Conan O'Brien officiates gay wedding on 'Conan'
After a week of hosting his TBS show from New York, Conan O'Brien went out with a bang.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the ginger funnyman presided over a staffer’s same-sex wedding last night – on air.
“Conan” costume designer Scott Cronick married his partner, David Gorshein, on the TBS show, which taped from NYC's Beacon Theatre.
Cronick’s “favorite celebrity,” Bravo’s Andy Cohen, walked him across the stage to where Gorshein waited under a chuppah. Friends and family watched from chairs set up on stage.
As Conan officiated, the men said their vows. "Anyone in the world would be happy to wear one of your designs, but no one is possibly happier than I am to wear your ring," Gorshein said to his designer love.
"I have only one vow for you,” Cronick began. “I vow to fill your every day with so much love. Cameras or no cameras, I am here today and I am yours forever."
In the Jewish tradition, the men stomped on glasses, and Conan declared, "By the power invested in me by the state of New York and the Universal Life Church, I now pronounce you husband and husband. You can kiss the groom."
As the newlyweds kissed, confetti fell onto the stage and the song “Celebration” played.
“Scott and David are married,” announced Conan, before sending the guys off on a fake buffalo pushed by recurring character "Ted Turner.” What a wedding!
Oh, and Triumph the Insult Dog appeared on the episode, but of course, he was overshadowed by the nuptials.
O'Brien returns to L.A. next week. "Conan" airs weeknights on TBS at 11 p.m. ET.
