Jordan Schlansky Bio/Quick Facts
Jordan Schlansky is not your typical celebrity, and as a result, not much information about his life has been made public. However, the media does know that he was born on the 13th of April, 1973 and that he hails from Los Angeles California.
Schlansky’s very believable portrayal of his self-titled character on Conan’s show 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.
It’s not clear to the public when Schlansky began his career as a producer but he began working with Conan in 1996 as a studio coordinator for Conan’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien which aired on NBC. He has not stopped working for Conan since then. Schlansky was the producer of the 10th Anniversary Special of Late Night and Late Night’s: The Best of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
As an associate producer on the Conan show, Schlansky’s job role would include ensuring that graphics and skits are well put together, booking guests, and whatever assignment 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.

Is Jordan Schlansky Real?
To answer that question quickly, Jordan Schlansky is a real person. He has been active in producing as far back as 1996 or even earlier. However, when he was introduced to Conan’s segments as a character named Jordan Schlansky, viewers of the show began to wonder if Schlansky’s weird and awkward personality on the show was same in real life and if there was even a real-life person named Jordan Schlansky.
At first, many thought he was just a character and nothing more, but Schlansky is a real person whose real-life personality is somewhat different from what he portrays on the show. It is quite tricky for many reasons, but we guess that’s part of the whole drama and intrigue of the show.
His character on the show is an associate producer of the show which is a true fact in real life, this is majorly why people get confused if the rest of his behaviour on the show is real as well. Well, the Jordan Schlansky on the show shows sophisticated knowledge for food which he expresses in his usual funny way. It may be true that the real-life Schlansky does know about food but may not always go around expressing it in such an extreme way as he does on the show.
Schlansky on the show rarely laughs, but his always awkward facial expressions (aka deadpan) and lines combine to send anyone breaking into hysterical laughter. This is another fact that makes fans wonder if the real Schlansky has a career in comedy, but he doesn’t. Many fans of the show have even compared his comic ability to that of Conan O’Brien. Schlansky is a good actor and it would be nice if the world could see more of what he can pull off on camera.
Another thing about the fake Schlansky which has left many wondering if it applies to the real one is his love for Star Wars. As seen on the show, Schlansky keeps a huge collection of Star Wars memorabilia which Conan stumbled upon in his office in one of the episodes; after which Jordan confessed that it was given to him by some girl he knows.
Whether the real Jordan Schlansky is such an avid fan of Star Wars as he is on the show remains a mystery. However, we speculate that Conan draws from facts about Schlansky’s real life and exaggerates it on the show, for the business which is laughter.
Who is his Wife, Fiancé?
Much to the frustration of his fans, Schlansky keeps his personal life strictly private. Yeah, he does keep an active Instagram and Snapchat account but the associate producer is very careful not to give any real personal information away.
But is he married? fans have wondered since that 2015 episode when Conan in his typical self, threw Schlansky a forceful and awkward Bachelor party. The identity of the woman has never been revealed.
