Conan O'Brien height: 6ft 4in (193 cm)

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.' "

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"!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQU85-H0GjI

@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.

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 says 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.

@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 says 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 says 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's about 6ft3 tops if Neeson is only 6ft3.5 today
5ft10guy says on 17/Sep/14
If Conan is 6ft4 kobe is a legit 6ft6
Sam says on 20/Aug/14
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.

barkley is closer to the camera and conan is losing more height.
Sebastian says on 3/Jul/14
Charles Barkley is obviously one of the few people who make themselves smaller than they are. He must be around 1,98 m (6-6) compared to the Rock (1,89 m/ 6-2,5): Click Here and Conan OBrien (1,93 m/6-4): Click Here His mugshot: Click Here
No chance that Barkley is only 6-4,75 or 6-5.

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").

yep i think 6'4 is correct..."192cm is more spot on"....How can you visually tell the difference of someone's height by 1cm??????!!!!!!! wtaf :o
Sting says on 14/Apr/14
192cm is more spot on, imo.
Mathew says on 5/Apr/14
If Conan gets 6'4" Liam Neeson should get 6'4.25" and Josh Homme should get 6'4.5".
Jesse Stone says on 2/Apr/14
6'4 Tom Selleck was a few cm taller than Conan in 2004!
Jaywha says on 18/Feb/14
193cm spot on.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 9/Jan/14
Rob, who'd be taller peak Conan or Liam Neeson?
[Editor Rob: I think they've got to be pretty close]

---

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).
Balrog says on 9/Jan/14
I think 38 inseam are common in men who are 6'7" or over...
Lorne says on 9/Jan/14
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.

Rob, which is more likely 192cm or 194cm?
[Editor Rob: I think in 20's he might have been 193 at his minimum so could be 194 a chunk of the day]
Mathew says on 6/Jan/14
He says he's "about 6'4"-ish, somewhere".
Goose says on 29/Dec/13
Seen him - he's 6'5. Some tall actors 'lie/down' their height like Howard Stern. Conan is also big boned and very broad shouldered. Trust me? If you were walking down the street & didn't know who he was you'd still notice him on size alone.

He doesn't have a big head at all. It actually looks rather on the small spectrum, or lower end of average.
CB says on 12/Dec/13
conan has said that he's unproportional lol he has very long legs and everything else is small... except....
Mark says on 25/Oct/13
Conan has said a hundred times he is 6'4 without the hair
But 6'11 with the hair lol

Viper says on 13/Oct/13
Agree about his large head making him a tiny bit shorter
Jared says on 1/Sep/13
Pretty close to the 6'4" mark but can look shorter because of his giant pumpkin head.
Viper says on 13/Aug/13
Looked 6'3 range going back to back with 6'4 Hasselhoff as well
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Jul/13
Looks 6"3.5"(192cm) with Neeson and Goldblum (both 6"4" and 6"4.5")

Next to 6'5" Charles Barkley. Chuck clearly has an inch on him at least. Chuck says he is 6'5" and no taller. Chuck also was slouching quite a bit when greeting Conan and was still taller.

He said once on his show that he is 64. He looks 65 or 66 on television
Jim Longie says on 16/Mar/13
Out of bed, 6'3.5 at best... + 1 to 2.5 inches of footwear...
James says on 28/Feb/13
Probs his hair making him look 6'5.
Chowder26 says on 24/Feb/13
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 says on 3/Feb/13
i meant 3-4 inches shorter than merchant
Trent says 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 says 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?
Mathew says on 29/Jan/13
Trent says on 9/Nov/12
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 says on 29/Jan/13
Wow he wears 38 inseams ? I'm 6-5 at my lowest and only wear 34 inseams .
Arch Stanton says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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.
[Editor Rob: zach looks to have less footwear ]
Arch Stanton says on 9/Nov/12
Lillo Thomas says on 8/Nov/12
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!!

Did you see him next to Dolph Lundgren and the guy he visited a house with alongside Slash, the guy claimed 6'4" and he was easily an inch taller. 6'2.5" is hilarious for Conan.

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''.
Nigel says on 7/Nov/12
Conan said on his show yesterday (or the day before -- I dunno, coz I'm in Australia) that he's 6ft 4 1/2

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".

Mathew says on 29/Sep/12
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.
Silent d says on 8/Oct/12
6 foot 4.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Oct/12
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.

kobe is 6'5 1/2 BARE MINIMUM. I proved this two years ago where i showed he had a inch on 6'4 3/4 MEASURED Michael Redd, as for Connan he is
6'3 1/2
Shaun says on 26/Aug/12
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 says 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?
Shaun says on 26/Aug/12
Tman says on 7/Nov/11
Shaun says on 4/Nov/11
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.
Mardis gras says on 26/Jul/12
6'4 at least
Hob says on 11/Jun/12
he look a full 2" shorter than 6'4.75 kobe bryant. maybe 190 on dot?

No way do I buy the under 6'3" claims but he does appear to be weak for 6'4" (maybe 6'3.75")
sasa says on 22/Jan/12
especially the lower legs, long legs, but the torse is very, very short.and his built skinny.wear shoes with a bottom support and his realy height only 6'1-6'2..he look very shoty with 6'3-6'4 mens
Silent d says on 21/Jan/12
He said he was 6 foot 4ish when that nerdy guy came on. The co creator of life is to short. The episode with kate beckinsale. 6 foot 4 is right.
