In this post, we will go through all of these things and clear them one by one.
Who is Jordan Schlansky, Is He a Real Person or Just a Work of Fiction?
He was born on April 13, 1973, in Los Angeles, California. Schlansky is definitely a real person and in real life, his role is somehow similar as he appears on the show as the show’s associate producer. He has been working on Conan’s shows since 1996. It’s the year he started working with Conan as a studio coordinator.
At that time Conan was running Late Night with Conan O’Brien that use to air on NBC. He handles various duties that are forwarded to him from the show’s producers. For example, booking guests, ensuring that graphics and skits go well on the screen along with other dedicated work.
Many people wondered about the authenticity of his character on screen and off screen, there have been many comparisons and questions about it. The speculations about the guy started after his very first appearance on Conan’s show. On his show, he was introduced as a character named Jordan Schlansky (his real name).

Same goes for Jordan Schlansky, as everyone knows on the show, he shows sophisticated and detailed knowledge for food and always expresses it in a funny manner. Now, in real life, he may know that much about food because its a part of his professional character.
But he might not express it in a way as Jordan Schlansky does on the show. That’s just not possible because in real life it would sound weird as on show everyone follows a concept.
Many people wonder another thing about him. His ability to do comedy. Does he have the comedy skills like Conan O’Brien? How well he can perform without Conan.
Well, we don’t know about this exactly. But as the show is run by Conan and almost all of the skits are written by Conan himself, we can say Jordan is a nice actor rather than being a comedian.
