Conan O'Brien Breaks Mold on Hot Ones, Promotes New Travel Show

Conan O'Brien recently made a memorable appearance on the popular YouTube series Hot Ones, where he showcased his signature wit and humor while promoting his new travel show, Conan O'Brien Must Go. The four-episode series, which premiered on April 18 and is available to stream on Max, follows O'Brien as he visits fans and locals in Norway, Thailand, Argentina, and Ireland.

During his Hot Ones episode, O'Brien broke the show's traditional mold with his unique blend of comedy and engaging storytelling. He also returned to NBC's Tonight Show as a guest of current host Jimmy Fallon. The Hollywood Reporter's chief TV critic Daniel Fienberg praised Conan O'Brien Must Go, describing it as "a smartly dumb show — or a stupidly smart show — focused (loosely) on what is essential about travel."

O'Brien, known for his 28-year run in late-night television hosting shows like Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Conan, brings his comedic chops to the travel genre. "I like going places where my status is low, people are free to make fun of me. I can feel silly... I like to go to other countries and be a little bit aware, a little bit uncomfortable with my surroundings," O'Brien said about his approach to comedy and travel.

The new series was inspired by O'Brien's podcast, Conan O'Brien Needs a Fan, where he interviews fans from around the world. "My fans around the globe never asked me to visit them, so I did," O'Brien quipped when announcing the show last spring. The series is produced by Conaco, with O'Brien and Jeff Ross serving as executive producers.

Conan O'Brien Must Go marks a departure from the comedian's traditional late-night format, allowing him to explore new comedic territory and connect with people from different cultures. The show's premiere on Max, with a subscription starting at $9.99 per month for the ad-supported plan, gives viewers a chance to see O'Brien in a fresh and exciting context.

With his appearance on Hot Ones and the launch of Conan O'Brien Must Go, the beloved comedian continues to showcase his versatility and ability to entertain audiences across various platforms. As O'Brien embraces the world of travel and cultural exploration, fans can look forward to more of his signature humor and insightful observations.
