Hi: Good to hear you made the attempt to approach O'Brian and
Barry. Next time you might try writing a few questions in advance
using a Sharpie with handwritten block print on 3 x 5 cards. Make
sure your writing is legible. If your writing is not legible, then
try printing your questions using your computer.
And make sure your questions don't ramble, instead focus on something
about Search or The Name of the Game (or Wyatt Earp or Bat Masterson)
that you would like to know more about. And hand the one or two
cards to the guest. I wouldn't hand them a large stack of cards, so
avoid giving them too many.
While the star may not be able to hear you, if you make good eye
contact with them, the star might wave their "sidekick translator"
aside so they can at least answer your question(s).
I remember Mickey Rooney was at DragonCon 2006 and he absolutely
would not talk to anyone who approached his table unless they very
obviously had money in their hand ready to buy an autographed photo.
Some celebs are less approachable than others.
