Jimmy Fallon bringing comedy tour to Tampa Theatre

It seems like half of late-night TV is coming to Tampa Bay.

On Nov. 18, Craig Ferguson will perform at the Palladium in St. Petersburg. On Feb. 9, outgoing Tonight Show host Jay Leno will swing by the refurbished Capitol Theatre.

But first, on Oct. 16, Jimmy Fallon will play the historic Tampa Theatre. The current Late Night and future Tonight Show host will bring his "Clean Cut Comedy Tour" to the historic venue for one night only. Tickets are $45, and they go on sale Saturday.

We're getting a sense of deja vu with this show. You might recall that Fallon slipped into Tampa in fall 2008, a couple of months before taking the reins of Late Night, as part of what our own Eric Deggans termed his "stealth comedy training."
