The story of Tom Green's life is told from his early beginnings as the host of the late-night Ottawa radio show Midnight Caller, through his transformation into a Juno-nominated rap artist, to The Tom Green Show's great success on the Canadian Comedy Network, and finally to his current incarnation as Mtv's renegade prankster. Described as the "Master of Mayhem," Tom Green has built an entire career on the vile and the vulgar: munching on a handful of gooey Vaseline-coated human hair, turning his parents' car into the now infamous "Slut Mobile" (featuring an airbrushed portrait of an explicit lesbian love scene on the hood), dragging a rotten raccoon corpse on to Open Mike, and getting up-close-and-personal with his bovine friends. As this book reveals, it seems nothing or no one is above being sucked into the underbelly of Tom's demented and hilarious world.
