Clips From Last Night: Conan O'Brien on his favorite TV moment and falling in love with his wife

On Monday evening, Piers Morgan welcomed Conan O'Brien to the program for an exclusive face to face conversation. The comedian and television host, who rarely does on camera interviews, spoke candidly about his family, his career, and the topic of "proper love."

As part of his hour-long visit with the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host, O'Brien revealed that his favorite television moment came as he participated in an on-location "remote" sketch involving community baseball players reenacting a game out of the late 19th century, complete with rules from that day, and period-era uniforms and facial hair:

"So I went out and put on the mustache and spoke in that sort of turn of century baseball. It was so me," admitted the guest. "It only lasted a few minutes, but it's me with the big mustache and acting like a complete ass. That's my favorite thing to do. It was right in my wheelhouse, so to speak. Very silly, but also had these great magical moments in it."

Married now for 10 years, O'Brien also used Monday's platform to reveal details of falling in love on television, as he met his wife Liza while working as the "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" host:

"Somewhere in the vault at NBC there's footage of me literally falling for my wife on camera," he admitted.

Asked if he is a romantic, the Bostonian confessed to the Brit that "deep, deep down, under layers and layers of repression and ham, and layers of carbohydrates, there's a romantic guy down there."

"But man is that covered up," he insisted. "It's a Slim Jim of romance with massive insulation layers of insecurity and self-loathing wrapped around it."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interview, as the two-time Emmy Award winner further reveals personal moments from his own life, and shares insight on his craft and professional passions.
