Conan O'Brien to Broadcast His TBS Talk Show Live from Comic-Con

This will mark the first time a talk show has broadcast live from Comic-Con.

Conan O’Brien has picked the days he will be broadcasting from Comic-Con. 

The actor will bring his TBS talk show to Comic Con in San Diego from Wednesday, July 8 to Saturday, July 11, which is normally taped farther north at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank.

“Conan” usually airs from Monday to Thursday; however, the actor announced on his show Monday evening that he would be changing the schedule to better coincide with the convention and its events. 

Each comic-themed episode will be broadcast from the Spreckels Theater in downtown San Diego. The actor previously announced his plans in April 2014. 

“Anyway, we really are very excited to be broadcasting from Comic-Con this summer,” O’Brien said on his show Monday night. “We’re predicting a pretty amazing response from Comic-Con regulars.”

This will be the first time a late-night program will broadcast live from the pop culture convention, which draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. There is no word yet on tickets for the shows. 

While this may be a milestone for his show, Conan himself is no stranger to Comic-Con.

Three years ago, the host debuted a trailer for his “upcoming” -- though underfunded -- “Flaming C” animated movie (See video below).
