    Default Andy Richter to Rejoin Conan O’Brien as ‘Tonight Show’ Announcer

    Andy Richter is reuniting with Conan O’Brien, signing on to serve as announcer for Mr. O’Brien’s new incarnation of “The Tonight Show.”

    NBC is expected to announce the decision later today.

    Mr. Richter and Mr. O’Brien entered the pop culture landscape together in 1993, with Mr. Richter serving as sidekick to Mr. O’Brien when Mr. O’Brien took over from David Letterman as host of NBC’s “Late Night.” Mr. Richter left “Late Night” in 2000 to focus on acting.

    On “Tonight,” Mr. Richter will not be a nightly desk-side presence as he was on “Late Night.” He will, however, participate in both live and pre-taped comedy bits.

    “Andy is one of the funniest people I know, and we’ve maintained a close friendship since he left ‘Late Night,’” Mr. O’Brien said. “We have a proven chemistry that will be an incredible asset to ‘The Tonight Show.’”

    What’s more, there’s a practical reason for Mr. Richter to join the “Tonight Show” team. “He owes me $300,” Mr. O’Brien said.

    Mr. Richter was the last non-musical guest on the final edition of “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” last week.

    Since leaving “Late Night,” Mr. Richter has been the lead in two half-hour network comedies, the critically acclaimed “Andy Richter Controls the Universe” and “Andy Barker, P.I.” He also has appeared in feature films “Talladega Nights,” “Blades of Glory,” “Semi-Pro” and “Elf.” He’ll next be seen this summer in the Fox feature “They Came From Upstairs.”

    Mr. Richter is represented by CAA and manager Tim Sarkes.

    Mr. O’Brien and Mr. Richter will make their “Tonight” debuts on June 1. Jeff Ross is the show’s executive producer.
    Great news for anyone who remembers Richter as Conan's sidekick, this is probably due to his acting career never really taking off.

    This is going to be so sweet! Not only is Conan better than ever and one hour earlier but Andy will be at his disposal for awesome comedy bits. :bow:

    ...and Leno is earlier too before the Tonight Show. Grandma will be pleased

    It'll be nice to see Conan & Andy together again. They made a great pair. Hope that he can atone for "Andy Richter Rules the Universe" and "Andy Barker P.I.". Loved him on his short stint on "Monk" though.

    Andy Richter Rules the Universe is one of the funniest shows of all time, imho.
