American talk show host. In the Chicago Tribune (4/5/93) it mentioned "despite reports that he stands anywhere from 6-foot-5 to 6-foot-8, 'I'm not radioactive. I'm not growing out of control. I'm 6-4.'"

Comment on the Height of Conan O'Brien

Canson said on 24/Nov/15

He is not anything close to 6'5 without shoes. His 6'4 after seeing him with guys like Liam neeson and Joe mangienello is even shaky. Even less so with Charles Barkley or Kobe Bryant who aren't out of the 6'4 range themselves. He is 6'3 barefoot tops!

The only postings I really check out on this site are the first person accounts which are usually pretty close. The rest is just idle speculation. More first person accounts please....


I saw Conan in person once actually a couple years ago. But I couldn't get a great read on his height because the ground was heavily sloped. I could tell you he's definitely not anything like the 6'8" he's apparently been billed at in the past, nor is he a man of average stature. But first person accounts can sometimes be pretty fruitless unfortunately since all of that was very obvious.

Comparing him to Josh Homme, whose height I believe to be an example of a legit 194 cm, I think Conan is a very solid 192 cm.
Goose said on 1/Nov/15
I've seen Conan & Andy both in person in NYC. I saw Andy with his mom (couldn't mistake that voice) and he was 6'2 (I'm a very weak 5'10). Saw Conan on Prince & Sullivan and he was 6'5 and big boned - huge shoulders. Didn't know who he was at first & he still caught my attention.

both Conan and David letterman appear taller when they first greet the audience with a frontal full body shot of them. It isn't until they stand side by side or in front of taller guys on even keel where we start to see a difference. When Joe M came on his show Conan asked him if he was 6'5 and Joe told Conan "6'4 and a little change". Joe was a good inch plus taller of course not taking footwear into account. To be fair, conan isn't lying egregiously like others because it's likely a inch we're talking and he has the proportions of a 6'4/6'5 guy with his inseam. He would likely get billed a true, honest, no questions asked 6'3 by a doctor or anyone around his size who is claiming their true height.

Lol. Conan with his long limbs and very slender build is tricky to guess. Bobby3342 got it right. Measuring bf is "going against the grain" nowadays (sadly enough). Compared to other Celebes have been on his show like Kobe, Joe Mangienello, Dennis haysbert, Charles Barkley, he doesn't look over a flat 6'3 barefoot (quite poss 6'2.75 at his lowest). And Bobby, I feel your pain and Baba's. I'm like Bobby, prob 6'4.5 at my lowest before bed. Can't count how many times I'm guessed at 6'6 or even 6'7 esp in shoes with higher soles. It gets old having to correct people or to tell them off when they argue with you! Guess it goes to say nice guys (honest guys) never win! End my rant as well!

I'm like 6'2 and 3/8"; guys usually think I'm 6'4". Last time time I saw my 6'1" cousin, he said, "How tall are you now, dude - 6'5"?" We were practically eye-to-eye lol.

Oddly, women tend to guess my height as slightly shorter than what it is - usually 6'1" or 6'2". Maybe because most men seem tall to them.

That said, I do think Conan is closer to 6'4" than 6'3" (though not a full 6'4").
bobby3342 said on 21/Oct/15
Conan is 6 3 barefoot, to his credit a lot of 6' 2 guys claim 6'4 , so while him being 6 '3 claiming 6'4 people are like, yup conan's a solid 6 '4, I am 6 '4 and change barefoot and I get guessed at 6'6 all the time and when I tell them im 6 '4 and a bit they laugh at me like im lying. Face it rarely anybody claims bf heights so it has become acceptable to call conan 6 '4 and Michael Jordan 6'6 people don't realize how big a 6'4 bf guy really is ,and guys like Ali Baba get told no your 6'7 or 6'8 your heads almost hitting the door lol.

It appears that he is losing height or posture as of late. He looks significantly shorter next to Rhett McLaughlin (6'7) than he did next to Stephen Merchant (6'7) in years past.
Andrea said on 15/Jul/15
Rob, any idea on Andy Ritcher? Listed at 6'2, which is probably is claim... He was in an episode of Chuck and, if i remember well, he was maybe a couple inches shorter than Zach. Maybe 6'1?
[Editor Rob: yeah 6ft 1 might be better for him.]
yenz said on 13/Jul/15
I just watched some video where hes at some Irish heritage place.

I can see why people don't think he's 6'4". He doesn't have average 6'4" proportions. His torso is so tiny, that he probably gets away with medium size shirts.
Triplescrew said on 9/Jul/15
Ok this is a bad angle but here's a pic of Conan with supposedly 6'8" Brittney Griner. Though I think she might be more around 6'6.25" and round up like how other WNBA and NBA players do.

Click Here

I watched the episode where she was a guest and Conan only looked about 2 inches shorter than her (though he did have maybe a half inch footwear advantage).

6'3.75" at night makes sense... 6'5" with the hair. Maybe he scrapes 6'6.25" in clunky dress shoes :). Which wouldn't be too unimaginable seeing as he's nearly shoulder-to-shoulder with Griner.

Triplescrew said on 31/May/15

I'd have to agree. I have a 35" inseam and when I tuck my shirt in I look like I'm Leggy McGee. Conan is a combination of skinnyness, long legs, and a tucked in shirt. All that creates an illusion of ridiculously long legs as opposed to just normal long legs common to most 6'4" people.
heightwise said on 24/May/15
Not sure if there's much posture/uneven floor to account for but that's a revealing picture. Barkley must be easily over 6'5 as I'd hesitate to give Conan under 6'4 since he so often looks it

To all those people who want to lower Conan, who was EASILY over a flat 6'4" throughout the 1990's (he's in his 50's now), he still is clearly taller than Sacha Baron Cohen, who is over 6'3" (at 1:09):

He was taller than Goldblum in there last meeting, however I think Goldblum might have had the edge I. The 90's.

Goldblum has lost height. He was 6'4.5" in the 1990's. He's well into his 60's now and could be under 6'4" these days.

Yeah, his legs really aren't THAT long. He probably wears a 36 inch inseam in his pants. That's just a little bit longer than average for his height, not super long, like he always likes to claim.
Josh said on 13/Feb/15
He's definitely nothing under 6'4. He's really tall
Judd said on 5/Feb/15
Strong 6'4"...he looks very very close if not as tall as Jeff Goldblum...can't see Conan under 6'4"!
Manletgame said on 24/Jan/15
The long legs thing is bull****. I'm 6'2.375 out of bed and I often get the long legs comment due to the illusion of wearing a shirt tucked and having skinny legs. Conan, much like Hasselhoff, is a legitimate "very tall guy" with the leg thickness of an average girl. This really emphasizes height.

