Just for further reference, on his show a few nights ago he mentioned that he was "6-4", 6'5"".
stevo said on 21/May/08
he says on a comedy channel tv ad that he is 6'4.
Clay said on 20/May/08
Bull**** they looked the same height roughly. Conan is not under 6'4''.
Anonymous said on 9/May/08
If you watched his show on 5/8/08 when he had Terrell Owens on the show. TO looked 1 1/2" taller than Conan. TO is listed at 6'3" and he made Conan Look 6'1 1/2" maybe.
Dennis said on 24/Mar/08
He recently said on his show that he's 6ft4.5
Jason said on 8/Mar/08
That's just a mistake from 6'11''. He's about the exact same height as Semmy Schilt, so, whatever height Schilt is, he is. Schilt's been listed at everything from 205-211cm.
Christa said on 8/Mar/08
I went to Conan O'brien in New York, and I'm 6'0" (183cm), and he was way taller than me. Most def. taller than 6'1".
Vegas said on 7/Mar/08
here is a 6'1 listing for Nortje lol as i said before be very careful with internet listings Click Here
Jason said on 6/Mar/08
Don't know about Julius Long, but I've seen Nortje billed as 207cm before. Yeah, that corner man does appear taller when Long and Nortje are facing off, but if you pause at points when he's walking with Nortje back to their corner, you'll see Nortje actually looks to be the taller one by 1-2''. Still, that is one biiig corner man! Two monstrous fighters ... Nortje's put on 10kg, I see. 333lbs ... phuck.
Vegas said on 5/Mar/08
speaking of huge boxers here is 7'1 listed Julius Long in MMA up against 6'11 listed Jan Nortje, keep an eye out when the ref is giving instructions, Nortje's corner man enters the shot and is taller than both guys it seems Click Here
Jason said on 5/Mar/08
& Vegas, I see you agree with me about Undetaker's weight. If you want proof Taker was never north of 300lbs - it's Valuev. He's 320ish, and if Taker was as heavy as him, I'll eat my keyboard! ;)
Jason said on 5/Mar/08
Well, fair enough. I think Valuev's 210cm/6'10 1/2'', for what it's worth.
Jason said on 5/Mar/08
That looks to be because Rodman's more in the foreground. Are there more of them together?

Don't know about Dave Winfield - some baseball listings are rubbish, and he's old now.
Atoadaso said on 4/Mar/08
Jason, I would say the only situation where they will inflate a boxer's height is in a case where the height is a marketable aspect, such as with Nicolai Valuev, who is most likely under 7' but is bumped up just for that marketing sake. I really can't speak for those other sports you list, other than attesting to your accuracy in saying that UFC does inflate heights, as I don't really follow any of the others.

Anyways, I can't change your mind so and that's alright. I'll just say that the only discrepancy that you will find will be shoes on or off, sole thickness, and unit conversions to the imperial system. Of course, not all heights will be accurate but I got the impression you think this is like WWE, where everyone is much smaller than they are on paper.

I will probably be going to watch Wlad fight before he retires, and if all goes well i'll get a photo with him. I would bet he'll be noticeably taller than I am :)
Jason said on 4/Mar/08
Atodaso; I'm talking about the big time. And I've followed boxing for many years, too, and can't believe you don't think they sometimes inflate height. They do it in wrestling, UFC, basketball; football, sometimes. Even tennis. I don't know why you think boxing - of all sports - is an exception.
Vegas said on 4/Mar/08
speaking of rodman here is an interesting shot Click Here

the guy next to him is keyshawn johnson listed at 6'4 by the NFL (i believe Viper said he was measured at 6'3.5" barefoot) and he is about 5" shorter Click Here

Dave Winfield was listed at 6'6 during his playing career and you know magic
Jason said on 4/Mar/08
The vast majority of the time when a celeb/athlete gives their height, it's inflated or actual. While there are, of course, some exceptions (Barkley ... though, I still don't think Rodman is taller than 6'6 1/4'') ... it's a pretty safe bet they're not undercutting themselves. I've always thought Wlad is 196cm/6'5 1/4'', like I said, and he pretty much confirmed it. Atoadaso saying a boxing billed height can't be inflated is just wrong, and this stuff about it being a medical measurement. Boxing is, and historically has been, the most crooked sport around lol.
Atoadaso said on 3/Mar/08
It seems the video has been taken off of youtube.

