SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON | Conan Con

I don't have a long dramatic flight story for this year's Comic-Con (at least on the way to San Diego). After roaming around Wednesday we spent Thursday looking to get our Conan on! We went 2 years ago. It was Conan's first time bringing his show to San Diego and it was a slept on / unknown event. We went to two showings and like previously mentioned each audience goes home with a limited edition Funko Pop. We took home the Flash! I wanted to trade our extra one but had no takers. 

The guests for our show was the cast of Ninjago the new logo movie. The trailer looked really funny and the cast made me laugh several times throughout their interview. We sat a little futher back than we did the first 2 times we saw Conan but Spreckles is so small there really isn't a bad seat. 
Picking up our tickets at the Box Office!

So how do you get Conan tickets for Comic-Con?
1) Make a 1iota account and fill out the profile completely, do not forget the log-in info.
2)If you are a badge holder keep an eye out about 4 weeks before the Con. CCI will typically email with a special code and an early link letting you know that tickets are available on 1iota to request. TBH I don't know if the code helps you or not, every year I see a mix of badge holders and non badge holders. 
3) I have better luck when I request as soon as possible when the link becomes available. You will be automatically wait listed until 1iota closes the request links. I was told you can only request 4 shows at a time which typically works out perfect because there are only 4 nights of Conan shows. This year the schedule got tricky, and this is how I got tickets. I requested all 4 night to no avail but Saturday was listed as waitlist even after Wed- Fri was already sent confirmations. Randomly 1iota added a second Thursday night show and I happened to be on twitter when it was announced. I requested the ticket BUT remembered to delete an older request because you can only have four! About 24 hours later I got confirmation for the Thursday night show. They had to cancel Saturdays show (and never really explained why) but it worked out for us. 
4) Print your confirmation and be sure when you go to pick up tickets that ALL MEMBERS of you party are with you. If you request 4 tickets, you must show up as the group of 4 to receive the tickets. 
5) The box office typically opens at 9 and I honestly suggest arriving close to the time the box office opens. The line will be long but it moves quickly once the office opens up. They say the tickets are in a random order but I'm always around the 200th person in line and end up seated in the orchestra section. I also heard on twitter people with 1iota confirmed tickets got turned away for my Thursday show because it over sold, people were arriving to the box office around 1pm, so GO EARLY. 

THERE IS A WAITLIST. 
This year, due to everything that happened both Thursday waitlists were cancelled. It is possible to arrive VERY EARLY to the box office and get a numbered waitlist wrist band. At showtime arrive at the box office with your numbered wristband and if they can accommodate you they will.
And of course, just enjoy the show! Its so fun and Conan is a great show host! It is really obviously why he gets paid the big bucks to do what he does, in between commercial breaks he is really interactive. I sat by the teleprompter this year and he is really great at improv! If you have a chance to catch any of his shows do it! You will still request on 1iota, so make that account now!

LOVE, MARA
