Tommy Smothers Gets Political on 'The Green Room' (VIDEO)

Anything (and everything) can happen when comedians get together to speak off-the-cuff and uncensored on 'The Green Room With Paul Provenza' (Thu., 10:30PM ET on SHO).

On Thursday's edition, Tommy Smothers got very upset with Penn Jillette when Jillette uttered the name 'The Smothers Brothers Show' in the same sentence with 'The Glenn Beck Show.' "When you say 'Glenn Beck' and 'The Smother Brothers' I'm really offended," Smothers said. "Because we never said things that were stupid and prejudicial and ..."

Clearly, this was a sore spot for the very liberal Smothers, who's always played it for laughs and rarely has shown his serious side. He just couldn't understand why Jillette -- whom he admired -- would fraternize with the clearly very conservative Beck.

[Spoiler alert]

"You're so intelligent and you follow this stuff and you go on there and you sit with Glenn Beck and you agree with that bull****. What the f**k happened to you on the way? Drugs?"

"I'm pissed off at you," Smothers summed up.
