Right..I was watching The Tom Green Show the other day with my dad, and my dad thought it was absolute CRAP! As did my friend   :p But I thought it was GREAT   :laff: So I was just wondering what u guys think? Is he funny or just plain annoying?  :)

I thought he was funny but only in small doses.
My friends and I rented his film Freddy Got Fingered and dfispite the trailer being funny it was the beggest pile of donkey s#!t I have ever seen. He can be funny but he is also stupid. Like the guys of Jackass very funny what the do but I would still call them insane.

Tom Green can be funny, and actually is quite intelligent when he's not being a dumbass. The only problem is that his gags go on for too long. He'll go hump something in public, but then he'll keep doing it for 10 minutes while yelling weird things. I don't watch his show or Jackass, but it's a wonder that they get paid so much money to act like morons. Probably the same demographic keeping Fox's reality shows afloat.    :rolleyes:

Nah it's because shows like Jackass appeal to those of us who like to see other people hurting themselves always fun  :)

MTV cancelled Tom Green and Jackass, though they'll always live on in reruns.   :)

He's funny initially, but his jokes can get old quick. Especially that eating-the-gross-things bit. I don't know what Drew Barrymore saw in him.

Yea he is quite a nut, and that is entertaining for a while but often times i find myself laughing at him not because its all that funny, but because its just so damn nasty.

Letterman's old "annoy people on the street" bits were so much funnier it's not even funny. He's such a witty guy. No matter what other people would say to him, he'd always have something hilarious to say in return. Compare that to Tom Green, who just starts yelling or humping things when he runs out of stuff to say.

Also, Tom Green doesn't have a hidden camera. It's just a guy with a normal camera, in plain sight. So instead of being fooled about these outrageous situations, people just look at the camera and say "why is he filming this?".

Nothing beats Letterman and Rupert with his hidden camera glasses. Sigh...they had to stop when someone pulled a knife out on them. What a shame.

Another great Canadian!  :p
He's pretty funny... but too much is annoying. I liked the fake thing of him on Family Guy:
Do people like me? CAN I STOP THIS!?!

Tom Green was funny, now he's not. There's a fine line between barricading a cereal aisle claiming people are going to attack the supermarket (funny) and cutting open a dead deer on the road, taking its insides out and running around the street with the skins on you like a moron (not funny).

To praraphrase Norm McDonald:

Drew Barrymore divorced Tom Green when she realized that she was Drew Barrymore and he was Tom Green.

Never seen him, although I heard he shagged a dead moose in the name of comedy. That ain't funny, it's wrong!
Jackass has it's funny moments, usually about 2 to 5 miniutes of hilarity in a sea of gross.

How can you judge him if you have not seen his work, mind you probably better if you keep on judging otherwise you will be scared for life.

Since we are talking about a contriversial Comedian... What do you people think of George Carlin?  The Younger people here might not know who i am talking about but If you do what do you feel about him?  Me? I think he is absoulutly fucking hillarious, yet at the same time he is one...WIERD individual and if the world worked like he wanted it to we would all be in trouble.  So whadda all you people think?

George Carlin is a genius and does not belong in the same thread as Tom "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!" Green.

I couldn't say anything here better than others before me: I'll just mention the lengthy Jabootu's Review of "Freedy Got Fingered" which captures my feelings--about the film, Green, and his claim to fame--perfectly.

Thank you wu_konguk for giving me better thoughts... You're right I should'nt judge people before I've seen their work!

Did anyone see the skit where he was in the bubble at a softball game. The best part was when the guys on the team were going to really beat him with a bat!
He would make me break my vows with Tae-kwon-do.
