@ 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

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.

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.

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.

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, 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.
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.
Stefanie said on 30/Jun/07
Funeral : since when are swedes known for being short and for being liars ?
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.
lillo thomas said on 29/Jun/07
6-4 is atleast way above average in all the countries in the world , 6-4 guys will tower over almost anyone in any country in the world.
Matt Thomas said on 28/Jun/07
Anonymous if you think 6'4 isnt tall your deluding yourself your also full of crap about 6'4 being average in sweden
Alex said on 22/Jun/07
No country's average height is over 6'1 if that as the Dutch I believe average out at 6'1.
Funeral said on 17/Jun/07
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 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.
Arjun said on 20/Apr/07
Alex, my head is about the same as yours, 9 - 9.5, though I think closer to 9.5 for me. Since I am a weak 5'8", it does'nt look small for my height, I would say definitely average. Some dudes with big hair seem to have average or even biggish heads, it's funny how then one day they turn up with a shaved head or a very short cut and look like pinheads :)
Oh yeah, and Big Show's head is AT LEAST 12 inches long, maybe closer to 13. Most likely around 12.5. Definitely not only 11 - 11.5 inches. Since he's balding, there's no big hair to give the illusion of a bigger head, as in Andre's case (though Andre's head was also equally huge I would say w/o the hair) Kane's head must be around 10 inches, and he looks like a pinhead next to Big Show. He has one of the biggest, if not the biggest, heads that anyone will ever see on a human being.
Alex said on 19/Apr/07
Thats what I was saying that 9.5 inch head isn't small or even 9 inches. These guys like Big Show and Andre had heads 11-12 inches.
Viper said on 13/Apr/07
My head is 9.5 inches. I thought it was 10 but I measured wrong.
Alex said on 12/Apr/07
Anna, I am almost sure its 9 inches. 9.5 inches at most but its not 10 inches though. My head looks about average for my height I think.
Viper, how long is your head?
Viper said on 9/Apr/07
9 inches isnt that small Anna. Its on the shorter side for a tall person but it doesnt look weird. Now 8 inches would look weird.
J-Dog said on 9/Apr/07
The guy is obviously 6'4" no question about it the clip with Hugh Laurie who is 6'2.5" just goes to show you even more so.
supes78 said on 4/Apr/07
Who hasn't looked shorter or taller than their actual height, though?
Viper said on 4/Apr/07
Conan has looked shorter thant 6-4 in pics though. Its not just his show.
said on 3/Apr/07
Yeah, I noticed that too. The height difference between Hugh Laurie and Conan of a good 2 inches can be seen at 4:10 of this youtube clip:
The whole segment is freakin hilarious.
Joey said on 13/Mar/07
Conan's definitely 6'4". Watch the 2007 Emmy intro video. Conan's at least 2 inches taller than Hugh Laurie who is a solid 6'2".
Danny said on 6/Mar/07
There is no way that Conan is under 6-3, a lot of the times it appears that he is only slightly taller than most of the guests due to the camera angles in which Conan is always further away from the camera and slightly leaning forward, when he actually gets up, say during a segment, and is right next the guest only then does his real height come through...also take note of his footwear which hardly gives him any extra height..
Alex said on 22/Feb/07
Its gotta be Conan's hair that makes him apppear taller than he really is. I'd say he is 6'3 now rather than 6'4.
timber said on 7/Feb/07
I agree with Viper's estimate of 6-2.5 on 26/Dec/06, because last night on his show he appeared 4 inches taller than 5-8.5 guest Emily Deschanel. She appeared to be wearing 4 inch heels, making her 5-11.5 and Conan 6-3.5 in shoes.
Alex said on 5/Feb/07
Arjun, how long is your head? My head is 9 inches when I measured it. So someone who is 5'3-5'4 comes to my chin.
