The most luscious head of hair in comedy is hitting the road for the first time in eight years, and he’s bringing some friends. Conan O’Brien will step away from his TBS late-night desk to bring the roving “Conan & Friends: An Evening of Stand-Up and Investment Tips” to 18 North American cities.

The tour precedes news of O'Brien's new podcast and Conan’s reworked and shortened late-night format that will swap traditional celebrity interviews and musical performances with more antics from the lanky, well-coiffed comedian. Among his traveling companions are a mix of current and former Conan writers as well as friends of the show, including Rory Scovel, James Veitch, Marina Franklin, and others.




Team Coco Presents: Conan & Friends will take place on Sunday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. at The Fillmore; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-5451; thefillmoredetroit.com; Tickets start at $49.50.
