Conan O'Brien Gets Apology From Kumail Nanjiani After His Last Minute 'Conan' Cancellation

Kumail Nanjiani derailed Conan O’Brien‘s talk show last night (July 11) with a last minute cancellation.

Conan‘s show only offers one celebrity guest per episode, and when Kumail cancelled a half hour before, they didn’t have time to get a new guest. Kumail got held up shooting his HBO show Silicon Valley.

Conan explained the entire situation to the audience and ended up interviewing his personal assistant of 10 years, Sona Movsesian.

“.@ConanOBrien is my comedy hero. Him and @AndyRichter are the reason I started comedy. So this clip is something I would love if it was about anybody other than me. But it’s about me, so I’m truly mortified,” Kumail tweeted on Friday (July 12).

Conan O’Brien (jokingly) got some revenge on Kumail, who was going to be on the show to promote his upcoming movie, Stuber. Instead of airing a clip from Stuber, Conan decided to air a clip from Stuber‘s box office competition, The Lion King!
