Conan O’Brien Tells Howard Stern About the Time He Pranked Bill Cosby (Mediaite)

Conan O’Brien was first major late night host to make a joke about the rape allegations against Bill Cosby, but apparently the two comedians have a long history together. On Wednesday, he sat down for an extended interview with Howard Stern and while he was there, he recounted the bizarre story of how he tricked Cosby into thinking he was winning a major award when he was president of the Harvard Lampoon.

“Serial rape aside,” O’Brien wanted to meet Cosby when he was a 19-year-old Harvard student, so he and his friends invented an award that didn’t exist and actually got the comedy legend to come receive it.
