Comedy Central Live
Nov. 6/ Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center/ $29.50 – $42.50
In a show that could just as easily be called aneurysms and alcohol, Lewis Black and Dave Attell team up to spread laughter to girls and boys everywhere … sort of.
Black and Attell, the angriest and drunkest people on the planet, respectively, also happen to be damn funny.
Their stand-up speaks for itself; Black once said that the stupidest thing he’d ever heard was when a girl said: “If it wasn’t for my horse, I never would have gotten through college.” Attell cleverly quips: “You know what egg-nog is for? For when you really want to get drunk, but also want some pancakes.” Enough said.
Gov’t Mule and Chris Robinson
Nov. 6/ Tampa Theatre/ $26 – $31
While Gov’t Mule may be nothing more than an Uncle Tupelo carbon copy (less the quality, of course) that held on too long, Chris Robinson is … um, actually, he too is past his prime. Robinson fronted the now in-limbo Black Crowes, and during the band’s span revived Zeppelin-esque Southern rock. However, in keeping with the show’s apparent past-due theme, the Theatre may want to accept ticket stubs from these guys’ previous tours if they plan on filling the place up with these geezers.
Nov. 6/ Selby Public Library (Sarasota)/ Free
In an effort to wean kids off of their video games, Shelby Library is hosting an entire day dedicated to kids playing board games instead. Ha ha, good one. This one has “Jeb Bush Endorsement” all over it.
At the half, a 14-point lead meant USF was on track to win its first conference game in over a calendar year. That energy was kept up even with under five minutes to go when the Bulls were up 33-20. Then USF watched as its lead went from comfortable, to slim, to nonexistent in the […]
Under normal circumstances, Grant Nolder, president of the USF flag football team would be preparing for the club’s biggest competition of the year, the Swamp Bowl. The annual tournament, hosted at UF, typically takes place during the fall semester and features some of the best club flag football teams in the country. Winners of the […]
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
Student Government (SG) launched the first-of-its-kind, merit-based scholarship to students Nov. 5 on USF’s Tampa campus. As a part of Student Body President Britney Deas and Student Body Vice President Travis McCloskey’s platform, Bull S.H.I.F.T., — Success, Health, Innovation, Finance and Tradition — the SG’s Student Leadership Scholarship consists of two merit-based scholarships which will […]
A plan drafted on a bar napkin two years ago has now become the USF Jabil Innovation Institute, a multi-million dollar institute combining the College of Engineering and the Muma College of Business. Senior Vice President of Advancement and CEO of the USF Foundation Joel Momberg and Jabil CEO Mark Mondello jotted the idea down […]
