Conan O'Brien heads on tour
A man can crack jokes on Twitter for only so long.
Conan O'Brien, who has spent his time off from hosting late night shows kicking back in Hawaii and connecting his freckles with a Sharpie, is officially taking his act on the road.
The 32-city "Conan O'Brien presents...The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television" tour will kick off in Eugene, Oregon on April 12, and will end in Atlanta, Georgia on June 14. Tickets are on sale now, and there also seem to be some "Meet and Greet" packages if you want to show O'Brien your love up close and personal.
Although you could go to TeamCoco.com to check out the schedule and purchase tickets, it appears the site has been jammed with traffic, and you'll probably have an easier time purchasing at Ticketmaster.com.
For those of you in NYC and Chicago, O'Brien has even added a second show - but you'll have to sit through him singing all Liza Minnelli songs.
And that's not all.
O'Brien will also flex his comedic muscles at this year's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. According to the press release, O'Brien will be performing at the Comedy Theater as well as doing a little MC'ing on Friday and Saturday.
Other comedians performing at Bonnaroo will be Margaret Cho, Aziz Ansari, Greg Giraldo, Bo Burnham, Doug Benson, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, John Roberts and Jeff Ross. Tickets to Bonnaroo are on sale now at Bonnaroo.com.

This guy is smart. He's keeping his audience engaged on Twitter & now launching a tour to keep his staff & crew employed during their hiatus till his next (FOX?) show. Meanwhile, he's engendering all kinds of good will with the young generation who will presumably follow his show for yrs to come. It may be that getting ditched by NBC will turn out to be the best thing that could have ever happened to him, career-wise.
Can't wait to see you Coco!
Hey, A. Smith, Oregon WOW, your post really surprised me, in my experience faggots have a sense of humor. Conan is the bomb. If you find Conan boring, it's probubly because you have flat dry, english humor. You suck.
Sounds fun! As much I want to be excited for it, but I won't be able to catch the shows (because I'm not in the US)... I hope those who will come will have a great time...well for sure they will.. 🙂
And what excuse does Conan have after this traveling circus flops?
He 'might' have been a talented comedy writer, he however fails to deliver his own material in a manner which is not entirely boring nor stretching the audience to laugh out of boredom and expectations of being entertained.
Anyone know the skit/bit he used to do with to weird characters on teh bottem left and right side of the television screen. They were in black hoods and didnt talk but looked creepy. It was hillarious in the early years of Late Night .
i love CONAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Conan is a bright ,talented & funny man–this is a great idea. GO CONAN–all of your fans miss you. Saw Andy Richter guest host of Live with Regis & Kelly ,he is also funny too. Best of luck–get back on the air soon !!!!!
My sister and I love Conan, and I can remember watching him from almost the beginning. I can't wait for his prohibited term to end and look forward to see what he's going to do next. Go Team CoCo!!
