Tom Green has started a podcast that I am really enjoying. It's a take on his podcast he ran out of his house in the 2000s that was way ahead of its time. He streamed himself setting up and stuff which I thought was awesome and had a lot of test runs. Takes calls from random listeners oh a rotary house phone and then a normal skype call. Pretty good production quality as well and he does it all himself. He literally learned production so he could do it.

Don't normally sing praises of podcasts but this one is pretty relaxing and kind of surreal.

Tom Green may get some shit sometimes but he is underrated as fuck.

I find it funny that he doesn't seem upset at all and people look back on this like it was some epic roast that made him go crazy.

Funny regardless. When he just keeps repeating barrel roll back at the caller.

I don't think anyone considered it a roast, just a funny crank call that everyone had a good time with. That was far from the only call he got from channers though, not all of them as chill.

Pretty sure that was a pre-arranged call by one of his friends doing a voice. Sounds like fukken beavis or butthead

Nah it was just a prank call but Tom Green is hard to prank and they just ended up doing a funny bit together. Here is one "Mad Tom Green Is Mad" and he doesn't seem angry at all in the entire video. Just 4chinners spamming his line with old memes and he just speed hangs up on them and starts doing a weird bit. The comments on this video are filled with people who genuinely think they ruined his career and drove him mad. It's perplexing to me.

I think it's mostly just a lot of newfags trying to fit in or lie about being around a lot longer then have been so they can claim chan-E-cred, the other half I'm guessing is just sociopathic rightoid dweebs who are obsessed with this kind of "lolcow" shit and it makes them feel powerful when they think they were able to "destroy" or "mentally break" someone over the internet.

I like RLM's interpretatin that the movie is a meta satirical pisstake about how you can waste studio money on any retarded shit if you have the right industry connections and convince the right executive moron to write you a check.

He is way ahead of his time for a lot of reasons and started out in a rap group in the early 90s called Organized Rhyme. His next stint was his public access television show in 1994 where he would do a talk show in front of a studio audience with almost no budget. His guests would often just be regular people and the bands were just local shitty bands. He filmed a lot of homemade videos doing street stuff. Things like talking on the intercom at stores. interviewing people on the street in an absurd way, yelling at people from a roof with a megaphone explaining what they are wearing and doing and absurd things that would often brink on performance art. He was "planking" before anyone was planking and his literal DIY show was catching the eyes of people outside of Canada when his tapes started getting around. This era of his work is some of my favorite stuff because it's before he went FULL licking cows ball sacks. You can see Eric Andre and Jackass clearly were influenced by him and they even say that themselves.

When MTV picked him up seemingly out of nowhere is when his career took off and maybe to a detriment. This version of his show was very similar but now he lived in New York and a lot of New Yorkers didn't put up with his shit. A lot of his skits during this time are met with vitriol and anger and he often has to run away from his pranks or street things. At the same time people were falling in love with him and he started getting movie roles and even started dating Drew Barrymore. His gross out humor is at a peak here. Not my favorite stuff but his special in Japan is good and some skits such as undercutters pizza are great. MTV gives him a fuck ton of money to make Freddy Got Fingered which is one of the worst movies of all time but also one of the best because of the Meta humor behind it. I recommend RLMs video on this movie as someone else in this thread pointed out. His career starts falling off here and he ends up getting testicular cancer and one of his balls removed(which he made into a television special). Drew Barrymore also cheated on him while he had cancer. I think this is a big turning point for Tom. He seems to get way more jaded and weird after this.

This is when he starts his online live talk show based out of his house around 2006. Which is ahead of the curb again. Fans can call in and he interviews celebrities and it's way way less crazy then his early stuff. There is a lot of little bits of gold in this era. This is also when the future "trolled" him by spamming his phone lines but he didn't seem to really care. The guests would often get wasted on this show and it was really candid and Joe Rogan can be seen on this show directly saying how he wants to do that and is in awe at what Tom is doing. He has since credited Tom Green for giving him inspiration for his podcast. A lot of podcasters do actually.

He spent the last decade doing stand up. Him and Norm Macdonald are pretty close. He has now recently brought his web show from his house back and it's very laid back. Mostly just talks to people who call in.

Yes I am a big fan lol. I will not sugar coat it though. Sometimes his stuff falls so flat it hurts but there is something I really like about how he was deep inside the Hollywood clusterfuck and spit out so quickly and is just this enigma of comedy that's sort of fringe and off the beaten path. He seems like a genuinely nice person as well and never going on rants about macho shit like a lot of the current gen of comedians are doing. He's just a weird artistic funny dude. The fact that he takes chances is admirable as well. One thing of note is that guys like David Letterman, Jay Leno, Norm Macdonald and other comedy greats really respect him.

Not for everyone.

It's interesting to see how it's all come full circle.

Catching him on MTV and then the early web show days. How everyone would just mess with him endlessly. Neil Hamburger in the background doing his thing.

And now we've got Tom returning to it all.

It's comfy.

Yeah his show is comfy. I like having it on in the background while I make food or something.
