Conan Kicks Off Tour, Signs with TBS

It sounds like Conan O’Briens “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television” tour got off to a rousing start in Eugene, OR last night

He was joined on stage with Andy Richter, Spoon, Reggie Watt, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and several of his other famous bits — aptly renamed. 

The Masturbating Bear morphed into the Self-Pleasuring Panda and the Walker Texas Ranger Lever turned into the Chuck Norris Rural Policeman Handle.

Relatedly, O’Brien inked a deal with TBS to return to tv in November.  He’ll be paid seven figures to do so.  It was long rumored he would sign with FOX, but at the end of the day it matters little if someone is on a network or cable channel.
