He is a very talented skateboarder. He documented his battle with cancer (as well as the surgery itself) for his TV show, "The Tom Green Cancer Special." He formed a production company titled "Bob Green Films," named after his uncle Bob Green. One of the stunts on his TV show was televising him setting fire to the Canadian flag. He garnered an impressive four Razzie Awards for his 2001 vehicle "Freddy Got Fingered"--Worst Actor, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay (with co-writer Derek Harvie) and Worst On-Screen Couple (him and any animal he sexually abuses). He showed up to collect them. He is very close friends with fellow MTV shock-comic Andy Dick. They have collaborated on several projects together. He received three MTV Movie Awards.
