Green, Tom

Canadian-born shock comic who’s making it big on U.S. television by being willing to do literally anything, right up to humping dead animals and dating Drew Barrymore. What makes him funny and frightening at the same time is that he’s shortened the gap between television comedy and cruelty/criminal perversity spectacles the medium has been heading toward for thirty years, and he’s made it look easy.
