It began with being a stand up as a teen, led to a career in public access TV which garnered enough attention to move up to MTV on to movies and more...so is the career of Comedian Tom Green. Tom is live in Muskegon at The Back Alley Comedy Club November 30th and December 1st and we caught up with the legandary comic for a few minutes to talk about his career in advance of the shows.
The guy has really done it all. From comedy to rapping, radio, television and movies...Tom Green has not taken a break since 1986, which, if my math is correct would have made him about 15 at the time. Even a bout with cancer didn't stop him. He turned the experience into a pretty touching and very personal story of living through the experience of the entire process, even the graphic parts...which drew some pretty good acclaim. To me, it was more proof that most comedians are much more in touch with themselves and those around them than what you see in the act.
He's back out touring now, and Muskegon is lucky to have him for Friday November 30th and Saturday December 1st for 2 shows each night. Shows both nights are at 6:30 and 9:30p and tickets are still available. You can find a link for them by clicking on the photo below.
I had a chance to catch up with Tom for a few minutes when he got to town this morning, take a listen.
