When any celebrity comes to town, Chicagoans tend to go a little overboard. With Conan O'Brien at the Chicago Theatre, it was a lot overboard.
What's it like to cover a celebrity comedian?
It was hard, at times, to hear what was being said onstage through all the enthusiastic response. This, though, is one of those good problems for a reporter to have, and I look forward to attending the next three shows.
In the meantime, online entertainment editor Matt Wood and I sat down to talk about Conan's appearance, what felt like it worked in person, and felt odd.
