Revisiting the heyday of department stores and five-and-dimes

Adam Ferrara

Adam Ferrara is the sidekick who does the wrong thing, right thing, dumb thing or whatever thing fits the comedic situation. That's been his signature character in many TV shows and movies ("King of Queens," "Paul Blart: Mall Cop," "Definitely, Maybe," "Ugly Betty"). But more than being 'that guy,' Ferrara is a seasoned comedian, as you can find out this weekend at the Improv. Why go: There's a reason Ferrara finds the time for stand-up: He's hilarious. Reconsider: If you want gear-head talk from Ferrara, a host of the American "Top Gear." Details: Friday through Sunday at Improv, 5 Woodfield Road, Schaumburg; $19-$22, two-item minimum (18+); 847-240-2001,
