Late-Night Visitor

New York and Los Angeles are homes to the some of the biggest and most famous late-night TV franchises in the world. They take them for granted and, to be fair, you would too if you lived next door to the Ed Sullivan Theater. You might even find yourself complaining to the super about all the noise that U2 were making next door while you’re trying to sleep. But talk show hosts are people too, and they want to feel appreciated once in a while, so they take their shows on the road. Starting March 31, TBS’ Conan O’Brien will tape a week’s worth of episodes of his late-night show Conan at The Majestic Theater along with his trusted sidekick Andy Richter, Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band, celebrity guests such as Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen and (if he’s reading this, please!) Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. The Majestic Theater is located at 1925 Elm St. in Dallas. Tickets are only available by request at
Mon., March 31, 10 p.m.; Tue., April 1, 10 p.m.; Wed., April 2, 10 p.m.; Thu., April 3, 10 p.m., 2014