However, that video is a small fraction of evidence that Wlad is significantly taller than 6'5". As i've said, you can view many pictures of him with, for example, 6'6" McCline, 6'6" Ray Austin, and many others around the 6'4" mark such as Corrie Sanders and TOS.

Vegas, that is a DonKing Production venue, his listing is not necessarily a standard, nor accurate. Boxrec, a database for boxing statistics, has Wlad at 6'6.5", to show you there are discrepancies. Also, I have seen all of his early fights in germany, and he is listed 6'6.5"-6'7" usually.

Jason, i'm a member on a boxing board already, EastSideBoxing, and I have followed the sport for about 10 years, and boxed 4 years myself. I'm not sure why you think heights are inflated, apart from being measured with shoes on. I have not heard of this, from my experiences with the sport. I have personally sparred with 6'4"-6'5" boxers who have not had their heights inflated for the sake of show business, or whatever reason. One guy was about 6'8" at my gym, and I thought he was about 7' until I asked him, heh. As welterweight is about the most popular division at this point, i'd say it's safe to assume most boxing fans do not care how tall a boxer is, and there is no point to inflate heights as WWE would do.

For what it's worth, I myself am 6'5", and from photos and videos in general of Wlad, I am very certain he is not the same height as me, as I do not tower over people quite the same.
Vegas said on 3/Mar/08
i wouldn't use the fact that he said he was 6'5 as 100% proof, people give different heights for themselves all the time up and down ie barkley/rodman/hogan etc, your old chestnut that "lowest listing/claim is usually the correct height" doesn't fly with me either. I could create a professional looking website and claim shaq is 6'2, don't make it true, i could tell someone i was 5 foot, don't make it true either :) The 6'6 boxing listing is more proof that Wlad is not 6'7 barefoot

i gotta see this where big show looked 6'7 next to Conan (i assume that means he only looked 2-3" taller than conan), i know you are only quoting Viper on this but i have seen two appearances of Big Show on Conan and both times he towered him, you can't blame the stage here or the camera angle which is front facing Click Here
Jason said on 3/Mar/08
Sorry mate, you don't have a leg to stand on when the guy himself says he's 6'5''.

Conan's stage is weird ... the wrestler Big Show has appeared 6'7'' with him once, then *inches* taller another time.

And boxing heights are relatively quite often inflated; it's show business. Heck, even stuff like reach is (for intimidation). Ask on any boxing board if you're interested. In fact, I'll do it for you if you choose not to and want to continue this point.
Vegas said on 3/Mar/08
wlad is listed at 6'6 in boxing it clearly shows it here 37 seconds in Click Here

so if he is listed at 6'6 how does that make him 6'7?? i am with Jason on this he looks 6'5-6'5.5" barefoot to me

i would really have to see the video of him and Conan to comment but i suspect it will be something like this where Rock has 3-4" on Conan Click Here
Atoadaso said on 2/Mar/08
Yes, Wlad is 6'7" or thereabouts, it's obvious from dozens of staredowns, face to face, and often barefoot, with other tall HW's around the 6'5", or 6'6" mark, and he will end up taller than them. Professional boxers stats are not inflated, they are medically recorded, and the only discrepency you will ever find is possibly height in shoes, or some incorrect data in translation from the metric system, which is why I believe Wlad said he was only 6'5" on Conan. This is not UFC, or WWE - the stats are valid.

I can use any of Wlad's fights, but recently, his fight with Ibragimov, who is listed at 6'2". If Wlad is around 6'5", then Ibragimov becomes about 5'11", which is ridiculous.

