Comedian Roy Wood Jr., who went to school at FAMU in Tallahassee, has a supporting part in the TBS sitcom Sullivan & Son, which has been renewed for a third year. In 2008, Entertainment Weekly put him on its list of rising comedy stars to watch because of his deft radio work, especially his prank calls, and said "his charismatic crankiness made him an instant favorite of Letterman's comedy booker." You can see him this weekend at Side Splitters Comedy Club, 12938 N Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa. Tickets are $10-$18.50 and shows are 8:30 p.m. today; 8 and 10:15 p.m. Friday; 6, 8 and 10:15 p.m. Saturday; and 7 p.m. Sunday. (813) 960-1197. sidesplitterscomedy.com.
