Coco Rising

We’re going to get a little treat prior to Conan O’Brien’s new show launching this Fall on TBS: A one-hour special, scheduled to air June 27. This means we’ll get to see Andy Richter in action.

The special will supposedly give fans a sneak peek at what to expect from the show: new skits, characters, and the like. Fandom for O’Brien is feverish, so any disappointments will be voiced loudly across the Internet, though it’s probably safe to expect a slew of YouTube clips popping up in real time instead.

TBS presents an annual special called the “Very Funny Festival: Just for Laughs.” At this years’s festival, O’Brien will film a rehash of “Team Coco Presents Conan’s Writers Live,” which was first performed in L.A., for the June 27th special. Also appearing at the festival is Cedric the Entertainer, who is very funny, and Ellen DeGeneres, who is a lesbian.
