After Andy Richter’s appearance on Conan O’Brien’s last episode of Late Night, I was talking to a friend about how great their chemistry was together. A few days later, Andy Richter was announced as the new announcer for Conan’s Tonight Show. The first episode will air June 1st.
NBC says Andy Richter and Conan O’Brien will be back together again on late-night TV.
Richter, who worked with O’Brien for seven years on NBC’s “Late Night,” will become the “Tonight” show announcer when O’Brien takes over from Jay Lenoas host in June. NBC said Richter also will take part in comedy bits.
O’Brien called Richter a friend and one of the funniest people he knows, but couldn’t resist a joke: O’Brien said he’s looking forward to their reunion because Richter owes him $300.
After leaving “Late Night” in 2000, Richter starred in the TV series “Andy Richter Controls the Universe” and “Andy Barker, P.I.,” and appeared in “Talladega Nights,” “Blades of Glory” and other movies.
Great addition to the Tonight Show.
