The Laugh Tract — Who's Bringing the Funny

Send in the clowns!

There's a lot of comedy on tap this weekend, but nothing on Sunday. That's because of the big game, of course. Hours of coverage, plenty of action, and a few paws in the water bowl.

We're talking about the Puppy Bowl, of course. It's on Animal Planet every year before the Super Bowl. That should be a good game, too, by the way.

Anyway, no comedy on Sunday. But there are plenty of options during the week to make up for it.

Here's the lineup:

Theaters and Special Events

William Shatner. This might not technically qualify as stand-up, but how could we leave him off the list? The Star Fleet Captain and pop culture icon brings his one-man show to St. Petersburg. Expect plenty of self-aware references and spoken-word performances performed with a wink and a nod to his enduring celebrity.
The Mahaffey Theater (400 1st St. S., St. Petersburg) Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. 727-893-7832 or $59.50-$69.50.
