June 1–2
Conan O’Brien’s Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television tour 
Prior to the advent of television, comedians hit the road, and apparently, they do the same thing after TV kicks them off. Before he brings TBS the ha-has that NBC snubbed, Conan O’Brien will entertain the nation one theater at a time—with sidekick Andy Richter and the Tonight Show Band in tow. Expect celebrity guests, and hopefully, a sighting of the masturbating bear in its natural habitat. It’s sold out, so save up some cash and check Craig’s List the week before. Radio City Music Hall. 8pm, $44–$84.
