NEW YORK — Actor and comedian Tom Green is on a quest to uncover the story behind every massive structure in the nation in “Giant America,” a new half-hour special premiering on Travel Channel on Monday, January 15 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. Green heads right to the state that defined “bigger is better” – Texas. He gets a behind-the-scenes look at the State Fair of Texas to see how Big Tex comes to life, answers the age-old question of how the 10-gallon hat got its name and he even attempts to set a record eating an 85-ounce steak.
“I’ve traveled the country performing at comedy venues for over 10 years, and I’ve seen lots of amazing places and objects along the way,” said Green. “Some things are so massive that it forces me to ask those questions: ‘What is that?’ ‘What’s it doing here?’ ‘And why is it so big?’ And I’m finally getting to the bottom of it all!”
