TypeConverter Doesn't Convert To Types

For some reason, the fact that the following code throws a NotSupportedException ('TypeConverter' is unable to convert 'System.String' to 'System.Type') made me laugh:

using System;
using System.ComponentModel;

namespace TypeConversion
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            TypeConverter converter = new TypeConverter();
            Type convertedType = (Type)converter.ConvertTo(
                "TypeConversion.Program, TypeConversion", typeof(Type));
        }
    }
}
