Things To Do

Sure, You Can't See Conan O'Brien on TV. But You Can Always Catch Him at SMU.

And speaking of late-night teevee hosts ...

Just got word that ousted Tonight Show ex Conan O'Brien is about to take Andy Richter and the band on the road for a two-month tour, the title of which is "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television." Which I mention because, right, there's a Dallas date: May 13 at McFarlin Memorial Auditorium on the SMU campus. His Web site's acting a bit wonky as word spreads, but via Twitter he suggests, "Alert! is jammed with too much traffic. If you can't get on, go to to buy your tickets. See you soon."

About an hour ago, he had this to tweet about the tour: "Hey Internet: I'm headed to your town on a half-assed comedy & music tour." To which he adds in The Official Release, "It was either a massive 30-city tour or start helping out around the house."

Update at 2:30 p.m.: Several Friends of Unfair Park have said the event is sold out, and, indeed, after trying to buy tickets moments ago (anywhere at any price), I was greeted by the "Sorry, no exact matches were found" message.
