Jordan Schlansky is not your typical celebrity whose face is constantly thrown on the media. Rather, he is best associated with ace comedian Conan O’Brien whose shows he appears on as a character who many believe is more fictitious than real. Despite the reservations of many, it has been proven that Schlansky is the TV producer for a good majority of Conan’s shows from Late Night to the self-titled show Conan.
The producer’s very believable portrayal of his self-titled character on Conan’s show has made many very curious to know more about him. To share a bit of his real side with fans, Schlansky set up a Reddit AMA account where he answered questions about his real self. Even with that, the question is still being asked about whether he is real or just another character that TV has created and made us believe really exists. Here is all to know about him.
Is Jordan Schlansky Real?
At first, many thought he was just a character and nothing more; from the awkward facial expression (deadpan) that he makes to send people into hysterical laughter, to the way he goes around expressing his idea about food in an extreme way, a lot of things about Schlansky suggest he is more of a character than an actual real-life person. But to the shock of many, Schlansky is actually a real person whose real-life personality is somewhat different from what he portrays on the show. While it is quite tricky for many reasons, that’s part of the whole drama and intrigue of the show.
Jordan Schlansky was born on the 13th of April, 1973 and is a native of Los Angeles, California. He had his higher education at the University of Buffalo. It is not clear when Schlansky began his career as a producer but he came to public attention when he began working with Conan in 1996 as a studio coordinator for Conan’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien which aired on NBC. It was their first collaboration but certainly not the last as they have worked together on all of Conan’s other shows since then.
As an associate producer on the Conan show, Schlansky works very hard to ensure that graphics and skits are well put together. He also does other things like booking guests, and whatever other assignments the show’s producer delegates to him. As he revealed on Reddit, he was first approached by Conan to join the show during the writer’s strike in 2008 and it has been a success ride since then.
Schlansky has a decent social media presence where he keeps his fans updated on his day to day life. On Instagram, he has more than 126K followers and on Twitter, he has built followership of more than 25K.
What Is Schlansky’s Real Life Character Like?
Since the confirmation that Jordan Schlansky is indeed a real person who lives and breathes outside the Conan show, many have wondered if the real live person often wears the same deadpan expression and the love for Star Wars that the Conan character displays. As seen on the show, Schlansky keeps a huge collection of Star Wars memorabilia which Conan once stumbled upon in his office in one of the episodes. Jordan confessed that it was given to him by some girl he knows.
Although he has tried to help fans understand his real-life person, he has not addressed the questions over whether he loves star Wars in real life. However, speculations are rife that Conan draws from facts about Schlansky’s real life and exaggerates it on the show, to create an effect that viewers will find humorous.
Who is His Wife?
Much to the frustration of his fans, Jordan Schlansky keeps his personal life strictly private. Although he does keep active Instagram and Snapchat accounts as well as Twitter, the associate producer is very careful not to give any real personal information away.
In 2015 when Conan in his typical self, threw Schlansky a forceful and awkward Bachelor party and took him for a marriage counseling class, fans eagerly waited for news of a wedding but it never came. Going by that and how much the producer enjoys keeping such personal details to himself, it can safely be said that he is married although he does not share pictures or anything about his supposed better half on his social media handles.
While details about that have not been further revealed, various online sources have speculated that the name of his wife is Emma Schlansky and the two met in a drugstore. The couple made their home in Los Angeles, California.
