Conan O’Brien is one of the funniest talk-show hosts and political commentators in the world. He also takes part in hilarious skits, and more often than not, Jordan Schlansky is involved in the skits. Jordan is Conan’s associate producer and one of the leaders of Team Coco.
Jordan has gained a reputation for appearing not to enjoy Conan’s skits. Some fans wonder whether he ever smiles. He has been working with Conan for a long while, so we must assume that he enjoys what he does. This piece will look at Jordan’s career, his personal life, and his relationships.
He started working with Conan on Late Night with Conan O’Brien in 1996
Jordan and Conan started working together in 1996 on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. The pair started working closely during the writers’ strike in 2008. Jordan explained in a Reddit Q&A:
“As many of you guys know, it was during the writers’ strike in 2008, and it seemed natural to use the opportunity to incorporate circumstances that we found compelling and funny in our everyday lives.
Jordan holds Conan in high regard, and he refers to the comedian as one of the funniest people on the planet. However, he isn’t always prepared to deal with what Conan throws at him. He stated in the Reddit Q&A:
“I can assure you I had no idea he was coming when we shot that remote last week. I was innocently typing out an email when a 6’4” man and two bright lights burst into my office.”
He incorporates his personal life into the skits
Jordan and Conan have been in numerous skits together, and Jordan revealed that some of those skits touch on his personal life. Conan famously ruined Jordan’s Italian road trip and attempted to make up for it by treating Jordan to a meal at the Olive Garden in California. However, Olive Garden turned out to be too inauthentic for Jordan.
Schlansky explained that incorporating personal life into the skits makes them more authentic and entertaining. He told The Washington Post:
“At this point, anything that happens in my life I have to understand is fair game, whether I like it or not. I always try to remind myself that we work in entertainment, and that’s our business and that’s our venture. And if I can serve that cause in some small way by creating some entertainment based on the things that happen in my life, then I’m happy to have been able to contribute like that.”
One question that never seems to go away about Jordan is whether he smiles at all. His Instagram page reveals that he does smile.
Jordan is supposedly married to a lady named Emma
In a 2014 skit, Conan took Jordan to couple’s therapy, and Jordan revealed that he was engaged to a lady named Emma and that they met at a CVS drug store. In 2015, Conan threw Jordan a bachelor party, and as expected, Jordan didn’t enjoy the bachelor party.
That’s about everything that Jordan has revealed about his personal life. Unfortunately, Jordan’s social media pages don’t reveal much about his love life.
