Conan O’Brien found out about Robin Williams’ death while he was taping that evening’s show, and broke the news to a stunned audience.
It’s so obvious that both Conan and Will Arnett are trying to process the information, like all of us are right now, and that hurts even more. I really appreciate his very simple tribute and thanks. It feels raw and… more meaningful, even though he kind of trips over his words and is not quite sure what to say. And I think that pretty much sums it up- how speechless we are about the whole thing.
