You may or may not know that you can see almost any television talk show for free. There are worse ways to spend an afternoon, if you’re curious to check one out. Just a warning, if you do, be prepared to endure long lines, sitting in waiting areas and a pretty fast taping, once you finally do get to the stage. The shows need to provide a lot of daily content, so it’s all done very efficiently and like clockwork. Just remind yourself it’s free.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area, you can check out Conan. The late night show tapes at the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, CA. One upside with Conan is he’s very interactive with the audience and feeds off every reaction they give him. While photography and video are not permitted during the taping of the show, you can see a shot at the stage from when the show was not taping.
LOCATION: 4000 Warner Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505
Upon arrival, you’ll wait with the event staff, where you can take pics with a couple Conan statues. There’s also a Conan merchandise stand.
Just outside of the show’s stage, you’ll find these life size Conan creations.
You’ll also get a glimpse of the Warner Bros. studio as you make your way to and from the stage, but it will be quite limited what you see. To check out the wide array of sets and props the lot has to offer, we’d recommend purchasing a studio tour pass.
