O’Brien led late night in the ’90s on NBC, and on Sunday, author and comedy historian Kliph Nesteroff posted a link to a YouTube playlist of more than 50 Late Night with Conan O’Brien episodes from back when Reese and Ryan were still together.

Of note is the debut episode from 1993: O’Brien addresses the “pressure” he faced to be as funny as David Letterman with an opening scene in which he hangs a noose in his dressing room.

There’s also Jim Carrey at the height of his Jim Careyness, some dated jokes about Monica Lewinsky, and Hunter S. Thompson shooting the NBC logo.
