Abramorama, an indie distribution company, will handle all the theatrical distribution and Magnolia Home Entertainment will take over for the VOD release.

The documentary follows Conan after he left The Tonight Show when he was unable to go on TV. So the funnyman grew a beard and toured the country with his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour.  The tour, featuring both music and comedy, proved to be a success and NBC ended up being the butt of a lot of jokes.
