Liza Powel O’Brien and Conan O’Brien
Nobody kept late-night shows as fresh and funny as Conan O’Brien, and now, he’s dominating the podcast-sphere. There’s something about his over-the-top silliness that keeps audiences laughing—that and his freakishly long legs and pastry haircut. The Harvard graduate towers over most people at 6 feet 4 inches, including his 5-foot-8 wife, Liza Powel.
Liza worked as a playwright for Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and while shooting footage for a skit that her company produced in 2000, they fell in love. 18 months later, they tied the knot, and for the next 20-plus years, they’re still together wherever they go.
