NBC’s Conan O’Brien Gets Married

January 13, 2002 GMT

SEATTLE (AP) _ Late-night funnyman Conan O’Brien tied the knot Saturday to Liza Powell, a Seattle ad executive he met when she made an appearance on his show.

``Sorry about the rain,″ O’Brien quipped as he and his new bride emerged from the James Cathedral under an umbrella after the afternoon ceremony.

The pair became engaged last July, about a year after Powell met O’Brien while appearing on his show in a skit about advertising.

O’Brien, 38, is in his ninth season on NBC’s ``Late Night with Conan O’Brien.″

O’Brien’s longtime friend and Harvard roommate, the Rev. Paul O’Brien, officiated. The two are not related.

The service, which was closed to all but invited guests, was attended by ``Friends″ actress Lisa Kudrow and several on-air staffers from O’Brien’s show.

O’Brien, a native of Brookline, Mass., lives in New York.
