For the first time in almost a year and a half, Conan O’Brien did his TBS show with an actual audience in the seats last night. He’s said many times on his podcast during the pandemic that he misses performing in front of people dearly, so having an audience in front of him must have been beyond satisfying.
The timing of the return of audiences for Conan is fortuitous as he only has a handful of shows left before his TBS show ends its run. He’ll be going to HBO Max for a new show. There was originally some fear that he’d have to end his current show without any audience members in the theatre with him but thankfully that will not be the case. The show deserves a proper send off, with his fans in attendance.