He had about 3.5"-4" on Conan O'brien. In fact, when Wlad came out to greet him, Conan was obviously very shocked at how big he was, as he had to look up to see him.
stevo said on 2/Mar/08
he says on a foxtel ad that he's 6'4
Jason said on 27/Feb/08
I've always said Wlad is 196cm (6'5 1/4''). He isn't 6'7'', he even said himself that he's 6'5''. The reason Wlad appears taller against some guys is because their billed heights are inflated.
Alex said on 23/Feb/08
Adding to what Brah said, Conan has also mentioned on-air that his stage is slanted, so if you don't trust your own judgment of angles, you can take his word for it. :) The "ring spin" segments that aired during the strike are one example -- he points out that he needs to hold one end of the desk up in order to keep the ring spinning in place, because the desk is on an incline and the ring would otherwise fall off its edge.

It's very likely the desk area was intentionally built this way to minimize Conan's height, both to avoid distraction and to ensure that visiting celebs are not seen in unflattering light (appearing short next to Conan). It's only that one part of the set, though -- the rest is even.
TJ said on 23/Feb/08
Mark D, shoes with large heels are not lifts, they are just shoes with large heels.
Mark D. said on 22/Feb/08
Hasselhoff always wears lifts, especially in Night Rider days. Not cheating
kind of lifts short folks wear who don't want you to know they have them on
- but just those shoes with thick heels. Conan probably does not, and that
could fully explain that, plus he's farther from the camera than David...
Hogan also wears lift shoes a lot to look taller than he is to keep his
'rep' as a 'big dude' going. I also believe the part that the stage is
set so those to the left and away from Conan who's at his desk seem a
bit taller, since he is tall, so things would match a bit better...
Atoadaso said on 22/Feb/08
Wladimir Klitschko towered over Conan tonight. I thought it was strange when he said he was only 6'5" when Conan asked him, and said Vitali was 6'7". Wlad is at around 6'7" based on staredowns with other tall boxers - take a look at him with 6'6" Ray Austin, for example. Also there is not much than 1" height difference between him and Vitali, who is very likely 6'8". Anyways, Conan looked about 6'3.5" with Wlad which is probably about right.
Broskie said on 16/Feb/08
Maybe Hasselhoff is taller than 6'4"? I mean, Conan stood next to Bob Saget (who's a legitimate 6'4") and Conan was definitely the taller of the two.
Vegas said on 9/Feb/08
Brah says on 9/Feb/08
When Hasselhoff and Conan stood back to back, Hasselhoff did appear taller

only very slightly maybe half an inch or so and conan is now clearly further from the camera in the shot, their shoulders, legs are at the exact same height though, i would love to see that shot with roles reversed ie. conan in hasselhoffs position and vice versa Click Here
Brah said on 9/Feb/08
I am mentioning all this because alot of people use the show to compare guests and this comes into consideration.
Brah said on 9/Feb/08
When Hasselhoff and Conan stood back to back, Hasselhoff did appear taller.
The camera is not at an angle. It is a straight line forward from where the audience sits.
It is the stage that is at an angle. The way the chairs and desks look in the background of your photos is a dead giveaway of the angle of the stage.

Where Conan stands to give his monologue though is not angled and is a straight-on view.
Vegas said on 9/Feb/08
funny thing is 6'4 david hasselhoff barely looked taller than conan despite being on the left side of the stage, how do you guys explain that?? Click Here

the whole stage has to be tilted if that is the case because here conan meets hulk hogan basically at the entrance way far away from the desk and conan is still shorter than hulk who is no more than 6'4 today Click Here

personally i think the problem is not stage tilt or whatever its camera angle (which you mention in your piece Brah) the michael strahan one is obvious he is miles closer to the camera here than conan Click Here

hogan is slightly closer to the camera here giving a distorted view that hogan is 3 inches taller at least Click Here

then you have the subtle camera angle which is responsible for 99% of the problems on conans shows, the camera angle here Click Here

