Jon Stewart coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater
Jon Stewart is coming to Tampa Bay. Man, if only there were some hot-button national topics right now for him to opine on! Guess we'll have to be content with behind-the-scenes stories about life on the set of Big Daddy and The Faculty.
Obviously, we kid -- Florida in general, and Tampa Bay in particular, are such vital targets for The Daily Show's comedic minds these days that Stewart could probably riff for two solid hours about the Sunshine State, Gov. Rick Scott and the upcoming Republican National Convention.
Perhaps realizing that, Stewart has scheduled not one but two shows at Ruth Eckerd Hall. The Emmy-winning comic will perform stand-up at Ruth Eckerd Hall at 7 and 9:30 p.m. April 21. Tickets are $$59-72, and they'll go onsale at noon Saturday (1/21). For info, call the Ruth Eckerd Hall box office at (727) 791-7400. Click here for details.
Consider this a test run for when The Daily Show's Indecision 2012 team comes to the Tampa Bay Times Forum this August for the Republican National Convention.
