How tall is Conan O'Brien

Conan O'Brien's 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.'". He also mentioned once "I'm about Six-Four...but I'm not".

most likely neeson is at most only 0.3 / 1 cm taller than Conan, no more.

Neeson is about half inch taller and he might really be a 194 type guy (6'4.25) in his peak this makes sense that Conan is 192(6'3.75) in his peak and his "but I'm not" claim he might have really measured 192 and made that claim
Adam said on 14/Sep/16
Xhavier, at exactly 24 seconds into that youtube clip when Conan faces Selleck eye to eye, the latter seems to have a clear edge.
Willes189 said on 11/Sep/16
Conan is insecure about his height, don't take that comment serious..
Canson said on 10/Sep/16
@Mike: he was taller and Conan acknowledged it himself. An inch don't know but 2 full cm at least
Mike said on 9/Sep/16
Neeson was never 1 inch taller than Conan...
Canson said on 8/Sep/16
Xhavier: 6'3.5 (192) peak is legit. Don't see him any taller.
Canson said on 7/Sep/16
@Willes189: you love making people taller than they are and want people to be. Liam Neeson had close to an inch on him and was 6'4. No he didn't downplay his height like you say. I agree with Bobby3342. Conan peak may have been 6'4 out of bed 6'3.25 but nothing more
Xhavier said on 7/Sep/16
Check out this video from an interview with him and Tom Selleck: Click Here

Between 6 min and 6 min and 30 seconds, the height question occurs: Conan asks: "How tall are you 6ft 4in or 6ft 5in?", Tom replies: "I'm 6ft 4in. How tall are you?" Conan replies: "I'm about your height, I'm 6ft 4in, but I'm not". This is an interview from 1998, so this could suggest 6ft 3.5in as a peak.
Editor Rob: I'll mention that at the top thanks, it's either one of two, he measured a fraction under or over.

It might be more like 6ft 3.75 which makes sense.
Willes189 said on 6/Sep/16
Agreed, 6'4-6'4.25 at peak, and like 6'3.8 today
S.J.H said on 5/Sep/16
On my generosity i"ll say conan 6'3.5 now and 6'3.75 peak. At peak we have see some 6'4 guest really taller than him like liam neeson , tom selleck , jeff goldblum , david hasselhoff etc
Willes189 said on 5/Sep/16
Rob, can you give an update on your opinion in Conan's case? What do you think he measured at in his peak? And do you think that he has lost some height by know in his 50s?
Editor Rob: I think there was a chance he was a solid 6ft 4 and now just under, a small fraction.

His 10 and change size head doesn't help him visually look as tall as some 6ft 4 guys can.
Canson said on 3/Sep/16
Willes189: You started this whole thing. Yes, let's both stop lashing out. Yes you are entitled to your opinion so don't lash out at someone because they don't agree with you. You are a very good height at 6'2. That's a great height to be honest so no I wasnt attaking that aspect. But don't make false statements or assumptions like Conan is a Confirmed 6'4. He wasn't measured on his show and there is no proof other than what everyone else claims or he claims. You take whatever he says and use that claim and are adjusting everyone else to make the math work. Kinda funny how Charles Barkley is said by other players (he actually says he is 6'5 most of the time) to be 6'4 range, not to mention I know people who have met him in addition that say he is my height. Yet, you still say Oh he's downplaying it because he makes Conan not 6'4 like you want him to be. Honestly, I can care less what height anyone is because height doesn't define a person. However, the statements you make out of your mouth, you make it sound like it does "Why downgrade Paul Walker, it's disrespectful" "a 6'4.5 guy is lying saying he's 6'4 and he needs to claim the 1/2" Why is that? Why does anyone have to claim a half inch? They can round down or up if they please.

Also "Gwen Christie should be given 6'3.5". Think it's fair to say in Hollywood that most people measure in and claim shoes. That's what really throws it off. I wouldn't doubt Conan being that height in shoes or even with his hair. However, judging how Dennis Haysbert, Charles Barkley, Kobe Bryant, Liam neeson, and Joe M have made him look, I think its safer to say he isn't what he claims. And don't make rules for what someone must claim all because you want them to be taller. Honestly, outside of this site, if I didn't know any better (me personally), I measure 196 out of bed. If I went to the doctor after an hour i'd be 195 and wouldn't know the difference so yes id prob say 6'5. Just happens all my appointments ive had even before have been at least 2-3 hours out and ive been 6'4.5 so don't need to round up esp when I fall 1/8" below to a flat 194 (not 193). So you are generalizing that Conan would be that at his lowest when in reality he could've been 6'3.75 an hour out of bed and rounded up. Many people assume these are lows when they aren't even and in some cases shoe heights.