This guy has longer legs than most guys his height don't you think Rob?

@Clay: (This is Greenbolt, by the way). You can tell just by looking at Shaq and Yao's feet in the two pictures that Shaq clearly has far more camera advantage in Vegas's photo than Yao does in the one I posted, so in no way has Vegas 'completely validated' your point unless you're reducing your point to the simple fact that camera angles can warp perceptions on height, something I have not once denied.

To say that the apparent closeness in height between Shaq and Yao in Vegas's photo validates the point that Yao is towering over Shaq in my photo due to the camera angle is, frankly, a ludicrous statement because Shaq clearly has much more of a camera advantage in Vegas's picture than Yao does in the one I posted.

People seem to commit this fallacy on a fairly regular basis. It's like someone claiming that 3rd grade math is difficult (let's say, for a 35-year-old person), and then pointing to the arguable difficulty of differential equations as evidence for their argument. You're arguing that Yao is appearing much taller than he actually is in my picture due to camera angle, and then you point to a picture where someone has vastly more of a camera advantage to 'validate' your point.
Clay said on 27/Nov/14
Greenbolt says on 17/Nov/14
@Vegas: "A tiny bit" is a bit of an understatement I think, Shaq has a substantial camera advantage in that picture.

lol, Vegas just completely validated my point. Can you at least acknowledge how camera angles swing things one way or another?
Greenbolt said on 17/Nov/14
@Vegas: "A tiny bit" is a bit of an understatement I think, Shaq has a substantial camera advantage in that picture.
Vegas said on 14/Nov/14
here is another with o'neal now having the camera advantage, photos are nice to look at but being a tiny bit closer to the camera can make a huge difference Click Here
Greenbolt said on 9/Nov/14
Also, Clay, you claim there is a ten inch difference in the photo. I don't understand how, even if there is a camera advantage for Yao, you arrive an the conclusion that there is only a five inch difference? Do you really think the camera is inflating Yao by FIVE inches? I don't see how that's possible, at least not in this particular picture.
Greenbolt said on 9/Nov/14
@Clay: Personal attacks aren't going to accomplish anything here, what is going to accomplish something is to objectively analyze the photo. I have given evidence that Shaq is no further away from the camera than Yao, whereas you have not given evidence for the contrary. Lack of argumentative engagement gives the impression that you don't have any arguments to back your view.
Clay said on 7/Nov/14
Im sorry but if you cannot realize that is an angle that makes Yao look a lot taller than Shaq than what it really is between them than I will just end this here. You're not the only that can't pick up camera angles here, BTW.
Greenbolt said on 28/Oct/14
@Clay: The fact that Shaq's head looks significantly smaller than Yao's creates the illusion that Shaq's standing further back, but take a look at their feet. They're standing roughly the same distance from the camera, Yao's head is simply enormous.

And there's no way it appears to be a ten-inch difference, Clay, because Shaq comes up to Yao's nose; account for Yao's massive head and we're probably looking at around seven to seven and a half inches difference. Shaq could stand up straighter and bring it down to six and a half, or maybe to an even six. These would be my estimates on the two:

Shaq: 6'11.5''

Yao: 7'5.5''
anon said on 28/Oct/14
one of the very few celebs thats actually under-listed, definitely underplays his height. Someone previously said that liam neeson is taller, absolute not, stands up straight an is a good 1.5-2 inches if not more taller. Click Here
Clay said on 27/Oct/14
Thats just one bad angle with Yao. It looks like 10 inches with Shaq standing behind but we know it's 5''.
Greenbolt said on 25/Oct/14
@Vegas: I've seen that shot between LeBron and Shaq a million times, where Shaq somehow looks 5.5'' taller than the 6'7'' LeBron. However, it is widely known that Shaq wear's enormous shoes that give him boosted height, and pictures bear this out. For example, here's LeBron and Shaq at the ESPY awards:

Click Here

That's looking more like 4.5''. Now take a look at the difference between Shaq and Yao in basketball shoes:

Click Here

That's like a four inch difference opposed to the roughly 6 inch difference between the two of them in the pic recently. Granted, some of that can probably be attributed to Yao's growth, but he was 23 in the all-star game pic, there's only so much growing he could have had after that.

So going by the LeBron/Shaq photo at the ESPYs, which I feel is a much more reliable one, Shaq is looking around 6'11.5''.

Danimal said on 23/Oct/14
Conan was between 6'4" and 6'4.5" (he has stated this himself many many times over the last 20+ years of doing his show). He's in his 50's now, so it's possible he lost a bit (not much), but all those saying he was 6'3" are just plain wrong.

PENN JILETTE is between 6'6" and 6'7". Does this look like a 6'3" MAN TO YOU GUYS? This was at least a dozen years ago and Conan looks closer to 6'5" back then then he does 6'3"!!
Greenbolt said on 22/Oct/14
@Sam: The problem with the video of Levi and Conan is that the latter is closer to the camera the entire time. In addition, Levi is slouching slightly for most of the clip, while Conan maintains virtually perfect posture for most of it. I found the most telling moment to be at the 54 second mark when Levi finishes whispering in Conan's ear, and their postures flip-flop from what they had been up until that point with Levi standing up straight and Conan dropping into a slight slouch: Once you discount Conan's hair, Levi manages to look a mere half inch or so shorter, and that's with Conan possessing the camera advantage as well as the footwear advantage, which I feel are more than enough to offset his slight slouch. A final point, Conan appears to be tip-toeing as he walks up to Levi at 19-21 seconds, and when he plants his right foot he still hasn't dropped his heel to the ground. I don't believe he was tip-toeing for the entire segment, but it's certainly a possibility to consider given the evidence. A flat 6'3'' Conan does indeed fit.
KROC said on 21/Oct/14
I don't recall him looking 6'4 next to Chris Rock when he made a guest appearance on his show back in the late 90s. Looked more like a strong 6'3.
Sam said on 20/Oct/14
6'3" is too low for Conan...