that same camera angle in the above photo made 6'5ish Charles Barkley look 3-4" taller than Conan
Viper said on 8/Feb/08
Yeah, the stage is tilted that way to make the guests look taller.
Brah said on 8/Feb/08
Vegas, I was using that as an example of the angle of the stage. And I know that because I have seen the Conan O'Brien show in person sitting in the front row. The Rock and Conan are not the same distance from the camera even in that 2005 pic.
You are judging from TV and small pictures. I sat 10 feet away from Conan and know how the stage looks in person! The stage is a raised platform that is tilted inward to the right and the cameraman is focused straight on, without compensating for the tilt.
Anyone who stands on the right side of the stage platform (the "desk" side) is farther away from the camera than someone who stands on the left.
Viper said on 7/Feb/08
Eli Manning just dwarfed David Letterman on his show last night.
Danimal said on 7/Feb/08
Vegas says on 6/Feb/08
here is the clip of strahan and conan, strahan is much closer to the camera so an estimation between the two is very difficult, for once conan's head is half the size of his guests :) Click Here

WOWWWWWWWW are you a hypocrite. When does it end Vegas? WHEN? You post Hogan on Conan, where Hogan is much closer to the camera and you freeze frame saying Hogan has 2" on Conan. WHEN does it end Vegas? When???
Vegas said on 7/Feb/08
Brah says on 7/Feb/08
The episode where Rock shook hands with Conan, they looked the same height. Some even said that the Rock appeared slightly taller, which we know is not the case.

we know that how?? have you measured both and can confirm 100% that conan is indeed taller than dwayne johnson, after all both men say they are 6'4, johnson has a little more going for him because he was actually listed in football with the miami hurricanes at that height, i can't seem to find a 6'4 legit sports listing for conan or indeed 99% of those on tv or in the movies :P

for what its worth i don't think rock is taller than 6'3 but he did look the exact same height as conan in 2005 with both men exactly the same distance from the camera Click Here here in 2006 the angle favours dwayne a bit like it does strahan from the video i posted yday and johnson looks 2-2.5" inches taller than conan because of it Click Here
Brah said on 7/Feb/08
True that guests looks taller on the show. This is because the stage is at an angle. The right side of the stage (where Conan sits or stands to shake hands with the guests)is a little farther back then where the guests come on and sit.
The episode where Rock shook hands with Conan, they looked the same height. Some even said that the Rock appeared slightly taller, which we know is not the case.
AAAA said on 7/Feb/08
Interesting point Alex. That could be true, especially when some one else, hassehoff who may be closer to 6'5, also says 6'4. I never thought of it that way
Alex said on 7/Feb/08
He's between 6'4" and 6'5", just as he says. When he was younger, I believe he used to round to 6'5" more often; now it seems like he more often rounds to 6'4", possibly because he's realized that you can't really get away with rounding up in a profession that involves standing next to so many celebrities.

Either way, he is NOT "infatuated with his height", as poster Atoadaso puts it. Joking about his awkward appearance is part of his shtick, but if you ever run into him in real life, remarks about his height will only get you weary looks -- practically everyone he meets is shocked by how much taller he looks in person than on TV, and I think by now he's a bit bored with the whole thing as a topic of discussion.

And Danimal, O'Brien grew the beard as a writers' strike solidarity thing -- many members of his staff did, too. ;)

