Conan O'Brien: Don't talk to me
'Conan O'Brien Can't Stop' is one of the most engaging documentaries I've ever seen. After countless LOYAL years serving NBC as a late-night talk host, Conan O'Brien was laid off to be replaced by the unfunny Jay Leno. Being furious with this, O'Brien decides to take his show on the road; performing 44 sketch shows for audiences in various states. The documentary focuses on his [short] time off air prior to his employment as a talk show host on TBS.
Team Coco at it's finest. I'm not one to watch documentaries, but it's doubtful that I'll skip something Conan related (the guy's funny to me), and I am certainly grateful I saw this one. There are countless jokes he makes throughout that only hardcore Coco fans would understand, and when they hit you, it'll have you laughing for days. There are some laughs for everyone; most notably the Jack McBrayer tease with Jon Hamm.
It's not all fun and games though; we see a much darker side of Conan that nobody expected nor wanted to see, yet I found it somewhat engrossing. It's odd; on stage, Conan's a laugh riot, and easily clicks with the audience; off stage, he's a control freak, and sort of a wreck, but always remains true to who he is emotionally. Regardless, 'Conan O'Brien Can't Stop' is a documentary that is good for a watch if you are at all interested in the exploits of this funny, funny man who will always be superior to Jay Leno.
