Bill Maher, Rajskub and more comics coming to Tampa Bay

Comedians who don't come around the Tampa Bay area very often are heading this way in the coming months, including Bill Maher, 24's favorite snarky spy Chloe played by Mary Lynn Rajskub and a Jackass star. Maher, who is coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Oct. 25, was last here in 2012 during the Republican National Convention and Tampa made the New Rules segment of his HBO show: "Next week in Tampa the Republicans must admit that the difference between a GOP convention and Comic-Con is that the people at Comic-Con have a much firmer grasp of reality." Rajskub has more fans than Keifer Sutherland on 24 but she got her start in comedy clubs. She'll be at Tampa's Side Splitters July 31-Aug. 3. Side Splitters has also lined up Jackass star Steve-O Aug. 7-10 and Jamie Kennedy on Aug. 21-23. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Times staff writer
