    I think you guys are talking to a robot.

  • Mary Q. Contrary

    Here I go. I’m gonna comment on the actual post. I CANNOT wait to see him at Bonnaroo. That is all.

  • Laura

    This sounds like an awesome, very smart idea. So excited to see him live in April!

  • Jessica

    This sounds like a good way to appease the folks who were complaining about no show dates in their area…and make a little extra cash for the crew in the process.

  • Dave

    Yes please! I was so disappointed when I found out there wouldn’t be a show near my area. I would definitely want to see this!

  • Melinda65

    I’d have to drive at least 5 hours to make a show (although my son is going farther than that) and the tickets are sold out, anyway. This would be the next best thing, since we’d also presumably be privy to backstage/traveling hijinks.

      Wow, incredible weoblg layout! How long have you ever been running a blog for? you made blogging glance easy. The entire look of your website is magnificent, as neatly as the content material!

  • Jason

    Can’t wait to see Conan at Bonnaroo!!!!!

  • Will

    I hope this actually happens. I WOULD BE IN HEAVEN!!! :D

  • Frederica

    And we’ll have video proof that everyone associated with Conan’s shows is funny–except Conan O’Brien.

    • m

      Uh, he’s been writing his entire life, so I don’t know what you’re talking about

      • Frederica

        What I’m getting at is that Conan himself is not funny and that it takes a huge team to get him on stage. And that his fans aren’t very bright.

    • JMG

      Those who start sentences with “and” are also not very bright.

  • Cheri

    Is this a way for him to get around that not-appearing-on-tv-for-a-certain-amount-of-time deal? Can they legally televise this without it being an appearance?

    • maiv

      According to the article, this is technically making a film so it wouldn’t violate the terms

      • Facundo

        Awesome post, I mean Conan could have said so many negative tinghs but he chose a message of humility and left us all with inspiration. You just wanted to reach out and give him a big hug for being so humble about the situation. You could tell that the audience felt it.

  • Remerdre

    Since his tour doesn’t include my hometown, I think the documentary is a GREAT idea.

  • Frederica

    That wasn’t a sentence.

  • Laney

    Maybe you ought to not use this message board for spam?

  • niki

    Omg – EIGHT years older than you!? Wow that is totally taboo and I bet that website is the only place in the universe you can meet someone that much older than you without it being creepy……

  • Elizabeth

    Oh… she didn’t use the 5 lines of smiley faces like she did on an earlier post… I don’t know, maybe I won’t check it out now… uh, decisions, decisions.

  • Holly

    Ok, Laney and Melinda, you realize that these messages are from an automated spammer and they are not real people, right? Why are you “answering” them?! Do you also say “ok” to stop signs?

  • Melinda65

    I find that smiley faces don’t outweigh the bad grammar, capitalization and punctuation, so no older/younger man for me. There’s also the fact that my husband might not approve of a boyfriend, no matter what the age gap might be.
