Six years after she famously wrote that only three people in Tampa can read, Amy Schumer is back in town next Thursday, Sept. 8 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

“I was on the road doing a tour and traveling between two horrendous cities: Fayetteville, North Carolina, and Tampa, Florida. I’m not scared about writing that and making those people mad, because I know for a fact that no one who lives there has ever read a book,” Schumer wrote in “The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo,” which she brought on a book tour that stopped at Amalie Arena in 2016. “JKJKJKJKJK, but kind of not K.”

The 41-year-old has downsized the venue for this stop, but should be no less rowdy when her “Whore Tour” lands at the Hard Rock Event Center.
