Andy Richter will reunite with his old Late Night buddy, Conan O’Brien, NBC announced today. The comedic actor has signed on as the announcer of NBC’s The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, which begins June 1. Richter — who gave up his post as Conan’s Late Night sidekick in 2000 and went on to headline two TV series, Andy Richter Controls the Universe and Andy Barker, P.I. — will also be seen in the new show’s comedic bits. There was apparently a tease of this reunion last week: Richter returned to O’Brien’s couch for his final Late Night telecast on Feb. 20.
