Conan O’Brien will hit the road for the first time since 2010 when he begins his Conan & Friends: An Evening of Stand-Up and Investment Tips tour War Memorial Auditorium on November 18.
Conan will be joined by different groups of handpicked comics each night of the tour, bringing his unique comic sensibilities and the voices of some of his favorite performers to venues all over the United States.
“There are a lot of exciting changes coming up for me in 2019 and I wanted to kick it off this fall with an 18 city live tour,” Conan said. “The idea that I hit the road for 7 weeks was pitched by my wife, with the full backing of my children.”
Building on the promise of a recently announced joint venture with Turner, Conan & Friends: An Evening of Stand-Up and Investment Tips, will advance Team Coco’s philosophy of bringing comedy everywhere. The multi-city tour will allow Conan to intimately reconnect and interact with his passionate fan base as he gears up for a leaner more agile 30 minute show on TBS premiering January 2019. The tour, like the new format gives him the flexibility to experiment and have fun with his audience in new ways.
From former and current CONAN writers, to comedians who host monthly comedy shows in Los Angeles with Team Coco, to CONAN: Without Borders travel partners, the tour gives a glimpse into the growing comedy ecosystem Team Coco continues to create across all creative mediums.
When the tour stops in Nashville on Sunday, November 18 at War Memorial Auditorium, Conan will be joined by comedians Ron Funches (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Black-ish), James Veitch (Conan), Taylor Tomlinson (Netflix’s The Comedy Lineup), and Flula Borg (Pitch Perfect 2, Curb Your Enthusiasm).
Tickets go on sale Friday, September 28 at 10 a.m.
