HighSchool Senior Asked Conan O’Brien To Prom, This Was His Epic Reply.

Nikki Simmons always considered herself Conan O’Brien’s biggest fan – so much so she invited him to her High School prom. The bold move didn’t go unnoticed.


Instead of ignoring her heartfelt prom proposal, Conan decided to reply to his young super-fan in the most gracious way.

She says, “I asked Conan O’Brien to prom when I was in eleventh grade… so many many years ago… Although he turned me down, he was awesome enough to write back! I’ll always be a Conan fan!”

Check out the original letter and transcription below, straight from the desk of Conan O’Brien.





Late Night with Conan O’Brien

Jan.24, 2003

Dear Nikki –

Thanks for your very flattering offer. It’s great to know I have such a devoted fan out there, and I’m sure you would make a great prom date (I didn’t go to mine – it’s a very sad story).

Unfortunately, I got married recently and my wife doesn’t allow me to go to proms anymore with cute 16 year old girls. Still, it was very cool of you to ask me. Thanks and have a great evening.

Your Friend,


It’s so great to see someone of Conan’s celebrity take the time to reach out and make a friend. My faith in “celebrity” is restored. 😀
