We’re thrilled to announce our new host for Adobe MAX 2020 — award winning comedian, writer and producer, Conan O’Brien. O’Brien will host the MAX keynote on October 20th, 9am PDT, at the famous Largo Theatre in Los Angeles, California, along with Adobe CEO, Shantanu Narayen and Chief Product Officer and EVP, Scott Belsky.
Conan started his path in comedy when he served twice as the president of The Harvard Lampoon. Conan went on to become a writer and producer on several television shows, including “Saturday Night Live” and “The Simpsons,” until 1993, when NBC tapped him to take over as host of “Late Night.” Since then, he’s won four Emmy Awards, six Writers Guild Awards, and the People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Television Host.” Conan has hosted two Emmy Awards, the MTV Movie Awards, and performed at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner for two presidents. In 2010, his live comedy tour was the subject of the documentary “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop,” and led to a second multi-city stand-up tour in 2018.
In 2015, O’Brien became the longest-working current late-night talk show host in the U. S., celebrating 25 years in 2018. He is currently helming the show “CONAN,” now in its 10th season on TBS. His Emmy award winning “CONAN: Without Borders” series has visited 13 countries and his podcast “Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend” currently has over 140 million downloads since it launched in 2018. With more than 40,000 ratings and reviews on iTunes, the show maintains an almost perfect 5-star average and was named by Time, Apple Podcasts and Esquire (U.K.) as one of the “10 Best Podcasts of 2019.”