He's freakin tall. Standing next to Colbert & Stewart, I didn't realize how tall he was. [Go NJ Giants...lol... No for real, why is their stadium here?]
Viper said on 6/Feb/08
Did anyone see Michael Strahan last night on Conan's show? Strahan is a legit 6-4 and it looked like he had 3 inches on Conan. He made Conan look 6-1. I know thats not reality but it tells you how tall every guest looks on his show.
Eli Manning said on 5/Feb/08
Conan weighs 178 lbs? damn he's skinny, he's like me, 6'4" except i'm 225, and by the way a recent super bowl champion, Go Giants! we rule
Albi said on 5/Feb/08
@Joshua
I have a boxer friend of mine who is 6'3 and 190 and pretty muscular. If you eliminate fat 200 pounds is a pretty strong weight. You cannot be skinny, 200 pounds and just 6'2 at the same time. Wlad Klitchko was muscular-skinny when he entered professional boxing and he was 6'6 and 190 pounds.
Danimal said on 21/Jan/08
I would not go so far as to say 220 pounds is huge on a man who is 6'4", but yes, he was obviously much heavier than he's been the last little while.
derek said on 20/Jan/08
from 1998 to about 2002 he looked like he weighed at least 220.... he looked huge.
Zedrick said on 19/Jan/08
6' 4", good hell! I think his forehead accounts for well over half of his height.
Danimal said on 12/Jan/08
Conan grew that beard for a reason. I personally believe he is sick. I have noticed his cheekbones protruding for some time now. He has lost a considerable amount of weight. If he is only 178 nowadays, he was surely much heavier only a couple of years ago (190-210 pounds).
Joshua said on 12/Jan/08
Im 6`2" and weigh around 195-200 pounds. And Im pretty skinny. 178 lbs for a 6`4" guy! Jesus.
Michael Mills said on 9/Jan/08
Conan is 6'4" he mentioned his personal stats Monday night on his show, he weighs 178 lbs. I have to say that's lanky, thin for a 6'4" guy I myself am that tall and I look thin at 190 lbs.
OutBenchThis said on 8/Jan/08
Hulk was on Late nite the other night..They looked to be the same height when Hulk made Conan stand next to him to flex..but I couldn't see footwear.
Danimal said on 5/Jan/08
He's at least 6'4" and could pass for 6'5" at time. Bare minimum 6'4".

leaning with 5'11 steve martin and 5'7 Loren Michaels Click Here

there is a photo of him having nearly 4" on 6'3 Roger Waters just 2 weeks ago which i didn't post because maybe he is standing on a step or something

the problem is barkley has been downgraded for far too long, he is 6'5 at the very least and he did say he was 6'5.5" on tv in january
Danimal said on 1/Dec/07
Stop it Jason. Conan is not 6'2". He's been next to TOO many tall guests in the last 14+ years to chop him of 2" as you so often do to others.
Brah said on 1/Dec/07
It must've been the camera angle. Conan has looked 6'4" next to many other guests.
Vegas said on 1/Dec/07
yeah and then everyone including hasselhoff, Tom Selleck are down to 6'2 as well, lol

barkley is 1" shorter in photos than Dominique Wilkins, only 6" or so shorter than shaq, nearly the same height as Krist Novoselic, how much more evidence do you need that Barkley is more than 6'4???

conan was 2" taller than Hugh Laurie who in turn was 3" taller than zach braff, no way braff is 5'9 :D
Jason said on 1/Dec/07
He must be around 6'2" after seeing him next to Barkley. Unless the stage is slanted. Conan asked Barkley to stand up for a play confrontation and Barkley was a few inches taller.
Atoadaso said on 28/Nov/07
Sometimes he says he's 6'5". Most of the time he says 6'4", and yeah he seems to be infatuated with his height...

I'd say he's below 6'4". 6'3.5" i'd put him, he just has a tall frame and in bits with Joel the announcer, and Max, he is a giant because those two are short people.
tennebesky said on 24/Nov/07
conan he looks a good 6ft3 at least..
OutBenchThis said on 23/Nov/07
I wonder how many times Conan has mentioned he is 6'4" on his show..it seems like every second show either he or a guest mentions his height.
Danimal said on 12/Nov/07
Leave the man alone. He is 6'4". He had 2" on John Goodman and has measured up to 6'4" to every tall actor and he has stated 6'4" about 2 dozen times since 1993. In fact, he has also stated taller. Those who say he is 6'2" are people who like to makes others shorter.

the other day i saw charles barkley who's probably six four and half these day's and he towered over conan so six three and a quarter sounds right i originally pegged conan at six two.

Originally I thought Conan was short because he is really small frammed, but then i saw him next to some celebs and he seemed quite tall but 6'4!?
LITTLE Dalmatian said on 28/Oct/07
I am from Dalmatia (biggest Croatian province) and i am 192 tall (small). Here when i come to a bar i am normal height, when we see someone small (-175) we act suprised!!!!! There are guys and girls around us taller for couple of inches!!!!!!!
Croat yust for your info, in 1990 Yugoslavia fell apart!!! Now we are seperate people and all that is similare is our language!!!!
Everyone here is very tall because, i believe, we feed Mediteranien!!!!
We eat a lot of fish, and drink a looot of wine. we also work a lot phisically so we had to develop!!!!! sorry for my bad english, i am Croatian born and RAISED!!!!!

