Conan O’Brien’s new late-night show on TBS isn’t scheduled to air for a few months. To prep the new shot, the channel has picked up a one hour special that will feature Conan’s writers, sidekick Andy Richter and tour opener Reggie Watts.
The program is tentatively titled Team Coco presents Conan’s Writers Live and will be based heavily on the sold-out road show, The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour which Conan’s spent the last few weeks crossing the country with.
The showcase will be taped on June 17th at the Bank of America Theater in Chicago as part of TBS’ Just For Laughs festival. The special will then air live on TBS on June 27th.
