Tom Green is live and direct
Tom Green is celebrating anniversaries. As he continues to push his stand-up comedy forward, he can pat himself on the back for the last decade of his live stage work. It’s never easy for someone to transition from one entertainment career to another, but Green has proven a draw as a stand-up comic who tours the world mixing his blend of quirky humor along with tales of his Hollywood life.
The other anniversary for Green is that it has now been 20 years since his seminal talk show, The Tom Green Show, debuted on MTV and messed with a conventional format, taking it into weird and funky places it hadn’t yet been. On the show, Green would often torment his parents in taped bits, to the delight of college students everywhere. One week, he’d put a cow’s head in their bed, the next he’d have an adults-only painting of two women having fun together airbrushed on his father’s car. And when he wasn’t making life difficult for his folks, he was making it even harder for his sidekick, Glenn, even giving out Glenn’s day job phone number on the air.
Green has created many memorable moments onstage and onscreen and audiences get to share in that tradition with him when they see his show at the Plaza this week.
Plaza, 9 p.m. Oct. 10-12, starting at $20 plus tax and fee, 21+. 702.386.2580
