Nothing like outdoor comedy on a mid-November night in Florida, right?
Okay, so it's not a club or theater or even an arena, and it rarely hosts comedy shows of any kind. Still, the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre will bring a host of fans when this year's Comedy Get Down Tour returns to Tampa this fall.
George Lopez, Cedric the Entertainer, D.L. Hughley and Eddie Griffin will bring their blockbuster tour to the Amp on Nov. 16 — the tour's first local stop since early 2017. Tickets start at $22 and go on sale Friday. Click here for details.
Cedric's involvement is curious, since he already has a show booked in this market — April 6 at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Tickets to that one start at $42.75. Then again, Ruth Eckerd Hall is an immeasurably better venue for comedy than an outdoor mega-amphitheater, so if you just want to see Cedric, you might be better off saving up for that show.
But if you like all four comics and don't care about aesthetics or atmosphere? It's hard to think of a better package for the price.
