As he has done in the past Conan O’Brien temporarily moved his show Conan down to San Diego for the famed San Diego Comic Con going on right now. Last year, Conan had shows dedicated to many of the superhero films of 2016, including Batman v Superman, X-Men: Apocalypse, and so on.
On Thursday night’s show from SDCC, before bringing his guests out, Conan visited Ironhead Studios, responsible for making the costumes of some of the most famous modern superheroes, including those in Batman v Superman. Conan gets to try on a Hawkman helmet, and fantasize about Wonder Woman Gal Gadot while standing with her headless body replica. He gets creative, placing casts of Ian McKellen and Matt Damon’s heads on the Wonder Woman statue. Conan then volunteers to have his own superhero suit made, meaning the self deprecating comedian had to first pose and be subjected to a full body scan. He then debuts the new Conan supersuit, a buffed out blue bodysuit featuring a C-belt and bright orange hair helmet”¦ it’s fantastic.
Bruce Campbell made an appearance on Conan on Thursday night where he cut the host’s sandwich with a chainsaw Evil Dead-style.

Since moving out to California, Conan O’Brien has used the annual San Diego Comic-Con as an excuse to go buck wild with his late-night talk show Conan on his new cable home on TBS. For Thursday night’s SDCC show while hosting the stars of the CW’s new superhero primetime lineup — Stephen Amell (Arrow), Grant Gustin (Flash) and Melissa Benoist (Supergirl) — O’Brien needed a boost of energy to deal with all the star power there. To get a quick fix, he was delivered a sandwich by the backstage crew, but the sub was too long for normal human consumption.
Fallout 4 was officially released today (read our review right here), making today a holiday for many gamers.
As part of his late night talk show Conan, host Conan O’Brien, who is not a gamer, does a segment called “Clueless Gamer” in which he plays (or attempts to play) various video games with a little help from someone who knows what they’re doing, Aaron Bleyaert. So for the latest session it made all the sense in the world for Conan to take on Fallout 4. They even built an awesome Fallout inspired set and donned some skintight Vault-Tec vault 111 jumpsuits for the segment.

Last night, TBS aired the “Conan In Cuba” special oversized episode of Conan, which documented host Conan O’Brien‘s historic trip to Cuba to become the first late night host in 50 years to film a show in that country.
The network has released a bunch of highlight clips from the episode, which saw O’Brien dancing and interacting with the people of Cuba, as well as visiting a rum museum and making Cuban cigars.
Conan O’Brien became the first late night host in 50 years to film a show in Cuba, when he and his Conan crew visited the city of Havana earlier last month during the long Presidents’ Day weekend. Now, on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, the “Conan In Cuba” special will air on TBS for all to see.
The Conan show has released a 90-second preview of the special, which you can watch here below.
