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


Tampa Theatre and Live Nation Presents will welcome comedian Roy Wood Jr. to the Theatre’s historic stage at 7:00pm Saturday, May 11.

The Emmy-nominated Roy Wood Jr. has entertained millions across stage, television, and radio. In 2015, he joined “The Best F#@ing News Team” as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s Emmy-nominated The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Comedy Central continues its long-standing relationship with the talented comedian and actor, collaborating on two podcasts –Roy’s Job Fair and Beyond the Scenes – as well as his third hour-long stand-up special, Imperfect Messenger, now streaming on Paramount+.

Wood was the 2023 host of The White House Correspondents Dinner and most recently starred alongside Jon Hamm in the film Confess, Fletch. He is set to executive produce the HBO Max project 1% Happy as well as an untitled medical field comedy for NBC. He will also executive produce, write and star in FOX’s untitled single-camera comedy about the National Guard, with Denis Leary attached as a producer. Roy’s additional credits include Only Murders in the Building, Better Call Saul, Space Force, The Last O.G., and the PBS documentary The Neutral Ground, for which he served as executive producer and nominated for an Emmy.

Wood’s first Comedy Central one-hour stand-up special, Father Figure, debuted in 2017 – the same year he was named the new host of the network’s storytelling series This is Not Happening. His 2019 Comedy Central one-hour stand-up special, No One Loves You, remains the network’s highest-rated original stand-up premiere. Entertainment Weekly has described his thought-provoking comedy as “charismatic crankiness,” Forbes declared him “one of comedy’s best journalists,” and Variety named him “One of 10 Comics to Watch” in 2016.


Tickets range from $34.50-$49.50 plus applicable taxes and fees ($42-$58 total at the Box Office & $45.75-$62.50 total online).
