Highlights of O’Brien’s Middle East journey will be seen on an episode of TBS late-night talk show Conan that will air before the end of the year. “It’s an honor to accompany the First Lady on a trip to Qatar to entertain our troops,” O’Brien said in a statement. “I know they will be thrilled to see Mrs. Obama and delighted to hear my vocal rendition of Kanye’s entire Yeezus album.”

O’Brien previously entertained U.S. troops on a 2003 USO tour in Kuwait and Bahrain. His passport has been getting a workout this year. A few weeks ago, he journeyed to Armenia to shoot a special episode that airs Nov. 17, and he filmed an episode in Cuba earlier this year.
