The leafy red pompadoured comedian has been a TV talk show hosted for over 25 years now, which means that Conan Brien has interviewed over 12,000 guests in his own estimation. So it would have been fair to assume choosing one as its worst guest would ever be a challenge for Brien.
Appeared, it was easy.
Brien recently appeared on the actor Dax Shepard’s podcast “Armchair Expert.” Shepard remembers her own bad look at the Briens show, but Conan assured him that he is not even in the top ten worst guests.
When he asked to name one or two guests, he thought he was even worse. Later that night hosted controversial and eccentric director Abel Ferrara.
Brien Sa Ferrara, whose films include “Bad Lieutenant” and “Dangerous Game”, ran out of the NBC building in New York just before its planned 1996 appearance. Visa’s staff had to pull him back.
“He came on camera against his will,” said Brien. “And then came out, and I think he started shouting at me.”
Brien said that Ferrara might have been drunk, but added that he could not be sure. Even though the chaotic interview on “Late Night with Conan OBrien” ended up being what the values call “compellevision” – a trawler that you can not look away from. 16 PHOTO
