Use something like <?php the_tags('', ', ', '<br />'); ?>

From Wordpress codex for the_tags():

<?php the_tags( $before, $sep, $after ); ?> 


$before (string) Text to display before the actual tags are displayed. Defaults to Tags:

$sep (string) Text or character to display between each tag link. The default is a comma (,) between each tag.

$after (string) Text to display after the last tag. The default is to display nothing.