He is not as tall as 6'4.5 or as low as 6'3
Here's a video of liam H AND conanClick Here


Damn that forehead is killing me. What a huge head he has never noticed that until lately. Maybe around 6'3.5" as he WAS shorter than Neeson. ( can't believe people are arguing about two men agreeing one is taller on film...)

Canson(193cm at lowest)

I'm not talking about Neeson.. And stop trying to tell
everyone false information about my height. I'm 190.5 OOB and 188.8 before bed, i just happend to get measured 100% right this time, so i changed my name from Willes190 to Willes189, not a big deal.. And stop raging on me like a 15yo going through puberty, i'm alowed
Canson said on 2/Sep/16
Willes 189/Pucko: since you are the same person (you pretty much admitted it in the General Heights section) oh and you all are the same height as well. You just said Liam was 194.5 and that he downplays it on his page now you say he's 191.5. Conan in his prime was not as tall as Liam. You are just proving less and less credible with every post you make

@Willes189: you obviously didn't watch the episode when Liam was on his show and Conan admitted he was taller. "You must be 6'5, Liam" "no I am 6'4 and a wee bit". You're a complete tool Willes 189.
Canson said on 1/Sep/16
@Willes 189: or the guy who has the creepy obsession with upgrading claiming every celeb over 6'4 downgrades himself. "Well Berta, you're friend is likely taller than he is". You're a damn joke and nobody here takes any of your downgrading comments seriously. You probably have a small wiener and fantasize about others being taller just for effect inside of you
Willes189 said on 31/Aug/16
Taller then solid 191.5cm Liam, and taller then 192cm Goldblum, Conan is very tall, and a genius, just like Stern.

Canson. Says the guy who has a creepy obsesion downgrading celebritys his own height due to lack of confidence..
Canson said on 29/Aug/16
@Willes189: I don't go off what other people (Conan) claim to be and take their height and measure others against him. Go ahead and fly out to meet your boyfriend in person and see how tall he is and come back and report to us. Since you like attackijng people

Conan o'brien's height is (6'3.75) peak and (6'3.4)
He is not as tall as 6'4.5 or as low as 6'3
Here's a video of liam H AND conanClick Here
Canson said on 27/Aug/16
@Willes189: well I think you answered your own question. There is no proof he's over but Liam Neeson is taller Charles Barkley (his teammates and coaches class him as 6'4 not 6'5 so he's somewhere in between and my 6'3 friend who met him said he's the same height as I am), Kobe (has claimed 6'4.5 and .75), Joe M is taller and under 6'5, Haysbert etc. the other proof is when Conan guesses people taller than they are. Wlad Klitschko "what are you 6'6/6'7"? Wlad out of his own mouth says he's 6'6 out of bed and 6'5 at night so Rob's estimate is precise enough. His brother is about 1.5" taller and claims 6'7 so likely is 6'6.75 at his lowest or 6'6 7/8. Then Neeson "what are you 6'5"? Conan either A, hair boosted it, B got a morning measurement of 6'3.5/.75 and rounded like so many disjointed 6'4 guys do or he claims his shoes. I think the latter because no way he's as he has claimed 6'4-6'4.5 when a slew of 6'4 guys on his show have edged him out.
Johan said on 24/Aug/16
How big do you think his eyelevel is? Many people talk about his hair and how it adds height but just look at this pic he must have near 5 inches?

Maybe thats why he sometimes sees people near in height as taller?

