Without a TV show to do every night, Conan O'Brien is taking his act on the road.

As part of what is being billed as The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour, O'Brien will be on a 30-city theater tour beginning in April.

The former Tonight Show host announced the tour on Thursday. 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.

He'll kick off the tour in Eugene, Ore. on April 12, followed by Vancouver, BC on the 13th, Spokane on the 16th, Enoch, Alberta on April 17th and he'llbe in Seattle for one night on April 18th.

O'Brien quipped: It was either a massive 30-city tour or start helping out around the house.

O'Brien quit The Tonight Show in January instead of taking NBC's offer to move his start time back by a half-hour. Jay Leno is back in his old slot. O'Brien hasn't announced any future television plans.
