“The very first transgender talk show host,” Laverne Cox, who plays transgender inmate Sophia on “Orange Is the New Black,” told Conan during a skit. “I’m not transgender,” O’Brien responded. “But your voice is higher than mine…you’re telling me your not transitioning?”

“No, this is my real voice, O’Brien said angrily. “I’m a man.” The skit preceded O’Brien interviewing several of the show’s main characters.