Arjun said on 19/Jan/07
Alex, my eye level is 5 inches from my skull top, and I'd say that's pretty much average for most people. Atleast most people who are exactly my height look me right in the eye, plus or minus a few mm. And it's surprising that there is very little correlation of forehead length with total height , many of the guys with big foreheads are'nt tall at all, and many taller guys have smaller foreheads
(although there is a fair correlation of face length, and therefore total head length with height) Anyhow, this forehead and eye level stuff
usually accounts for an inch max. Most people will have anywhere from 4.5" - 5.5" to their eye level.
will be practically no one with 4" or less (or 6" or more) to their eye level.
As for upper body/legs, Khali and Big Show both have short legs and long torsos. However, them being wrestlers, I think it actually suits them more than the opposite (long legs with short torso).
Alex said on 11/Jan/07
Thats good to be equal. It looks funny with the people who have very long upper bodies and short legs. Normally guys who are on the short side.
Viper said on 10/Jan/07
I think Im half and half with legs and upper body.
Alex said on 10/Jan/07
Are you more upper body or legs? I'm a mix of both but I believe I'm a little more legs than upper body because no way can I wear a 32 inseam. I'm a 34 inch inseam and about 6'0 1/2. My friend who is 6'5 is an easy 36 inseam but my other friend is 6'3 and a 32 inch inseam as he is more torso/upper body.
Viper said on 10/Jan/07
I was surprised it measured out that much because it looks average to me. I think the top of my head just slopes up more than most.
Alex said on 9/Jan/07
You have long head if its 10 inches or more, no disrespect.
Viper said on 9/Jan/07
I think my head is over 10 inches, maybe closer to 11 even.
Alex said on 8/Jan/07
How long is your head in total? Mine is about 9 inches flat I measured it at. Take your barefoot height then take a measuring tape and see what height comes to the bottom of your chin and you should get it like that.
Viper said on 8/Jan/07
Yeah Alex, my eyes are more 5-5.5 inches from the top of my head.
Alex said on 8/Jan/07
Someone's eyes can be higher than someone else's and they can still be the same height. My eye level is 4.5 inches from the top of my head but some guys with longer forehead are 5-5.5 inches from the top of their head.
Viper said on 8/Jan/07
I thought I had to look more up at him, but that doesnt mean he was taller than me though. I dont know, he could have been my height.
stan said on 7/Jan/07
Viper how tall are you and when you looked at the guy at work did you look at him right in the eye or a little below his eye
Ade said on 7/Jan/07
Haven't watched the show in a few weeks. Been busy. ;)
But I agree with 6'4" for Conan.
Viper said on 7/Jan/07
Alex, I mentioned some guy I worked with says he is 6-3, but he seemed closer to 6-4 to me. He might have been more 6-3 1/2 or a little over. I just felt like he was marginally taller than me. Sometimes Id feel taller though. We might have been the same height, but he just gave the impression of being taller then a flat a 6-3 most of the time, and he had a very broad build too.
James said on 7/Jan/07
Viper, if Conan is 6'2.5", then that would make Will Ferrell under 6'2", which he definitely is not.
Ade, John Mayer was also on Conan's show about a week ago and appeared a good 2 inches shorter. Without the slouch and a guitar strung from his shoulder, I still see at least an inch difference between these two guys.
If you're a regular viewer, you'd know that, walking on the streets of New York, Conan can look like Rodan with a pompadour. He is indeed 6'4".
Ade said on 6/Jan/07
When John Mayer was a guest on the show a year back Conan was half an inch taller. He could be 6'3.5" but no less. No way has he lost an inch in height, he's not that old.
Alex said on 5/Jan/07
Viper, has their ever been someone who has claimed to be the same height as you and were shorter than you by more than a bit.
Viper said on 31/Dec/06
Barrack is a smart guy too. He must be blind in one eye or something.
Alex said on 28/Dec/06
I'd actually give Conan more 6'3 but he could be 6'2.5 though. I don't think he's 6'4 anymore. His hair gives him a bit of height you can see too.
Viper said on 26/Dec/06
Rock is more 6-2. I still think Conan is 6-2 1/2 Max now.
Larry said on 25/Dec/06
I don't know, I watched that episode pretty carefully and Stern seemed about an inch taller. You have to remember that every time a guest comes in they shoot him from a low angle and behind the guest, so they allways seem taller then they really are.
