Conan’s stunning DNA test results
In 2019, O’Brien appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Stephen Colbert, like O’Brien, has Irish ancestry and has discussed it on his show. But as science proved, Colbert can’t quite match O’Brien when it comes to how Irish he is.
O’Brien recalls how his DNA report shocked his doctor by revealing that he is in fact 100% Irish. On the surface, that isn’t all that hard to believe when you hear the name “Conan O’Brien” and see the freckled redhead. But according to O’Brien’s doctor, that pure-blooded Irishness may be the result of inbreeding.
No stranger to self-deprecation, O’Brien uses this fact for even more comedy. Stephen Colbert’s reaction adds to the hilarity as O’Brien can firmly claim the title as The Most Irish late night host.
Conan O’Brien’s story may not be the best endorsement for 23 & Me. Some people may be worried about finding an equally stunning discovery if they submit their DNA for testing. But O’Brien certainly seems to be looking at the bright side of things. His 100% Irish genes blessed him with the perfect body to go along with his comedy.
