Elizabeth Ann “Liza” Powel first met O’Brien in 2000, when she participated on Late Night with Conan O’Brien in an advertisement comedy featuring Hilton Furniture and Foote, Cone & Belding, where she served as a senior copywriter.

Before their 2002 wedding in Powel’s hometown of Seattle, the pair dated for about 18 months. O’Brien, as well as Powel, has two children: a girl, Neve born in 2003, as well as a son, Beckett born in 2005.

O’Brien frequently proclaims his Irish Catholic ancestry. On an episode of Inside the Actors Studio in 2009, he revealed that relatives from both sides of his family immigrated to America from Ireland beginning in the 1850s, marrying only other Irish Catholics and that his ancestry is therefore 100% Irish Catholic.

A decade later, his fully homogeneous background was proved by a DNA test, which he presented on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. O’Brien stated that is totally derived from one ethnic group is highly unusual, and that his doctor was “struck.”

He has been a registered Democrat having cast his first presidential vote for Walter Mondale in 1984. On the political spectrum, he believes himself to be moderate. Labels Are For Jars was developed by O’Brien and his buddy and old Harvard dormmate Father Paul B. O’Brien. In 2006, he also assisted in the establishment of the Cor Unum meal facility.

Beginning in September 2006, O’Brien was harassed by Father David Ajemian of the Archdiocese of Boston, who sent O’Brien letters signed as “your priest stalker” despite several warnings to desist. Before being detained, Ajemian issued death threats to O’Brien and attempted to force his way into a Late Night filming. Ajemian pled guilty to stalking on April 8, 2008, and was eventually laicized.

After his program was put on hold for two months due to a Writers Guild of America strike, he reemerged on late-night TV in January 2008, growing a beard that guest Tom Brokaw described as trying to make him seem like “a draught dodger from the Civil War.”

O’Brien grew a beard again after leaving The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien in 2010, which he retained until May 2011, when it was partially shaved on the production of Conan by Will Ferrell and totally removed off-screen by a professional barber. O’Brien spent $10.5 million buying a house in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California, in preparation for his transfer from New York City to anchor The Tonight Show at Universal Studios Hollywood in 2009.

He transported his 1992 Ford Taurus SHO to California as part of a long-running prank, displaying it on the first episodes of The Tonight Show with Conan. Dartmouth College bestowed an honorary Doctor of Arts degree to O’Brien on June 12, 2011. He presented the commencement speech in addition to receiving the honorary degree.

On October 21, 2011, O’Brien was ordained as a priest by the Universal Life Church Monastery, allowing him to perform a same-sex wedding while filming a week’s worth of episodes in New York, one of the few places in the US where homosexual marriage was legal at the time.

On November 3, 2011, a member of O’Brien’s staff married his partner on the stage of the Beacon Theatre, and the ceremony was televised on Conan. The same-sex marriage ceremony was the first to be broadcast on late-night television in the United States.

O’Brien traveled to Los Angeles after completing Harvard, where he entered the writing crew of HBO’s “Not Necessarily the News.” He also participated in improvisational ensembles such as the Groundlings in his own time. In January 1988, he entered the “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) writing staff and stayed for three years.

In 1989, he as well as fellow SNL writers got an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy or Variety Series. He appears as an extra in SNL routines on occasion, notably as a doorman in a sketch with Tom Hanks. During this period, he also co-wrote the broadcast pilot for “Lookwell,” starring Adam West, with Robert Smigel. The pilot aired on NBC in 1991, but the network did not pick it up. He left SNL in 1991 after the Lookwell pilot failed and his contract was terminated.

He was then given a writing gig for the animated comedy “The Simpsons,” a much sought-after uncommon chance. From 1991 until 1993, he worked as a writer and producer for “The Simpsons,” creating some of the series’ most famous episodes, including “Marge vs. the Monorail” and “Homer Goes to College.” Meanwhile, David Letterman was about to leave the talk program “Late Night,” thus executive producer Lorne Michaels began looking for a replacement.

He contacted O’Brien to create, but O’Brien’s representative pointed out that he wanted to appear, not simply produce and write. In April 1993, O’Brien was chosen as the next “Late Night” presenter after a test audition. However, he still has an agreement with Fox to appear on “The Simpsons,” so O’Brien and NBC’s “Late Night” network shared the expense of getting him out of it.

“Late Night featuring Conan O’Brien” debuted on September 13, 1993, to mixed reviews from reviewers. Things were so bad that NBC threatened O’Brien with a weekly service agreement, and interns were forced to fill vacant seats in the crowd. However, things eventually changed, and the show rose in popularity.

Beginning in 1996, the show’s writing staff, along with O’Brien himself, would be shortlisted for the Emmy Prize for Best Writing in a Comedy or Variety Series on an annual basis, eventually winning the prize for the first and only time in 2007.

They would also win multiple Writers Guild Awards for Best Writing in a Comedy/Variety Series. By October 2005, the show had amassed an average audience of 2.5 million people. On February 20, 2009, “Late Night” broadcast its last episode, concluding O’Brien’s 15-year career with the show.

Following that, O’Brien took over “The Tonight Show” from Jay Leno, a post he held for seven months throughout 2009 and 2010. A combination of low ratings for O’Brien as well as Jay Leno in his new prime time slot led to Leno’s return to late night and “The Tonight Show” in 2010. The feud involving O’Brien and NBC was dubbed the “Tonight Show controversy.”

NBC Settlement

When Conan departed NBC, he was reportedly granted a $32.5 million settlement. The channel also agreed to provide $12 million to its employees. Following his departure from NBC, O’Brien took a break from television and went on a 30-

city live tour titled “The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour” in 2010. On the first day of his tour, he also unveiled his new program on TBS. “Conan” debuted on November 8, 2010, and he is still hosting it now, with the show extended through 2022.

On “Conan,” O’Brien has had numerous significant events, including being the first American television celebrity in more than fifty years to shoot in Cuba, as well as filming at the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) (and technically North Korea, because he stepped across the border line at the DMZ).

When the transfer did not go as anticipated, the network chose to reinstall Leno in his previous role. Conan was given $45 million as a reward for his trouble.
