I Only Watch Documentaries, and Trash TV // Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop

Standard

Most of the time I watch trash television. But not always. Because luckily, television is getting better. But a long time ago I made the proclamation that “I only watch Documentaries, and trash TV.” So today we bring you another of many documentary reviews to come. Cheers!Screen Shot 2013-11-09 at 6.53.01 PM

TITLE: Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop

RUN TIME: 89 minutes

AVAILABLE ON: Amazon Prime

RELEASE DATE: 2011

BACKSTORY: Can’t stop is simply that. Conan O’Brien cannot stop. After he got canned by NBC, Conan goes on a 46 show tour across the country in order to feed his need, nah – obsession with performing in front of people, and making them laugh. Conan didn’t have to do this. Although the number is unknown, Conan got a huge settlement to simply leave NBC and not be on TV. It was obviously a lot of money – but again, he didn’t have to do anything. He could have sat back, played with legos and hung out with his kids. but Conan can’t do that. This documentary shows the highs and lows, the anger, the ego, the compassion and everything else that makes Conan tick. It shows the true passion that some, if not all comedians or actors have. They don’t care who’s watching, or how much money they are making, they just want to get out there and do it. No matter what. With some great cameos and behind the scenes fun by Jim Carrey, Jack Mcbrayer, Jon Hamm, Megan Mullaly and Nick Offerman, this documentary was fun look into the life of Conan O’Brien as a rockstar. And anyone who grew up not a fan of Jay Leno and always a member of Team Coco, it will have you in stitches and come to respect the man even more. And leave you wanting more.

“I might be a fucking genius, or I might be the biggest dick ever. I don’t know.” – Conan O’Brien
