I've known Tom McCaffrey a long time. This fact alone is one of the reasons I love him. The other reason I love him is because his comedy makes me snort boogers and pee my pants. Even if the joke is a terrible draft, even if he hasn't even friggin' said anything yet, there's Anne, having a coniption. It's something in his delivery. Or something he's put into my drink. Either way, he loves having me in the audience and I love being there. Catch him onstage before he gets too obnoxiously famous. He's already sort of obnoxious. That should explain our friendship.
Here's Tom from a tour in which he headlined. He makes that clear.
