Conan Cracked Jokes During Ambulance Ride

9/26/2009 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The show must go on ... sources tell TMZ after Conan O'Brien banged his head while taping "The Tonight Show" this afternoon, he never stopped cracking jokes ... not even when he was being transported to the hospital.

Conan's injury occurred while he was filming a skit for tonight's show, our sources say he was transported by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Since Conan was unable to finish taping, NBC told us they're going to air a repeat.

UPDATE: An NBC spokesman tells us, "Conan is resting comfortably at home. He is expected to return to work on Monday."

I saw the bit on the Tonight Show awhile back where Conan was doing stunts with this stuntman guy, it didn't seem like the stuntman was giving Conan good instructions, I bet they had him back and Conan is now injured cause that guy didn't instruct him well enough.

Thank God the paramedics didn't take him to St. Joe's! Wouldn't want him dying or getting a flesh-eating bacteria!

wow..i just went to the taping of his show last week...i hope he's okay...all i can say is there were many, many security guards on his set....i've been to a lot of shows as i live in studio city, ca...and have never in my life seen so many security guards/equipment, etc....not that that has anything to do w/this accident but it's just a strange set up over there....very crazy

#10 so let me get this right...death is the "norm" for a show that "sucks" or doesn't do well?....geez "Stan" and all this time I thought it was changing the channel....

Why are some of you people so mean and callous? What if this happened to a family member of yours? Seriously. Grow up.

Perkoff you naive idiot those stunt segments with Stephen Ho are supposed to be comedy. Do you really think that NBC Universal would hire a stuntman who didn't know what he was doing? They probably rehearse those things for weeks before.

Conan's numbers are down & NBC is still trying to cover them up. He's upset his numbers are down and subliminally, he's got into this accident because it will give him time off and time to think of some new & better stuff.

Who said they're giving both Conan's show & Leno's show 12-24 months before NBC puts them both back where they were & they buy out those contracts. We'll see how Conan is on his next show next week, but I still change the channel . . . that's how it's done!

Vote with your remote control folks!

Hey #7 in this post, not a bad receipe! I'll try it later and report back.

Geez    

In the year 3000, NBC in an AEG-like move and in an effort to cover their butts, will show rehearsal footage of OBrien, the over-stressed, over-pushed and abused-for-rating star
showing how well he was during the skits rehearsals and then release
a movie about it called "This Is Hit".

In the yeeear threeeethousaaaahhnd!

"he never stopped cracking jokes ... not even when he was being transported to the hospital."

Let's hope he was funnier in the ambulance than he is on his show. On the show, he's just annoying.