Glenn if Conan's 6'4.how tall do you think Tom Gabel from Against Me! is?
Ed said on 22/Oct/07
Yeah Chris I saw the show with Cusack as well and heard him claim 6ft4.5. Conan was going on and on about how Cusack was tall for a celebrity, and then joking how with enough gel and mousse in his hair he'd be 6ft6.

Cusack by the way looked only an inch or so shorter than O'Brien, taller than I expected. I thought he was only 6ft2, but he looked more like 6ft3-6ft3.5 with a pretty big build as well. He was wearing all black so that might have added to it, but he looked like he's put on some serious weight.
Chris said on 20/Oct/07
John Cusack asked Conan how tall he is, and Conan says 6'4.5". I've seen Conan in person 3 times as a studio audience member, and its hard to tell his height in the audience, but he doesn't look as tall as that claims. If I was standing next to Conan he would probably be only an inch taller than me and I'm 6'1.5" but I look taller
Anonymous said on 18/Oct/07
He looked 2 -3 inches taller than Tom from Against Me! Didn't realize Tom was over 6 ft
qwerty said on 14/Oct/07
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?
Mighty said on 10/Oct/07
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.
E said on 29/Sep/07
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.

Ed said on 21/Sep/07
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?
ls said on 20/Sep/07
Here's the clip, Garrett looks massive compare to Conan.
Click Here
The perspective and posture probably favors Garrett, but I really can't see Conan at 6'4 in the video.
ls said on 20/Sep/07
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.

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' males...so 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!!!!

I think he is 6'3.5, not quite a true 6'4, but his mountianous bouffant hair makes him seem even taller
6'3'' JK said on 22/Aug/07
Conan is not 6'6'', he is 6'4''
Viper said on 22/Aug/07
Conan doesnt look to be in the same area code as 6-6.
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.
shiko said on 18/Aug/07
@ E.R that is because the men in the south aren't as tall as the man in the north they are keeping the average down but still there are a lot of 6'3'ers in the north

At 2 minutes he SAYS he is 6'4" to the girls!!!!!!!!!!!! This is in 2007.

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.
5'11.5 guy said on 20/Jul/07
The 7'7 claim for Slavko Vranes is absolute bull****. He is, at best, 7'5.
Scott said on 14/Jul/07
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.
ER. said on 12/Jul/07
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.
loler said on 10/Jul/07
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 just want to know on wich statistic you ground that on, I think the average hight in Sweden is about 5'11 - 6'1, but just like in the US there are people of all different heights, just like every country got people that lies.

No country's average height is over 6'1 if that as the Dutch I believe average out at 6'1.

Lol, Swedes are short and Sweden is known for having short heights such as 5'7-8. And Swedes are also known to lie alot, just look at TPB as an example.
5'11.5 guy said on 16/Jun/07
No offense, but 6'4 is way above average in every country. You are deluding yourself if you think the average Swede is 6'4.

If your boyfriend claims 6'4 and is average height in Sweden, he's fudging his height by 5 inches.
Anonymous said on 16/Jun/07
I thought he was taller, that isn't so tall... I think it's the hair, my boyfriend is just as tall as him and I'm 5'4 and he's quite average. But hey, I live in Sweden, everyone is tall here :) I'm like a midget here ;)
Anonymous said on 26/May/07
about 2 inches taller than hugh laurie in the emmys skit. the only way he is 6`2.5 is if hugh laurie is 6`0.5-6`1. that is not possible. Conan is a flat 6`4. hugh laurie is definetely not less than 6`2. he looks way to tall.
Lauren said on 11/May/07
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.
Cheers,
Arjun
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.
Cheers,
Arjun
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 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.
There
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).
Cheers,
Arjun
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.

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.

