Originally from St. Louis, Tom Vize is Kathy Griffin's tour manager and travels with her on the road, acting as her bodyguard, carrying her dry cleaning, and sleeping on the couch in her suite. He previously was a waiter at TGI Friday's, where Kathy met him, and he went from houseboy/dog-walker to tour manager overnight.
This season on Bravo's Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, Tom continues to act as Kathy’s helping hand on and off the road, with his job duties expanding daily. He will also share his struggles with trichotillomania (he’s pulling out his eyelashes and eyebrows) and eating massive amounts of food while sleepwalking.
Tom's quiet demeanor counterbalances Griffin's zaniness perfectly. He is the steady rock in Kathy's life and is always there for her.
