Conan O'Brien Films in Cuba, Marking Late-Night First
Conan O'Brien is off to Cuba.
The talk-show host spent the weekend in Havana to film an upcoming segment for his TBS series. He was there for several days, taking in the sights and experiencing daily life.
This marks the first time that a late-night host has filmed on mainland Cuba since the 1962 embargo. It follows President Obama's Dec. 17 call to begin restoring diplomatic ties with the nation.
The episode is set to air Wednesday, March 4, on TBS.
