"Conan O'Brien Can't Stop" Giving Back to Team Coco


Even after NBC booted him from his Tonight Show deal in favor of reinstating Jay Leno (*cough* Hack *cough*), Conan O’Brien couldn’t deny his will to entertain. After the accepted period of mourning (which necessitated beard growth), O’Brien got back on his feet and began planning his nation-wide tour. We can argue all day whether or not it was truly out of a sense of obligation to his fans or the families of the people he moved to California to work on his Tonight Show or if he did it because he was well aware of how fleeting the public’s attention span is for a celebrity who falls off the radar for the few months his NBC severance contract mandated he refrain from TV appearances. I mean, come on, the guy spent the early part of his career interviewing that kind of B-List personae, at least until his show gained the notoriety that made him the undeniable choice for Tonight Show inheritance. If anyone knew how fast a star’s 15 minutes could fly by, he did. Wherever you stand on his motivations, the fact is that Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop, the documentary chronicling his life on his cross-country tour, should be seen by anyone who ever enjoyed his sense of humor.

The funny and touching documentary hits shelves on September 13th, and we’ve got two copies to give away. To find out how you can win one, just keep reading.

Featuring O’Brien’s unique brand of off-beat comedy during his live performances along with “behind-the-scenes gold” (Entertainment Weekly), Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop showcases both the funnyman’s prodigious talent as well as his humor and grace during a challenging time in his professional career. Directed by fellow Harvard Lampoon member Rodman Flender, Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop also stars Andy Richter and features appearances by Jim Carrey, Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, Jack McBrayer and Eddie Vedder.
