BOSTON (AP) - Late-night talk show host Conan O'Brien visited Boston to talk about the art of comedy and how he got started in it.
O'Brien, a Brookline native, recalled that old movies sparked his interest in show business. But his parents talked him out of it, so he focused on academics and got into Harvard. His future course was set when he became involved with the Harvard Lampoon, the school’s comedy publication.
He’s also a member of the JFK library’s foundation and honorary chair of the foundation’s New Frontier Network, which works with young people to foster public service.
