Want more comedy, as well as more Conan O’Brien, during your time in San Diego for Comic-Con? Heavens knows, the man is doing his best to usurp the Main Event by bringing the bright and beautiful people (and Jason Momoa, the damn mirror breaker) to his ConanCon stage at the Spreckles Theatre throughout SDCC week. However, that’s not the only place that you can get your Conan fix.
To stretch the analogy just a little further, Team Coco are providing a methodone fix by providing a pop-up comedy shop, TEAMCOCOHOUSE, to stem the cravings. Running on the same days as the taped shows at the Spreckles, a curated collection of top notch comic talent, podcasts and panels will take place in the afternoons and evenings of ConanCon, giving Conan a safe space to go play instead of hiding in his hotel room in case the nerds see him on the street. A man looking after his own well-being and of the well-being of those around him. Can’t fault the lad.
The pop-up will also be an ideal destination for fans of the wildly popular TBS animation series, FINAL SPACE, with two dedicated session devoted to the show, including a Q&A/podcast jam late into the Thursday with show co-creator Olan Rogers and voice talent Coty Galloway, and also an episode table read with Galloway and other cast members including Tika Sumpter and Tom Kenny on the Friday. Much mayhem and chuckles abound.
All-in-all, this is, if you’ll pardon moi francais, looking like some pretty cool shit. And, even better, it’s looking like all of TEAMCOCOHOUSE is free to attend – yay! – that being said, you do have to RSVP to attend and that you do at http://www.tbs.com/teamcocohouse. Have at it, comedy peeps.
