Its no surprise that most people know my love for the hilarious Conan O’Brien. So when news quickly spread through the Twitter-sphere that COCO was doing a 32 city tour — I knew I had to see him. At the time, it was fairly unclear to what lay in store for the ousted NBC Tonight Show host. Since then, he’s rebounded and established a new relationship with TBS and will be starting a new show in November. Yippie! This entire ordeal has brought out loyal Conan fans from his Late Night hay days and a resurgence for his offbeat humor has surprisingly developed a cult-like following.
Last night in Boston was the second night on his 32 city tour playing at the Wang Theater. The crowds were energized and mentally prepared for any and all bizarre acts to which O’Brien would unleash.

This set the tone for the entire evening…
The next two hours went buy in a hilarious stomach numbing blur — opening with Reggie Watts, continuing with his sidekick Andy Richter + various videos , and finally ending with the Dropkick Murphys doing an impromptu concert. He did not disappoint. Here are some photos from that evening.
One last thing. At the beginning of the show, Conan gave a musical shoutout to Brookline (my current town). Wheee! Here is a video of someone who taped the song last night. Enjoy!
