Conan O'Brien returning to Chicago for another round of show tapings...

Written by

CONAN O'BRIEN digs Chicago, and from the response he's received in past visits, it's obvious that Chicago residents dig O'Brien. The host of CONAN will return to Chicago this June to set up shop once again at the Chicago Theatre for a new batch of show tapings. His June 11-14th stay in the Windy City coincides with the TBS Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, which will be in town from June 12-17, 2012.  

Tickets for the show are FREE, and will be dished out via online lottery at http://teamcoco.com/chicago (you must be 16+).

 

Just throwing this out there, but you know who would be a great guest for CONAN?

Me.

I haven't been on any TV shows since starting The Rock Father™, and this looks like a great place to start. It's local... a favorite... and we have baby #2 due on June 18th. Perfect timing.

As for the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, the multi-venue event will feature VINCE VAUGHN, STEPHEN MERCHANT, PATTON OSWALT, KEVIN SMITH, AZIZ ANSARI, JEFF ROSS, THE DAN BAND, and much more. Get times and tix at http://www.justforlaughschicago.com
