Conan’s Legally Prohibited tour is in Chicago for two nights and I’m purposely staying up late to tell you all how awesome it was.
I may be biased though because I love Conan. I’ve been a rabid big fan of his since his former late show on NBC. On my first-ever trip to New York, I requested tickets to his show and got them every night we were there (this was before he was hot.) I love his sense of humor, interview style and overall zaniness. Plus, a masturbating bear? Genius.
I faithfully watched his former late and Tonight Show episodes and when the whole Leno/Conan drama went down, I was hard core on Team Coco.
And with a little luck from Twitter and Ticketmaster, I was fortunate enough to get tickets. And then jump/prance around like a little kid.
So before I head back to pack and get some sleep before leaving for Vegas, I wanted to share with everyone some photos from tonight’s show!
Kendra, Robin, Lauren and me outside the theater (yes, it was packed)
Chicago Theatre marquis
Screen image, yes!
Musical number (Conan did a lot of these)
Andy showed up! And so did a self-loving friend from his NBC show
John C. Reilly showed up to pull the Chuck Norris lever (it was hilarious)
Finale Rockabilly number (yes, that is a huge inflatable bat)
What was really cool after that last photo was Conan rocked out in the audience and even ran up the balcony to give the people in the high seats a treat. Awesome.
Conan said his goal for the evening was to have us leave and feel like it was worthwhile experience.
It totally was :) I left laughing and smiling and I cannot wait to see him on TBS in November.
Are you a Conan fan? I know it’s early to ask too but does anyone have big plans for the weekend? I’m off to Vegas but I promise to behave (maybe!)
