    Default Conan on Tour

    Very cool...Conan helping out his very loyal staff. I have my tickets.


    http://teamcoco.com/


    Conan O'Brien' isn't making a single cent off his upcoming 30 city comedy tour -- sources tell TMZ that Coco is doing the whole thing so he can employ his former "Tonight Show" staff.

    We're told roughly 40 people have been hired to work on the production -- many of whom are "Tonight Show" alums.

    The move is no sweat off Conan's back -- dude scored a $32.5 million severance deal from NBC before they kicked him to the curb.

    And more good news for the crew -- tickets to "The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour" are selling out so fast, more shows have already been added.

    Love it.

    Conan will be back and better than ever. He doesn't need the constraints of the Tonight Show. I'll bet this stuff is going to kill.

    pretty cool gesture on his part but it's also a very shrewd move. Giving this one away will make him even more over the longhaul. It's a win-win...not sure what Jay Leno has to do with it. I've read lots of stories about him going to incredible lengths to take care of his people to.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Just like Sam and Dave, the Tonight Show drama will link the two of these guys together forever. There will be endless comparisons whether the situation actually warrants a comparison or not.

    I got my tickets for the KC show one hour after they went on sale, I am so happy!!! That show is now sold out, as are a lot of them. The I'm with Coco/Conan O'brien Facebook page is growing once again like it was in January in the midst of the scandal. It had been at a stand still for the last few days.

    I really hope he gets his own show in September but I don't see how since there is a host on every network practically already. Most of them spots that he was initially offered, but he stayed loyal to NBC grrr!!

    I'd be curious to see what kind of live show Conan does....He was never a "stand-up" comedian and his monologue was never the strong part of his TV shows......are there going to be guests?......skits?

    If the guy really made $30 mil (i'm sure there's a lot of overhead), well I don't see how difficult it would be for him to "take care of his ppl."

    Well... NBC would have to fire Jay and rehire Conan and then re-fire him a few times before it gets to the Van Halen level!

    Don't let the recent firing of conan fool you he's loaded. He still gets credits from the simpsons. But if he comes to Atlanta, I'll go.

    Conan wasn't fired, NBC wanted to move him back a half-hour so he left. He got a payout because NBC breached his contract. I think he is trying to do the right thing and keep his staff occupied. And sorry I think pretty much all of the shows are sold out.
