Though he has not always tasted success or victory, he has remained his own man. His talent and ability to make people laugh has brought him fame, but it is the reservoir of goodwill he has built up by being a genuinely nice guy to close friends and fans alike that has enabled him to emerege, even from his setbacks, a brighter star than ever.

Davis said, "Our goal is to show the little-known events and influences that resulted in Conan O'Brien becoming the superstar he is today, almost two decades after bursting on the national scene.

"Conan O'Brien is America's Sweetheart. He won our hearts by being gracious and open after public turmoil fell on him. But he didn't let it get him down. He kept telling jokes, kept being funny, and kept being who he always was: someone who made us laugh."