I watched the video with Levi and while he is wearing relatively low sneakers compared to Conan's dress shoes, I think Conan might be getting a half inch more, so he's still a little taller. You could make an argument that Conan can look around a quarter to a half inch under 6'4" but a flat 6'3" doesn't fit.
Greg said on 8/Oct/14
@Arch Stanton: All I could find with them together is this one picture where they look pretty much the same height when you factor in Conan's posture advantage: Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 7/Oct/14
@Greg, and how tall is Dolph Lundgren then. 6'1" LOL? Did you not see how he looked with Dolph?
Greg said on 7/Oct/14
I don't buy a 6'4'' Conan. Everyone points to the video with he and 6'3'' Zach Levi where Conan appears two or so inches taller as evidence, and yet people don't seem to take into account that Conan has every advantage in the book: a fairly sizable footwear advantage as well as a slight camera advantage and posture advantage, plus hair. In fact, if you look closely at Conan's feet when he's walking up to Levi you will see that he's even TIP-TOEING, and judging from the fact that Conan doesn't appear to suddenly drop height when he subsequently stands next to Levi, it looks like he possibly never left his tippy toes. Even if you disregard this, towards the latter end of the clip Levi actually straightens up and looks barely an inch shorter than Conan, and that's with Conan having the footwear advantage as well as slight camera advantage.

6'3'' for Conan.

He always edges out Will Ferrell by about 1-1.5 inches and Ferrell's a weak-ish 6'3". At times, like next to Dennis Haysbert or Tom Selleck, Conan can seem a weaker 6'4" but there's really no doubt that he's 193 cm range.

Damon says on 8/May/14
I was watching an old interview he did with Stephen Merchant where Merchant asked him how tall he was and Conan said '6'4...ish' and then he asked Conan to stand up and Conan did NOT look three inches shorter than him.

I don't think Stephen would exaggerate his height, but I think it's very possible that Conan is modest about his.

I think he may be 6'4.5


Conan was slightly short of Liam Neeson though. They stood up straight and compared heights and both agreed Neeson was just a little taller. Conan said "I'm 6-4, you must be 6-5?" And Neeson replied that he was "6-4 and a wee bit". So I wouldn't put Liam at more than 6'4.25", and Conan 6'4" max and quite possibly a little under (but no less than 6'3.5").

They actually compared heights on one episode, both agreed Neeson was taller. Conan said to Neeson, you must be 6'5", Neeson replied 6'4" and a wee bit. They're pretty close, but Neeson is slightly taller (keep in mind Liam is older too).

Lol your just saying that to legitimize this crazy 191cm+ for the Rock! 192cm Conan, Rock 187cm max!!! Nah, but in all seriousness, I agree Conan was a big 6'4 guy when younger, no way 192cm. I guess since him and Orton we're both minimum 6'4 in 2006, Then Rock really is 6'3,(which I never said he wasn't) but 6'3.5 is just crazy.

Saw him in Soho once - didn't even realize who he was but struck by how big he was. This was around '99 but looked a good 6'5 and guy had some size to him - not fat but just big-boned big dude all the way around.
James said on 3/Feb/13
i meant 3-4 inches shorter than merchant
Trent said on 2/Feb/13
Yes, Lillo, I remember him saying that on a show. I think that must be why he doesn't appear tall sitting down. All his height is from his legs, so to speak.
Jamesy said on 1/Feb/13
Well he did look 3-4cm shorter than 6'7 Stephen merchant.

Big guys like merchant can be taller depending on time of day?

Nigel, I've heard him claim 6'4.5 before actually. It was in some video where he talked about skiing.


That's interesting that he'd claim that because he really doesn't look 6'4.5" at all. He's came up a bit shorter than several legit 193 - 194 cm range guys like Neeson, Homme, Hayesbert, Goldblum. Conan is more 192 cm, maybe 193 cm. Not 194+ cm.
Lillo Thomas said on 29/Jan/13
Wow he wears 38 inseams ? I'm 6-5 at my lowest and only wear 34 inseams .
Arch Stanton said on 20/Jan/13
James, more often than not Conan can look a strong 6'4", he had near 3 inches on Chris Cornell and was barely shorter than Vince Vaughn. His hair though can make him seem nearer 6'5" at times, but I can't see him under 6'4".
AnonUKguy said on 18/Dec/12
Same height as my brother I reckon, 192/193cm range. Very tall guy, I feel rather small compared to this at 182/183cm I can only imagine how people shorter than me feel about it.
James said on 15/Nov/12
Yeah he could very well be 6'3.75.... That said Conan looked very close too close too Vince Vaughn but maybe that's his hair

Conan O'Brien 6'3.75 (192cm)
Vince Vaughn 6'4.75 (195cm)
Sheamus 6'3 (191cm)
Jeff goldblum 6'4 (193cm) peak 6'4.25 (194cm)
Liam neeson 6'4 (193cm) peak 6'4.25 (194cm)
Trent said on 14/Nov/12
Yeah, he was edged out by them. I would say 6'3.75 or so, and his 6'4 and a half claim could be from a measurement early on in the day. He does have a very long inseam for his height. He doesn't look tall sitting down. He has an enormous head too. At his height you are very tall. He is a human tower when pictured with most people.

He was actually about 3cm, if memory serves, above Dolph Lundgren. Can anyone find that video? Dolph actually commented something like, "Wow, you're tall man", but Conan seemed not to hear as he said it when the music was playing them out.
James said on 11/Nov/12
Well it has been brought up that guys like goldblum and liam neeson edged this guy out....however that could be because of camera angle.

I think Conan is 6'4 overall but he might drop down too 6'3.75 late at night.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Nov/12
If Conan is only half an inch taller he'd have to be wearing a pair of Stallone's regulars, surely? I see Zach is in converse type shoes but still, its difficult to buy he is only half an inch taller. But Conan's a tough one to nail down, he can look near 6'5" like he did next to Dolph but he can also look 6'3.5" at times.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Nov/12
Rob do you think Conan looks 6 ft 5 in that Zach Levi clip? He seems to appear no less than 1.5 inches taller? Height difference looked about the same with Dolph Lundgren.

For some reason Conan never looked like a legit 6-4 to me . I think Conan is in the 6-3 range . 6-3 is tall.

The guy rarely looks anything less than 6'4", he easily looks that tall especially with his hairstyle and he wears 38 inseams!!

Conan is 2 inches shorter than Kobe Braynt. Kobe is a legit 6'6, or 6'5 1/2 at the very least. Kobe's 2 inches taller than Dwyane Wade, who is 6'4. Just look at the Olympic team photos for proof. And Conan is an inch shorter than Vince Vaughn, who is 6'5. Conan is a legit 6'4.

Kobe is not 6'6'', he's listed at 6'6'' and listings always exaggerate. Your claim that Kobe is 6'6'' is based on an unproven assumption that Wade is 6'4''... Wade was measured at 6'3.75'' barefoot and that was more than likely in the morning. So 6'3'' for Wade and 6'4.5'' for Kobe... Thus Conan is about 6'2.5''.

I didn't think Kobe had as much as 2" on Conan. More like 1", 1.5" tops. But he does tend to look 6'3" a lot more often then he looks 6'5".

