Hank Aaron and Louis C.K. were on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” together in 1993

Last night on Twitter comedy historian Kliph Nesteroff unearthed this gem of Hank Aaron and Louis C.K. on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” together in 1993:

Back then Aaron was still the all-time home run king, C.K. was an unknown writer for O’Brien’s show, and people knew who Dan Cortese was.

    I hope Cortese saved some of his money. Haven’t seen him in anything I have watched in a long time.

      It’s been a long time, but he recently resurfaced on TruTV:

    … and William F. Buckley was still alive and Max Weinberg was the bandleader of The Max Weinberg 7 on Conan.

    Oh my god that was painful. (PS love how Buckley got left out here).

    Kurt Vonnegut has a great essay about how WIlliam F. Buckley is the man he admires most. They don’t make em like that guy any more.

    As far as Louis CK and Hank Aaron — well, they should make lots more of them as well. Even if this was a really stupid skit. Whatever — I like everyone in it a whole lot, Max included.
