Conan O'Brien @ Google

After his visit to the Twitter offices, Conan O'Brien also paid a visit to Google headquearters in Mountain View on May 5, 2010, during his unofficial Silicon Valley tour to promote his other and official tour: the Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour. This tour consisted on 30 shows and started in Eugene, Oregon, on April 12. It ended in Atlanta, Georgia, on June 14.

The title of the tour is a reference to the 2010 Tonight Show host and timeslot conflict which resulted in O'Brien resigning from his position as host of The Tonight Show in January 2010. O'Brien's settlement with NBC barred him from appearing on television as the host of a program until September 2010, but it did not bar him from performing before a live audience in a concert setting.

I've just learned about this tour by chance -Conan O'Brien is not that big here in Europe and we don't get much input about what he does if we don't look for it on purpose. But anyway, this show at Google headquerters is fun. Conan shows off his comic and improvisational talents in front of the so-called Googlers, and although I'm not a big fan of O'Brien he made me laugh with this.