What is odd is that Conan can look 193 cm easy a lot of the time, yet looked the same height as Michael Phelps (listed on here at 6'3").

Thats because Phelps is more than the 6'3'' flat Rob has him at.

He looked 6ft3 tops next to Richard Harris years ago. I posted the clip on Harris's page. But he also looked taller than Tom Selleck. I think he is a legit 6ft4, since he can appear close to 6ft5 as often as he can appear closer to 6ft3.

A legit 6'4" isn't really that rare at all in celebworld. There's rather a lot of 6'3"-6'4 actors. Now anything over a legit 6'5" yes, that's rare.
Shaun said on 26/Aug/12
Mmm 2 inches shorter than 6'4.75" Kobe. I'm noticing a pattern here. There is no way Conan is anything under 6'3.5" let alone 6'2.75. Rob are we certain Kobe is that height because he also made Obama look 6'0. Is he actually near 6'6"? Maybe he was measured 6'4.75" barefoot in the evening and is in fact close to 6'6" in the morning?

To me he looks 193-194cm legit.

that explains why he was edged out by 1,93m Jeff Goldblum and Liam neeson and was also shorter than 1,94m Denis hayesbert

Well he also has an inch on Tom Selleck and I'm not buying anything under 6'3" for him.

What do you guys reckon Conan's inseam to be? HE does seam to have disproportionately long legs, but then again his very large head must also make up a large chunk of his height. At least 37?

wow,those jugoslaves are so so arrogant:) lets say the only difference between some croat and lets say swede or lithuanian is that jugoslaves mention allllll the time how tall they are while others barely give any meaning to it. its understood gyes,you are tall,but you are not the only ones:)
Mickey said on 30/Sep/07
Swedes average height is 5' 11". American Caucasian male aveage height is 5' 10". The american average as a whole, is thus pulled down to 5' 8" because of all the Asians and Hispanics we have living in America (much more than in Sweden or ahywhere else for that matter). I'm not being racist, obviously there is tall Asians and Latinos everywhere in the world, but in general they are much shorter than Swedes, thus America's average is pulled down.
Dorker said on 30/Sep/07
I remember seeing Liam Neeson (6'4") on Conan once and Liam said he's 6'4 and Conan said he's also 6'4", but when they stood next to each other Liam was clearly taller. I'd say Conan is 6'3" or 6'3 and a half AT MOST.

To the Serb poster / Croat poster... I was in Belgrade for a week last year as my girlfriend is Serbian and we were doing business over there.... I am 5-10 and to say that all Serbs are "tall" is quite a misnomer... yes there were taller people there, but lots and lots of guys in the 5-10 to 6-1 area... the women were maybe slightly taller than US women, but not much so. yeah Serbia has tall guys, maybe slightly taller than US on average...but from the tallest men in the world come from North Eastern Europe, namely Norway and Sweden.

PS: Serbian pride is quite an interesting thing.

Is, then how about the Clive Owen clip right below the Garret one on youtube? Owen is 6ft2 and Conan has several inches on him, which would put him at 6ft4. It's true Garrett dwarfed him, but perhaps he's taller?

Here's the clip, Garrett looks massive compare to Conan.

The perspective and posture probably favors Garrett, but I really can't see Conan at 6'4 in the video.

I think Conan is more like 6'3, maybe a little over.
Morgan Freeman was on his show recently, and they look about the same height. Garrett was on his show last night, and Conan barely makes to Garrett's eyebrow. For a big guy like Garrett, that's gotta be a over 4 inch difference.
Xhavier said on 20/Sep/07
Chris & Anonymous. I'm with you. I realize that what I have on this site is actually incorrect for my height. I have a lower number than what the doctor's tell me I am. Ignoring the fact that I cannot stand straight, I am exactly 192 cm tall without shoes (if I could stand straight I would be 198.5 cm tall--muscle problems). So that translates to being 6'3 1/2", and I too have met individuals that are shorter than I am that claim to be heights taller than I am, and those close to my height (6'3" and 6'4" people) that claim to be 6'6" or higher. Also I have recently met more and more people that tell me that I must be 6'4 1/2" not 6'3 1/2" because they are a legitimate 6'4" and I am taller than them. I'm sticking with my 6'3 1/2".

Nice to know there are some more honest folks out there.

Have a nice day.
Franco said on 3/Sep/07
he looks 196cm most of the time in shoes so 193 or even 194cm is pretty accurate.

his height is pretty easy to notice.
Djorkberg fran Sweden said on 24/Aug/07
You guys are making a big mistake. When you study statistics you learn that the mean is not a good way of reflecting the variety of any set of numbers...only the average. Let me give you an example. Lets say there are six people in a room, three women, three men. The three men's heights are as follows:
Man 1: 190cm
Man 2: 199cm
Man 3: 195cm
And the women -
Woman 1: 148cm
Woman 2: 155cm
Woman 3: 153cm
The mean height would be: 173cm...but that seems somehow wrong because although its the average, it doesn't tell us anything about the real values themselves. That height is so far from the heights of any of the persons, so its value as a 'DESCRIPTIVE STATISTIC' is nil - it doesn't describe the values!! The point is ER is wrong when he talks about Norway and the Alps. Certain families of any race (certain african tribes for negros, and certain white families such as the serbs and croatians for caucasians) are known to have a number of 'outliers' when it comes to measuring heights...this means they have a great variation which places a lot of persons in the top range and a lot in the bottom. Other ethnicities of races are known for having less extreme measurements. Serbs and Croatians do in fact have less average heigh males than in Norway and Sweden, but higher readings for 'tall' and 'short' the 23% over 190 for the Alps and 6% over 190 for Norway is actually a correct statistic despite their averages being only 7 cm apart. Don't let big words like 'mean' fool you...the mean is just one of many statistical tests, in this case, an irrelevant one!!!!

Supermanfan380 said on 21/Aug/07
I am the oddball out here, and will suggest that Conan is really OVER 6'4".

Possibly 6'6".

The reason for this, is his role as an interviewer, Stars will be much less likely to show up on a show with a guy who makes them look small.

So fudge his height down a bit, so it sounds less like the Star going on his show will be dwarfed.

Same as in movie scenes where actors do not want a co star who makes them look like a kid.

So naturally, it would make sense for Conan’s stats to be fudged downward. Being a comedian as well, you do not want to look intimidating.

Imagine if you had a 7 ft comedian built like Arnold was in his prime. The guy would not be funny, as they would all be too scared of him. Extreme example, but you get the idea.

