Conan O'Brien once fired 'Conan' talk show crew member for being "impatient and rude" to a waiter, claims a former employee. Todd Levin, an ex-staff writer of 'Conan' cited the incident as evidence of the adored talk show host's sincere nobility in a tweet on Tuesday, October 18.

Todd Levin's tweet was also a jab at 'The Late Late Show' host James Corden, who was recently described as the most "abusive customer EVER" by the Balthazar restaurant in New York. The former staff writer began writing, "At CONAN there was a crew member who was fired because Conan witnessed him being impatient and rude to a server at a restaurant. Just remembering that now, for no particular reason."

James Corden's behavior on 'Late Late Show' set revealed as comedian's omelet drama refuses to die down


Conan O'Brien was the host of 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien' from 1993 to 2009, and between 2009 and 2010, he oversaw 'The Tonight Show' for an eight-month period. O'Brien's independent TBS talk show 'Conan' debuted in 2010 and ended in 2021. Levin worked as a writer for O'Brien's 'Tonight Show' and for 'Conan' for 11 long years.  

Coming to Corden's 'omlet' controversy, the owner of the restaurant, Keith McNally, made a series of venomous Instagram posts earlier this week to address James Corden's alleged "abusive" behavior at Balthazar. Because of his alleged treatment of servers, McNally barred the star from Balthazar in SoHo, Manhattan, calling him "the most abusive customer since the restaurant opened 25 years ago." 


The restaurant owner provided two reports from his managers that claimed Corden, who makes $36 million a year hosting 'The Late Late Show', was "extremely nasty" to his employees, Daily Mail reported. The first explained that "after eating his main course, Corden showed the hair to Balthazar manager G who was very apologetic. Corden was extremely nasty to G and said: "Get us another round of drinks this second. And also take care of all of our drinks so far. This way I write any nasty reviews in yelp or anything like that.'" The second instance was more recent. Corden's wife ordered an omelet but there was a little bit of egg white mixed with the egg yolk. The manager's report states, "The kitchen remade the dish but unfortunately sent it with home fries instead of salad. That's when James Corden began yelling like crazy to the server: "You can't do your job! You can't do your job! Maybe I should go into the kitchen and cook the omelet myself!" These events led to McNally banning the 44-year-old from Balthazar.

The owner recently revealed that Corden had called him up and apologized profusely for his behavior. In a new post on social media, McNally wrote, "Feeling strange about the James Corden thing. On the one hand, he was definitely abusive to my staff, on the other hand, I feel really sorry for him right now." He then went on to call himself a "coward" who wants it "both ways". 


Meanwhile, Tod Levin's tweet received huge attention on Twitter with people discussing the hosts' behavior. One user tweeted, "so ,another very powerful man put someone into unemployment to make a point about courtesy. not sure this is the compliment to Conan you'd like it to be; sounds like petulant people throw their weight around to show those around them who is boss and what 'our' priorities are." Another wrote, "Firing people on a whim is actually bad, in my opinion!" One user tweeted, "That the behavior is something that would negatively affect the workplace, so no, i dont think its as bad as mistreating (probably underpaid) workers that get insulted constantly. IMO Conan was sticking up for the waiter and making sure the employee knew that was unacceptable."
