Conan O’Brien was taping the Monday episode of his talkshow when news broke that Robin Williams had been found dead in his California home.
After having the news fed through to him he broke it to his studio audience and guests, including TMNT star Will Arnett – who has previously worked with Robin.
When he announced the news, members of his audience gasp. “I’m sorry to anyone in our studio audience that I’m breaking this news,” Conan said. “This is absolutely shocking and horrifying.”
