Funny Touched My Bum
Circa 1999, Tom Green was a comedy superstar. As MTV's prize moron, he packed a hundred shit-filled animals into his parents' suburban home, engaged in gory make-outs with severed goat heads, and endlessly harassed senior citizens on the streets. But then Green came down with a bout of ball cancer, got temporarily hitched to Drew Barrymore, and watched The New Tom Green Show fail after only a few months. By 2003, he was writing his own cautionary tale for celebrity wannabes, Hollywood Causes Cancer: The Tom Green Story.
The post-Tinseltown plan: Dial back the idiocy from epic to incidental, launch an internet talk show called Tom Green's House Tonight, and bum-rush the stand-up circuit with the TomGreen.com World Standup Comedy Tour. This Thursday at 8:30 p.m., Green will stop at the Miami Improv to kick off a two-night stand. Tickets cost $23.54 plus a two-drink minimum. Let the funny touch your bum, bum, bum.
