Conan's Playing Bonnaroo



Wheres the banana?
  • "Where's the banana?"

I don't like music festivals. I hate the pushing, the crowding, the seeing bands in broad daylight.

But the just-announced Comedy Theatre lineup for this year's Bonnaroo fest just might be wroth all that crap.

No, it's not because Margaret Cho and Aziz Ansari are playing there (though both are really funny). It's because Conan O'Brien will be making a stop in Manchester, Tennessee, on June 11.

And since Cleveland isn't part of O'Brien's also just-announced tour, I might just have to deal with all the pushing, the crowding and the sunlight-assisted performances for my Coco fix.
