CONAN in Qatar with First Lady Michelle Obama
to Air Monday, Jan. 25
Special Remote Episode Features Appearances by John Mulaney and Grace Potter
CONAN also Set to Return to Comic-Con International in San Diego in July 2016
TBS has set Monday, Jan. 25, for the premiere of CONAN in Qatar, featuring Conan O'Brien and First Lady Michelle Obama on their recent trip to visit U.S. troops stationed at the Al Udeid Air Base in Doha, Qatar. This latest in a string of global excursions for Conan will mark his second trip abroad to perform for the men and women of the United States military. In May 2003, he visited Kuwait and Bahrain on a USO tour.
In addition to the trip to Qatar, CONAN is set for a return engagement in San Diego this July during Comic-Con® International. The show generated a lot of buzz and strong audience numbers during last summer's Comic-Con, when CONAN delivered late-night television's first-ever week of shows from the event.
CONAN in Qatar marks Conan O'Brien's fourth adventure in the past 12 months. Last spring, he made headlines as the first American late-night host to shoot in Cuba in more than 50 years. And in November, he became the first American late-night host ever to do a show from Armenia. He has also done shows from New York, Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta.
CONAN airs Monday-Thursday at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. The show is produced by Conaco LLC, with Jeff Ross serving as executive producer.
