Comedian Conan O’Brien has been spotted around Asheville this week. The jokester had a drink at the fabulous Sovereign Remedies a couple of nights ago and dined at the amazing Local Provisions, recently named one of the best new restaurants in the U.S. by Eater.com, reports loyal reader Stephan.
O’Brien was likely in town for the annual Laugh Your Asheville Off comedy festival, which this year celebrated its 10th anniversary. Over the last decade, founder Charlie Grencer has built the event into a nationally recognized event, reports Mountain Xpress. This year fest featured more than 50 comics over five nights.
O’Brien, who has been a fixture on the late-night television comedy circuit (and a former host of The Tonight Show), launched his Team Coco page on YouTube in 2010, the same year he announced his own show, now titled Conan, on the cable channel TBS since
