Tom Green Says Comedy Flop 'Freddy Got Fingered' Turned A Profit & Original Cut Was Half Hour Longer

It's hard to believe or even remember that at one time, Canadian funnyman Tom Green was once considered the next big thing. The comedian managed to take his cult cable access show, launch it on The Comedy Network where he gained a broader audience, and soon was treating viewers on MTV with his unique brand of shock, absurdist behaviour and gross-out humor.

More than a decade since that heady time, Green is two seasons deep into Tom Green Live!, an intimate, unrehearsed, uncensored hour-long talk show (guests have ranged from Sandra Bernhard to Dan Rather) that airs weeknights on Axs TV, the network formerly known as HD Net.
