Although he makes a good living as a stand-up comedian, Tom Wilson insists he doesn't tell jokes. "It's sort of high-energy storytelling," he says. "I consider what I do really funny theater." Wilson, best known as bully Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future movies, fills his act with stories from his life. "I don't think I have ever said, 'Did you ever notice . . . ?,'" he asserts.

"Not that it's Bruce Springsteen playing 'Born to Run,' but plenty of people want to hear those songs."
