Adam Interviews Tom Green

Green ends a long stretch on the road in Rochester

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Tom Green is performing at Comedy at the Carlson Friday and Saturday nights.

Below is the Q&A between Tom and Adam.

Adam: Last time we talked, you told me you kind of feel like a Rochesterian. You grew up across the lake and watched Rochester television...

Tom: I grew up in Ottawa so I’d watch the House of Guitars commercials, the J&E grocery commercials, Janet Lomax, Rochester Doppler Radar.

Adam: What is the premise to your favorite joke to tell?

Tom: I don’t really have favorite story, I don’t even know if I tell jokes to be honest with you. I tell stories, well I guess they’re jokes, but they’re my kind of jokes, they’re not traditional jokes. It’s a conversation when you do standup, I feel like that when I do standup. I don’t think I have a favorite. I try to keep new things coming.

Adam: You really concentrate on modern technology, some of the drawbacks of that…

Tom: I’m sort of addicted to my social media, as you travel around the country, I’m on my Instagram and I’m taking pictures and posting and I start to think this is overwhelming, this is too much, then you have to joke about it. I’m 46 years old and I remember the world before all this stuff pretty clearly and I have a lot of nostalgia for the world before the internet. We had more freedom and more privacy, and I miss that world so I like to joke about that.

Adam: Do you feel that because people know you from your former work, MTV, Road Trip, they have trouble separating you from then from you from now?

Tom: I think people don’t know what to expect sometimes because they’re thinking, "Oh, is this going to be like Freddie Got Fingered, is it going to be like the show on MTV," but I’m always talking about things people can related to.
