The award-winning comedian, talk show host, podcast producer, world traveller, guitar aficionado and lover of burritos is no stranger to packing a suitcase, and is headed back our way (after visiting in 2000 for the Sydney Olympics) to perform one show only!
Frontier Comedy are thrilled to announce Conan O’Brien – the USA’s longest tenured late night television host – will return to Australian shores to make his live stand-up debut next month, with an exclusive show at the State Theatre.
With millions of TV viewers globally, Conan O’Brien’s online audience is just as impressive: 28 million+ Twitter, five million Facebook, over two billion on YouTube. There’s his hilarious travel series, currently showing on Netflix: CONAN: Without Borders. January sees the anticipated return of his hit late night TV show “CONAN” – back four days a week with a new 30 min format, watch the hilarious teaser clip here. “My three-month absence can only mean one thing – radical cosmetic surgery,” O’Brien says of show’s revamp. “Tune in for a true freak show!” Read all about Conan’s big TV changes in a recent New York Times interview here.
At the end of 2018, there were other new developments: O’Brien toured USA/Canada on an 18 date live tour – his first stand-up in over eight years. He also launched the excellent new podcast ‘Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend’, which sees some of the biggest names in entertainment, music, comedy, literature sit down each week. Guests so far have included Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Kristen Bell, Marc Maron, Nick Offerman & Megan Mullaly. Then there’s the small matter of a massive online archive, due to launch later this month, which will see clips of ALL Conan’s TV work housed in one big website – head to teamcoco.com for info.
