In a time when the role of stand up on late night television has diminished in importance to many network talk shows, Conan has never wavered in his support for developing and legendary stand up comedians. For the past decade, Conan’s shows in their various incarnations have always stood by a commitment to showcasing comics and giving a long list of performers their very first television credits.
So its fitting and pretty great that Stitcher is launching a brand new podcast showcasing the best stand up sets from Conan that covers 26 years of performances. You’ll be able to hear comedy from Rodney Dangerfield, Paul F. Tompkins, Patrice O’Neal, Maria Bamford, Norm MacDonald, Wanda Sykes, Patton Oswalt and more, and its hosted by Laurie Kilmartin, who is not only one of the great headliners in the country but also a Conan writer.
You can listen to the trailer for the new podcast which debuts October 17th only on Stitcher Premium.
Every episode will cover one year, with five performances selected from each year to highlight.
If you’re not already Stitcher Premium you can check it out for free for a month using the code CONAN.
