After been shown the door, he was also asked not to appear on any TV show for a number of months. So to get around this compulsion he launched the “Legally Prohibited on From Being Funny on Television Tour.” As part of this tour he traveled to 44 cities and later when the TV ban was lifted then he started his own show with TBS.

The host said that, “Rodman said, ‘I don’t want a slick Conan O’Brien product. I was OK with that. I hope this move can be useful to people who see it.” It ought to be mentioned here that Rodman Flender shot the film.
