Anyone who has felt Conan O’Brien’s absence since he defected for the West Coast and basic cable will soon breathe a sigh of relief.
O’Brien is going to make the most of his time in New York while he prepares for his upcoming live shows.
As he returns to the Big Apple this month, he will ring in his arrival with a museum dedicated to himself. The COCO MoCA will be housed on the 2nd floor of the Time Warner Center from October 24 through November 3. The space will feature 50 pieces created by artists, each an homage to the carrot-topped comedian.
Visitors will be treated to also get an audio tour voiced by Conan and Andy Richter, and be able to experience the Conan Loveseat, an “interactive robotic couch sculpture that talks to fans, hugs them and takes a picture for them.”
Conan will be airing his show live from the Beacon Theatre from October 31st through November 3rd.
An incarnation of the COCA MoCA was seen this summer at San Diego’s Comic Con. The pop-up exhibit featured displays of fan art created for the late night talk show host.
