Conan O’Brien to hit the road with Team Coco
Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: Comedy.
After being unceremoniously “let go” from The Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien is taking his act on the road for a tour that is sure to bring smiles to the faces of Coco-nites across North America.
“The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour” will kick off roughly a month from now at the Hult Center For The Performing Arts in Eugene, Oregon, and land its only Alberta date at the River Cree Resort & Casino near Edmonton (which presently has a huge banner of Jay Leno‘s schmucky face on its “venue” page… the humor isn’t lost on me). From there, Coco and his sure-to-be-wildly-entertaining crew of non-NBC-trademarked characters will wind their way across North America before concluding the tour in Atlanta in June. If nothing else, O’Brien promises “A night of music, comedy, hugging, and the occaional awkward silence,” which sounds to absolutely nothing like The Tonight Show in it’s current state; which is most definitely a good thing in my books.
