The other day, a friend was reminiscing about how good the The Tom Green Show on MTV used to be. This was immediately followed by the question: What happened to that guy? After some investigation online, it turns out that Green has his own Internet talk show and hosts a game show on Planet Green TV—who knew? Tonight, he’ll be performing at the MySpace Secret Stand-Up Show, a part of the opening-night program of the New York Comedy Festival. Other highlights of this year’s festival—at various venues, from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre to Caroline’s—include Mike Birbiglia, Ricky Gervais, Tracy Morgan, and the “Andy Samberg and Friends” showcase (oh, who could those “friends” be?).
