Conan O'Brien is Headed to Comic Con: Here's 6 Things He Should Expect
For the first time ever, late night television is heading to Comic Con. Conan O'Brien will be taking his show Conan to the San Diego Comic Con in 2015 to report on all the hard hitting comic news, and possibly to change the name of the event to "Conan Con" or "Comic Conan" (lame joke). For the entire weeklong event Conan will be covering the fandom-filled land that is this annual convention. Of course Comic Con 2015 is still over a year away, but O'Brien and his camp need at least that long to prepare themselves for entering this arena. And since this is unchartered water for late night television, in case he wants to know what he's in for ahead of time here are 6 things he can expect.
1. IF TOM HIDDLESTON SHOWS UP, HE'LL LOSE HIS HEARING
Last year Hiddles made a surprise appearance dressed as Loki and everyone went wild. So Conan better pack some earplugs in case our favorite Shakespearian actor strikes again.
2. YOU NEED TO BRING YOUR OWN FOOD
Comic Con is basically one long line. Lines for the signings, lines for the panels, and lines for food. So we advise the Conan crew to bring a catering staff (and possibly a portable bathroom).
3. THE COSTUMES ARE INTENSE
There are the costumes that you expect: Star Wars, Spider-Man, etc.
And then there are the wacky outfits that Conan will certainly not be able to decipher.
4. WALKING IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE
Want to do some man-on-the-street interviews? Too bad! There are a million people and everyone's costumes have props, so there's no space to walk unless you get herded like cattle.
5. ACTORS IN DISGUISE
Andrew Garfield surprised everyone by being behind a Spider-Man mask, and Bryan Cranston showed up wearing a Walter White mask. This means you have to be nice to everyone with their face covered because they might be a celeb.
6. DON'T INTERVIEW JAKE LLYOD
From time-to-time Lloyd, best known for playing young Anakin Skywalker, will show up at a convention because he's just as much of a comic fanboy as anyone. But don't interview him. He doesn't like the limelight and he will not humor your Star Wars jokes.
