Conan O'Brien's new live show gets thumbs-up from critics


Conan O'Brien

Conan O'Brien's on-the-road show, "The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television," has received rave reviews out of the starting gate.

Said Rolling Stones about the show - “With no couch or desk in sight, Conan lorded over the proceedings from the front of the stage, flanked by longtime sidekick Andy Richter and backed by the very band that spent 17 years with him on TV – without leader Max Weinberg.

"The vibe was much more "Late Night" than "Tonight Show," with Conan strolling on stage looking like a paler, redheaded Barry Gibb, complete with full beard, no tie, and the top two buttons undone on his shirt. The content of the show occasionally strayed to places he’s never gone on TV, with a smattering of profanities tossed in to give the show an edgier feel."

People also raved about the show, “On the very day he announced the launch of his upcoming new TV show on Fox – oops, make that TBS – the famously deposed Tonight show host kicked off his 32-city North American live comedy tour at the Hult Center for the Performing Arts before an appreciative crowd of more than 2,500 people."

As described by New York’s WNBC News on Tuesday morning, "The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on TV" presentation found O’Brien delivering ‘gentle’ jibes toward his onetime bosses at NBC."

A show not to be missed.
