"I repeat: It's half-assed"

Lofty funnyman Conan O'Brien is bringing a "half-assed" live show to thirty cities around the continent, the funnyman announced Thursday, ending weeks of anticipation from fans still fuming from his premature Tonight Show departure. Team Coco can assuredly rejoice as the big-haired comedian is planning a North American tour described as "a night of music, comedy, hugging, and the occasional awkward silence" on its official site. (Three Canadian dates are listed.)

O'Brien went directly to Twitter to break the news of the aptly-dubbed 'Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour':
"Hey Internet: I'm headed to your town on a half-assed comedy and music tour," he writes, adding, "I repeat: It's half-assed."
Eager (Conanites, Conanians, Conanicans?) can visit to view tour dates, (listed below) which begin April 12th in Eugene, OR, and conclude June 14th in Atlanta. The tour is presented by American Express.

There are no more details on what will actually be included in the live show, except the show will reportedly feature sidekick Andy Richter and members of the "Tonight Show" band.

Rumors of a live show first began after Conan was booted from the 'Tonight Show' in January in favor of its previous host, Jay Leno. The funnyman left the network with a multi-million dollar settlement that reportedly keeps him off TV airwaves until September.

As much as I love Conan, and enjoy his Twitter updates, I'm getting tired of the same old stuff. Yes, it sucked what NBC did, but let's move on. Hopefully this comedy tour will do just that. I would love to go, but tickets are $100+ which is a bit too spendy for me right now.
