Conan Writer Publicly Bashes Fallon and Kimmel, Gets Chastised by Boss

Andrés du Bouchet, a writer for the TBS late night talk show Conan, decided last Friday that Twitter was a great place for him to criticize his late night comedy colleagues for letting the “popular kids” take over the talk shows.

Du Bouchet, who’s written for Conan O’Brien for the past six years, obliquely referred to the writers of other shows — Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, specifically — for relying on celebrities as the source of their humor. All of his tweets were deleted, but here’s the content of them,

Comedy in 2015 needs a severe motherfucking shakeup. No celebrities, no parodies, no pranks, no mash-ups or hashtag wars. I’m fat.

@dubouchet and shove your lip-synching up your ass.

Prom King Comedy. That’s what I call all this shit. You’ve let the popular kids appropriate the very art form that helped you deal. Fuck.

None of the funniest stuff ever involved celebrity cameos.

That was satisfying. Sometimes just railing at the impenetrable nonsense of the retardverse is enough, despite my impotence to change it.
— Andrés du Bouchet (@dubouchet) April 17, 2015

Sometime afterwards, however, du Bouchet returned to Twitter to apologize:

Once again I’m a bonehead for tweeting as a fan of comedy instead of as a guy who earns a living doing it.
— Andrés du Bouchet (@dubouchet) April 17, 2015

@guybranum thanks but now comes the inevitable dressing down at work for criticizing other talk shows!
— Andrés du Bouchet (@dubouchet) April 17, 2015

The dressing-down came, but not exactly at work:
