If you haven't gotten enough of Conan O'Brien in Israel from his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds, then you're in luck.

The late night TV host's travel special on the Jewish state will be airing on September 19 on TBS. On his show on Monday night, O'Brien teased the upcoming special, airing some footage of him on the beach in Tel Aviv.

"It's a complicated country and we explore a lot of different parts of Israel," he said. "Obviously there are a lot of issues, we try to take a look at everything." The show then cut to O'Brien standing in a lifeguard tower instructing "all Israeli men wearing speedos" to leave the beach since "no one wants to see your junk."

After all, O'Brien added, "I tried to address the really sensitive cultural issues on my visit."

While the general public will get to see the show on the 19th, O'Brien is hosting a special sneak peak in Los Angeles for 200 fans the night before. The TV host gave away tickets to those who could answer 10 questions about his trip based on his Instagram posts. Those tickets, however, were gone in less than 24 hours. So the rest of the Conan and Israeli enthusiasts will just have to wait for next Tuesday.
