Green goes live on Internet

Shock comic colors laffs on Mania

Internet entertainment site Mania TV! has signed Tom Green to host a live online talkshow that will debut June 15.

Green, the Canadian shock comic and former MTV personality, will broadcast from his Hollywood home at 8 p.m. PST (11 p.m. EST). The program will feature celebrity interviews, viewer call-ins and man-on-the-street segments.

“I’ve always considered myself a media pioneer, and live television over the Internet is the next frontier for me,” Green said in a statement. “Of course, Mania TV! didn’t know what the hell they were doing when they agreed to give me complete creative control over my show, and they’ll no doubt regret it five minutes into the first airing. I am certainly looking forward to that.”

ManiaTV! has a 50-episode deal with the comedian. It is developing other programming, such as a platform for users to create their own Internet channels.

The Denver-based Internet video and music network, which was founded by Drew Massey and recently hired former “Extra” producer Richard Ayoub as its VP of programming, is backed by investors that include Centennial Ventures, Intel Capital and Benchmark Capital.
