San Diego Comic-Con 2015, with about 130,000 attendees, is now over. For those of us who missed the fantastic, fan-centered fun of the convention, there was plenty of reporting. But some of the best coverage (besides Blastr, of course), came from late-night television host Conan O’Brien.
O’Brien brought Team Coco to report from San Diego Comic-Con. We have some of his funniest clips here, and they speak to a geek-centered audience. Check them out.
Conan goes to Comic-Con
The clip that began his quest to San Diego Comic-Con, Conan and his team dressed up as characters from Mad Max: Fury Road. Conan dialed the action to 11 when he strapped himself to the front of a truck and played a flame-throwing guitar. Mel Gibson is probably gnashing his teeth in jealousy.
As anyone with eyes knows, many female characters in comic-book-dom are drawn with overly large breasts. Team Coco mixes things up “in the interest of comic book gender equality.” Also, in the interest of a big laugh.
Sex and death on Game of Thrones
Conan asked the cast of Game of Thrones, a show known for its vast number of characters and an equally vast number of character deaths, how afraid they are of dying. Carice van Houten starts the ball rolling when she says, “I’m more afraid I’m going to be naked again.”
Elijah Wood and the One Ring
Elijah Wood, who had starred in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, as well as appeared in his Hobbit trilogy, brings out his most precious gift: the One Ring that Peter Jackson gave him after filming the movie. Let’s just say that others still covet the Ring.
Olivia Munn and the serious wardrobe malfunction
Geek favorite Olivia Munn will be co-starring in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse as Psylocke. But Munn’s x-uniform is a little more skin-tight than her co-stars’. In this video, she describes just how much effort it takes to slide her into her costume, as well as her first oh-so-embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
After hearing this, Conan needs a moment.
The Hunger Games cast talks about intense (and disinterested) fan devotion
The stars of The Hunger Games/Mockingjay Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence talk about the intense passion of Italian and Spanish fans—plus the amusement they get from fans who don’t like them.
Chris Hardwick gives Conan a Comic-Con citizenship test
Enjoy the dig at Aquaman. We certainly did.
