Conan O’Brien is going to become the first late-night host to broadcast his show from San Diego’s Comic-Con International.
Conan will be in San Diego in 2015, doing the TBS show from the Spreckels Theatre from July 8 to 12.
With Comic-Con such a major destination for Hollywood talent these days, the guest lineup for O’Brien’s shows that week should be impressive.
