For those of you who need your Conan O’Brien fix and are tired of just following his tweets, you are in luck. Since he’s not allowed to start another show due to his contract, he decided to take his act past twitter and onto the road!
The “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television” tour makes its anticipated stop at the much lauded Brady Theater, May 15, 2010.
O’Brien who recently, (as you may remember) was kicked to the curb by NBC to make way for Jay Leno’s return to The Tonight Show perch he willingly vacated and named Conan his successor. Ahh, Hollywood and show business, you have to love the fickle little trolip. So as a result of his being jilted he has embarked on a stand up tour to keep his name out in public and hone his comedic skills.
O’Brien who will be starting his new show on TBS, not FOX as originally thought, in November has been receiving rave reviews for his brash and irreverant jabs against the NBC machine, as well as Leno. The show allows Conan to step outside his normal schtick and take chances he couldn’t on TV. I hear tell he uses the time greatly. It is an evening not to be missed.
Joing Conan is sidekick Andy Richter, as well as indie rock group Spoon.
Tickets are still on sale at Brady Theater box office, Reasors, Starship Records or online.
Doors at 7:00 pm, show starts at 8:00 pm.
