Watch the first trailer for Conan O'Brien Can't Stop
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Unfortunately for the filmmakers of CONAN O’BRIEN CAN’T STOP, the buzz and drama revolving around Conan’s departure from NBC, his comedy tour and his eventual restart on TBS has all kind of passed. So this would have been great and timely several months ago, but now it’s only going to appeal to Conan O’Brien’s fans. As it turns out, I happen to be a big fan of Conan O’Brien and this film looks pretty interesting. It follows Conan on his comedy tour that he did between his network shows. It reminds me of the film COMEDIAN with Jerry Seinfeld that’s one of my all time favorites. I loved how it gave us a great look at the life of a comedian and what they go through to perfect their material. Can’t Stop feels like it has the same vibe to it, but I do hope Conan doesn’t get too existential with it.
The film is directed by Rodman Flender and will have a limited release on June 24th. I’m not so sure releasing it right in the middle of the summer is the best move, but oh well.
