It's Funny Friday so we have another edition of Tony P's '30 Second Comedy Minute', where we try and bring you some local laughs.  All of the comedians we feature are from the Western New York area and are making their way up the comedy ladder.


Today's comic is Phil Machemer, and if you've seen him recently it was probably at the finals of Buffalo's Funniest at Helium Comedy Club.  He didn't win, but he definitely established himself as one of Buffalo's rising comedic stars.


Phil is not new to comedy, he has been performing for a while and has opened for Doug Stanhope, Aries Spears, and countless others.  He will be with Gilbert Gottfried at Helium August 10-12.  More importantly, he will be with yours truly August 4th for Comedy Comes to Hertel.  If you see one show this year, make it Hamilton.  But if you get to see two, go to the Comedy Comes to Hertel show, it will be fun!


If you missed Phil on the show today you can see him right here.  His joke is about how he and his girlfriend like to one up each other while they diet.

For more on Phil, you can follow him on Instagram and Twitter: @philmachemer, or you can see him at an upcoming show.  You know about his show with me (8/4), and his one with Gilbert Gottfried (8/10-12), but he will also be at the Tralf this Saturday for the Roast Battle Show.
