Eccentric comedian Tom Green was so drunk after knocking back multiple shots of Jagermeister on The Tonight Show that he doesn't remember throwing up all over the back seat of the limo that the show's producers hired to take him home.
Green's admission that his on-air drinking binge last June made him violently ill is at odds with statements made in June by his personal publicist.
She insisted back then that Green didn't suffer any ill-effects from the more than half-dozen shots of the 70-proof German liqueur he ingested while host Jay Leno tried to interview him.
This past Monday, however -- in his first appearance on Tonight since June 26 -- Green expressed remorse over what happened.
"I feel the need to redeem myself since the last time I was here, Jay," said Green as he took his seat next to Leno.
Last June, Green stunned Leno and Tonight Show viewers when he came on stage pushing a beverage cart equipped with shot glasses and a nearly full bottle of Jagermeister. He then downed as many as eight shots of the dark liquid in quick succession.
On Monday, he confessed, "I don't remember anything that happened and my friends tell me I puked in the car."
Leno replied that he even heard from the driver of the car who said Green did more than just vomit on the car's backseat and carpeted floor.
"The limo driver explained that an accident had happened," said Leno, who wouldn't specify the manner in which the baggie-pants comic had soiled the car's interior.
"We'll let people use their imagination," Leno said. "It's one of the few times we had to hose out the limo."
Green said his drunken escapade was inspired by videotapes he'd seen recently of old Tonight shows on which stars such as Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra drank cocktails while conversing with host Johnny Carson.
Green is the Canadian comedian famous for cavorting with animals both dead and alive. He hosted his own free-wheeling comedy show on MTV and was also married to Drew Barrymore for a short time.
