We arrived in San Diego on Wednesday, July, 20th just in time for preview night. The San Diego Airport was again decked out in Conan, in anticipation for the week's most in-demand shows!

As you may have heard on Episode 72, our matter of SDCC business was talking with writer/director Teddy Cecil. Following our interview with Teddy, we hit the convention floor!

We can't thank San Diego Comic-Con enough for allowing us to come and do a live show and be able to have these incredible experiences in San Diego. Everybody at SDCC treats us incredibly well and really makes us feel like family.
