Hal Sparks is a man of many talents--rocking his man-itude on Queer as Folk, hosting Talk Soup and rocking out with his band Zero 1. He's even able to add personality to the unspeakably lame lines doled out to him on VH-1's various I Love The Whatnot programs. But most of all, Sparks is a champion saver of flavor. His soul patch has more soul than any patch deserves. It is an American comedy institution. See for yourself when Sparks headlines the Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road in Addison this weekend. Showtimes are 8:30 p.m. Thursday; 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday; 6:30, 9 and 11:30 p.m. Saturday; and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $17 to $20. Call 972-404-8501 or visit improvclubs.com.
