Conan O’Brien Smoked Weed with Seth Rogen on TV

Seth Rogen gave Conan O’Brien a joint during an interview Tuesday night and the comedians surprised their audience when they actually lit and smoked it.

Full story after the jump.

Conan O’Brien and Seth Rogen shared a joint on live television during the late-night host’s show on Tuesday.

It is the final week of ‘Conan’ before O’Brien’s retirement and the comedian had asked Rogen for advice on how he should spend his free time after decades of being a late-night host.

“I would suggest—this is going to be hilariously on-brand—try smoking a lot of weed for a long time,” Rogen said.

“I don’t smoke any weed, and that’s not a judgement,” O’Brien said. “It’s not that I have any problem with people smoking pot, I think it seems to be a fine herb … but the couple of times I tried it, nothing really happened. … But you own a weed company and … you know me, what would you want me smoking?”

To which Rogen produced a hand-rolled joint and handed it over amid cheers from the live audience.

“Don’t smoke that now — or do, this will be a great, weird show,” Rogen said.

In the video, Rogen looks surprised when O’Brien asks for a lighter and proceeds to spark the joint on-camera, in a historical first for the TBS network. O’Brien passes the joint and Rogen takes a hit, then passes it to O’Brien’s longtime sidekick Andy Richter, who partook as well.

Rogen confirmed later on Twitter that the event was “genuinely” unplanned and called it surreal.

Rogen is the co-owner of Houseplant, a cannabis brand in partnership with Canopy Growth; Rogen co-founded the brand with longtime collaborator comedian Evan Goldberg. Houseplant’s cannabis products (and accessories) are currently available in the California marketplace.
