Jimmy Fallon's Tampa adventure: Pythons, Cubans and comedy at the Tampa Theatre

Edmund D. Fountain



Everyone wanted a piece of Jimmy Fallon during Wednesday's brief layover in Tampa, the last stop on a whirlwind tour of NBC affiliates in St. Louis, Nashville and Orlando.

Fallon's Clean Cut Comedy Tour was the Tampa Theatre's hottest ticket in two decades, selling out in 40 minutes. On Twitter, restaurants like Datz and the Oxford Exchange begged him to stop by. Fans gifted him with outfits, accessories and CDs for his 12-week-old daughter Winnie.

And then there was his trip to WFLA-Ch. 8, where a 20-foot python from Busch Gardens nearly dropped the contents of its significantly large stomach all over the future Tonight Show host. But we're getting ahead of ourselves.
