Veteran comic Wendy Liebman to perform in Tampa

Published Oct. 16, 2013

She may not be a household name, but you likely recognize Wendy Liebman from her frequent stops on late-night comedy shows, her HBO specials and her distinctive look and her standup style, noted for seemingly throwaway punch lines that are really sneak attacks. "This Thanksgiving I made a 28-pound turkey . . . pot pie," or "I really like to shop . . . lift." So you have to pay attention during Liebman's show, filled with mostly clean, cutting humor. Bonus: Side Splitters Comedy Club is accepting is accepting canned food for admission Thursday at 8:30 p.m., Friday at 10:15 p.m., Saturday at 6 p.m. for Metropolitan Ministries. Liebman has five shows today through Saturday at the Carrollwood comedy club, 12938 N Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa. Tickets are $10 and up;
