Ferrini was born in Cesena in 1953. He made his artistic debut in Quelli della Notte, starring alongside Renzo Arbore and establishing himself as an eccentric comedian. During the show's airing, he was known for his trademark Non capisco, ma mi adeguo (in English, I can't understand, but I adapt myself).

Afterwards, Ferrini went to participate in Domenica in, during the 1989-1990 edition, where he created, and played en travesti, the character of Mrs Emma Coriandoli, a humoristic take on Italian housewives. During the early 2000s he appeared in TV shows only occasionally, as a guest,[2] until in 2005 Simona Ventura offered him to participate in the reality show L'Isola dei Famosi, where he achieved second place with 25% of the audience's preferences.[3] In 2007, he played a minor role in the drama Ma chi l'avrebbe mai detto acting alongside Ornella Muti and Katia Ricciarelli.[citation needed]
