Synopsis
Director Rodman Flender offers a candid look at one of the most difficult chapters in Conan O'Brien's turbulent career while following the popular late-night talk-show host on his 32-city "Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour." In 2009, O'Brien took over THE TONIGHT SHOW from host Jay Leno; seven short months later, he was looking for a new job. Though his split from NBC was undoubtedly painful, O'Brien did his best to keep his spirits high and his fans laughing, even going so far as to embark on a cross-country comedy tour after being prohibited from appearing on television. In this film, we see not only the public image put forward by a beloved yet embattled television personality, but also the fierce determination of an entertainer to persevere after watching his dreams go up in flames.

Movie Critics
Box Office
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] fast-moving and gut-busting dispatch from the front lines of pain management, as the late night comic attempts to overcome his anger the only way he knows how."
Mark Keizer (17 Jun 2011, )
Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "Here is a man driven to assert himself....In addition to telling jokes, O'Brien plays guitar and joins a backup band and various guest stars to perform country-rock."
Roger Ebert (22 Jun 2011, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[A]n unexpectedly revealing, disconcerting documentary that benefits from the filmmaker's unmediated approach, his home-movie-quality visual style, and his controlled use of on-the-fly moments." -- Grade: A-
Lisa Schwarzbaum (1 Jul 2011, )
Movieline
"CONAN O'BRIEN CAN'T STOP captures not just the thrill that live performer thrive on, but the tedium that invariably sets in when they have to go back to being themselves....From the looks of this documentary, O'Brien navigates that transition better than most."
Stephanie Zacharek (23 Jun 2011, )
New York Times
"Throughout, Mr. O'Brien is seen fretting, fuming and occasionally rejoicing while in the throes of what looks like a sustained adrenaline rush."
Stephen Holden (24 Jun 2011, )
