Act Fast for Conan Tickets

conan.jpgWant to score a pair of tickets to see Conan when he comes to Chicago May 9-12? Better act fast. To request tickets (2 per person allowed), send an email to with your name, address, phone number and email address.

If your email is chosen, you’ll have two tickets “reserved” for you. You’ll receive an email confirming that your request has been received and a second email if you’ve been selected. But this does not guarantee you a seat. More tickets will be “reserved” than can be admitted. You’ll have to line up no later at 3:15 p.m. at the Chicago Theatre on the day of your assigned show and hope for a spot. (Hint: you’ll probably want to get there before 3:15.)

Single stand by tickets will be available at noon on the day of each show, but again, those tickets don’t guarantee admission. Click here for full details.

No guest list yet, but your guesses include John Cusack and Andy Richter and other hometown names like Mike Ditka, Paul Konerko, Bernie Mac, Bill Murray, Billy Corgan, Kanye West and Fall Out Boy. What, no women?
