Ms. Pat: The Hot and Flashy Tour


Oct 06 2024


Tampa Theatre
711 N. Franklin Street, Tampa, FL 33602


Tampa Theatre and Outback Presents will welcome comedian and actress Ms. Pat to the Theatre’s historic stage at 7:00pm Sunday, Oct. 6.

Declared by The Huffington Post as “the real hero of sitcom TV,” Patricia Williams (aka Ms. Pat) is a comedian, author, radio host, podcaster, and actress. Her critically acclaimed series The Ms. Pat Show, based on Pat’s real-life story of an inner-city drug dealer turned suburban mom, premiered its fourth season in May. The series is streaming on BET+ and Paramount+ with an edited version airing on BET linear. The premiere of the show shattered viewership records and garnered Emmy nominations in the “Outstanding Direction for a Comedy Series” category in 2022 and 2023. The Hollywood Reporter raved “Think Roseanne of the 1980s and 1990s, but even rawer” and Essence Magazine gushed “Ms. Pat is headed for the comedy stratosphere.”

Following the success of The Ms. Pat Show, BET/Paramount Global signed Pat to a multi-genre deal to produce, write and perform in new series and other projects—both scripted and unscripted— across all platforms. Under this deal, she debuted her weekly court show Ms. Pat Settles It on BET linear in 2023. In the beloved tradition of Judge Judy, Judge Joe Brown, and Steve Harvey, Pat takes hold of the gavel to settle people’s everyday disputes with a jury of her comedy friends, resolving high stakes disputes including who is financially responsible for dog poop on that rug, do food stamps count as payment, and what is proper hair wig etiquette. The series premiered as the No. 2 show on primetime television for Black viewers as well as Black women in the 18-49 demographic.

Pat’s hour standup special Y’All Wanna Hear Something Crazy?, directed by comedy legend Robert Townsend and executive produced by Wanda Sykes, is currently streaming on Netflix. The New York Times described the hour as “superb material” while Indiewire offered “There are a lot of comedy specials on Netflix these days, but Ms. Pat breaks through the noise.” Pat also hosts her own top-rated comedy podcast The Patdown.


Tickets range from $35-$65 plus applicable taxes and fees ($42.50-$74.75 total at the Box Office & $46.25-$79.75 total online) and go on sale at 10:00am on Friday, June 21. The first 100 purchasers will receive front-of-line access to meet Ms. Pat after the show; you will be notified via email if you qualify.
