Conan O'Brien Discusses NBC Split, Channels Inner Rock Star at Atlantic City Show

Conan O'Brien's Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour is less than two weeks from its close, and O'Brien seems to be using his remaining stage time to vent frustration about his split from NBC back in January.

"I'm not allowed to appear on TV, radio, the internet [until September]," O'Brien told the audience during the midnight show at Atlantic City's Borgata Event Center Sunday night.

"The entire reason I walked away from The Tonight Show is because I refused to do a show at midnight... Am I an idiot or what?" he joked, referring to the night's midnight show time.

"Snooki's probably here," O'Brien added, noting the many men he saw with "sequined leopard sleeves" on their shirts in NJ.

O'Brien also channeled his inner rock star during the show - performing several musical numbers on electric guitar, including "I Will Survive" (which included a nod to his forthcoming TBS show) and a cover of The Band's "The Weight."

Joining O'Brien were the very funny Andy Richter, Dion Cole and a video montage from Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.

"Usually you have to be at a Dave Matthews Band concert to see this many white people," he barked.
