James "Bobo" Fay Asked to do Conan O'Brien Show

James Fay is one of the co-host for Finding Bigfoot and is commonly, if not almost exclusively, known to the world as “Bobo.” The origins of that name are shrouded in mystery, as is much of Bobo's life, but it seems to have been born from a variation of the name, “Jimbo,” derived from the nick name “Jim.” Whatever the genesis, Bobo is his functional moniker today.

Bobo was born and raised in Manhattan Beach, CA, and has been interested in the bigfoot mystery for as long as he can remember. As a teen, he became interested in big-wave surfing, and this would take him to the best surf spots up and down the entire West Coast. Soon, he would take surf trips to bigfoot habitat in order to get a chance to maybe see a bigfoot from the beach.

On Bobo's facebook page he announced he was asked to do the Conan O'Brien show.

"just got axed if me and moneymaker want to do conan o'brien show. whats the over/under on how many words i'd be able to get in sittin next to moneymaker for a 6 min interview? i'm going with 18.

Conan is no stranger to Bigfoot. In fact he discussed Bigfoot with Steven Colbert once.



In a transcript of Stephen Colbert, interviewed by Conan O'Brien, on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," Colbert talks about several Bigfoot pieces he did as a correspondent for "Daily Show." The interview was taped June 27, 2003

CO'B: ...Let's talk about "The Daily Show". On "The Daily Show" you are well-known for going out and getting these amazing interviews with strange characters from across America, and you've interviewed people that actually believe Bigfoot exists, are convinced that Bigfoot exists.

SC: Yeah, I've interviewed a lot of, uh, some of the biggest Bigfoot experts in the United States. Um, I've interviewed the people who believe that Bigfoot is endangered. I've interviewed the people who believe that Bigfoot, um, uh, that the Bigfeet, as they call them, are overpopulating and that they're destroying their environment...

CO'B: How does that become a...

SC: There's not a lot of consensus in the Bigfoot expert community.

CO'B: There's a lot of squabbling, yeah. But how could someone think that there's too many Bigfoots running around when noone actually has proof that they exist? How can someone make that argument?

SC: Um, I think a fair amount of Bigoot experts are, um, early-morning drinkers.

CO'B: Okay.

SC: I met somebody in Florida who believed that Bigfoot was in Florida, as opposed to the Pacific Northwest, and that Bigfoot was stealing his pot of lentil soup... that he would make... and this man greeted me at 10:00am stone drunk, shoeless, shirtless, wearing two albino Burmese pythons.

CO'B: And these are the people you're going to for credible scientific information on Bigfoot.

SC: Aaaaah, yeah, those are my experts.

CO'B: Very nice. I like the Stone Phillips way that you said that too. You just, uh, yeah...

SC: [imitating Stone Phillips, once again] They... are my experts.

CO'B: Very nice. You could hurt yourself with that.

SC: I think that's how he got the big neck.

Below is one of the clips from the "Daily Show" with Stephen Colbert talking about Bigfoot Preservation with Ray Crowe.

  3. Bobo is the best thing about that bigfoot show. He should have his own show someday. He is well researched, well spoken, and fun to watch. Moneymaker is just annoying, in my opinion.

  4. I am fairly certain "Bobo" will assist Conan O'Brien by being a straight man for much of their humor. I suspect many of these people in entertainment are envious of anyone with a nickname. I know I am. The nicks I have received in my life are not ones that bear repeating.

    If they did not prostitute themselves at every occasion desperate to get attention with "humor," these comics would be unknowns still at home in their mother's basement, like "Larry the Cable Guy."
