(Newser) – Fans dying for more Coco will get their wish on April 12, when the ex-Tonight Show host begins his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour. The red-coifed one announced the tour on Twitter today, saying, “Hey Internet: I’m headed to your town on a half-assed comedy & music tour. Go to for tix. I repeat: It’s half-assed.”

Tickets are selling so fast that Conan has already tweeted that two more dates are being added in New York and Chicago. “For that second show, I’ll be doing all Liza Minnelli songs,” he says. Conan will hit 30 cities in 20 states, accompanied by his old Tonight Show band and sidekick Andy Richter. Conan explained his motives to TheWrap thusly: “It was either a massive 30-city tour or start helping out around the house.”
