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
