Andy Richter, Conan O'Brien's longtime sidekick, could help you come out to your family for just $99.95 this holiday season. If you've got a little more cash, he'll throw in everyone's favorite"Star Trek" crew member and gay icon, George Takei.
“Coming out to your family during the holidays is never easy," Ritcher says in the packaged bit. "It can be a delicate process, and sometimes you need a helpful nudge. That’s where I come in.”
Richter and comedian Deon Cole will bring along a band to help set the mood. But surely no family could resist Takei popping out from behind a curtain to announce, "Welcome to the wonderful world of gay!"