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.
Anon said on 12/Sep/06
When he describes his height he always says "I'm 6-4 or 6-5," which leads me to believe that he is in between.
stan said on 7/Sep/06
Conan is in my opinion right on 6'4, while hasslehoff is about 6'4 1/2.
Viper652 said on 4/Sep/06
Hasselhoff is 6-4.
C said on 4/Sep/06
Everyone here is comparing him to Hasselhoff, not knowing that Hasselhof is 6'5''.
Glenn said on 3/Sep/06
Conan is 6-4.
Viper652 said on 3/Sep/06
Not in the pictures I just linked Stan.
stan said on 2/Sep/06
Viper my man, Conan is not under 6'3 alright get it straight stop downsizing people
bob said on 31/Aug/06
Ive met conan in person. I am 6'9", conan was pretty close to me, so I assume he is about 6'5", 6'4". Funny funny guy by the way, he isnt just funny in front of the camera, he's just a funny guy all around!
Viper652 said on 25/Jun/06
Well, Conan looks marginally shorter then Henry Simmons here, who some say is 6-3.

Alex said on 24/Jun/06
I can't see Conan under 6'3.
MD said on 23/Jun/06
Joe, have you seen how long Conan's legs are in comparison to the rest of his body? He's not kidding when he says that his legs take up most of his height, because they really do. Sitting down, Conan could actually appear average height from behind a desk because of his short torso.
Joe said on 22/Jun/06
well of course, he's standing alone and the camera is only shooting him from the waist up. Never assume anyones height from tv or movies, they rarely give a realistic picture of one's height.
Viper652 said on 21/Jun/06
Ive always thought Conan looked shorter then 6-4 in that straight ahead camera shot during his monologues.
MD said on 20/Jun/06
I've never doubted his height, either. He honestly looks his height, and definitely nothing lower than 6'3", for sure.
ER. said on 20/Jun/06
Darren, I meant it only as a joke. Sorry, dude. I think Conan is cool, been following his show for a long time. No worries, and yeah he really looks 6-4. Never doubted it.
Viper652 said on 19/Jun/06
Conan isnt nearly as obsessed as that British tv talk show host. That guy is nuts.
Darren said on 19/Jun/06
nearly everyone? I have only seen a picture with Hasselhoff where he's going back to back with anyone. And how do you know he demanded it? maybe it was Hasselhoff's idea.
ER. said on 19/Jun/06
Man, is Conan so obsessed with height, that he demands to stand back to back with nearly (every) tall celebrity that comes on his show? That's pretty crazy.
Viper652 said on 16/Jun/06
Ehh, Hasselhoff really is no taller then 6-4 though. He can look taller at times because of his build and for being that tall to begin with.
Darren said on 13/Jun/06
There's no way Conan is 6'2. He's definately 6'4, Hasselhoff might be 6'5, he's one of those guys who look taller then they have been said to be. like Steven Seagal, and some shoes have thicker heels but still are not lifts or anything, maybe Hassellhoff wore bigger shoes? And Conan does not wear lifts or anything, you can see that he wears normal dress shoes and when he's somewhere else than on his show he usually wears normal shoes, I saw him here in Finland and he's a huge guy, and his shoes didn't have large heels or lifts inside them, trust me. I saw a picture of him with a fan in Chigago, his fan said he's like 6'2 and conan was right beside him and he was leaning down and making a funny face, and he still was taller than the 6'2 guy.
Viper652 said on 11/Jun/06
Conan just doesnt look 6-4 on his show half the time to me. I could deffinitly see him as a legit 6-2 1/2 like Jason says.
Jason said on 11/Jun/06
I seriously doubt a guy as tall as Hasselhoff would be wearing big heels to try to appear taller. If anyone would be wearing big heels, it's Conan. He's the guy always talking about height and boofing his hair up like that lol. Conan's also appeared in the 6'2 1/2'' range next to a number of other celebrities.
Matt said on 10/Jun/06
He said on his show once "I'm like 6'4 1/2- 6'5". I'd believe it, he is very tall, he looks about 6'4. I guess Hasselhoff was wearing taller heals. They did not show his feet.
Jason said on 10/Jun/06
Conan looks 6'2 1/2'' in the pic where he's back to back with 6'4'' David Hasselhoff. His boofed up hair just makes him look taller.
bikagyura said on 16/May/06
looks even taller than 6' 4 to me
Jake said on 25/Apr/06
Connan didn't quite measure up to 6'4" Hasselhoff. He is probably 6'3.5", and rounds up to 6'4", or goes by his mourning height.
Anonymous said on 21/Apr/06
"He's got to be under 6'4 now". I'd estimate something like 6'3 1/3"
People lose height as they age, men about 0.75 cm per decade, and women about 1.25 cm per decade. You also have to realize that when we wake up, on average we're 1/2 inch taller than when we go to bed. This effect may be greater in very tall people.

