In the latest episode of the popular talk show “Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend,” Conan does something a little out of the ordinary. On April 18th, which happens to be his birthday, Conan introduces a special segment called “Conan O’Brien Must Go.” In this new format, Conan travels to four different countries – Norway, Argentina, Thailand, and Ireland – to surprise and connect with fans who have been featured on his podcast.

The idea behind “Conan O’Brien Must Go” is to follow up on the lives of these fans and explore the countries they come from. With help from his team, including Mike Sweeny, Jesse Gasal, Matt O’Brien (no relation), and Jason Chilu (also known as Chills), Conan surprises the fans and gets involved in their daily lives. It’s a unique concept that adds a fresh twist to the traditional talk show format.

But how did Conan manage to surprise these fans without giving away his visit? Chills reveals that they invited the fans to participate in a behind-the-scenes shoot for the podcast interview, without mentioning Conan’s presence. Occasionally, news of Conan’s visit leaked on social media, but the team had clever ways of throwing the fans off the trail.

Each country visit brought its own set of comedic moments and challenges. In Norway, Conan encountered random people on the street who turned out to be perfect comedy foils. In Thailand, he found himself holding an obscene item as an American family passed by on a boat, creating an unexpectedly hilarious scene. Losing his luggage in one of the countries led Conan to a shop specializing in traditional Norwegian costumes, where he received an honest, albeit funny, evaluation from a local.

The fans themselves also contributed to the humor, with their quick-witted and genuine interactions. Conan appreciates the opportunity to meet these fans in their own environment, where they feel comfortable enough to be themselves. There’s no pretense or celebrity awe, just fans hanging out with their favorite talk show host.

Aside from the comedic moments, the show also focuses on the visually stunning aspects of each country. Conan wanted the travel show to look gorgeous, and with the help of the talented crew, including director of photography Emily Toer and sound engineer Emily Strong, they were able to achieve a cinematic quality. The use of drones added an extra level of visual appeal, capturing breathtaking aerial shots of the countries.

Despite the challenges and long hours of shooting, Conan is proud of the team’s hard work and the opportunity to blend his podcast with travel shows. He loves the unpredictability and the chance to create cinematic moments. The result is a show that not only entertains but also provides a glimpse into different cultures while maintaining Conan’s signature humor.

Conan O’Brien Must Go” is a refreshing departure from the traditional talk show format. With its unique blend of surprise visits and comedic interactions, Conan continues to push boundaries and keep fans entertained. And with the incredible production team and beautiful cinematography, each episode is a visual treat. So, sit back, relax, and get ready to embark on a hilarious and visually stunning journey with Conan O’Brien and his friends.
