We highly recommend you arrive at the venue 60 minutes early, so you can pass through security and be in your seats once the event begins.
The Madison Square Garden Company places the safety and security of our guests above all else. For that reason, we continuously assess and upgrade security measures across all our venues, including the recent introduction of more rigorous bag screenings.
To help ensure that everybody attending our events can enjoy unforgettable and safe experiences, we strongly discourage guests from bringing unnecessary bags, particularly backpacks. As always, all bags will be subject to rigorous screening which can delay entry into all our venues.
Your safety and security are of great importance to us and we look forward to seeing you.
No outside food or beverage is permitted in the venue.
Conan O’Brien will hit the road for the first time since 2010 when he launches his Conan & Friends: An Evening of Stand-Up and Investment Tips tour this November, which includes a performance at The Chicago Theatre on November 28, 2018.
O’Brien will be joined by different groups of handpicked comics each night of the tour, bringing his unique comic sensibilities and the voices of some of his favorite performers to venues all over the United States. From former and current CONAN writers, to comedians who host monthly comedy shows in Los Angeles with Team Coco, to CONAN: Without Borders travel partners, the tour gives a glimpse into the growing comedy ecosystem Team Coco continues to create across all mediums including their growing digital studio, merchandise lines, and many other new lines of business. The Chicago Theatre show will feature O’Brien along with performances from Ron Funches (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Black-ish), Taylor Tomlinson (Netflix’s The Comedy Lineup), James Veitch (Conan) and Flula Borg (Pitch Perfect 2, Curb Your Enthusiasm).
O’Brien added, “There are a lot of exciting changes coming up for me in 2019 and I wanted to kick it off this fall with an 18-city live tour. The idea that I hit the road for 7 weeks was pitched by my wife, with the full backing of my children.”
Building on the promise of a recently announced joint venture with Turner, Conan & Friends: An Evening of Stand-Up and Investment Tips, will advance Team Coco’s philosophy of bringing comedy everywhere. The multi-city tour will allow O’Brien to intimately reconnect and interact with his passionate fan base as he gears up for a leaner more agile 30 minute show on TBS premiering January 2019. The tour, like the new format gives O’Brien the flexibility to experiment and have fun with his audience in new ways.
