LAist Interview: Tom Green - Tonight Through Sunday at the Brea Improv
We spoke with guerilla TV creator and comedian Tom Green at his house which is also headquarters for www.TomGreen.com's Web-O-Vision. He had literally just touched down a few hours earlier from an extensive US tour but gave us a few minutes to tell us about: the tour experience, his excitement about going to Australia for the first time, Canada's Olympic victories, and his upcoming weekend of shows at the Brea Improv.
Starting tonight, Green will be doing 4 shows over 4 days at the Improv which he calls parties and from what we've seen on his website, it sure seems like parties ensue. TomGreen.com also provides a way for fans to take photos and shoot videos that they can share with others as well as through TomGreen.com (kind of like a Phish concert?) on his DepuTV channel. Green has done a pretty good job documenting his tour with at least one video from each destination and he says he will do so at the Brea Improv as well as his sweep through Australia which begins next week. There will be multiple special guests each evening and if you look at the extensive list of guests on his web TV show, you can count on some remarkable people showing up each night.
