USF students get free show by 'Undateable' comic

Comic Chris D'Elia, better known to TV viewers as Whitney Cummings' boyfriend on Whitney and one of the leads in the NBC sitcom Undateable, is coming to the Straz Center on Oct. 25, but if you're a USF student, you can see him for free sooner. He'll be the headliner at the school's annual USF Round Up pep rally and comedy show Thursday at the USF SunDome. Students must bring their IDs to get in. D'Elia is on a hot streak lately as both a comic and an actor. He toured this summer in the portion of the Oddball Comedy Festival that did not come to Tampa (the one with Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer). And the Detroit-based sitcom Undateable was just renewed for a second season. The show set in the Black Eyes Bar (say it out loud for the running joke) features a group of odd and nerdy guys who seem undateable while D'Elia's character schools them on his luck getting women, while realizing his shtick of being unwilling to make a commitment is getting old in his 30s. His Under No Influence comedy tour brings him to the Straz Center's Ferguson Hall on Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $27.50-$35. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Times staff writer

    Blogs

    While the '70s has classic songs about rock 'n' roll on the road like Jackson Browne's The Load-Out and Bob Seger's Turn The Page, the '80s also lamented about the long tours including songs that might have escaped your attention like the Kinks and their travel song simply titled The Road.

    TARPON SPRINGS — The soprano sang an aria from The Marriage of Figaro about lost love, but she could have been asking the devil not to steal her soul. A couple dozen opera fans watched, including a silver-haired man with leonine features leaning back in his chair.
