The Ice House Comedy Club is thrilled to welcome the mischievous and always surprising stand-up of TOM GREEN on Friday, January 23.
TOM GREEN sparked a TV revolution with his hit MTV comedy series The Tom Green Show. One of MTV’s top-rated programs, it paved the way for shows like Jackass, Punk’d and Fear Factor. With its guerrilla video tactics and outrageous stunts, it was unlike anything that had been seen before. The Tom Green Show began on public access TV and was picked up by MTV. In a sense, it was the original independent, viral-video hit, years before YouTube even existed. The raw home-video look was what made the show relatable to young audiences across the globe, and its hilarious clips are still hugely popular online.
After his show was acquired and broadcast by MTV, Tom went on to produce, direct and star in several films. He appeared in such blockbusters as Road Trip and Charlie’s Angels, as well as the cult classics Freddy Got Fingered, Stealing Harvard, and Bob the Butler.
He has appeared multiple times on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show, Oprah, The Jimmy Kimmel Show, The View, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Live with Regis & Kelly, and The Wendy Williams Show. In fact, he is one of the few comedians in history given the chance to guest-host David Letterman’s program. He has also hosted Saturday Night Live, and has appeared on numerous magazine covers including the coveted cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
His autobiography “Hollywood Causes Cancer” is a critically-acclaimed book detailing his battle with Testicular Cancer which he beat successfully at the peak of his MTV show’s meteoric rise. The Cancer Special, a full-length television special for MTV, documented Tom’s multiple surgeries and was called one of the Top Ten TV shows of the year by Time magazine.
Tom’s independent online talk show Tom Green’s House Tonight was the first LIVE streaming talk show to become a massive success on the Internet. Audiences worldwide have enjoyed this ground-breaking series broadcast in real time from Tom’s home-made living-room studio living room. It is the highest-rated online talk show in history and has attracted A-list celebrities and comedians to appear as Tom’s guests.
