This was announced last year but no one really paid much attention to it: Conan O’Brien is once again producing his chat show from the San Diego Comic-Con this year. The carrot-top broadcast four live shows from SDCC for the first time last year, after flirting with attending via a art gallery the year before. The show scooped up tons of top notch guests, fresh off the Hall H boat, so although the production was logistically complex, but it must have paid off. He’s definitely doing it again for 2016, and we’re guessing it could become an annual thing. SDCC Blog has more:
Although we’ve been telling folks this all year, as Conan O’Brien himself announced he’d be returning to San Diego Comic-Con last year during the final taping of his show — it’s now official that your favorite red-headed giant host of Conan is coming back to rock the socks off the con.
The San Diego Comic-Con dates quietly went up on 1iota (though don’t panic — you haven’t missed anything yet, and they’re not available yet). Just like last year, Conan will be performing live shows in San Diego on Wednesday, July 20 – Saturday, July 23, with a time listed of 3:30PM for each date.
I think some of the Elite Beat Operatives attending taping last year and had a good time, so keep your eyes open for when actual tickets go on sale.
