On this week's '30 Second Comedy Minute' we feature comedian Brian Herberger.  As always, we only feature local comedians who are from the area.  Comedy can take you a lot of places so they may not necessarily still live here, but they will always call Buffalo home.


Brian is from Buffalo but currently living in Raleigh, NC.  He is a former teacher who is now making it in comedy and will be back in Buffalo on March 25th at Shea's Performing Arts Center with headliner Sebastian Maniscalco. He will follow up that huge event with a weekend at Helium Comedy Club featuring for John Caparulo March 30 - April 1.


I have worked with Brian a few times and he is a clever writer and performer who has a likable and funny presence on stage. He started stand-up at 18, and has been working hard at it ever since.  Prior to moving, he won the title of Buffalo's Funniest Comic in 2015 from a stand-up comedy competition at Helium Comedy Club.


Brian recently performed at a theatre in Charlotte, NC with Sebastian Maniscalco and that is where today's clip has come from.  If you missed it on the radio today you can hear it again here.

If you want to see and hear more on Brian you can check out his website at BrianHerbergerComedy.com, Facebook - Brian Herberger Comedy, and Twitter @BrianHerberger.  He is also writing a weekly article on stand-up comedy for the Buffalo News.
