A show that follows Bam Margera (of Jackass and CKY fame) in his attempts to anger his parents. Unlike CKY or Jackass, Viva La Bam focuses mainly on the torture of Bam's parents and less on harmful stunts.

This is my personal critique of the notorious TV show.
"The Tom Green Show" is perverse, insolent, and disgusting...but it is equally compelling.
Imagine the ineptitude of "The Jerry Springer Show," the hilarity of "The Simpsons," and the vulgarity of "South Park," all merging together into one half-hour show. A show where boundaries are crossed, and tastelessness is pushed to new heights. This is one show where nobody is spared from the imposing wrath of one single man! He's rambunctious, he's spontaneous...he's the amazing, one-and-only Tom Green!
"The Tom Green Show", hosted by none other then Tom Green himself has one simple concept: Mr. Green chooses people at random, and cajoles them to throw away their dignity in order to humiliate themselves in front of roaring crowds sitting in the audience seats. These hapless folks, ranging from store clerks to anonymous senior citizens do not realize what sort of embarrassing situations they are getting themselves into! Tom Green's co-host is the rotund but affable Glenn Humplik, an innocent and benign man with a simple life and a fairly mundane job. This man is a saint compared to Tom Green. Humplik is also a part-time employee at a telephone company. Hey, he also likes to look at (GASP!) his sister's mammary glands! Then, there is that guy by the window, who just sits there, laughing incessantly at every joke Tom Green makes...
What is the point of "The Tom Green Show?" Well...I really wish I knew. I cannot attest that this show has a lot of intelligent, insightful meaning, but at least it never fails to make you laugh. There are so many memorable moments in this show that I can hardly contain myself. (How many times have you heard that line before?) Some of the most outrageous segments to look out for include "urine trouble," where Humplik is in serious distress, and "talk to the poo," which is...you've guessed it. Another unforgettable scene was when Tom Green made "home movies" involving both a sheep and a pizza delivery man. Yet, there are other controversial moments which are far too graphic to describe... It is moments like those segments involving scatological humor that make you glad that there are people out there like Tom Green who are entertaining the public. They make an impact in society...
Apparently, this show's success is credited to Tom Green's sick but perceptive sense of humor. He can turn any generic event into a circus. As well, in the face of danger, Tom Green never backs down...he leaps into action! From skateboarding to swimming across Lake Washington, Tom Green is ready, willing, and able. Tom Green continuously keeps his viewers awed and amused. He often concocts the most bold, daring coups ever. His enterprises are always unanticipated, never routine. Sometimes they are uproariously hilarious, other times, you will be shaking your head in tremendous shock. Nevertheless, "The Tom Green Show" is a thoroughly fun and pleasant television show that is worth at least thirty minutes of your life.
Personally, I find "The Tom Green Show" to be downright ribald. It is all in bad taste, but I find this show to be so comprehensively impudent that I cannot help but to snicker loudly. Novelty does count and Tom Green can always find novel ways of transforming seemingly ordinary and harmless circumstances into laugh riots. Tom Green is a disturbed little man. That's what makes him such a legend! As for Glenn Humplik, I feel really sorry for this character. I would be distraught if my best friend began ridiculing me on national TV. However, everyone knows that Humplik is a good sport and should therefore take the teasing blithely.
"The Tom Green Show" is great. It if often freaky and ludicrous, but it is a joyous occasion to see people make idiots of themselves in front of camera. If ever Tom Green has a message to say to the people of the world, then he would probably say that everyone needs to lighten up a bit and have a little fun. It is acceptable to make a travesty of yourself in front of millions of people; that is only human nature. Anyway, this show is guaranteed to make you laugh so hysterically that you will embarrass yourself in front of your loved ones. Just sit back on your comfortable couch, forget your daily troubles, and prepare to laugh out loud.
Watch out, Tom Green may be coming to your neighborhood soon...
Here are some words of wisdom from Tom Green: "My bum is on the Swedish...SWEDISH...Swedish...SWEDISH"
SPECIAL NOTE: If you ever plan to swim in Lake Washington, remember what Tom Green has said. Since the human body is "composed" of 80% water, then only 20% of the human being should have to swim. The remaining 80% of the body must "mix in" with the water. Okay? Good. This is Tom Green's theoretical theory!
P.S. Do not forget to check out Tom Green's new music number, "The Bum Bum Song ('Lonely Swedish')." It will definitely change your perspective about the human rear end!
RATING: Superb Entertainment! (These comments are based on the overall impression of the TV show. Television shows will not earn a star rating. This is because each episode will vary in its quality.)
