Conan O'Brien's Celebrity Guest Lineup for Comic-Con Shows Revealed

The late-night TV personality will host his TBS talk show from the Spreckels Theater in downtown San Diego during 2016 San Diego Comic-Con International July 20-23

Late-night TV personality Conan O’Brien will usher in a star-studded lineup of celebrity guests when he hosts his TBS talk show from San Diego this month during Comic-Con.

Just like last year, O’Brien will broadcast his show from the Spreckels Theater on Broadway in downtown San Diego, with tapings set for July 20 through July 23.

His guest list for those tapings is a who’s who of Hollywood talent.

On July 20, the stars of “Silicon Valley” will join O’Brien, including Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods and Martin Starr. On July 21, Coco will be joined by “Weird Al” Yankovic, the San Diego Comic-Con blog confirms.

For the July 22 taping – which will air on July 24 – the cast of “Game of Thrones” will hit Conan’s couch, including John Bradley, Liam Cunningham, Nathalie Emmanuel, Conleth Hill, Faye Marsay, Kristian Nairn, Iwan Rheon and Isaac Hempstead Wright, along with executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. The “Game of Thrones” cast appeared on Conan’s show from Comic-Con last summer, too.

Finally, the July 23 taping of O’Brien’s talk show from downtown San Diego will feature the high-profile stars of “Suicide Squad.” This includes Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez and Adam Beach.

More guests may be announced as Comic-Con and the tapings draw closer.

As of Friday morning, tickets to each of O’Brien’s San Diego tapings were sold out. However, fans pining for tickets can still try to snag standby passes. A limited number of those will be made available just before show time each day, if there are any empty seats to fill in the theater. Most of these seats will be single seats throughout the venue.

For those standby passes, fans can go to the Team Coco Ticket Space at 969 1st Avenue at 8 a.m. on the morning of the taping they’d like to attend. There, wristbands will be distributed and hopefuls will be given details on a location and time to return to see if they will be getting into the taping.

San Diego Comic-Con International 2016 runs July 20 (preview night) through July 24 at the San Diego Convention Center.
