Not many documentaries leave audiences laughing harder than 99% of scripted film or television. But then again, not many documentaries are about Conan O'Brien. As the new trailer for "Conan O'Brien Can't Stop" proves, the then-bearded comedian's uncannily sharp sense of humor requires no talk show desk or television studio to be on full display.
Now comfortable with a show on TBS, O'Brien has had many jobs over the years (if you haven't heard). But few could have guessed that one of his funniest, most engaging roles was also one of his most unlikely: documentary subject. In "Conan O'Brien Can't Stop," which chronicles O'Brien's 32-city vaudevillian tour after he stepped down as the host of "The Tonight Show," audiences see many shades of Conan as a human being -- pitching jokes with his writers, relentlessly mocking his assistant Sona, rehearsing dance routines, interacting with his fans and even tipsily venting about his fallout with NBC in his home.
"Conan O'Brien Can't Stop," which was directed by O'Brien's Harvard colleague Rodman Flender, will receive a limited release beginning June 24. In a unique three-distributor deal, the documentary will simultaneously be released to AT&T U-verse subscribers the night before its theatrical release, and Magnolia Pictures will also release the film on other platforms.
