Tom Green first stepped on a stand-up comedy stage when he was 15. He then hosted a college radio show, rapped with Organized Rhyme under the alias “Mc Bones”, and began his own public access television show.
His unpredictable personality was magnified when MTV aired The Tom Green Show and he soon started appearing in movies like Road Trip, Charlie’s Angels, and his self-written and directed film Freddy Got Fingered.
While he’s currently enjoying success with his popular internet talk show Tom Green’s House Tonight, he’s also returned to his roots with a world stand-up comedy tour. (Get a sneak peek below!)
“I always wanted to tour professionally and do stand-up comedy full-time. That was always my intention until the show became the full focus for so many years. It's great to be able to focus on stand-up now,” said Green. “I'm touring and constantly writing to improve and change the show. We're also filming everything on the tour for a movie, so we will be filming as we're making our way across Iowa.” The Hawkeye State is his next stop, after this weekend's shows in Sacramento.
Green is also in talks with sponsors and investors to fund a web-based comedy network which will be “a home not only for my show, but for other people who want to do something that's different.”
Here’s a video with highlights from Green’s world tour, plus a throwback to his 1999 music video for “Lonely Swedish (The Bum Bum Song)”!