If O’Brien is 6’6” or even 6’5”, he would want people to think he is less than that. That would also explain why actors look so short compared to him too.

If any guy is going to fudge the bar downward, it would be a guy in O’Brien’s shoes.

I've met a few people who are honest, but those people tend to be far fewer than those who exaggerate, I met a guy recently, who I was sure was going to claim to be 6'7", or some exaggerated height, but he said, 6'4". I was slightly taller than him, but it was nice to see someone being honest. On the other hand, I've met people who are my height ... legit 6'5", and they claim to be 6'7", or 6'8", and I've met people who are 6'1". maybe 6'2" with shoes, who claim to be 6'4".

I don't see anything wrong with rounding up or down to the 1/2 inch, but it gets annoying when people exaggerate by 2-3, sometime more, inches.
Anonymous said on 30/Jul/07
Chris, I know exactly what you mean. I am a solid 6'3'', and there's shorter people who claim to be as tall... There are honest ones, too, tho. Like, when I was in HS, a friend, who was maybe exactly as tall as I was, said he were 6'2'', and I exaggerated my height to 6'4''. Today I try to be extra precise, and it's 6'3''. Maybe a bit taller in the morning, a bit shorter in the night. So, in the night, I might actually be a little less than 6'3''.
Chris said on 26/Jul/07
Height is a very funny thing. I am a solid 6'5", barefoot, but always feel taller than I really am. I will go to duck to walk under something, suddenly realize I don't have to duck, but can actually walk under it. I will turn around, look at the height of what I just walked under, and sometimes am amazed that, really, I am not that tall, to be able to fit under that object. But, really, it is perspective. At 6'5"-6'6", of course that object will look shorter to me, than to someone who is much shorter. Camera angles do the same thing, and this is why judging someone height, even if standing right next to someone of the same (reported) height, is not really accurate. The angles, whether they are looking up, down, from an angle, or are closer to one person, than another, can create the illusion of one being taller, or appearing taller, shorter than they really are.

By the way ... as someone who is a legit 6'5", barefoot, taller, obviously, with shoes, it amazes me, and sometimes annoys me, at the number of people who grossly exaggerate their height. I've met people I'm a good 4" taller than, who claim to be 6'4", and are convinced I must be 6'8". I don't understand this. You are as tall as you are, regardless of what number you throw out there. Claiming to be 6'4", when you are 6'1", doesn't make you 6'4". I can't help but sometimes laugh at some people.

In his interview with Barrack Obama, Obama said something like, "You don't see too many 6'6" guys with red pompadours over there." I also witnessed Conan reveal his height as 6'5" when he was being interviewed one time. Well, I don't think he's quite that tall, but he's definitely not under 6'4". Maybe he was even a little over that at his peak.

I have a very hard time believing 28 % and 20 % are over 6-3 in height in the Dinaric Alps and Holland respectively. How is that possible, when in Norway, where the average height is 5-11 (0.5 inch difference from Holland) only 6,1 % of the population are more than 6-3? Please something that can document your claims.
Croat said on 11/Jul/07
The people from the Dinaric Alps are the tallest in the world (186 cm for males).The Netherlands was in the late nineteenth century a land renowned for its short population, but today it has the 2nd tallest average in the world,[2] with young men averaging 183 cm (6 ft) tall and only shorter than the peoples of the Dinaric Alps (Montenegro, Serbia , western Bosnia, coastal and hinterland Croatia and a part of Slovenia), where males average 186 cm (6 ft 1.1 in) tall. The Dinarians and Dutch are now well known in Europe for extreme tallness.
Croat said on 11/Jul/07
Our investigation covering 2705 boys and 2842 girls aged 17 years, shows that, contrary to the general belief, adolescents of the Dinaric Alps are, on average, the tallest in Europe. With an average height of 185,6 cm, they are taller than Dutch adolescents (184 cm on average). Above all, the density of very tall subjects appears to be characteristic of the Dinaric Alps, since 28% measure 190 cm or more in height, as opposed to only 20% in Holland and 1.5% in France. Although our information is not complete, adolescent girls in the Dinaric Alps, with an average height of 171 cm come a close second to girls in Holland.
Croat said on 11/Jul/07
You're an egotistic, condescending, arrogant self-hating serb. You're not special, there's many like you. I have made extensive research on the subject. There are many evidence, research and anectodal references to support what I'm saying. Type Human height in W!kipedia. Or type Dinaric Alps in Google. What do you have against the truth?

Since you're naming Russian president Putin.

Tesla was 6'6'', Novoselic 6'7'', Visnjic 6'4'', Bana and his brother 6'3'' and 6'7''.

Tallest tennisman Ivo Karlovic 6'10'', Ljubicic and Ivanisevic 6'4'', Ancic and Cilic 6'5''. Don't tell me I've picked the tallest. These are the only ones I know.

Tallest soccer players, Zigic and Zakac are both 6'7''. There are two others who are 6'7'', who are not Yugoslavs.

Tallest NBA player, Slavko Vranes at 7'7''.

We both know Yugoslavia is the greatest nation in basketball with the USA. All their players are huge, with some measuring over 7'.

Serbia and Croatia are #1 in waterpolo and handball and volleyball. All their players are huge comparitively to other nations.

Argentina's tallest volleyball players are ethnic Croats, and they measure 6'7'' and 6'9''.

How about the movie ''Honey I Blew Up the Kid'', when the baby gets tall, over 7 feet, the father tells the scientist, that it's a friend visiting from Yugoslavia. Or how about the show 'Matchmaker' that I watched recently, where a Croatian-Canadian brings a girl to a Croatian bar, and the host says wow look at those women they're all giants, over 7 feet tall. Or in tennis, the commentators can't believe how huge the Croatian players are.

5'8'' is Japan's avg. height, don't tell me it's Yugoslavia's avg. height. Yugoslavs are the tallest, piss off, you piece of crap. Go make some research.

People from the Dinaric Alps are the tallest in the world. Dinaric Alps includes former Yugoslav republics. Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, all huge.

Yugoslavs have always been huge.

Type human height in w!kipedia, or dinaric alps in google, and shut ur fuking mouth.

The average Yugo is 6'1'' 1/2. 1 in 40 is 6'7'' and over, 28% are 6'3'' and over.

