WATCH: Conan O’Brien’s Tribute To Garry Shandling

There have been a number of tributes from the comedic world in response to the sudden passing of Garry Shandling, and considering he got his start as a comedic writer, Conan O’Brien’s tribute was equal parts touching and hilarious.

At the top of last night’s episode, Conan recalled how Garry helped him in the aftermath of his run as the host of The Tonight Show and played a clip of he and Garry when he hosed the Emmy Awards in 2006.

As an added bonus, Conan played a clip from an old episode of Late Night With Conan O’Brien showing Garry doing what he did best: Being hilarious.
