Comedian Jim Breuer returns to his old Pinellas stomping grounds

Comedy

Jim Breuer Known for his charisma, impressions and family-friendly material, and when Jim Breuer returns to Tampa Bay this weekend, it'll mark something of a homecoming. The Saturday Night Live veteran lived and worked in Pinellas County when he was starting out, working with touring Florida comics like Larry the Cable Guy, Darrell Hammond and Brian Regan. "It was such an amazing time and I learned so much about everything — about life, about the road, about becoming a comedian," Breuer told the Times last year. "Everything back then, I have nothing but great feelings." Maybe that explains why we're getting two theater shows on this trip. Breuer will perform at 9 p.m. Saturday at the Club at Treasure Island, 400 Treasure Island Causeway, Treasure Island. Tickets are $29-$49 at theclubti.com. Then he'll be at the Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N, St. Petersburg, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $35. For details, see spcollege.edu/palladium.

    Stage

    TAMPA — Charles Gounod's Faust sets the table early. The world-weary philosopher immortalized in a dramatic poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is in his study, lamenting his state of affairs. He's willing to give away everything he has to be young again, even his soul.
