Comedians Bob Nelson, Rain Pryor, Artie Fletcher coming to Tampa

Veteran comedians and comedy royalty will make a stop in Tampa for the Joke's on You Comedy Tour on Saturday night. It features Bob Nelson, who has made several HBO specials and appearances on the The Tonight Show, along with Rain Pryor, daughter of comedy legend Richard Pryor, and veteran comedian Artie Fletcher, who has been on everything from Law and Order to Howard Stern to The Late Show With David Letterman. Nelson, the headliner, was Rodney Dangerfield's opening act for eight years and was prominently featured in two of Dangerfield's HBO comedy showcases. His standup is more like a cast of characters, including a punch-drunk fighter, a nerdy kid named Eppy Epperman and his now-classic routine where he introduces himself one by one as members of the College Football All-Star Team ("Quasimodo … Notre Dame … halfback!"). Tickets are $20-$35 for the show at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Friday Morning Musicale, 809 W Horatio St., Tampa. Toll-free 1-877-987-4051.
