This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Tom Green.
Comedian, actor, and broadcaster Tom Green, who performs in “The Tom Green Show” in the Back Room at Bally’s Las Vegas Sundays through Wednesdays, is widely known for his innovative, anything-goes run as the most unpredictable personality on MTV, and his roles in film comedies including “Road Trip” and “Freddy Got Fingered.”
He was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone, commandeered the guest-host chair on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” and conquered the World Wide Web with his free-wheeling, popular internet talk show, “Tom Green’s House Tonight.”
That was followed by three seasons of the AXS-TV interview series “Tom Green Live,” the interactive variety show “Tom Green’s Web-O-Vision” at TomGreen.com, and “The Tom Green Radio Show” podcast via iTunes.
Today, Green tours around the world, performing standup at sold-out venues. He first captured his unique brand of onstage hilarity on video in his one-hour comedy special, “Tom Green Live,” taped at the Wilbur Theater in Boston. The program premiered on Showtime in early 2013 and continues to re-air on the premium cable channel (and is available on Netflix).
In 2012, Green headlined at the celebrated Edinburgh Comedy Festival to sold-out audiences and rave reviews. He has continued to tour the world, including shows that feature him performing rap music along with comedy, such as his recent gig at Snow Jam 2017 in British Columbia. This summer, Green’s globe-spanning Comedy Road Trip 2017 brought him to Israel, Ireland, Scotland, England, Holland, and Sweden.
Green also is currently writing a situation comedy in partnership with Producers Project 10 (the company behind the hit CBC show, “Schitt’s Creek”). He can been seen in the new Sci-Fi movie “Iron Sky: The Coming Race” due out in 2018.
