TBS has just announced that Andy Richter (left), Reggie Watts, and several of Conan O’Brien’s writers will be heading up a one-hour comedy special with the working title of Team Coco Presents Conan’s Writers Live. Part of TBS’s second annual Just for Laughs festival, the special will tape on June 17 in Chicago and air on TBS on June 27th at 10 p.m. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 28. The show has already been playing to sold-out crowds in Los Angeles.
With all the hubbub surrounding dear Coco these days, it’s pretty cool to see his writers — and especially faithful sidekick Richter — get some love. (Watts, in case you didn’t know, has been opening for O’Brien on his Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour.)
Sounds good to me. Who’s gonna check this out?