Howard Stern danced with Conan and put his head on his shoulder, they almost seemed the same height.
Anonymous said on 20/Dec/06
Conan is only 6'3" bar none. Howard stern was on the conan O"Brien show and he was at least 2 to three inches taller than Conan. Stern is listed at 6'5".
James said on 8/Dec/06
Nealon has to be 6'4". His height is the first thing I noticed about him, especially in Happy Gilmore. And indeed, if he actually straightened up, he'd be as tall as Conan.
Alex said on 8/Dec/06
Sometimes a stadiometer can be off a bit like 1/4-1/2 inch. It depends on how straight your head is or if the bar is on any slight angle it can make you taller or shorter. Last year I got on one and the doctor said I was 6'0-6'1 and didn't even give an accurate number, lol.
Anthony said on 8/Dec/06
Cantstop, I agree that the shorter cast made Nealon seem taller. In fact, I though that made him look taller than 6'4. I used to think he was 6'6 or so. He does slouch a lot, but when he straighrns up he easily looks 6'4.
Danimal said on 7/Dec/06
Nealon was slightly taller than Conan a few years ago and Nealon had Foreman by at least 2" on SNL. He slouches, but he is tall.
MD said on 7/Dec/06
Yeah, Nealon, if anything, has looked taller than his listed height, and not shorter.
Anthony said on 7/Dec/06
Seriously? He always came off as taller than 6'4 to me. And as Danimal pointed out on his page, he was 2 inches taller than George Foreman on an "SNL" sketch. Nealon's at least 6'4.
Viper652 said on 7/Dec/06
You know, Nealon has never come across as a 6-4 guy to me, at least on television.
Anthony said on 7/Dec/06
Sorry, but there is no way Nealon is 6'2. If you've ever seen him on "SNL", he looks even taller than 6'4.
Anthony said on 6/Dec/06
Nealon is definitely 6'4, and I think Conan truly is 6'4. I agree that while he can look a little lower on the show, tv and films aren't always the best way to judge height. I really do think Conan truly is 6'4.
MD said on 6/Dec/06
6'4" Kevin Nealon was on Conan last night/this morning and they were the exact same height. Is Kevin Nealon not 6'4"?
James said on 6/Dec/06
How is that the most accurate? Even if the person's eyes are level with the top of your head, there are so many flaws with this method. Why even have stadiometers if they're less accurate than measuring tape?
Alex said on 5/Dec/06
The most accurate measurement is for someone to take measuring tape while you're standing up barefoot and measure you that way.
James said on 4/Dec/06
Those doctor's stadiometers are as accurate as it gets. People are just disappointed after being measured that way and finding out they're not as tall as they thought (usually about an inch shorter).
Alex said on 16/Nov/06
If I see this guy who is 6'2.5 again which I will soon I should ask him how tall he is and watch him saw 6'4 still after getting measured at 6'2.5 barefoot at the doctors. Those doctor stadiometers aren't always the best to go by either.
Alex said on 15/Nov/06
Viper, yea some even me I will admit with favorite stars we tend to be more generous to them.
Viper652 said on 15/Nov/06
Cantstop, did you see the pics I linked where he is shorter than 6-3 Henry Simmons? I got called out at one point for supposedly downgrading celebs and being insecure, lol. I guess If your favorite star is shorter in reality you might go postal I guess.
Viper652 said on 15/Nov/06
Barkley is 6-4-6-4 1/2 Max.
lillo thomas said on 15/Nov/06
barkley cant be taller than jordan . at best the are the same height. between
6'4 and half and 6'5. Some times jordan looks a little taller than barkley in some pics.But this can be because body frame
Danimal said on 14/Nov/06
I don't see Barkley at less than 6'5" though. I say he was 6'6 1/4" with shoes and 6'5" without. I believe that Jordan was 6'5.5" with shoes and more like 6'4" without.
anonymous said on 13/Nov/06
His hairdo is 6'4! I don't buy it, because he has a short torso and long legs. I'd give him 6'2.5 the most.
