Biography: Joel Godard (born March 31, 1938 in Milledgeville, Georgia) is the announcer on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He is often featured in skits, playing himself on the show, although his appearances have been somewhat limited recently.
Godard's character is blatantly homosexual, and has an affinity for young Asian men (preferably wearing Speedos). His character will often pine for "the sweet release of death" and detail how his life is miserable (i.e., "My life is a septic tank filled to overflowing."), but he will say all these things in his cheery announcer voice.
Godard attended Emory University, graduating in 1960 with a Chemistry degree. Godard was admitted to Emory's school of medicine, but instead chose show business. Before taking the job on Late Night, Godard was an announcer on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. He is happily married, with two children.