I don't see him under 6'3.5" but since Neeson is also sub 6'4" nowadays its a tough one to figure out.
Willes189 said on 24/Aug/16
Can all of you give me some evidence that Conan was under 6'4 at peak?, i agree with 6'3.75 today, but he would have been measured at around 193cm in his late teens and 20-40s
S.J.H said on 22/Aug/16
Grace to the fact he was closer to 6'3.75 peak and rounding up say 6'4 and 6'3.25 nowadays
Canson said on 20/Aug/16
I agree with the Man. Peak height may have been 192 but I'm not convinced he has lost any. He's always had long hair which makes him in conjunction with his odd body look taller than he is. Wouldn't surprise me if he was 191 back then and still is today. Guys like Kobe Bryant Charles Barkley Josh Homme Manganiello Neesum and Haysbert have always been taller than he is noticeably. Some in the group are weak 6'5 candidates like Kobe and Joe and Barkley but the others in the low to mid 6'4 still have height on him. Goes to show how tall a legit 6'3 at or near his lowest height actually is. He can pull off a 6'5 appearance to many
Zoom Omega Distortion said on 12/Aug/16
I believe his peak was almost 194cm and he is now a bit less than 193, but no way less than 192cm!
The Man said on 7/Aug/16
There's 0 chance that Conan's anything above 6ft4 peak. He was always edged out by the likes of Neeson, Goldblum, Alexander Skarsgard, and other 6'4"/strong 6'4" dudes. Not to mention he looked 1.5" shorter than Kobe in one particular show. Whether Kobe had more shoe advantage or not, I would peg Conan to be 6'3.75" peak and 6'3.5" today.

don't know about the difference in footwear but nate diaz is legit 6ft imo Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jul/16
Rob, how likely is a strong 6ft4 peak?
Editor Rob: a chance of course, he could look a solid 6ft 4 at times, but his hair usually was thick, he might be almost 6ft 4 as well.
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
Out of bed 192.5 before bed 190.5-191. Prime 193 out of bed 191.5
Zoom Omega Distortion said on 22/Jul/16
I believe his peak was 195cm out of bed and 192cm before bed and nowadays 194 out of bed and 191 before :) So 193.5cm peak and has lost 1cm because of age.
Canson said on 20/Jul/16
@MathewRobinson190: I agree with your estimate a lot more than others I've seen

the problem with much of the site is, its much like it is on the streets. It's about inflating people to make a person like Conan the height they claim. For some ungodly, unknown, asanine reason, people assume it's "less" insulting to "inflate" another person claiming their true height than to tell someone else they aren't as tall as they wish or claim they are which is 99.5 times out of 100, the norm. One claiming a shoe, one claiming their real height. One lying up or even rounding a morning height (which is not as much a lie but still off) the other claiming their lowest. Like if a celeb like Conan "says" they're 6'4, then they are 6'4 whether they're really 6'3 or not, whereas if Kobe Bryant or Charles Barkley says "I'm 6'4 1/2 or 6'4 3/4". No he's taller than that because Conan's 6'4. Same with Stern. No he's more than 6'5 even tho he has always claimed that height because so and so is (insert number). Instead of that honest person being the height they claim (the person who actually is) it's always that they are taller than they claim all because so and so has to be 6'4" which is BS. So most of this appears to be about "accommodating" someone else's lies and "short"comings (no pun intended). Guess it hasn't resonated with many people that many of these "supposed" heights being claimed are in shoes not barefoot. No Conan didn't shrink (at least not much). He was never a legit 6'4.

---

I agree that Conan may not be a legit, rock solid 6'4", but I also think he is (or was? has he lost height?) closer to 6'4" than 6'3". I've seen him as 192 cm range for quite some time now, I think a 6'3.75" listing would suit him well. Although a 6'3.5" or 6'4" listing I think are still pretty close. Over 6'4" or under 6'3.5" is hard to envision for Conan - for me it is anyways.
Peterson188cm said on 18/Jul/16
Rob, In your opinion, what would be his weight ?? maybe 185 lbs or 190 lbs ??
Editor Rob: wouldn't have said under that range.

Pucko said on 14/Jul/16
Conan is no less then 192-193cm, but he was easily 1cm taller at peak, he has been around for a long time, and at age 53 most people will have lost 1cm if not more..