Alex said on 13/Nov/06
Viper, also the funny thing is this. He stills says 6'4 after he gets measured at 6'2.5.
Alex said on 13/Nov/06
Well I knew this guy for 8 years. He would always said 6'4 other than once when he said 6'5. Then last year he was measured at the doctor and said he was 6'2.5 after someone bought up that he was 6'4 since a couple of us were talking about height. Honestly he does look a full 6'3 to me but I have a picture with him when I was 6'0 flat and he doesn't look over 6'2.5. I could try to scan it if I can get someone too. 1.5 inches isn't too much off but its a noticeable difference though for sure. But even before he said he was measured at 6'2.5 I got a feeling he was def under 6'4 because when I met my friend who is a legit 6'5 guy, maybe closer to 6'5.5 was taller than him by a few inches when I compared them by looking at them at different times since I they were never together. Would be interesting to see the 2 together.
Chris said on 9/Nov/06
When Conan was in Finland and talked to the president Tarja Halonen who´s 172 cm, Conan looked 20 cm taller, she wore high heels.
Viper652 said on 8/Nov/06
Did you make fun of him by being so off on his height?
Alex said on 7/Nov/06
Viper, Conan can look a 6'4 guy a lot but maybe his hair is giving him a bit, but he's 6'3 minimum though. Barkley has said to be just under 6'5 I believe and Barkley could be 6'5 but no more and more likely 6'4.5 but he's over 6'4 though. And I do agree at 6'2.5 you can get away with 6'4. There is this guy who did live next door to me who claimed to be 6'4 for years and even 6'5 once but he got measured at the doctor at 6'2.5 even though I thought he was 6'3 flat though.
Viper652 said on 3/Nov/06
6-4ish Charles Barkely had him by 2 inches.
DaMan said on 2/Nov/06
Conan never looked 6'4" to me, when I first started watching him years ago I though he was 6'2" - 6'3", kinda surprised me when I first heard him say he was 6'4". Anyway, I don't think he is a solid 6'4".
Franco said on 19/Oct/06
I am a legit 6'4" (193 cm) and i met Conan here in Italy last year at the RITZ Hotel, that day i had the usual flat shoes and he was going out of the hotel, amazingly i asked him if he's the real Conan o'Brien and he really was!
now, i was in flat shoes and he had the usual suite shoes and i can assure you he was about 1 cm shorter than me. i can absolutely state he is 1.92cm based on personal experience. 6'3 1/2 is his true height and he rounded it to 6.4" when anyone asks.
actually i think he really WAS 6'4", no doubt at all! but at this age NOW he must've lost something and went down a tiny bit.
that's what i saw with my own eyes. :)
Viper652 said on 12/Oct/06
I personally dont think Conan is 6-2 1/2 either. But he can look it in pics sometimes. I think hes 6-3 1/2 bare minimum.
Viper652 said on 12/Oct/06
You can pass for 6-4 at that height.
James said on 12/Oct/06
6'2.5" for Conan is just laughable. The guy is clearly taller than that. Besides, I don't think he could get away with talking about height on his show as much as he does if he were under 6'4". He would just look like a fool.
Viper652 said on 9/Oct/06
I agree Jake. I linked pictures where Conan looked marginally shorter than 6-3 Henry Simmons. I think Conan could be anywhere from 6-2 1/2 to 6-4. Hes hard to pin down.
Jake said on 6/Oct/06
If Hasselhoff is 6'5", than Ryan Lee Stiles would have to be 6'7" - but this is obviously not the case (he's generally referenced to as 6'5" or 6'6".) So now that we know Hasselhoff isn't any more than 6'4", we can compare him to Conan in those pics. Seeing that Hasselhoff looks marginally taller, it becomes ridiculous to even mention 6'5" for Conan. He might be 6'4", but lets stop calling him "6-4 or 6-5".
sf said on 4/Oct/06
Said he was 6'4" again, last night, although I think the show was one of those late night re-runs.

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!
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.
Sal said on 17/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
andrew butthead said on 23/Mar/06
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''.
