Conan booked at Borgata


Deposed "Tonight Show" host Conan O'Brien is headed to Atlantic City as part of a cross-country tour that was announced today.

O'Brien, who left his late-night post in February rather than follow once-and-current "Tonight Show" star Jay Leno, will perform May 30 at the Event Center inside Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa. He'll also headline June 7 at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby.

According to a press release, the two-month, 30-city road trip, dubbed "The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour," will combine comedy and music. Joining "Coco" will be his sidekick, Andy Richter. The release also said "the former 'Tonight Show' band" will be part of the tour, although there was no mention of band leader (and E Street Band drummer) Max Weinberg.

Local show times and ticket prices were not announced. For more info, or to order tickets, call (800) 736-1420, or go to or

About this blog
Philly native Chuck Darrow has literally covered Atlantic City’s casino scene since Day One: He was there on assignment the night in November 1976 when voters approved legalized casinos.

Since then, Chuck has covered the town and its gaming industry for several area newspapers -- which is why, in some circles, he’s known as “Boardwalk Charlie.”
