(Newser) – Conan O’Brien’s ascension to sainthood continues: The former late-night host won’t make a single penny off his upcoming comedy tour. No, he’s simply staging the Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour as a way to employ former Tonight Show staffers, sources tell TMZ. And tickets are selling out, meaning those staffers will likely have an even longer stint than originally planned as O’Brien adds more shows to the 30 already named.
