Conan O’Brien has no need to further establish his geek cred. Even if his nightly TBS talk show CONAN never set foot at Comic-Con, we’d accept that he is a big-time geek. But on top of his already fully established membership in geekdom, he is taking CONAN to Comic-Con.
O’Brien will host the show from Speckles Theater for episodes airing Wednesday, July 8th to Saturday (yes, Saturday), July 11th. This will be the first time a late night talk show has ever broadcast from San Diego during Comic-Con. For More, Follow the jump.
