Conan O’Brien is going where no man has gone before — at least any man with an American late-night show on television.
The host of TBS’ “Conan” has departed for Armenia and celebrated that fact with a funny tweet that features his assistant who is along for the ride.
The trip will undoubtedly be an invigorating one. However, we have bad news for Sona, because it looks like she isn’t getting a raise anytime soon.
The good news is that she will have an unforgettable trip through a magical land.
Here is a tweet from O’Brien, announcing an upcoming episode centered on the destination:
As the tweet states, the future episode will air on November 10. It also offered a quick glimpse with an image of O’Brien next to a smiling Sona.
This is particularly noteworthy from a historic standpoint. TBS states that O’Brien is working hard as he, “prepares to become the first American late-night host ever to do a show from Armenia. Joining Conan will be his longtime assistant Sona Movsesian, who is of Armenian descent.”
O’Brien would make for one prolific travel personality if he weren’t so amazing as a late-night show host.
We previously reported on the 52-year-old comedian making history in the form of becoming the first host of a late-night program to film from Cuba since 1959.
And we know how wildly entertaining that adventure was:
From Cuba to annual trips to Comic-Con to Armenia, O’Brien is stretching his comedy to places many audience members aren’t familiar with, using entertainment to spread a little knowledge and culture.
We are just glad we get to tag along and see this hilarity unfold.