192.5cm
Alex said on 14/Jul/16
Yes, Conan have a really long legs, more than average.
Canson said on 12/Jul/16
@Alex: you are spot on. He's always looked 6'3 barefoot (at his lowest). He has longer than avg legs which give a taller impression, dress shoes (some shoe with a heal of a sort), and long hair which all play into him being taller. I know someone who had long hair (claims 6'3) with a digital tape measure but when he cut his hair was def under. Not much but he's 190 (he was honest because his hair was similar to Conan's and added). I used to see less than an inch at times (he wears flat shoes all the time) and now clearly "about" 2". Hair can play a huge factor along with the other stuff. Not to mention the other "supposed" unmeasured "6'4" guys that claim the height and aren't the height but everyone here wants to "buy" their claim and upgrade another person (a Howard Stern a Charles Barkley a Kobe Bryant even a Conan) all because they look taller than people who claim the height these guys are. It is 100% the truth.

I don't know if Conan lost some height, 53 years old now, maybe a tiny fraction. I think he's 6'3 now, a good 6'4 with his usual shoes. Great height.
Canson said on 9/Jul/16
Scottie Pippen (who is at most 6'7/201) is 4" taller than Conan
Canson said on 9/Jul/16
Lol. Norm macDonald is at most 6'1". Goose loves adding those 2" to every celeb doesn't he? Stern 6'7, Robbins 6'7, Conan 6'5", Favreau, Gandolfini, Flectchner and the list goes on. Shoe heights are (rounded up are what they are). No celeb in their right mind will downgrade themselves. They generally upgrade. What a dumb***
Canson said on 8/Jul/16
@Alex: I'd say peak he was 191-192 and maybe got the early morning 6'3.5-.75 and conveniently rounded up. He never has looked 6'4 with a true 6'4 you on his show. But I agree. I can buy 190 today if he has lost height (it's hard to tell).
Canson said on 8/Jul/16
Lol. Goose. If you look at all of your posts across other pages you consistently add 2" to everyone. Nobody takes anything you say seriously. I highly doubt you have met all of these guys or that you are a bad evaluator
Alex said on 6/Jul/16
Conan is another 190 cm guy who claims 193 cm with shoes, the difference next to Barkley is obvious..
Pucko said on 6/Jul/16
193.5-194cm at his peak, nowadays 1cm less
Goose said on 5/Jul/16
Some of the speculation here is both incredibly hilarious and incredibly stupid at the same time. Just because an actor lists his height (that's his publicist doing it BTW) doesn't mean he is that height. Norm is or was 6'3 and if you follow Norm he's the one of the most subversive comics in the world and could care less about how his height is perceived. I've seen all three in person (Andy, Norm and Conan) and Conan 'was' in 1998 or 1999 6'5 (saw him at night BTW when he'd shrunk). The 6'4 estimate is likely accurate in 2016 given he's over 50....
Canson said on 3/Jul/16
@123: agreed he is shorter than both. Those guys are over 6'4 tho more like 194.3-195 (6'4.5-.75). I'd put Conan right at 6'3 at his lowest more than likely. At worst maybe 6'2.75 (190+) the latter due to age. I honestly believe he measured in shoes or claims a shoe height based on evidence I've seen with other "6'4" guys who edge him out. He only looks 6'4" to people here on this site because his claims are based against other guys who "claim 6'1 or 6'2 or 6'3" and he always looks much taller because those guys claim their shoes as well. I've noticed any time a legit 6'4 is on his show that he is always edged out. I mean "always". I've never seen him as tall as any 6'4 person and that's even in his prime. I honestly in my heart believe he's always been 6'3 maybe a strong 191

@Height: agreed. He isn't real old but you can lose at that age.im in my mid 30s and can see almost 1/8" (not quite but close) that I've lost. I used to be 6'4 1/2 at my lowest or 1 mm under. Also lifestyle has a lot. I can see loss on a bodybuilder or heavy steroid user Ferrigno Arnold Moeller etc than on Conan.

@Canson He's no that old, he is 53.

2 inches shorter than Kobe and Charles Barkley he's six-two
Canson said on 30/Jun/16
@Height: prime maybe but problem is we're going off a claim for Jimmy. IMHO Conan is at most 6'3 at night (191). I think prime maybe he averaged 192 but was never a legit 6'4. Prob just a guy who was measured in the AM and didn't think anything of it (we people here are nuts LOL)! If you look at Conan every time he asks someone how tall they are or guesses someone's height he is off an inch. Klitschko (what are you 6'6 6'7?) Neesum (what are you 6'5)? Dennis Haysbert also had him by a good bit and Barkley and Kobe (who neither of them is a full 6'5 had him by 1.5-2")
Height said on 27/Jun/16
He is no less than 192 cm at night, he has a legit 11 cm to 12 cm edge on both Jimmys.

