Tom Green @ Comix 2.18.10

Daddy would you like some sausage?? | Tom Green's World Standup Comedy Tour came to Comix


--Following a brief set by Mike Birbiglia and a timespender by Shawn Halpin, Tom Green emerged from the wings to Don't Stop Believing and toddled through the venue doling out high fives with slow deliberation to the crowd of giddy 20-somethings while grabbing the side of his pants and nose-breathing like an oncoming train.

--Tom touched upon his experience getting screamed at by Donald Trump, the likelihood of Ellen Degeneres' shitty taste in music, Tom's 7-month marriage to Drew Barrymore, and the revelation that he and Drew once tried to adopt a Vietnamese child named Maddox.

--Aside from the Freddy Got Fingered callbacks, one highlight for us was a demonstration of the evolution of man from neanderthal to modern human to our future as curdled blobs with oversized thumbs used exclusively for text messaging.

--Tom got kind of serious at the end of his set to tell us how he found God while staring down the barrel of ball cancer. "Apart from wanting to get up onstage and have a great time with all of you folks who are coming to see me live, I also want to talk straight," Tom wrote in a recent blog entry, "I think we all need to lighten up, goof off, make fun of each other, ourselves, and everything else.  Because at the end of this ride, every single one of us will meet the same fate.  We are not going to be around forever.  So let's enjoy ourselves while we can, laugh, and have a good time."

--Tom's tour actually does go around the world. This spring, he's heading to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and he'll also be putting his bum on the Swedish once again.

An onslaught of fans surrounded Tom after the show just before eating him
