But NBC has announced guests for some of the four “Late Night” shows to be taped at the Chicago Theatre May 9-12.

On Monday, May 9, Sean Hayes, Glen Ellyn native and Illinois State University alum, will be a guest. “Will and Grace” will air its series finale the next week.

While you're there, cast your vote to name Turk and Carla's baby. You love "Scrubs" as much as we do, right? We think Chicagoist Turk-Espinosa has a nice ring to it. No? Chicagoista?

Anyway, Conan tickets are expected to be emailed out soon.

Conan was in town last Wednesday to stop by the Chicago Theatre and hang out with the staff at Second City.
