For years you've heard Tom McNamara even if you didn't see him. As the Stage Manager at E! you could hear him laugh off screen during "Talk Soup", "Coming Attractions", all the Red Carpet events, and now during "The Soup".

E!'s studios are very small and rarely is there a live audience so the "studio audience" is usually a few cameramen, some producers, and Tom. A long time ago Tom's little "whooooo"s started to be just as funny as the jokes and if you pay attention you can hear him a few times a week.

Anyone who laughs at the jokes on E! is clearly drunk so we asked Tommy Mac if he would contribute to our Best of List with some of his favorite watering holes.
