In June 2003 Green served as a guest-host on Late Show with David Letterman which led to him hosting his own late-night talk show on MTV titled The New Tom Green Show.
Michael Thomas "Tom" Green (born July 30, 1971) is a Canadian actor, rapper, writer, comedian, producer, director, talk show host, and media personality.
Best known for his unique brand of comedy, he found mainstream prominence via his MTV television show The Tom Green Show.
Green is also known for his roles in the Hollywood films Road Trip (2000), Charlie's Angels (2000), Freddy Got Fingered (2001) and Stealing Harvard (2002).
He was briefly married to actress Drew Barrymore, during which time he was often covered by the media.
Green studied television broadcasting at Algonquin College and graduated in 1994.
At age 15, Green started performing stand-up comedy at local clubs, most notably at Yuk Yuk's comedy club, and went on to do this for two and a half years until he canceled a booking to go to New York for his rap group.
While attending Algonquin College as a member of the Sigma Pi Fraternity, Green hosted an overnight call-in show on the University of Ottawa's campus radio station, CHUO.
The 1990 show, originally a rap music show entitled The Rap Show, was followed by an electronic music show hosted by Glenn Humplik.
Through the proximity of their shows, Tom and Glenn met and became friends, based on a common love of zany antics.
