I just love this guy.  I find him very passionate which overshadows the lack of acting skills.

For those of you who don't know what I am talking about,

Late Night with Conan O'Brien is an American late night television talk show on NBC featuring varied comedic material and celebrity interviews.  In September 1993, O'Brien replaced David Letterman, long time host of the Late Night with David Letterman, when Letterman left NBC to host the Late Show with David Letterman on CBS. Since Letterman's new program was similar to his NBC show, many sources consider O'Brien's program to be a new and separate entity, although it is technically a continuation of Letterman's Late Night.O'Brien's comic style was influenced greatly by the absurdist farce of Monty Python and the physical comedy and wild vocalizing of Robin Williams. Like his Late Night predecessor, David Letterman, O'Brien's humor also has a streak of biting sarcasm. O'Brien often playfully chides his audience for underwhelming or overly enthusiastic response to his jokes.

The show's first three years under O'Brien were generally considered mediocre, but by 1996 he had found his comic voice and it quickly returned to the cult status it had enjoyed under Letterman's tenure.
