The Buffalo Laugh-Off Comedy Contest is drawing to an end, with the final showdown happening TONIGHT at the new Helium Comedy Club (30 Mississippi St.) in downtown’s Cobblestone District. For a measly $12 you can check eight of Buffalo’s hottest emerging comics in a swanky new venue; bring an extra $10 or so and have yourself a couple pints of brew from Community Beer Works, Flying Bison Brewing Company, or Ithaca Beer Company.
