After a much–publicized departure from hosting NBC’s Tonight Show, O’Brien hit the road with a 32-city music-and-comedy show to exercise his performing chops and exorcise a few demons. Filmmaker Rodman Flender’s documentary, Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop, is an intimate portrait of an artist trained in improvisation, captured at the most improvisational time of his career. It offers a window into the private writers room and rehearsal halls as O’Brien’s “Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour” is almost instantly assembled and mounted to an adoring fan base. At times angry, mostly hilarious, we see a comic who does not stop -- performing, singing, pushing his staff and himself. Did Conan O’Brien hit the road to give something back to his loyal fans, or did he travel across the continent, stopping at cities large and remote to fill a void within himself?
There will be two Conan's vying for your attention at the Cineplex this summer. One is a Cimmerian warrior, the other is an ousted late night host who took to the road for a traveling music and comedy tour after losing his job. We have the first trailer for the second movie: Conan O'Brien Can't Stop. This hilarious party documentary recounts the finite moments after Conan O'Brien left his post and NBC. Check it out in the clip below.
