Lets all hang out together this year on television, online, and in person. I am getting back on the road, doing more stand-up comedy, and continuing with my new television show on AXS TV. I also want to make everything more clear for all of you reading this website, watching my television show, and following on twitter and social media. We should all be hanging out more. Lets get together online and in real world and have some laughs.
For those of you who haven’t been following I am doing a great new show on the AXS TV television network. We have just completed over thirty critically acclaimed episodes. The show airs live and you can call in and talk to my guests and I on Skype. It’s the only show on TV where you have this much interactivity, and actually have the opportunity to be seen on the air speaking with the guests. Some of the guests we have had so far this year are people like Andrew Dice Clay, Howie Mandel, Dan Rather, Steve Carell, Larry King, Weird Al, Seth Green, Carl Reiner, and many more.
So how can you get involved?
The plan for the next few months is pretty simple. Thursday nights we will go live on AXS TV and hang out together on social media. On Fridays I will be getting on an airplane and heading out into the real world to do stand up comedy. I have just added a bunch of new dates that will be posted on the tour section of this website. Lets find a way to meet up together in a city near you! I will be touring with my girlfriend Erin Darling, who is also a stand up comedian, and she will be the feature act at all of the live shows. Come out and meet us. We love to hang out after the show, take some photos for social media, and have a beer! Then when we get back to our computerized devices we can keep the conversation going online. It’s going to be a good time!
Here are a few of our upcoming dates. Make sure you hit us up on twitter @tomgreenlive and @erinadarling if you are coming to one of the shows! And if you can’t make it to a live show then call in to the television show on Thursday nights. This is going to be a fun year! Let’s party!
October 3rd and 4th – Kokomo, Indiana – Laugh House
October 10th and 11th – Corpus Christie, Texas – Chuckles Comedy Club
October 24th and 25th – Portland, Oregon, Helium Comedy Club

After being nominated by Bubbles from the Trailer Park Boys, I decided to take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and nominated friends Bob Saget, Harland Williams, as well as tonight’s guest on Tom Green Live, Paul Rodriguez!
Check it out!
I couldn’t be more excited about the new show, and the new studio we are building. I’m so excited about it that I am going to start blogging here again on tomgreen.com more regularly. If you haven’t gotten the chance to watch you need to tune in to Tom Green Live on AXS TV Thursday nights. We are live at 9pm eastern taking calls from viewers on Skype and talking with hilarious and interesting guests.
Our first four episodes have been an amazing success and people are really digging the show. Our guests have included Richard Belzer, Howie Mandel, Tony Hawk, Eric Andre and Henry Rollins. It’s been an exciting time. Please thank all of our guests for supporting the show by letting them know on Twitter and other social media.
The detail that you might not get when you watch the show is that these broadcasts are all emanating from my very own Tom Green Studios. I’ve been looking forward to building this studio for a long time. I know many of you miss the old webo-vision Internet shows that I did from my house. This is going to be even better.
Over the last month we have built this cool little facility in Los Angeles. I love the creative process of putting the whole show together. We are trying to create a laid back environment for our guests and shed some of the traditional bullshit of making TV. We have a keg delivered to the show every week from this great bar called Barney’s Beanery. After the show we play some music and hang in the studio with our guests for a while. It’s been really fun.
The plan for the next few months is even more exciting. I am currently installing a Tricaster TV switcher and more cameras and we are going to begin blasting multi-media tweets out to Youtube, Twitter and other social networks. Get ready to be able to interact with the studio in more ways than ever before. We should be communicating more regularly here than we ever did when I had the show in my living room.
Speaking of interaction, please call the show on Thursdays. We need more callers! All you have to do is follow me on twitter and sign up for our Skype team. We give out a Skype address to call every week, and all you have to do is get a hold of us and let us know you want to be on the show. We will take your video Skype calls, feed you into our switcher, and you can be on TV. It’s a lot of fun. Just tweet me if you want to be on the show and I will follow you and set it up.
Get ready for more podcasts. More web video on youtube.com/tomgreen and right here at tomgreen.com – And more blogs.
Please let me know your thoughts on twitter @tomgreenlive
This is going to be a great year gang! Thanks for watching!
