Fans often "mistake" comedian Tom Wilson for Biff, the bullying villain from the Back to the Future trilogy. "Yes, it's me, buttheads," Wilson riffs in his latest comedy album, Tom Wilson Is Funny. But that's the closest Wilson comes to profanity. Wilson, who recently recorded the contemporary Christian music album In the Name of the Father, believes that life is funny enough without using profanity to pervert it. "Yes, I was a late-'60s 'Jesus freak,'" he says. "If you're going to be a freak, which I am, be the right kind."
