The Joke's on Him

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. Wilson also writes and sings funny songs, which he performs onstage with an acoustic guitar. "I can see people in the audience singing along with me," he says. "Not that it's Bruce Springsteen playing 'Born to Run,' but plenty of people want to hear those songs."
