[UPDATED] Conan Becomes First Late Night Talk Show Host To Cuba Since 1959

February 16, 2015


Himself no stranger to harsh embargoes, Conan O'Brien has become the first late night talk show host since Jack Paar to take his show to Cuba. With the country's relations with the US recently normalized, Conan reportedly took a small crew to Havana on Thursday for a weekend shooting of one of O'Brien's classic remote bits--this one giving a rare glimpse as to what Cuba's been up to for the last five decades. The piece is scheduled to air March 4, and will definitely include a part about how much sunscreen Conan needs.
