33a6c78d4d5683688ddfa3e1d5994944_400x400“It is nice to write a story and actually write something that’s more than seven words.”

Novelist, comic, and head monologue writer for the late night show Conan, Brian Kiley tells us how a joke writer ended up writing a novel. Brian talks about his path from writing jokes as a teenager to becoming a working standup comic to getting a job writing for Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Brian talks about being a dad to a college student and a high school student. Plus, Brian talks about largely working clean as a comic but not always knowing if he has a choice.

“My jokes have kind of morphed from ‘my wife doesn’t want to have sex with me’ to ‘my wife is trying to murder me.”
