Good Lord. Was it only last week that Conan O'Brien announced he was coming to McFarlin Memorial Auditorium on May 13
? Feels like four years ago. Anyway. Didn't take long for the 2,386-seat venue to sell out -- a few hours, tops. Which doesn't mean you can't catch Coco at SMU. (And, no, I'm not referring to the ducats for sale on eBay
, though ...) No, I mean this: American Express is using Twitter to give away a pair of VIP tix in Dallas
(and the four other sold-out cities on the "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television
" tour). Deadline to enter's Monday morning; winner's announced Tuesday. I'll pray for you.
In semi-related news: I see Kenneth Cole's Tate Lecture at McFarlin
isn't sold out. But Diane Keaton's is. Oh, and look there: On April 21, George and Laura Bush will be at McFarlin. Fingers crossed they perform their classic "Mother and Son" sketch
