It's conversations like this that remind you there are tons of talented people out there, but luck and especially timing plays a huge factor for many of the actors who "make it". I think Plaza is a unique comedic presence, and I'm glad the doors opened for her.

I’m glad she can finally just have a conversation without having to deflect or be goofy. Seems like she’s more comfortable being herself now which is always a good thing to see.

It's so nice to see Aubrey comfortable and having regular conversations. I've always admired her for how she used awkwardness in a humourous way to combat her anxiety.

This is one episode where I'd really appreciate the whole video version. Aubrey and Conan have such incredible chemistry and half the fun goes if it's audio only.

An actual conversation where it’s not pre rehearsed. That’s why she’s so relaxed in this clip.

Credit to Aubrey for all her success. But her story is a good indicator that success is sometimes pure luck - and it's refreshing to see her acknowledge that and point out her reluctance to even try to go far.

Aubrey Plaza is like an old time celebrity where you can’t tell if their persona is a bit or not. 🤣

She is naturally funny! Everyone talks about parks & rec but I also loved her performance in Legion. An underrated role in an underrated show.

April is one of the funniest characters on TV. She's a little bit evil, but in a fun way, who loves to mess with people for her entertainment. Her behavior was side splittingly funny. Aubrey was the perfect actress to pull it off. How she kept a straight face during interviews is beyond me. They were considering hiring her. She almost told them to "Get lost dude" ... Perfect, your hired!!! 🤣

Aubrey is too cool! Gets the break of a lifetime and says “great, I didn’t even want to be on TV”. 😂

I always felt like she just showed up on set and they rolled with it.

Sona’s not here because two apathetic assistants in one room would just be too much.

I love how Conan just riffs with people, even when it might be insulting. If you haven’t heard bill hader’s Conan “impression”, the whole clip is amazing.

She has one characteristic that got her those roles…. She’s unforgettable.
