After more than month since being banished from The Tonight Show on NBC, Conan O’Brien is ready to get back to being a host…only this time he’ll be doing it live. His tour, dubbed The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On TV Tour, will hit up 32 cities in the U.S. and Canada, including a stop at this summer’s Bonnaroo music festival. Sidekick Andy Richter will also be on hand.

Thanks to the grassroots movement that led many of his fans to picket NBC studios using “I’m With CoCo” signs in the wake of O’Brien’s untimely departure from the peacock network, the tickets for the tour are going fast. Whether the red-haired folk hero cuts a deal with Fox or not, you can’t argue with his popularity and goodwill at the moment. People seem to love O’Brien almost as much as they hate Jay Leno – almost. CoCo will be riding his goodwill all the way to the bank.
