I Just Made The Biggest Impulse Buy Of My Life: Conan O’Brien Is Coming To DC

I was in the middle of writing today’s Real World DC post when I got an urgent call on my phone. It was my co-worker Clarence who had very important news.

Conan O’Brien is coming to town- and the entire office already bought tickets.

At 10 AM today tickets went on sale for Conan O’Brien’s 30-city tour, “The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour.” Sidekick Andy Richter and the former Tonight Show band will join O’Brien for what he calls “a night of music, comedy, hugging and the occasional awkward silence.”

While the entire event has spread like wildfire on Twitter- I haven’t heard about it until today, probably because it wasn’t announced til today. Way to pull a fast one on us Conan. It’s not like he needed any publicity ahead of time, his profile has never been higher and I think this is a great move for him since he is legally obligated to stay off the air. He has a lot of free time. He’s already taken to Twitter to pass the time and decided to follow one lucky girl.

So upon hearing that on June 8th he will be at DAR Constitution Hall I did what any normal person would do- dropped everything and bought two tickets.

Tickets are available via Ticketmaster. Get yours today- I just did.

    Oh darn, I heard this on WTOP driving home from work today and when I got home, I immediately went to the order them but it seems like it’s already sold out. I’m guessing no one knows if there will be more on sale eventually?

    You think YOU made an impulse buy? I got a ticket too. YES was my immediate reaction when my EX BOYFRIEND asked me if I want to go with him and his friends. Even awkward Ex relations did not make me question this impulse buy.
