Bob Marley

Tampa Theatre and AEG Presents will welcome comedian Bob Marley to the Theatre’s historic stage at 8:00pm Saturday, Feb. 24.

Originally from Maine, Marley began performing stand-up comedy in his hometown of Portland. He moved to Boston early in his career, gaining experience in a city known for spawning comedy all-stars. He now has a weekly radio call in segment with several radio stations around the country called “The World According to Bob.” Winner of this year’s XM/Sirius Super Bowl of Comedy, he continually makes new fans around the country.

After making his first television appearance on Comedy Central, he is now one of the few comics to do the complete late night circuit including The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Craig Kilborn. He has also appeared on 100 television shows, including VH1’s Super Secret Movie Rules, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, USO Comedy Tour and most recently, Bob’s own half-hour special, Comedy Central Presents Bob Marley.

Many movie fans will recognize him from his appearance in the cult favorite movie Boondock Saints and the highly anticipated sequel All Saints Day, released in 2009. Bob co-stars with Willem Dafoe, Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus, Billy Connolly, Julie Benz (Rita on Showtime’s Dexter), brat packer Judd Nelson, and film legend Peter Fonda. His comedic take on “Detective Greenly” inspires fans to constantly approach him and quote lines from the film. Marley brought back the always funny and incredibly wrong Detective Greenly in a much larger role in the second film.

Tickets range from $39.50-$49.50 plus applicable taxes and fees ($47.25-$58 total at the Box Office & $51.25-$62.50 total online).
