The US comedian tried and failed to get into the iconic German club for a segment of his late night show.

Conan O’Brien made a trip to Berlin earlier this year, during which he was spotted outside Berghain with a film crew. This sparked criticism from members of the dance community, including The Black Madonna who argued that “turning a space like this into a comedy spectacle for a largely straight American audience with no context other than the club being private and gay is a problem… It’s private for a reason.”

The footage of him outside the iconic club was aired last night on US TV, in which the comedian meets Berghain-goers outside and tries to pick up some tips on what to wear to get in. Needless to say, it doesn’t go to plan, and Conan is soon stopped by a group of men who threaten to call the police on him. Watch the footage below.
