Go Green

Tom Green is a weird guy. It’s been almost 15 years since “The Bum Bum Song” was prominently featured on MTV and the comedian televised his testicular cancer surgery. Since then, Green has kind of dropped off the radar, but his website reveals adventures in getting tattoos and hanging out with Insane Clown Posse. It may not be as over the top as Green switching places with Andy Dick and the duo proceeding to act as obnoxiously as possible, but Tom Green still has his edge as far as awkward, gross-out humor is concerned. Green’s foray into stand-up comedy brings us back to his goofball Freddy Got Fingered and Stealing Harvard days.

Join Tom Green with laughs about bum bums and sausage at 7 p.m. Sunday, September 8, at Tempe Improv, 930 East University Drive. Tickets to this 18-and-over show are $22. Call 480-921-9877 or visit

Fri., Sept. 6, 7:30 & 10 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 7, 7 & 10 p.m.; Sun., Sept. 8, 7 p.m., 2013
