] you took the slate? That’s crazy.”