You're claiming that Slavic people in the Balkans are tallest in the world... I don't know who you're trying to fool. Why aren't the Slavs in Poland or Russia or Ukraine or any former USSR for that matter that tall? They all fall below the average European heights... ex. Putin 5'6" Gorbachev 5'8" etc... Now Dalmatia was an Illyrian province so if you're talking about Illyrians then you might be right. So today that would be modern day Albanians including those in Kosovo which is a former Yugoslav republic. But even those claims seem ridicules.
Croat said on 10/Jul/07
Loler, I know your kind. Type human height in W!k!pedia, and see what it says. Or type Dinaric Alps in Google. Most researchers agree that the tallest people are from the Dinaric Alps (which encompasses former Yugoslav republics.) Other studies have showed that Dalmatians are the tallest. (Dalmatia is Croatia's biggest province). All these regions are confusing to most. That's why I simply use the term Yugoslav.

The average Yugoslav is 6'1'' 1/4. Which is the tallest avg. height in the world.
loler said on 10/Jul/07
thats funny I was born in former yugoslavia... And I can assure you that 6' and above is not uncommon but claiming to be the tallest people in europe or the world is absurd... The average height in the balkans realistically is 5'8" - 5'9" max for males.
Croat said on 6/Jul/07
Let's not be ignorant here. I have studied human height for a long time now. The tallest people are obviously Yugoslavs. Yugoslavia includes Croatia and Serbia. The tallest people are from the Dinaric Alps (Aka Yugoslavia). 28% of Yugoslavs are 6'3'' and over, 1 in 40 is 6'7'' and over. And of course there are tons of evidence, sources and references to support this. Let's not be ignorant. Dutch being the tallest is a myth. Guinness has the Tutsis. Other research support this, while most point to the Yugoslavs being the tallest. Dutch are after the Tutsis (Watusi) and Yugoslavs.

I was at a taping of his show in San Francisco. He stood right in front of me to autograph my ticket and he was definitely a good 5 inches taller than me and I'm 5'11. I'd say a definite 6'4.
moe said on 6/May/07
I don't think he's taller than snoop, he stood straighter up and as you mentioned with his big hair so that gave the impression that he's a little later but I think they're the same height.
Duhon said on 5/May/07
Conan looked a little taller form my view. although his hair is so huge compared to snoop's coif.
moe said on 5/May/07
snoop dogg was on his show last night, they looked the same height to me.
MD said on 1/May/07
Yes, at least 6'4". He had 6'4" Bob Sagat on his show, the other night, that he's doing out of San Francisco. He was marginally visibly taller than Saget, by at least a half-an-inch, I'd say.
JK said on 1/May/07
Conan is at least 6"4 and I'm willing to bet 6"4.5 even. One of my friends is 6"4 and we personally met Conan when he came to UB last spring and he was a little taller than my 6"4 friend.
DG said on 29/Apr/07
I would also say Conan is at least 6'4". Just as he has stated himself. Determining the heights of "average" people can be tricky, but as a person who is a solid 6'6", and often correctly guessed by others as such, I can say that when you're talking about 6'4"+ range people, that's when above average height becomes really apparent. It can't even be faked with platforms really, because in this range, all the limbs just appear longer. Many people in this range take on a lanky or stooped appearance in pictures. Think Howard Stern (6"5") Vince Vaughn (6"4-5ish) or any other certifiably really tall celeb.

It works kind of like the magic six foot mark. The visual threshhold between "short" and "tall".
Alex said on 29/Apr/07
Arjun, at my height 6'0.5 a 9 inch head may be a bit small but I think it may be 9.5 actually but its no way more than that though.
Colton said on 28/Apr/07
i donno he said he was 6 5 when he interviewed michael clark duncan.
Arjun said on 20/Apr/07
I think anyone whose head is a solid 10" or more has a long head. 11" is VERY big, and 12" or more is GIGANTIC - Andre and Big Show type.
Arjun said on 20/Apr/07
Alex, my head is about the same as yours, 9 - 9.5, though I think closer to 9.5 for me. Since I am a weak 5'8", it does'nt look small for my height, I would say definitely average. Some dudes with big hair seem to have average or even biggish heads, it's funny how then one day they turn up with a shaved head or a very short cut and look like pinheads :)
Oh yeah, and Big Show's head is AT LEAST 12 inches long, maybe closer to 13. Most likely around 12.5. Definitely not only 11 - 11.5 inches. Since he's balding, there's no big hair to give the illusion of a bigger head, as in Andre's case (though Andre's head was also equally huge I would say w/o the hair) Kane's head must be around 10 inches, and he looks like a pinhead next to Big Show. He has one of the biggest, if not the biggest, heads that anyone will ever see on a human being.
Alex said on 19/Apr/07
Thats what I was saying that 9.5 inch head isn't small or even 9 inches. These guys like Big Show and Andre had heads 11-12 inches.
Viper said on 13/Apr/07
My head is 9.5 inches. I thought it was 10 but I measured wrong.
Alex said on 12/Apr/07
Anna, I am almost sure its 9 inches. 9.5 inches at most but its not 10 inches though. My head looks about average for my height I think.
Viper, how long is your head?
Viper said on 9/Apr/07
9 inches isnt that small Anna. Its on the shorter side for a tall person but it doesnt look weird. Now 8 inches would look weird.
J-Dog said on 9/Apr/07
The guy is obviously 6'4" no question about it the clip with Hugh Laurie who is 6'2.5" just goes to show you even more so.
supes78 said on 4/Apr/07
Who hasn't looked shorter or taller than their actual height, though?
Viper said on 4/Apr/07
Conan has looked shorter thant 6-4 in pics though. Its not just his show.
supes78 said on 3/Apr/07
Yeah, I noticed that too. The height difference between Hugh Laurie and Conan of a good 2 inches can be seen at 4:10 of this youtube clip:
Click Here
The whole segment is freakin hilarious.
Joey said on 13/Mar/07
Conan's definitely 6'4". Watch the 2007 Emmy intro video. Conan's at least 2 inches taller than Hugh Laurie who is a solid 6'2".
Danny said on 6/Mar/07
There is no way that Conan is under 6-3, a lot of the times it appears that he is only slightly taller than most of the guests due to the camera angles in which Conan is always further away from the camera and slightly leaning forward, when he actually gets up, say during a segment, and is right next the guest only then does his real height come through...also take note of his footwear which hardly gives him any extra height..
Alex said on 22/Feb/07
Its gotta be Conan's hair that makes him apppear taller than he really is. I'd say he is 6'3 now rather than 6'4.
timber said on 7/Feb/07
I agree with Viper's estimate of 6-2.5 on 26/Dec/06, because last night on his show he appeared 4 inches taller than 5-8.5 guest Emily Deschanel. She appeared to be wearing 4 inch heels, making her 5-11.5 and Conan 6-3.5 in shoes.
Alex said on 5/Feb/07
Arjun, how long is your head? My head is 9 inches when I measured it. So someone who is 5'3-5'4 comes to my chin.
Arjun said on 19/Jan/07
Alex, my eye level is 5 inches from my skull top, and I'd say that's pretty much average for most people. Atleast most people who are exactly my height look me right in the eye, plus or minus a few mm. And it's surprising that there is very little correlation of forehead length with total height , many of the guys with big foreheads are'nt tall at all, and many taller guys have smaller foreheads
(although there is a fair correlation of face length, and therefore total head length with height) Anyhow, this forehead and eye level stuff
usually accounts for an inch max. Most people will have anywhere from 4.5" - 5.5" to their eye level.
will be practically no one with 4" or less (or 6" or more) to their eye level.
As for upper body/legs, Khali and Big Show both have short legs and long torsos. However, them being wrestlers, I think it actually suits them more than the opposite (long legs with short torso).
Alex said on 11/Jan/07
Thats good to be equal. It looks funny with the people who have very long upper bodies and short legs. Normally guys who are on the short side.
Viper said on 10/Jan/07
I think Im half and half with legs and upper body.
Alex said on 10/Jan/07
Are you more upper body or legs? I'm a mix of both but I believe I'm a little more legs than upper body because no way can I wear a 32 inseam. I'm a 34 inch inseam and about 6'0 1/2. My friend who is 6'5 is an easy 36 inseam but my other friend is 6'3 and a 32 inch inseam as he is more torso/upper body.
Viper said on 10/Jan/07
I was surprised it measured out that much because it looks average to me. I think the top of my head just slopes up more than most.
Alex said on 9/Jan/07
You have long head if its 10 inches or more, no disrespect.
Viper said on 9/Jan/07
I think my head is over 10 inches, maybe closer to 11 even.
Alex said on 8/Jan/07
How long is your head in total? Mine is about 9 inches flat I measured it at. Take your barefoot height then take a measuring tape and see what height comes to the bottom of your chin and you should get it like that.
Viper said on 8/Jan/07
Yeah Alex, my eyes are more 5-5.5 inches from the top of my head.
Alex said on 8/Jan/07
Someone's eyes can be higher than someone else's and they can still be the same height. My eye level is 4.5 inches from the top of my head but some guys with longer forehead are 5-5.5 inches from the top of their head.
Viper said on 8/Jan/07
I thought I had to look more up at him, but that doesnt mean he was taller than me though. I dont know, he could have been my height.
stan said on 7/Jan/07
Viper how tall are you and when you looked at the guy at work did you look at him right in the eye or a little below his eye
Ade said on 7/Jan/07
Haven't watched the show in a few weeks. Been busy. ;)

