You might have seen the funny pictures on Twitter that Conan O'Brien has been posting of his days in Havana taping a program that will air Wednesday night.

The late-night comedian and host of the TBS show told the press he was invited to Cuba by the Ministry of Culture.

"Our thing was: Let's approach this from the most fundamental level, which is, I'm going, I'm trying to do my schtick over there with these people, seeing if I can connect in some way and make some friends," said Conan to reporters.

O'Brien said he did not want to make his Cuba show "condescending" or political.

"I felt strongly that I do not want this to be a smart, snarky American comedy take," he said to USA Today. "I don't want this to be political. A lot of my remotes are me as a fish out of water, the jokes are usually on me, I want to go as a comedian making fun of myself and make Cuban peoplelaugh. In that regard, I think I was successful."

On social media, a lot of fans are looking forward to the show.
