The historic Los Angeles comedy and music venue, Largo at the Coronet, will become the new broadcasting location of CONAN, starting Monday July 6th.

“I got started doing improv at the Coronet in 1986 and I’m glad we’ve figured out a way to safely keep that theater going during this lockdown” said O’Brien.

Mark Flanagan, owner of the Largo at the Coronet said in a statement, “We are thrilled that Conan and his great team reached out and offered to help us through these awful times. We have a long history together and look forward to many more great years to come.”
