They say leprechauns bring good luck—time will tell if a comedian appearing as a perpetually stripping leprechaun can serve the same purpose.
Conan O'Brien will test that theory when he welcomes longtime friend of Late Night Will Ferrell as the first guest on the brand-spanking new edition of The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien June 1.
Ferrell was a surprise special guest on O'Brien's final Late Night back in February and was a frequent guest on the old show.
O'Brien's Tonight Show reign will also be ushered in with help from initial musical guest Pearl Jam.
The host himself will pay forward the favor May 29, when he will serve as the final guest for soon-to-be predecessor Jay Leno, when the chinned one signs off from the Tonight Show.
