Best known for his role as bully Biff Tannen in the “Back to the Future” film trilogy, Tom Wilson has also played characters in TV shows “Boston Public,” “Freaks and Geeks,” “Ed” and “Ghost Whisperer,” as well as doing voice-over work for Nickelodeon’s “SpongeBob SquarePants” movie and video games. But Wilson’s mainstay is comedy, and often musical comedy at that. He’ll perform stand-up, with his guitar in tow, this weekend in the East Valley.
>> Tom Wilson will perform at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Tempe Improv, 930 E. University Drive. $17. (480) 921-9877 or tempeimprov.com.
