On stage during the Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on TV Tour, Conan O’Brien was Mr. Positive, thanking fans for their support and cheerily digging at his former NBC bosses.
Away from the crowds, though, he wasn’t always quite so sunny. You can see both sides of Conan in the documentary “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop,” the trailer for which is above. The documentary premiered at the South by Southwest festival earlier this year and earned a wave of positive reviews; it hits theaters on June 24.
In the documentary you’ll see a lot of Conan doing what he does best — making fun of himself — but also moments where he admits to feeling bitter (“Sometimes I’m so mad I can’t even breathe”) and doubts himself. Team Coco is officially on board with the film, so it’s probably not a gotcha piece, but still, it’s a pretty interesting glimpse at Conan’s state of mind post-“Tonight Show” and pre-TBS.
What do you think? Will you be seeing “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop”?
