3/11/2010 12:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

conan obrien comedy tourConan O'Brien has announced a 30-city comedy tour -- but he's warning his fans, it's gonna be a "half-assed" performance.

As for what O'Brien will actually be doing on tour, Conan claims each show will be a "night of music, comedy, hugging and the occasional awkward silence."

The tour, which begins April 12 in Oregon, is officially titled "The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour."

O'Brien will hit major cities across the country -- and Canada -- and will even be back in L.A. on April 24.

While African-Americans make up 12 percent of the U.S. population, that population accounts for nearly half of all reported syphilis and chlamydia cases, more than 70 percent of all reported gonorrhea cases and about half of all new HIV infections.

And, according to CDC experts, while African-American women and men are often unwilling to get tested, doctors are often reluctant to discuss sexual health with their patients -- particularly with black male patients.

YEAH....sounds good, very funny twist on the legal junk thrown his way. Now if you want to see him you can and if not don't. I think it is great to have the option, otside of all that hoopla at NBC and the braindead movers and shakers....... YEAH, Conan is very funny in person, on tour, an entirely different & enjoyable experience. If you have not seen his stand up you do not know, very cool. Not NBC driven, the live appearance is a good show.

Cops: Dozen Bags of Cocaine Found in Girlicious Band Member's Purse

GLENDALE, Calif. — Police say a member of the pop group Girlicious was arrested after Glendale officers found more than a dozen plastic bags of cocaine in her Gucci purse during a traffic stop.

Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz says 21-year-old Natalie Mejia was being held Wednesday in jail in the Los Angeles suburb on suspicion of cocaine for sale or distribution.

Lorenz says Mejia was a passenger in a car driven by 28-year-old Peter Asencio Tuesday night when Asencio was pulled over for speeding.

Police say Mejia had just dined at a restaurant in Burbank and was heading to the airport and late for a flight.

Lorenz says Asencio was arrested on the same drug charge. Police determined that Asencio also was driving with a suspended license.

He is still WAY funnier than Jay Leno will ever be......

Is it me or doesn't anyone see Jay always has to look at his telepromter - there is nothing spontaneously funny about him when he gets to his desk. Sure the others may have telepromters but their delivery is so much more natural and not contrived. Jay is simply not funny.....like Dane Cook.
