Conan O'Brien: Best Wedding Officiant Ever


The late-night host made television history, and warmed our gay little hearts in the process.

Here at Out, we can safely say that this is the first time Conan O'Brien has ever made us cry. Well, not counting laugh-related tears.

On Thursday the late-night legend made history at New York's famed Beacon Theatre, officiating--quite possibly--the first same-sex wedding ever to be broadcast on television. O'Brien's longtime costume designer Scott Cronick was walked down the isle by 'Watch What Happens Live' host Andy Cohen (his "favorite celebrity") and wed in the traditional Jewish style of chuppah to his partner David Gorshein.

Watching the two exchange their vows in front of a studio audience made for an almost jaw-droppingly poignant moment in our collective day at the office here. It's just so lovely to see a personality like Conan taking the time to honor a member of his team like this.

So hats off to you, CoCo. You did good.

P.S. You owe us a box of tissues.
