Comedy is hard. Comedy in one of the most contentious regions of the world looks even harder.

Watch Conan O’Brien navigate sensitivities in the West Bank for a preview of his “Conan Without Borders: Israel” special on Tuesday (10 p.m. on TBS).

In a clip that he unveiled during his show Thursday, he mostly noted the violence and strife. Then a brief comedic payoff appeared in the form of a Donald Trump painting on the wall.
