Tom Green Discusses Being Fired By Donald Trump and Those Very Accurate Eminem Lyrics

September 21, 2018

Comedian Tom Green dropped by the Big Show studio to talk up his upcoming appearances at Caroline's this week with Scott Shannon and crew, and the conversation naturally veered into his breif time on season 2 of Celebrity Apprentice. Before getting into it he playfully explains, "I know the president of the United States, the president knows me… anyone who knows me should probably not be president! I'm Canadian, this is your problem!"

When asked how he was fired, he first talks about the fun week before the firing, saying "I went out drinking with Dennis Rodman on the night I was the project manager… we had a good time and it was worth it!"

Tom continued, "I slept through my alarm and I was in charge of selling wedding dresses in SoHo, I was competing against Joan Rivers" and "my whole team hated me!"

"Everyone on the Apprentice hates each other," Green admits. "They put you in a room and they don’t give you anything to do. They leave you there for 10 hours… they don't give you any food or water and you start getting angry and arguing with each other."

John Elliott cleverly says, "It sounds like our show!"

Former Olympic Figure Skater Scott Hamilton was so confident he would get Tom fired that week he took only Tom into the boardroom when he could’ve brought in two people… but Mr. Trump fired Scott! Tom would be fired the next week but he still has fond memories of his run on the show.

He recently saw Scott at an airport in Nashville and they reminisced about the whole experience. "We had a good talk, no hard feelings."

Tom Green has been around the block a few times, he was the king of MTV at one point in the late 90's/early 2000's, he’s graced the cover of Rolling Stone, hosted The Tom Green Show, guest-hosted on The Late Show with David Letterman, hosted Saturday Night Live, and was married to Drew Barrymore! With all that success in his back pocket, Tom still says his number one passion is stand up comedy. Tom also shared with us some funny experiences like getting 'dissed' by Eminem and touring the world!

You can see him do his standup routine at Caroline's Comedy Club in NYC Setepmber 21st and 22nd! You can get tickets at
