Comedian / actor Kumail Nanjiani was a last-minute cancellation of tonight's Conan. It is not difficult for the host: he simply filled the time by showing a clip from a movie showing the new Nanjiani movie Stuber Compete against at the box office.
Nanjiani was delayed because he was filming HBO Silicon Valley, where he plays Dinesh Chugtai Conan reflected that the only previous time he was standing was because of Liza Minelli. Now, I had to deal with "another problematic diva."
Stuber is an action comedy starring Nanjiani, Dave Bautista, Iko Uwais, Natalie Morales, Betty Gilpin, Jimmy Tatro, Mira Sorvino and Karen Gillan. It represents an Uber driver who becomes a reluctant part of a police officer's operation. Produced by 20th Century Fox and distributed by Walt Disney, the film could have used Conan's momentum, given his anticipated comments. See Conan's excavation below.
