Conan O’Brien Thwarted Russian Mobsters With Sterling Archer

Conan O’Brien transformed into a cartoon Tuesday night with none other than Sterling Archer, becoming the first late-night host to moonlight as a deadly spy and fight off a gang of Russian mobsters (that we know of). If this sounds like a bad ‘shroom trip, that’s good because it kind of plays like one. For fans of Archer, O’Brien’s character comes across as a mash-up of Cyril Figgis and Dr. Krieger who doesn’t quite grasp the show’s recurring jokes, in the best way. For those unfamiliar with the show, don’t worry — it’s still a treat to see animated Conan O’Brien talk about Tinder, interns, and handguns.
