Grammy-nominated comedian Bill Burr hasn’t been shy about sharing his opinions on Tampa, and Florida for that matter, and now you’ll get to hear those thoughts and more at his upcoming “Slight Return” tour.

This morning, the “Breaking Bad” and “Mandalorian” star added some new show dates, including a Tampa stop at MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on May 20, 2022.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 15 at 10 a.m. on his website.

Over the past few months Burr has gone on a few epic rants regarding the Sunshine State. Most recently, he referred to Gov. Ron DeSantis as a “fucking piece of shit,” for questioning doctors and instead doing “what his fanbase wants him to do.”

Also, while speaking on his podcast, he called Tampa the “city time forgot,” and sincerely hoped the Lightning would win back-to-back Stanley Cups because “we absolutely need it.”

“You go to Tampa. Oh, Jesus Christ. I mean, it's just, I don't know what it is down there. It's just a city that time forgot, right?,” said Burr. “Everybody's down there like, you walk around Tampa and it's like, is everybody on their way to a cookout?”
