Pierre Bernard’s Recliner Of Rage

Action figures

The segment sees Pierre complaining about the Justice League Unlimited action figures.


Pierre complains about the seasonal release of the Nabisco snack Mallomars because despite the company’s claims its limited release is due to summer temperature and the difficulty in storing them in such heat. Other chocolate covered-related products are still regularly produced and distributed.

Case Closed

He complains about The Cartoon Network putting Case Closed on during Cowboy Bebop’s usual airtime. Pierre dislikes Case Closed’s campy 1970s style tunes compared to Cowboy Bebop’s jazzy ones which helped him sleep. Coincidentally, Case Closed’s main character takes the assumed first name of Conan.

Stargate SG-1

One segment garnered Pierre a cult following in the Stargate SG-1 community. Its initial segment was a complaint that Stargate SG-1 was better without Dr. Daniel Jackson (played by Michael Shanks). Michael had left SG-1 after the fifth season only to return for the seventh season, and Pierre felt Jackson’s involvement with the team averted too many action sequences.

After the SG-1 production team saw the sketch, they were so much excited that Bernard gave SG-1 national TV publicity that they offered him an extra role on an episode of SG-1 as a technician named O’Brien (for Conan O’Brien). His filming process was recorded and aired as a remote segment on Late Night. When he was asked if he would return for another episode, he showed a clip where his character is shot after he greets an off-screen Dr. Jackson.

Pierre was then invited to an SG-1 convention as a famous guest, which was also recorded and aired as a “remote” on Late Night.

Bernard then appeared in the 200th episode of SG-1, now as a zombied O’Brien, and he is shot by a main character. The behind-the-scenes production of it was shown on the May 5, 2006, episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

Pierre was interviewed by The Scifi World about his appearances on SG-1 in 2006.

After the show was canceled, he returned in another segment of Recliner complaining to the Sci Fi Network regarding the show’s cancellation. In a later episode of the show, O’Brien allows Bernard to come on the show and rant about the cancellation of Stargate SG-1. In a follow-up sketch to this rant, O’Brien announced that he would do Pierre a favor by having Jon Lovitz call the Sci Fi Channel to ask programming executive Mark Stern to reverse the cancellation.

Bobblehead collection

After receiving an Empire Today bobblehead doll, Pierre decides to begin a bobblehead doll collection. However, after ordering 60 bobbleheads, Pierre finds that some were in fact figures in which the head remains stationary and the body bobbles. He feels strongly that such figures should be accurately labeled as “bobble-body” and not “bobble-head”.

Pierre Bernard Conan

Bernard has appeared at other times on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, both as himself and acting as characters. Pierre has portrayed Whoopi Goldberg, the rejected X-Men character Velcroeto, and a character that was supposed to be John Mayer’s only black male fan.

As himself, in one of his first appearances , Piere appeared in a sketch where O Brien took him, another co-worker, and announcer Joel Godard on a spending spree in New York City. This was following the recommendation that shopping was the best thing one could do to help the city recover following September 11.
Bernard appeared in a non-recliner sketch on the June 9, 2006 show. In the segment entitled “Prom Primer”, Pierre gave nonsensical and humorous advice on going to the prom.

He was in a skit where he reenacted some select scenes from the then-recent Academy Awards show on the 2007 February 26. It was explained by O Brien that the sketch was being done due to NBC being unable to show actual clips of the event. In a “Hannigan the Travelling Salesman” sketch which aired on the Thursday, April 12, 2007 episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Bernard had a cameo as a character dressed in a gym vest and short running shorts named “Gay Haitian Lee”, a word-play on PlayStation 3.

In the show’s San Francisco excursion in May 2007, Bernard participated in a sketch where he played a San Francisco enthusiast whose calves had grown to enormous proportions walking up the city’s hilly streets.

He was flown out to Garnett, Kansas, to appear in a local commercial for “The Sherwood Inn,” a local “good ol’ down-home-cookin'” restaurant in September 2007. The entire commercial was aired on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and when Pierre was asked how much he was paid for the ad he said he was paid “in food.” During the bit, he expressed his desire to be in a commercial for the furniture company La-Z-Boy.

On June 3, 2008, Pierre appeared as Senator Barack Obama’s arm on an episode that commemorated Obama’s Democratic Presidential nomination, which was confirmed earlier that day.