And out of nowhere comes Moe with another insult. Great job looking for a post from me to try and insult me. If you don't realize you started the whole thing on Theler's page with me, Joe, and Bobby and now you continue. Go right ahead. It's all because people don't "see it your way." This is a site where we give opinions. Yours isn't necessarily the holy grail. Go look at how many others you have screwed up.

Goose, don't even bother arguing with Canson. He's just a bitter short guy.
Saqib said on 30/May/16
Rob do you think hes a little obsessed with height like us?
He asks a lot of actors their height on his show like jake gyllenhaal,liam neeson etc.
Editor Rob: maybe he has some interest, being a very tall guy and it being a subject that comes up more frequently than if he were an average height guy.

It is also a topic that some hosts might find is easy to talk about or get the guest talking about.
Canson said on 28/May/16
@Berta: too small for 193. If I had a nickel for every time a 6'4 guy is on his show even a 6'5 like Klitschko and he asks them if they're a certain height (1-2" more than they actually are) I'd be a wealthy man! I'm with S.J.H and Bobby3342. He's 6'3 (191 maybe 190 now at his age). But I wouldn't hesitate to say he was a 192 guy at his peak (at absolute most though). Only 6'4 he'd ever see is 193 out of bed in his absolute prime!
Observer said on 27/May/16
I would like to make clear that Andy Richter is not 6'2". He has consistently been shorter than Norm Macdonald who is 6'1.5". I'd say Richter is around 6'0.5".
berta said on 25/May/16
He Always looks 193 to me. Could be 3 milimeter over. But i Think he is pretty good evidence that Liam Neeson was 194 peak

Canson, you're rock! I totally agree with you ;) Btw to be fair conan is 6'3 and 6'4 with shoe and 6'5 illusion made by a hair

At 3:17 Conan is asked by a 6'4" guy how tall he is and at 3:20 he says he's about 6'4"-6'4.5" (which I'm positive he was in his prime) The sketch is from 2009/2010 when he was 46 years old).. Btw, it's a hilarious sketch to watch in its entirety: Click Here

Goose: Sorry but Conan isn't even a flat 6'4. Look at him with Kobe Bryant or Charles Barkley or Liam Nessum. I know people who have met Barkley (reliably and are close in height with me at 6'4.5) and he's what Rob has him at most. Also know ppl who have met Kobe and also saw KROC post that he is 194-195 which is what he claims as well as Barkley. Go look at Jordan's page where he mentions it. Again reliably because KROC is 6'5 so he could tell the difference being taller than Kobe. So are you telling me if Kobe and Barkley are under 6'5 flat that Conan is taller than they are? The evidence suggests otherwise. They both have Conan by a good inch and a half.

Oh and you also claim that Tim Robbins is 6'7 (he claims 6'4.5 or 6'5), that Howard Stern is 6'7 (he claims 6'5 and Bobby3342 who is my height met him and said he's 6'5 as did another poster), that Jon Favreau is 6'2.5, that Gandolfini is 6'2.5, will Fichtner at 6'1 and the list goes on. Notice a common theme, Goose? All of your estimates are at least an inch and a half, some even 2 inches above what Rob has these guys listed here on this site. A lot of guys are already listed about an inch higher (they claim shoe heights). So either one of three things here. 1. Your friends you base 6'4-6'5 off of aren't really that tall which is very common as 6'4-6'5 usually shocks people due to the many who lie on the street about their height; 2. You are bluffing when you claim to have met these guys, or 3. That you aren't good with gauging height. I mean I can see someone downgrading maybe one or two or three celebs or upgrading a couple vs giving each two inches which is your natural tendency.

Canson, you haven't seen any of the guys I mentioned in person - I have - I lived in Manhatten. Conan when I saw him in Soho in 98' or 99' was 6'5 - no question. When I saw Richter with his mom he was 6'2....

You're opinion is just total speculating (camera angles, lifts, etc) unless you've seen them in person. I have no vested interest here but those height are on target I guarantee you....

See some people in person before speculating from images/videos off the internet....

Conan is not standing upright in those photos neither.In the YouTube clip Home looks to have an edge on Conan but that could be down to footwear.I still think Conan is a strong 6ft4.

