Conan O’Brien made history on November 17 as the first American late-night host to broadcast a show from Armenia.
O’Brien announced last month that he’d be traveling to the country with his longtime assistant Sona Movsesian, who is of Armenian descent. The two went to a market in the Armenian capital of Yerevan, where the talk show host explored local delicacies and practiced his Armenian with lines like “I want to eat your liver” and “I die on your body.”
The host herds sheep, learns a new language and lands a role on an Armenian talk show. He also visitsthe Armenian Genocide memorial with his assistant, Sona Movsesian.
