On top of losing his hosting job at The Tonight Show, part of Conan O'Brien's buyout from NBC was that he couldn't start work on a television for nine months. Instead of taking a long vacation, O'Brien began work on a 32-city tour titled "Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television." Director Rodman Flender decided to shoot the tour and the result is the documentary Conan O'Brien Can't Stop, which starts just days after O'Brien's exit from NBC and documents the creation of the show.
Conan O'Brien Can't Stop first premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival and, at the premiere, Flender said that O'Brien kept "putting off seeing it for the longest time," The LA Times reports. O'Brien revealed to the crowd that it was hard for him to watch himself in the movie, but that it represented who he was at the time.

It’s really hard for me to look at now. This is who I am for better or worse and this is how I work through things.
