Presented as a talk show, The Tom Green Show is anything but… Created by and starring Canadian comedian Tom Green, the series is a compilation of bizarre interviews, skits, and videotaped pranks pulled on unsuspecting victims, often targeting his parents and longtime friends Glenn Humplick & Phil Giroux (who also serve as co-hosts on the show).
The series first aired in 1994 on Rogers Television 22, a community channel in Ottawa, Ontario, until 1996, when it was picked up by The Comedy Network. The second season began airing on December 4, 1998. In January 1999, the show moved to the United States and aired on MTV. The series stopped production in March 2000, due to Green’s diagnosis of testicular cancer, but continued to appear on the channel via reruns and other promotional materials.