But I agree with 6'4" for Conan.
Viper said on 7/Jan/07
Alex, I mentioned some guy I worked with says he is 6-3, but he seemed closer to 6-4 to me. He might have been more 6-3 1/2 or a little over. I just felt like he was marginally taller than me. Sometimes Id feel taller though. We might have been the same height, but he just gave the impression of being taller then a flat a 6-3 most of the time, and he had a very broad build too.
James said on 7/Jan/07
Viper, if Conan is 6'2.5", then that would make Will Ferrell under 6'2", which he definitely is not.

Ade, John Mayer was also on Conan's show about a week ago and appeared a good 2 inches shorter. Without the slouch and a guitar strung from his shoulder, I still see at least an inch difference between these two guys.

If you're a regular viewer, you'd know that, walking on the streets of New York, Conan can look like Rodan with a pompadour. He is indeed 6'4".
Ade said on 6/Jan/07
When John Mayer was a guest on the show a year back Conan was half an inch taller. He could be 6'3.5" but no less. No way has he lost an inch in height, he's not that old.
Alex said on 5/Jan/07
Viper, has their ever been someone who has claimed to be the same height as you and were shorter than you by more than a bit.
Viper said on 31/Dec/06
Barrack is a smart guy too. He must be blind in one eye or something.
Alex said on 28/Dec/06
I'd actually give Conan more 6'3 but he could be 6'2.5 though. I don't think he's 6'4 anymore. His hair gives him a bit of height you can see too.
Viper said on 26/Dec/06
Rock is more 6-2. I still think Conan is 6-2 1/2 Max now.
Larry said on 25/Dec/06
I don't know, I watched that episode pretty carefully and Stern seemed about an inch taller. You have to remember that every time a guest comes in they shoot him from a low angle and behind the guest, so they allways seem taller then they really are.
Howard Stern danced with Conan and put his head on his shoulder, they almost seemed the same height.
Anonymous said on 20/Dec/06
Conan is only 6'3" bar none. Howard stern was on the conan O"Brien show and he was at least 2 to three inches taller than Conan. Stern is listed at 6'5".
James said on 8/Dec/06
Nealon has to be 6'4". His height is the first thing I noticed about him, especially in Happy Gilmore. And indeed, if he actually straightened up, he'd be as tall as Conan.
Alex said on 8/Dec/06
Sometimes a stadiometer can be off a bit like 1/4-1/2 inch. It depends on how straight your head is or if the bar is on any slight angle it can make you taller or shorter. Last year I got on one and the doctor said I was 6'0-6'1 and didn't even give an accurate number, lol.
Anthony said on 8/Dec/06
Cantstop, I agree that the shorter cast made Nealon seem taller. In fact, I though that made him look taller than 6'4. I used to think he was 6'6 or so. He does slouch a lot, but when he straighrns up he easily looks 6'4.
Danimal said on 7/Dec/06
Nealon was slightly taller than Conan a few years ago and Nealon had Foreman by at least 2" on SNL. He slouches, but he is tall.
MD said on 7/Dec/06
Yeah, Nealon, if anything, has looked taller than his listed height, and not shorter.
Anthony said on 7/Dec/06
Seriously? He always came off as taller than 6'4 to me. And as Danimal pointed out on his page, he was 2 inches taller than George Foreman on an "SNL" sketch. Nealon's at least 6'4.
Viper652 said on 7/Dec/06
You know, Nealon has never come across as a 6-4 guy to me, at least on television.
Anthony said on 7/Dec/06
Sorry, but there is no way Nealon is 6'2. If you've ever seen him on "SNL", he looks even taller than 6'4.
Anthony said on 6/Dec/06
Nealon is definitely 6'4, and I think Conan truly is 6'4. I agree that while he can look a little lower on the show, tv and films aren't always the best way to judge height. I really do think Conan truly is 6'4.
MD said on 6/Dec/06
6'4" Kevin Nealon was on Conan last night/this morning and they were the exact same height. Is Kevin Nealon not 6'4"?
James said on 6/Dec/06
How is that the most accurate? Even if the person's eyes are level with the top of your head, there are so many flaws with this method. Why even have stadiometers if they're less accurate than measuring tape?
Alex said on 5/Dec/06
The most accurate measurement is for someone to take measuring tape while you're standing up barefoot and measure you that way.
James said on 4/Dec/06
Those doctor's stadiometers are as accurate as it gets. People are just disappointed after being measured that way and finding out they're not as tall as they thought (usually about an inch shorter).
Alex said on 16/Nov/06
If I see this guy who is 6'2.5 again which I will soon I should ask him how tall he is and watch him saw 6'4 still after getting measured at 6'2.5 barefoot at the doctors. Those doctor stadiometers aren't always the best to go by either.
Alex said on 15/Nov/06
Viper, yea some even me I will admit with favorite stars we tend to be more generous to them.
Viper652 said on 15/Nov/06
Cantstop, did you see the pics I linked where he is shorter than 6-3 Henry Simmons? I got called out at one point for supposedly downgrading celebs and being insecure, lol. I guess If your favorite star is shorter in reality you might go postal I guess.
Viper652 said on 15/Nov/06
Barkley is 6-4-6-4 1/2 Max.
lillo thomas said on 15/Nov/06
