Conan O’Brien made history last night when he aired an episode of his late night talk show that was filmed entirely in Cuba, making him the first American late-night talk show host to broadcast from the country since Jack Paar interviewed Fidel Castro for The Tonight Show in 1959.
O'Brien, along with a small crew, spent four days in Havana, Cuba over Presidents' Day weekend with no real plan, other than trying to meet the people of Cuba and "make friends."

Here's a video clip of Seth Rogen talking about hangover flying on Conan O'Brien from earlier this month. Given the staggering number of ways that this is directly in our wheelhousecelebrity travel, booze travel, a full post we once did about hangover clauses in airline tickets, etcit's almost embaressing that we missed it when it went up.

Conan O'Brien is taking his show on the road, again.
This week the talk show host announced he is bringing Conan to Atlanta for a week leading up to the Final Four. Conan will tape four episodes of his show at Atlanta's Tabernacle Concert Hall on April 1-4, 2013.
Conan O'Brien is doing good this season by donating his time, and 4 tickets to his show, to a charity auction. The top bidder will receive four VIP tickets to a see a live taping of Conan at Warner Bros. Studios, and a meet and greet with Conan after the show.
But, before you starting bidding, keep in mind the tickets must be redeemed within one year, can not be transferred, and do not include transportation to Los Angeles, where Conan is taped.
We're night people here at Jaunted. We like them red-eye flights. We're also definitely Conan-over-Leno people, and luckily last night we were tuned in when Conan O'Brien showed a bit on "new video games." After "Super Diabetic Mario Bros" and "Grand Theft Auto: Texting While Driving," Conan hits the spot with a play on SkyMall, fusing it with the popular fantasy world "SkyRim" video game.
Not going to spoil it all for you, but the Touchless Sensor Toilet Seat does make a cameo.
Watch it from 2:10 - 2:50 in the video below:
Last week, while taping his nightly talk show at the Chicago Theatre, Conan O'Brien promised to leave the city of Chicago a "gift"a giant bobblehead in his likenessat a local landmark of their choosing.
During a skit on Thursday's show it seemed like Conan was going to keep his promise as the 30-foot bobblehead was carefully installed outside the Art Institute of Chicago. There was just one problem, no one told the museum's staff and the giant Conan head was quickly booted.
Conan O'Brien has taken over the Chicago Theatre this week where he is taping four episodes of Conan to coincide with the TBS Just For Laughs Festival.
On Monday, Conan unveiled a 17-foot bobblehead of himself which he plans to donate to Chicago. "As a thank you, I had a sculpture created that reflects Chicago's size, power, and beauty," Conan explained as he revealed the massive monument.
Conan is asking Chicago residents to chose where they want the giant bobblehead to stand by tweeting suggestions to @teamcoco with the hashtag #COCOBOBBLE or posting them at teamcoco.com/cocobobble.
Conan O'Brien is taking his show on the road again! This time he'll be taping four episodes during the TBS Just For Laughs Comedy Festival at The Chicago Theatre in Chicago, IL.
Free tickets to Conan in Chicago, which will be taped between June 11th and 14th, will be issued via an online lottery.
To enter, all you have to do is visit teamcoco.com/tickets/chicago and choose the date you would like to attend (you can only choose one date, so choose wisely) and fill out the ticket request form.
While we don't get all of our news from watching Conan O'Brien late at nightokay just most of it. kidding. maybe.he did make a sharp joke in last night's monologue. Noting that the TSA will unwrap all wrapped holiday gifts at airport security points this seasonthe first time they've been this thorough with itConan joked that they're doing this because they "need a break from looking at your junk all day."
Oh yes, and don't forget that they'll confiscate your snow globes like usual.
Some clarification from the TSA's "Blogger Bob" on the issue:

Our dearly beloved Conan O'Brien will be taping his show at The Beacon Theatre in NYC from 10/31-11/3 and he's looking for a studio audience (along with a ride from the airport).
Since Conan, which is usually filmed in Los Angeles, will only be in New York for a few days the demand for tickets is high, but it's not hopeless. Tickets are being issued through an online lottery.

This weekend Conan O'Brien Can't Stop, the documentary about last summer's "Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour", hits theaters and it'll probably have some people wishing they could catch Conan live, without having to trek all the way to his L.A. studio.
Well, luckily for those folks, Conan is giving them what they want. He recently announced that he'll be taking his new show, Conan, on the road!

The comedy is in reference to this story, which you've probably already heard about, where TSA agents at MCI pulled aside a baby after its stroller triggered an explosives alarm. A pastor named Jacob Jester snapped a photo of the subsequent patdown and uploaded it to yfrog/Twitterbecause that's where all news startsand from there it went viral. Then last Wednesday Conan did a bit on it, and now we're posting the Conan clip, and that children, is the Internet circle of life.
Regarding the actual substance of the story...yeah, listen. This is going to be one of those rare times when we come down on TSA's side. Airports are on heightened alert in the aftermath of the Bin Laden killing. Terrorists have tried to smuggle bombs into planes before by planting them even on pregnant women. The baby's stroller tested positive for traces of explosives. What did you expect the TSA agents to do? Not give the kid a once-over?
