Mission Conan Marks Another Great Trip Special for Conan

At this point, It should not really come as a surprise that Conan O’Brien going overseas to remote places makes for really great television. Cuba, Armenia, and Mission Conan to the Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar for the troops have all really showcased O’Brien and his show’s versatility in the still early, formative stages of this new era of late night. 

Whether it be working with military dogs

…or just doing hosting a live show

…or ribbing the troops just right

…or giving EOD a try

…or having Conan writers Brian Kiley and Laurie Kilmartin do stand-up

as well as John Mulaney and Grace Potter perform all the way over in Qatar

…Conan makes a great case for way more of this to be ordered by TBS.

Even when, he couldn’t get a camera in the plane with First Lady Michelle Obama, the show cooked up something pretty great.