barkley cant be taller than jordan . at best the are the same height. between
6'4 and half and 6'5. Some times jordan looks a little taller than barkley in some pics.But this can be because body frame
Danimal said on 14/Nov/06
I don't see Barkley at less than 6'5" though. I say he was 6'6 1/4" with shoes and 6'5" without. I believe that Jordan was 6'5.5" with shoes and more like 6'4" without.
anonymous said on 13/Nov/06
His hairdo is 6'4! I don't buy it, because he has a short torso and long legs. I'd give him 6'2.5 the most.
Alex said on 13/Nov/06
Viper, also the funny thing is this. He stills says 6'4 after he gets measured at 6'2.5.
Alex said on 13/Nov/06
Well I knew this guy for 8 years. He would always said 6'4 other than once when he said 6'5. Then last year he was measured at the doctor and said he was 6'2.5 after someone bought up that he was 6'4 since a couple of us were talking about height. Honestly he does look a full 6'3 to me but I have a picture with him when I was 6'0 flat and he doesn't look over 6'2.5. I could try to scan it if I can get someone too. 1.5 inches isn't too much off but its a noticeable difference though for sure. But even before he said he was measured at 6'2.5 I got a feeling he was def under 6'4 because when I met my friend who is a legit 6'5 guy, maybe closer to 6'5.5 was taller than him by a few inches when I compared them by looking at them at different times since I they were never together. Would be interesting to see the 2 together.
Chris said on 9/Nov/06
When Conan was in Finland and talked to the president Tarja Halonen who´s 172 cm, Conan looked 20 cm taller, she wore high heels.
Viper652 said on 8/Nov/06
Did you make fun of him by being so off on his height?
Alex said on 7/Nov/06
Viper, Conan can look a 6'4 guy a lot but maybe his hair is giving him a bit, but he's 6'3 minimum though. Barkley has said to be just under 6'5 I believe and Barkley could be 6'5 but no more and more likely 6'4.5 but he's over 6'4 though. And I do agree at 6'2.5 you can get away with 6'4. There is this guy who did live next door to me who claimed to be 6'4 for years and even 6'5 once but he got measured at the doctor at 6'2.5 even though I thought he was 6'3 flat though.
Viper652 said on 3/Nov/06
6-4ish Charles Barkely had him by 2 inches.
DaMan said on 2/Nov/06
Conan never looked 6'4" to me, when I first started watching him years ago I though he was 6'2" - 6'3", kinda surprised me when I first heard him say he was 6'4". Anyway, I don't think he is a solid 6'4".
Franco said on 19/Oct/06
I am a legit 6'4" (193 cm) and i met Conan here in Italy last year at the RITZ Hotel, that day i had the usual flat shoes and he was going out of the hotel, amazingly i asked him if he's the real Conan o'Brien and he really was!

now, i was in flat shoes and he had the usual suite shoes and i can assure you he was about 1 cm shorter than me. i can absolutely state he is 1.92cm based on personal experience. 6'3 1/2 is his true height and he rounded it to 6.4" when anyone asks.

actually i think he really WAS 6'4", no doubt at all! but at this age NOW he must've lost something and went down a tiny bit.

that's what i saw with my own eyes. :)
Viper652 said on 12/Oct/06
I personally dont think Conan is 6-2 1/2 either. But he can look it in pics sometimes. I think hes 6-3 1/2 bare minimum.
Viper652 said on 12/Oct/06
You can pass for 6-4 at that height.
James said on 12/Oct/06
6'2.5" for Conan is just laughable. The guy is clearly taller than that. Besides, I don't think he could get away with talking about height on his show as much as he does if he were under 6'4". He would just look like a fool.
Viper652 said on 9/Oct/06
I agree Jake. I linked pictures where Conan looked marginally shorter than 6-3 Henry Simmons. I think Conan could be anywhere from 6-2 1/2 to 6-4. Hes hard to pin down.
Jake said on 6/Oct/06
If Hasselhoff is 6'5", than Ryan Lee Stiles would have to be 6'7" - but this is obviously not the case (he's generally referenced to as 6'5" or 6'6".) So now that we know Hasselhoff isn't any more than 6'4", we can compare him to Conan in those pics. Seeing that Hasselhoff looks marginally taller, it becomes ridiculous to even mention 6'5" for Conan. He might be 6'4", but lets stop calling him "6-4 or 6-5".
sf said on 4/Oct/06
Said he was 6'4" again, last night, although I think the show was one of those late night re-runs.
Viper652 said on 13/Sep/06
Ehh, Im just a lot more realistic and right more times than not compared to everyone else.
Viper652 said on 13/Sep/06
Danimal, Hasselhoff did look taller than 6-4 at times on Knight Rider. Probably just camera angles or shoes.
Danimal said on 13/Sep/06
Viper isn't short guys.
stan said on 12/Sep/06
Viper stop being insecure about your height and quit downsizing people, please man come one. Conan is at minimum 6'4
J-Dog said on 12/Sep/06
Viper can often be an obsessive downsizer of celebrity heights, I never quite knew why?
Danimal said on 12/Sep/06
Thing is, I agree with Anon. Conan has stated that he lies between 6'4" and 6'5", so let's say 6'4.5". Thing is, I've never heard anything above 6'4" for Hasselholf, even though he can appear taller than that. Are you all sure that David is taller than Conan?
Viper652 said on 12/Sep/06
He looks no taller than 6-4 flat at the absolute Max. May be slightly below it.
