This is an unbelievably generous gesture.

Conan O'Brien finally announced today his upcoming 30 city comedy tour, The Legally Prohibited From Being On Television Tour, and sources are now revealing that the funny ginge isn't making any $$$ for himself - he's only doing it to keep members of his former Tonight Show working!!

What a stand-up guy!!

Don't worry about him going bankrupt, however! NBC gave him a $32.5 million severance package before kicking him off the air!!

We still think he's a class act, though!!

Kudos, Conan!!

    so awesome - i wish i could go but both days in Chicago are already sold out!!! that was sooo fast!



  2. 2

    Conan has always been my favorite out of all the talk show hosts. Leno is corny and boring. Bad move NBC.

    stop feeling bad for this guy he walked away with 30 frickin million dollars



  4. 4

    hey @cjhurt92, did anyone here say they felt bad for him, no. get over yourself. all that's been said is that he's a great guy (which he is) and that he's doing a good thing by giving all the money from his tour to his staff.
    it's just another thing to add to my, "why i love conan" list.

    It's called "The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour". It doesn't sound right without the "Funny"…

    Why do you never fix typo's?

    Leno is soooo corny and most boring! Bullsonparade hit the nail on the head with that one. I love COCO he is sooooo funny.

    I love Conan and miss him.

    Conan's a class act, I agree. And looking from a slightly more practical point of view, all this positive press will play out in his favour, when he returns to TV. Good for him, he's one of the few rich, famous people who truly deserve their good reputation.

    Being on the road can stink after so many days if you have a family. Alcohol can become a problem. Road lifestyle can lead to infidelity. Weight gain from eating meals in restaurants. I won't go on. At least they're 'working.' They may as well try to have a good time, wth. What was wrong with 1/2 an hour later again?

    COCO ROCKS! Coco for President 2012!

    Great idea Coco. He may be the only corporation that has said they will help workers. Most every corporation in the US has made it clear that they would not hire people now to help the country and put patriotism ahead of profits. Corporate America has turned its back on it's country in its time of need. And the media that depends on advertising or corporate sponsors, seems hesitant to talk about it. Conan may be the rare exception. Thanks.
