Conan O'Brien recently surprised Chelsea Handler in the shower ... in a naughty "nude" sketch on her E! talk show "Chelsea Lately."

Last year, "Chelsea Lately" was moved to the home of "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien," which lasted seven months during an NBC shakeup that saw host Jay Leno leaving in 2009 and then returning following lackluster ratings.
