On your radar: The Clearwater Jazz Holiday and a Halloween-themed improv show

Clearwater Jazz Holiday: The annual fest bringing a variety of musicians to Clearwater kicks off today with music by Bonnie Raitt and runs through Sunday, closing with headliner the Avett Brothers. Today's music starts at 5 p.m. at Coachman Park, 301 Drew St. $10 one-day pass, $15 pass for Saturday and Sunday, $30 four-day pass. Kids under 12 are free. (727) 461-5200.

Opera at the Dalí: Introduces audiences to emerging opera artists through 20-minute performances held on the Spiral Staircase in the lobby. It starts at 6 p.m. at the Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg. Free. (727) 823-3767.

Charlie Murphy: Murphy is best known from Chappelle's Show, where he breathlessly recounted stories about meeting Rick James and Prince. Yet Eddie Murphy's older brother has since been a hard-working standup, releasing his special I Will Not Apologize in 2010. See him at 8 p.m. at Improv Comedy Theater in Tampa. $27. (813) 864-4000.

Some Sort of Show: Sketch comedy and the spooky season mix in this Halloween-themed show from the Tampa improv group. See them at 9 p.m. at Market on 7th, 1816 E Seventh Ave., Tampa. $5. (813) 248-2356.

Date night

Music and Movies in the Park: Singer/songwriter Gale Trippsmith warms up the crowd before a screening of the 2000 Will Smith-Matt Damon movie The Legend of Bagger Vance. Music starts at 6 p.m., film starts at dark at North Straub Park in St. Petersburg. Free.

To watch

Two and a Half Men, 8:30 p.m., CBS Miley Cyrus guest stars as Walden's friend's daughter. In case you didn't think a dumb show could get any dumber.

Season premiere; Sweet Genius, 10 p.m., Food: More Top Chef, dessert-style. If they're going to rip off a concept, at least they're doing it with food people in America would actually eat.
