The Laugh Factory, located on the mezzanine level of the Tropicana Las Vegas has a very special guest stopping by for four nights only, beginning this Thursday, Oct. 23 through Sunday (Pictured: Tom Wilson as “Biff Tannen” from Back to the Future).
Tom Wilson, one of the top comedians in the country, will take over the Laugh Factory stage for a unique package in live entertainment. Appearing with him is headliner Andrew Norelli who moves to the featured spot, with Timm Metivier hosting.
Wilson can be seen on a new one-hour comedy special for Image Entertainment, “Bigger Than You,” and has made appearances on all the popular talk shows, from “The Tonight Show,” to “CBS This Morning.”
He has also appeared in more than 30 feature films, of which one is very special to him. It was his breakthrough role as the villain; bully Biff Tannen, in the 1985 film, “Back to the Future.” When the movie became a trilogy, he was asked to perform in those sequels again as Biff’s grandson, Griff and Biff’s great-grandfather, Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen. His famous catchphrases included: “Hello! Hello! Anybody home?”, “What are you looking at, Butthead?”, “Say hi to your mom for me”, and “Why don’t you make like a tree and get out of here”. In every, “Back to the Future” film, he always ended up in a pile of manure (in reality, a pile of decayed sphagnum and other plant matters) —in each instance, Wilson’s Tannen characters were always trying to kill or hurt Michael J. Fox’s character Marty McFly.
He reprised his role as Biff and voiced various Tannen relatives in the franchise’s animated series. With the rise in popularity of the movie series, many people began to ask him questions about his experiences making the films, so he wrote a song about them titled “Biff’s Question Song.”
Wilson also voices many characters on Nickelodeon’s “SpongeBob SquarePants,” and has been a recurring character on many TV series, including “Ghost Whisperer,” “Ed,” “Freaks and Geeks,” “Help Me Help You,” “Titus,” “Big Love” and more. He later went on to co-star in Wing Commander III, a video game with Mark Hamill, and its sequels.
Andrew Norelli uses comedy to navigate his way through confusion and dismay. Whatever happens to him in life, he brings to the stage and lets the crowd in on his frustration and excitement.
Credits include: “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “The Byron Allen Show,” “Live at Gotham,” on Comedy Central, “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” and the nationally syndicated show “Comics Unleashed.”
