We were going to try and check out the new Conan O’Brien doc, Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop, in the Cannes marketplace but timing just wasn’t on our side so I guess it will have to wait a little while longer as the film is set to hit theaters on June 24 from Abramorama.
The pic details the 32-city music-and-comedy show O’Brien did following his highly-publicized departure from NBC’s “The Tonight Show” and is described as 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?
So that’s the synopsis, and now here is the trailer which just arrived. What do you think? You going to make a point to check this one out?
