Movie Info

In 2009, Conan O'Brien took over for Jay Leno as host of NBC's "The Tonight Show," but, after only seven months on the job, he suddenly found himself unemployed. Embroiled in a legal battle with the network, Conan took his talents on the road for a 32-city comedy show aptly titled "The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour." Filmmaker Rodman Flender was there every step of the way to document the comic's personal struggles during the most tumultuous time of his career.

  • It's hard to feel sorry for a guy who banked millions for not hosting "The Tonight Show" anymore, but it's also fascinating to see a man this compulsively driven to get back in front of people and tell jokes, to hear the laughter, to soak in the applause.

  • While a lot of geography is covered, as a concert film, Conan O'Brien Can't Stop is decidedly thin entertainment.

    July 8, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's ... entertaining, not to mention revealing about the emotional toll exacted upon people who, in O'Brien's words, "feed their bone marrow to the wood chipper that is television."

    July 6, 2011 | Rating: 3/4
  • Just as he promised, amazing things happen.

  • Meta-irony can get a guy who's still grinding an ax only so far.

  • Forget talk shows; Coco should keep touring and making films like this.

Audience Reviews for Conan O'Brien Can't Stop

    Answered my increasing suspicion that Conan is kind if an A-hole. Still funny and documents an interesting time in his life, and in show business. I don't think someone would enjoy this who is not a fan of Conan, however.

    This wildly interesting and hilarious film follows Conan O'Brien as he tours the country, putting on shows after getting the boot from NBC. 'Conan O'Brien Can't Stop' shows an intimate, revealing side of the icon, relentless in his desire to keep doing what he loves, rarely seen before. ~ B

    An interesting look into the celebrity's life and his comeback from being kicked off TV. It isn't as funny as I had hoped, but it stays interesting and keeps your attention throughout.

    If I could show up not do my job and get paid 30 million dollars I wouldn't still be complaining about it years later. Quit crying you big girl.
