Bringing one of the biggest US TV stars to the UK for a tru-ly magnificent media launch
Last week was something of a starry one, as we spent a happy few days working alongside the iconic ginger-quiffed American talk show host Conan O’Brien.
With his eponymous show launching on truTV, and following countless hours of phone interviews – with the likes of Shortlist, GQ, PA, Metro, The Indi on Sunday, The Daily Star and TV Choice already in the bag – Conan touched down in London as we began a gruelling two day marathon of interviews, taking him to meet the great and good of the UK press.
Kicking things off with a quick jaunt to Global Radio and interviews on The Capital Breakfast Show and LBC with Nick Ferrari – we racked them up and landed face-to-faces with the likes of MSN, Woman, Buzzfeed, The Sunday Mirror, Mirror.co.uk and The Times.
A good night’s sleep and and quick bite to eat with some fellow A-Listers at The Chiltern Firehouse later (which made The Mail Online), we whisked Conan off for a quick chat with the guys at Good Morning Britain, before bagging interviews with Steve Wright on BBC Radio 2, Geoff Lloyd on Absolute and a wonderfully batty stop-off at BBC Entertainment – where he was interviewed (and lost dramatically) over a game of table football.
A couple of hours rest at Shoreditch House, Conan headed to the ‘tru-man Brewery’ and entertained a mix of 500 media and celebs with 10 mins of stand-up – before hitting the red carpet and getting snapped with Dynamo and a host of adoring fans.
All in all an wonderfully eventful, if slightly surreal, couple of days – but with the coverage continuing to roll in, it looks like only a matter of time till Conan makes his way back to Blighty (watch this space!).
