Conan O’Brien, host of the late-night television show Conan, officiated the same-sex wedding of the show’s costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner, David Gorshein on air. The show spent an entire week filming at the Beacon Theater in New York City specifically to make this legally binding wedding happen. Conan normally films in California where it is currently not legal for same sex couples to wed.