Viper652 said on 3/Feb/06
Hasselhoff is a legit 6-4 dude, that would make Conan 6-3 in that pic.

Conan Looks A Solid 6'4"
cantstop25 said on 30/Jan/06
in that photo with conan and hasselhoff, hasselhoff is standing up perfectly straight where conan is actually leaning back, though i still think that dave is still slightly taller
Forever_69 said on 29/Jan/06
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.
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.

Well, he's at least 6'4" because he was standing taller than Will Farrell, who's 6'3".
Danimal said on 17/Jan/06
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
He said on his show that he's 6'5"!
[Editor Rob: he's growing!]

F I N A L L Y! Someone else can see that his hair puts about two inches on him. Thank you!
cantstop25 said on 12/Jan/06
look at this picture Conan
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
gyllenhaalic823 said on 17/Dec/05
WOW! He's tall! I was watching a preview of an episode with him and Nancy O'Dell (5'9.5" with shoes = around 5'11"-6'0" because she was about five inches shorter than him) I think that this height is correct, however, if Nancy was wearing flats then his height should be downgraded two inches.
Anonymous said on 1/Dec/05
He's 6'4 1/2" according to oksection.com
mac1 said on 28/Nov/05
Conan is definately 6ft4. He is huge compared to the majority of his guests and you can tell when he walks on at the beginning of the show that he is a tall man.
Mr. Awesome said on 16/Sep/05
Yes, Rob; I think that Conan might be slightly over maybe .5 inch or .75 inch, and that Saget is about an inch under 6'4'', maybe even as low as 6'2.5'' at this age.
Qwerty said on 14/Sep/05
If he says he;s 6ft-4 hes that, he looks it.
mjd said on 27/Aug/05
You have Saget listed as 6'4.....hmmmm...interesting....about a week ago he was on conan and was about an inch shorter than him...Conan is a very tall man....He's IMO 6'5....perhaps 6'4.5
[Editor Rob: I have Saget and Conan both listed at what they've said...it is conceivable one might be slightly under 6ft 4, one slightly over?]
Mr. R said on 19/Aug/05
Sam, thnaks for supporting my view that the position of tv cameras affect our perception of their height.
sam said on 19/Aug/05
When guests come out, the camera is usually behind them or close to them, so it tends to make them look taller next to Conan when they shake hands. I've noticed multiple times that 6'4"ish guests seem taller than Conan, but if they stand next to him in a more centered shot at the end, he is as tall or taller than them.
cantstop25 said on 11/Aug/05
ehh ignore my comments he probably is 6'4" saw him last night and this time when him and bob saget shook hands they stopped and talked to each other while still standing and they were the same height. IM wathcing the show now and he is only about an inch taller then donald trump. I was judging his height from when they go to shake hands with the celebrities however maybe it is just a weird camera angle. also his hair does make him look taller
cantstop25 said on 8/Aug/05
"Actually Tim Robbins looked 1 inch taller than conan"
well that is because when conan went to go shake tims hand he leaned in, he always does that. Later on however when the show is closing and conan goes to shake hands with isla fisher and tim the camera turns away right when conan was about to shake tims hand however for that split second it seemed as though from that angle tim was looking up at conan.
cantstop25 said on 26/Jul/05
he was atleast the same height as 6'5" tim robbins who was on his show last friday. I couldnt believe it his man is indeed very tall, everytime a celebrity comes on his show they often remark about his height. IM going to up his height again to 6'5"
[Editor Rob: hey, if you do that, then I'll be having to upgrade David Hasselhoff to 6ft 5.5 then!!!]
cantstop25 said on 21/Jul/05
i think conan is above 6'4". like 6'4.5". THe thing is when guests come on to his show when he goes to shake there hands he always leans over. When there are taller guests on his show he does not do this and you see how tall he is. He is taller then jeff goldblum and bob saget. Last night big 6'5" Michael Clarke Duncan was on his show and MCD was just slightly taller prob about half of an inch.
