Plus, Conan responds to a listener voicemail about an award that was named after him.

Literally moments before Bob started to talk about laughter being essential and the importance of comedy, I was marveling to myself how much of a role Conan/Conan's shows/Conan's podcasts have played on my road to mental health. In a very real and tangible way Conan has helped. I NEVER fail to uproariously laugh everytime I hear him regardless of where my head is at. This episode changed my brain chemistry from laughing so hard. Thank you to Bob Newhart for his sublime, perfect comedy, and to Conan for consistently providing a level of comedy that supercedes. This was one of my favourite episodes 😂💗