When I was 20, I was 5'9.75 during the day, and 5 10.4" when waking up.

Now I'm going to turn 31 in "

he's 6'4", hes even said it talking to a guest who was like 6'8", he was like "when guests come out, they're surprised that im so tall at 6'4", but when you come out im so shocked at how much taller you are"
Chris said on 15/Feb/06
Conan visited the president of Finland. She is 172 cm. In this pic she is wearing high-heels and he is not standing up straight. But he is at least 6'4''.

Kilborn ain't no 6-5, he was 6-4 with shoes on (measurement from his college basketball days)
Mikex said on 29/Jan/06
Hasselhoff looks an inch taller in the photo but it could be the angle.
Anshelm said on 27/Jan/06
Hmmm... based on some comments, as well as my own observations he seems to be shorter than the likes of David Hasselhoff, Liam Neeson, and Renny Harlin – all said to be 6'4". But then again, Conan has appeared taller than other guys said to be 6'4", like Goran Visnjic. So I guess he's 6'4" to the inch, but maybe not to the centimetre.
Anonymous said on 21/Jan/06
In the picture Rob submitted you can see where Conan's hair cut fades from a huge fluff to buzzed sides. Now imagine his whole head buzzed. Would Hasselhoff have atleast 2 inches on him? Their eye levels sort of speak for themselves.
supes78 said on 21/Jan/06
Here's a great pic of Conan standing next to 6'4" David Hasselhoff and it's easy to see that they are the same height. Case closed.

Greg Kilborn (sp?) is apparently 6'5", so he is .5" to 1" taller than Conan.
Jason said on 17/Jan/06
Oh ... I misread and thought you were suggesting would he really be the tallest talk show host lol! Actually, he just may be even so!
Jason said on 17/Jan/06
Don't think so, but being that tall (which honestly, is gigantic compared to the majority of celebrties) and with that hair, he can get away with claiming to be.
Viper652 said on 17/Jan/06
Thing is Jason, wouldnt he still be the tallest talk show host at 6-2.5??
supes78 said on 16/Jan/06
Craig Kilborn at 6'5" was the tallest talk show host, so Conan should have exagerrated more if he was indeed looking for publicity, which is just a ludicrous notion. I've seen plenty of 6'4" celebrities on his show such as Tom Selleck, David Hasselhoff, Dan Laraquette, etc. and Conan was just as tall as any one of them. And I refuse to believe the guy wears lifts for every episode as I've seen his footwear many times when he's doing his physical bits such as hopping on his desk and he always seems to be sporting normal dress shoes.
Jason said on 16/Jan/06
I reckon Conan is more like 6'2 1/2'' minus the hair and shoes. He doesn't appear taller than the Rock (who I believe to be no more than 6'2 1/2'') and he was shorter than Micael Clarke Duncan who sure as hell isn't his listed 6'5''. Why would Conan lie about his height? Cuz it generates publicity if he's billed as the tallest talk show host around.
Anonymous said on 16/Jan/06

Conan looks taller then the rock but if you look at the picture hard you will see that the Rock is just slightly taller. AS you can see conan's hair makes him look taller. the rock is only 6'4"
Anonymous said on 10/Jan/06
well tonight he definitely looked at least 6'4" next to John Tesh who said he was 6'6", Conan looked almost as tall as him, maybe about 1.5" shorter
