Strike beards fever: Catch it!

Lazer_still_gun Conan O’Brien is back– at least on the Internet.

Like all the latenight hosts, O’Brien has pretty much been out of the public eye since the strike darkened his show. But he has popped up on Latenightunderground.com, the semi-official website of “Late Night” staffers.

Site was launched well before the strike, but since the work stoppage, it’s become the hub of all things Conan. Staffer Aaron Bleyaert has been filling the site with numerous gut-busting videos chronicling life inside a latenight show that’s no longer in production.

David Letterman’s scribes have been serving up the funny on their own website. But while they (not surprisingly) inject a lot of WGA politics into their works, LNU is a politics-free zone, filled with all sorts of absurdist fun (hallway bowling!)

O’Brien made his first LNU appearance a couple weeks ago. On Tuesday, he popped up again in this video (we grabbed the pic above from the video)

The strike beard is coming in very nicely, Conan.
