Troops at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar are getting an unusual guest this week: Talk show host and comedian Conan O’Brien.
Conan landed at Al Udeid today with First Lady Michelle Obama. During his visit, O’Brien will be putting on a show for some of the roughly 11,000 service members stationed there. Portions of Conan’s trip to Doha will be shown on his late-night TBS show later this year, according to Entertainment Weekly.
But in the meantime, he’s taken the reins of the First Lady’s Instagram account and is promising to post more photos showing his trip. Said O’Brien:
Hi everyone! It’s Conan O’Brien and @TeamCoco coming to you live from the American Al Udeid Air Base here in Qatar. Follow along as I take over the First Lady’s Instagram today and tomorrow to introduce you to our troops, and hopefully make them laugh along the way. -Conan
