Former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Jim Breuer, known for his family-friendly comedy and for his "Goat Boy" character, is playing three shows in the Bradenton area this weekend.

Unfortunately (or at least unfortunately for Breuer fans who don't have tickets), two of the shows are already sold out.

The sold-out shows are at McCurdy's Comedy Theater for two shows on Friday, Feb. 21.

But there are still tickets available for his performance at the Palladium in St. Petersburg on Sunday, Feb. 23.

Breuer was on "Saturday Night Live" between 1995 and 1998 and he's probably best remembered for Goat Boy, the host a fictional MTV show and for his spot-on impersonation of Joe Pesci.

He then moved to the big screen, in "Half Baked," "Zookeeper," "Dick" and "Beer League." He also hosted MTVs "Beach House" and VH1's "Web Junk 20." He now hosts a weekly weekly Sirius/XM Radio show called "Fridays with Breuer,"

Comedy Central named Breuer one of the "100 Greatest Standups of All Time." He was number 91 on the list, just behind Dana Carvey and just ahead of Louie Anderson.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Feb. 23, 253 Fifth Ave. N., Palladium Theatre, St. Petersburg. Tickets: $29, $39 and $49Information: 727-822-3590 www.mypalladium.org.
