Nobody has had a bigger impact on Conan in a shorter amount of time than Kevin Hart. The comedian is responsible for some of the most memorable moments in the show’s recent history and would likely do the same on “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend.”
If you look at the 15 most popular clips on Team Coco’s YouTube channel, you’ll see that four of them feature Kevin Hart. There are field pieces like the famous Lyft ride with Ice Cube or teaching one of Conan O’Brien’s staff members how to drive. There is also an in studio interview where Hart hilariously rips on Will Ferrell.
It is clear that there is some comedy chemistry between O’Brien and Hart. The two have shown that they know how to riff off of one another and where they can take their back-and-forth banter. The podcast would be a perfect way to give fans even more of that.
Hart has also become one of the hardest working comedians in all of show business. O’Brien has spoken before on the podcast about his appreciation for those who put in the work to build something. Hart is definitely an example of that ambition and dedication, making for another reason he’s a guest we want to see on the podcast in 2020.
