Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop is now available to buy on DVD. The film is a documentary about his time after departing NBC’s The Tonight Show and him enbarking on a huge 32-city music & comedy theatre tour throughout America.
As Conan was banned from TV for six months when he was forced out of The Tonight Show, his theatre tour was called The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour.
The documentary sees Conan deal with his emotions when losing the biggest talk show gig of his career, and shows how he tries to overcome disappointment to entertain the US public on his tour, and his rise back to television where he currently hosts his new talk show “Conan” on basic cable channel TBS.
Variety gave the documentary a largely-positive review when it premiered at the SXSW event in Austin, Texas earlier this year, saying “more often than not, O’Brien appears to be having the time of his life onstage — interacting with longtime sidekick Andy Richter, cutting up with guest stars (including Jim Carrey, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart), and vigorously and quite capably performing covers of country and rockabilly tunes with his band and two backup singers. He comes off as genuinely surprised — and extremely grateful — that, for the first time in his showbiz career, he says, people actually are paying to see him perform”.
