COMING UP

Halloween Horror Nights: Universal Orlando's jam-packed scare fest opens Friday with attractions based on the The Walking Dead, American Werewolf in London, Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead and more. It runs through Nov. 2 on select nights. Tickets are $42.99 Florida residents, $91.99 general at halloweenhorror nights.com.

Russell Brand: His comedy tour, the Messiah Complex, touches on everyone from Jesus to Gandhi to Adolf Hitler. So nothing will be even close to politically or culturally correct. He's at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa on Friday. $35-$67. (813) 229-7827.

Fiddler on the Roof: It's the classic musical, but this is St. Petersburg's Freefall Theatre, so don't expect it to be presented the classic way when it opens the season Saturday, with previews Thursday and Friday. $16-$44. (727) 498-5205.

Air Potato Picking Contest: George C. McGough Nature Park in Largo needs volunteers to pluck a pesky weed (bor-ing!) so they're disguising the event as a contest. Brilliant! On Saturday, pick as many air potatoes as you can and you'll be rewarded with prizes for most picked, ugliest and largest potatoes.
