Alton Brown talks 'Good Eats,' playing music, developing a live show and more



Alton Brown, who leapt to fame with his Good Eats show on the Food Network 15 years ago, has kept his career moving with cookbooks, culinary competition programs (Iron Chef, Next Food Network Star and Cutthroat Kitchen) and live stage shows.

And this weekend, he wraps up the current stretch of his raucous The Edible Inevitable Tour with a stop at the Straz Center in Tampa. It's not exactly Good Eats on the road, even though there's a bit of science, some standup comedy and even some music (he writes lyrics).

"It's really 21/2 hours of a classic variety show," Brown said in a recent phone interview.

Brown's Edible Inevitable Tour hits the Straz Center at 8 p.m. Saturday. Tickets start at $40; click here to get them.