Anshelm said on 10/Jul/05
Finnish 194 cm (usually rounded to 6'4") tall director Renny Harlin looked to be about 2 cm taller than Conan, when he visited his show. Though by one-inch accuracy 192 cm is close enough to 6'4". Also, I've noticed that Conan is usually taller than guest who say they're 6'4"...
mjd said on 7/Jul/05
Ive watched Conan and at times hed insinuate hes 6'5...I remember a segment in which conan was asked how tall he was...and he replied "6'4-6'5"...so hes definetly something in between their
MikeZ said on 26/Jun/05
I would think conan is around minimal 6'3.5 without shoes, but i personally believe he is 6'4... hes not 6'3 and definately not 6'2. Andy richter was 6'2 and the height difference was clear.
sam said on 9/Jun/05
Conan always has said 6'4". When people say he's 6'5" or 6'6", he says 6'4". When people say 6'3", he still says 6'4". Conan is exactly 6'4", end of story everyone.
Drew said on 8/Jun/05
Why would Conan lie about his height? Did he ever say how tall he is anyway? If he did, I wouldn't understand why he'd lie about his height...why would he wanna be more than 6'3"?
Jason said on 5/Jun/05
It's possible Roger Moore might still be around 6'1'', some guys shrink less than others. My Grandfather was 6'1 1/2'' in his prime and today, at 73, still stands 6'1 1/6''.
[Editor Rob: yes, some people might lose only very small because their bones/cartilage and posture is great.]
Anonymous said on 4/Jun/05
Another case in point, when Roger Moore was on Conan right before he had a heart attack or was it a stroke on stage? Anyway he was doing that play in New York.
Well Roger Moore at about age 76, who was listed in his mid 40's while Bond at 6-1, I SWEAR, if anyone can get this show or has ti taped....
Moore stood like half an inch from Conan, they REALLY got close, Conan is a HUGE Bond fan, and a HUGE fan of Roger Moore, it was a strong, genuine, close embrace.
If Roger Moore is STILL 6-1, and if that is STILL without shoes, then Conan is 6-3 without shoes. However is Moore 6-1 without shoes at age 76?
I will give Conan 6-3, and nothing more. Either that or Roger Moore is MUCH taller than people think, as with the height of 6 feet here on this site.
David said on 4/Jun/05
Well Conan O'Brien ain't no 6-4, because Hasselhoof claims he's 6-4 as does Tom Selleck, BOTH have ONCE YEARS ago when they FIRST appeared on Conan stood back to back with Conan.
Conan is 6-3, NOT 6-4.
Mr. R said on 2/Jun/05
Beaner, I saw Conan a few years ago, and he was pretty close to 6-4, even without the hair. Notice when he greets his guests, he stoops over a lot and we rarely see a shot when he is standing straight. I saw him standing straight, and I say he is 6-4.
mjd said on 23/May/05
beaner..your crazy...when conan did his show in toronto i checked it out a few times and he "i sware to god" is 6'5-6'6...I played basketball my whole life..me being 6'2 and most of my teamates in the 6'0-7'0 range..i have a great eye for height...and he's 6'5...hes a bit too tall to be 6'4....and 6'2 as you stated is ludacris...I'm the same height as the producer of the show and thats how i got my tickets....and he was ATLEAST 3 inches shorter then the coneZONE.mark it..conan Obrian is 6'5..6'6 with shoes

he is 6'4" according to my friend. he said he met conan and he was no taller then me and I am also 6'4". i was actually surprised because I watched his show and I notice that he is slightly taller then jeff goldblum and bob saget. those are two guys who may be liek 6'3.5" and they round up which is fine. however conan is one of the few celebrities who are the actual height they say they are. my theory is that the majority of celbrites (especially the ones uinder 6'" add 2 inches
pierre bernard said on 14/Apr/05
hey, i work on the show, and i take notice of his height compared to various guests - for example the 'rock' came on one day, he is quoted to have said he is 6'5, now i noticed conan was at least his height, HOWEVER i dont believe the rock is a genuine 6'5, i believe conan is 6'4 1/2 - 3/4