I believe Conan looks closer in height to Sebastian Bach than he does to Josh Homme in the videos. If Conan were a strong 6'4", I'd put Josh at about 6'5" (which he has claimed to be fair) and Sebastian Bach maybe around 192 cm range, give or take.

No, the pictures are misleading due to poor posture. The video is much more telling. Look when they are about to shake hands. Clear as day Josh is taller.

Agreed, Mathew Robinson.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 28/Mar/16
Very much suspect 6'3.75" would be a better listing than the full 6'4". You can seldom be too sure when it comes to spotting quarter inches, but he's been edged out by 6'4" guys on his show in the past and has admitted to being "6'4-ish", which to me says he probably measures a little under. I struggle to see over 6'4" or under 6'3.5".

Look him up against other tall guys who have been on his show.
Liam Neeson is 6'4" - 6'4.25" range (don't have the link, maybe someone else can find it, but Conan literally said "you must be six five" to Liam - they even compared heights)
Josh Homme is 6'4.5" Click Here
Kobe Bryant is 6'4.75" Click Here
Sebastain Bach is 6'3" Click Here

I think if you really pay close attention to his height in relation to these guests he tends to look more 6'3.5" - 6'3.75" than a big 6'4". You could argue 6'4" flat too, but I think a tad less is a safer bet.

Most of them are really short. Here most boys/men are at least 6 feet, but most of them are taller.
berta said on 22/Mar/16
Always looks 193 only time he looks shorter is with barkeley who makes the rock loock 186, so barkeley is probably more like 197. cant se him shorter than michael jordan. and also when he met liam Neeson who was probably 194. Liam neson is a guy who looked Close to 6 foot five 20 years ago but with bad posture he lost 1 cm 10 years ago and now 2 cm more and is down to 191 now. Conan is 193 and have Always been.
Gary said on 20/Mar/16
@Rob, Do you think Conan was ever above 6ft4 range barefoot in his prime?
Editor Rob: at times he can look a strong 6ft 4, but he also has a bit of hair help.

How can he be 6ft3 and be so much taller than Will Farrell.Just google him with Farrell and you will see.Also with Liam Neeson he looks taller.
jervis said on 20/Mar/16
Easy 6ft4 had about 3inches on Will Farrell,he looked 6ft5 with Farrell.Never had any doubt that he is at least 6ft4,infact I would have put him at 6ft5 if he had not said he was 6ft4 himself.
Sam said on 18/Mar/16
I have a hard time of seeing Conan as having lost height...6'3.5" was always possible but he generally looks near a weak 6'4".

LL is a guy that I think both slouches at times and isn't as tall as some believe. He'd measure a bit taller than he sometimes stands, although I still doubt he's anything more than 6'1".
Canson said on 7/Jan/16
LL isn't standing up straight and I highly doubt LL Cool J is 6'1 barefoot if he did. I mean my opinion but I can bank on it he's not. I have watched his tv show "In the House". He had people like Lennox Lewis James worthy Eddie jones and Kobe on there. He and Lewis were right in front of each other in the ring and Lewis dwarfed him. Lewis is 6'4 maybe 6'4 and change barefoot. LL was about 6 even maybe the same height as Kim Wayans who is listed 6' but is likely between 5'11-6'0. LL sometimes (depending on his footwear in the show) barely looked taller than some of the shorter co-stars who aren't over 5'7 or 5'8.

Goose:

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!

---

I believe Conan's full 6'4" may be slightly shaky, but I also think he's really nothing under 6'3.5" either. He's somewhere in the 6'3.5" - 6'4" zone, I'd lean towards the 3.5 but 3.75 or 4 could be the number. Anything over 6'4" has to be thrown out after seeing him next to Liam Neeson, Josh Homme, Charles Barkley, etc. Guys who there is no doubt they at or over the 6'4" mark but probably not a full 6'5". And these guys were noticeably taller.

Conan 6'3.75" give or take
Barkley 6'4.75"
Homme 6'4.5"
Neeson 6'4" - 6'4.25" (although may have shrunk a fraction since)

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.

Canson said on 26/Oct/15
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.
Canson said on 24/Oct/15
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.

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.

@Manletgame

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

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.

@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?

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''.

I agree he is a tall bloke have you saw him next to ice cube and Kevin its funny I know there

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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''.

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.
