Conan O'Brien is verboten from appearing on TV until September, per his ousting contract with NBC. That doesn't mean he still can't entertain us. In a sneaky workaround, word on the street is that Coco and friends are planning a live stage show tour, says The Wrap.

"Shows such as 'Family Guy' and 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' have proven there's a market in live events tied to TV series," notes the industry news site. And hey, there's a good chance more people will see the live show than watch Jay Leno on TV!

As for Conan's return to the tubes, all signs still point to a show on Fox.
