In 2009, Conan O'Brien took over for Jay Leno as host of NBC's "The Tonight Show," but, after only seven months on the job, he suddenly found himself unemployed. Embroiled in a legal battle with the network, Conan took his talents on the road for a 32-city comedy show aptly titled "The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour."

    What seems to be a simple documentary following Conan O\'Brien on his live tour, is also an exhausting roller-coaster ride of hilarity, melancholy, anger, arrogance, farce and gratefulness. Hilarity in the constant ways Conan tries (and succeeds) to entertain everyone around him. Melancholy and anger in seeing Conan fight with his emotions of having to cope with a broken dream of hosting The Tonight Show, with both morose moments and slapstick jabs to the people that let him down. Arrogance in his \"Mean Conan\"-persona to the people closest to him, and in trying to cope with the many demands of fans. Farce, in the moments where things boil over and Conan truly can\'t stop talking, singing, being courteous to everyone around him. Gratefulness, in the fact that he keeps on keeping on, because he knows that people care and want to live up to their expectations. Conan O\'Brien Can\'t Stop is truly the perfect title to this documentary, but you only really understand that after watching it.
