Tickets are distributed by a lottery system, so even if you have requested tickets on a specific date, that doesn't mean you are guaranteed tickets. If you are lucky enough to get tickets to Conan, you will receive an email from the show and a follow up phone call to confirm you will be attending that specific taping. They don't want anyone to flake.
Conan tapes at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California. If you are in L.A. and weren't able to get tickets in advance through the lottery system, you can try your luck at a limited number of standby tickets that are made available each day Conan is taping. Again, there is no guarantee you will get tickets, but it is worth a shot. For standby tickets, arrive at the Audience Queue Area at Warner Brothers, 6564 Forest Lawn Dr., Los Angeles, by 10 am on the morning of the taping. Tickets will be distributed and you will be given a time to return to see if you've scored a seat in the audience.
