Comedian/Actor Tom Green will be headlining at Improv: Ontario Dec. 15 – 17 as part of his world comedy stand-up tour. You know Tom Green from his anything-goes run as the funniest, most unpredictable personality on MTV, and his unforgettable, deliciously loony roles in uproarious film comedies including “Road Trip” and “Freddy Got Fingered.”

He’s graced the cover of Rolling Stone, commandeered the coveted guest-host chair on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” and conquered the World Wide Web with his free-wheeling, wildly popular internet talk show, “Tom Green’s House Tonight.”

Now, Tom brings his unique brand of hilarity to the art of stand-up comedy in his upcoming one-hour comedy special early next year taped at the Wilbur Theater in Boston. Experience one of the great comic minds in the field of entertainment, live and in person, when Tom Green takes the stage and provides non-stop laughter with his brilliantly cracked view of the world around him.

Tom recently headlined at the world renowned Edinburgh Comedy Festival for two weeks where he performed to sold-out audiences and received rave reviews; please see the below articles. In addition, Tom recently returned
from Afghanistan where he entertained our military troops; please see the below links.

Edinburgh Fringe Review:
Tom Green: World Comedy Tour

The fringe offers a great opportunity for you to get up close and personal with some of the worlds biggest, and at times craziest, names in comedy.
This year there is one name that really does stick out and if his packed audiences are anything to go by Tom Green has made his mark on the Fringe.
Coming onto stage after a huge announcement Tom walked in and started shaking hands with a few of the people in the front row.

A public access channel led to a MTV show which led to a variety of movie’s which ended with Freddie Got Fingered (neither I nor anyone else wants to dwell to much on this critical piece of movie history). And now living the dream he has embarked on a comedy world tour.

Show highlights: Celebrity Apprentice, Drugs, Scottish Accent, his pets,
sex, and porno mags (the bit he does here is perfect).

There is a wonderful humility to Green and his comedy is never offensive and he didn’t once launch at the audience. I say that because when you sometimes
see a comic who has a reputation like Green’s the audience can be a little over eager. With hecklers and, in Jim Jefferies case someone lunging a black baby doll on stage midway through his set, a comic can get lost and the show
can sometimes become a right off. Surprisingly no hecklers, no idiot or drunk (the show was at 23:00) making a part of themselves, there was a lot of respect for Green and that was reciprocal.

His comedy is erratic and the audience lapped it up. Because of the way the Udderbelly is a lot of people had to walk almost past him in order to get more drink or go to the toilet. It happened a bit at first and he made a few
comments but then simply ignored it.

The conclusion to his show sees him talking about what was going through his mind when he was told he had testicular cancer. A touching conclusion to a show that was memorable by a comic I now admire a great deal.

This is certainly one of the MUST SEE shows of the fringe, hands down a Five Star show!

Comedy review: Tom Green: World Comedy Tour

Edinburgh Festival Fringe

The enduring memory I have of Tom Green’s show is of his overwhelming niceness, his affable modesty and his obvious keenness to please the crowd packed into the belly of Violet the Cow.

“Are you having fun?” he asks, several times. “I’m having fun.” And it looks as if he is. He lopes around the stage keeping all parts of the audience in his comedy loop, and is a most generous and likeable performer.

The main thrust of this show concerns his reservations regarding social networking and our growing addiction to being constantly in touch with absolutely everything. Tom has, he tells us, just turned 40.

He remembers landlines and one-phone households. “I remember phones before there were buttons!” he tells us. And he worries about where all our smartphones and Facebooking and Tweeting (albeit he is a Tweeter himself)
will take us. In one funny, clever moment he re-enacts the whole rise and fall of the human species, from Neanderthal to just a blob with two enormous texting fingers.

He worries about the ghastly mistakes we can (and do) all make when communication of every kind (especially the dodgy photo) is so easy and so instant. This generation will grow up, he predicts, with no respect for parents whose every drunken mistake is immortalised on Facebook.

Green also throws in a bit of autobiography (his first shows and his time with MTV), some personal stuff about his battle with testicular cancer (don’t panic, it is hugely entertaining) and, almost like a comedy gift to
his audience, towards the end of the show he rattles off a selection of the most popular catchphrases from his “critically reviled” but monumentally
popular movie Freddie Got Fingered. The crowd erupts with delight. “I’m the backwards man, the backwards man,” they chant. “You can’t hurt me, not with my cheese helmet!” retorts Green. He seems genuinely delighted.

This is a wonderful chance – and an unusual privilege – to see an absolutely charming, great big TV star live and loving it.

Yes Tom, we had fun.
