Amazing. However, I can only imagine the amount of crap the guys at Consolidated gave him when they saw this.

Research indicates it was 2000.

Wow that is really funny. I wonder if Tom wrote for Conan?

i'm not sure if this has been said anywhere but both Tom and Terrie T (along with lots of other NYC funny people) are in the audience during the Hong Kong Danger Duo's performance in the The Saigon Suicide Squad episode of the UCB TV show.

clip here:

you can see them at 1:57. i don't know how to post an image.

this is probably pretty common knowledge?

Who am I thinking of that was in the audience of the old VH1 Zach Galifianakis show, was that Tom?

Maybe he hired him because Conan was a fan of Rock Rot and Rule.

Found an interview where Tom talks about this.

How were you involved with Late Night with Conan O’Brien?

Tom: (Late Night writer) Andy Blitz created this boy band on the show, Dudez A-Plenti, and was like “We’re bringing them back, I want you to be the craft service guy, working the bagel station,” and I was like “Ok, I’ll do that.” [Laughing] I go, they have the boy band in there, and Conan just starts doing his thing; I’ve never seen anyone think as fast as him. It was mind-boggling watching how he worked in that capacity.

Then there was a moment where the awesome wardrobe lady, who was this terrible monster who’s name I don’t even know, [Laughing] sees me and goes “Oh, you’re not that fat,” like I’m supposed to be some Walter Hudson, rolling in. And then they’re like “all right, for this next thing we’re going to need you to take your shirt off,” and I was like “No, I’m not doing it.” “Well, we need you to do it.” “Well, then you made a mistake, because no one said anything about me taking my shirt off, and I’m not taking my shirt off at all.” Absolutely not, and I did not. But that horrible woman was like [Grouchy voice] “You’re not as fat as I thought you were going to be.” It’s unbelievable that humans can say that to other people, but she had no problem.
