New Series: One Sound Reviews!

Hey, all a y’all peoples y’out y’there!

I started up a brand new YouTube channel called TheFelterSkelter, with a brand new video series called One Sound Reviews, in which I review things by making sounds with my mouth that may or may not be words. Enjoy the first three videos! Or don’t, if you wish to keep sucking! It’s your choice, fellow American!

Eric Lingenfelter

Hi. I'm Eric Lingenfelter. I love jokes. I've loved jokes for my whole life, even back when I was too young to really "get" them. Since 2009, I've been writing and telling my own jokes. I've gotten such rave reviews as "What the hell is going on?" from some cosplayer girl at UB Con, and "What the fuck is wrong with that guy?" from some drunk guy in the back of the room at Nietzsche's, and "HAHAHA!" from receptive audiences all over the ding dang place! If I don't make you laugh, I'm sorry. If I do make you laugh, I'm sorry. Visit my website at ericlingenfelter.tumblr.com for more good stuff.

The Open Mic Video Series: ERIC LINGENFELTER

In 2013, Buffalo Comedy teamed up with Hate This Films to create a series of mini-docs highlighting the various people that make up the Buffalo comedy scene. We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.

This week we are revisiting our very own Eric Lingenfelter, who can be seen on here most Fridays with his very funny video installment, Ask An Eric. We thought we’d probe a bit further into the abyss and ask him our own Qs this time. You can catch Eric this Saturday in the comedy tent at the Music is Art Festival in Delaware Park behind the Albright Knox Art Gallery. The festival kicks off at 10 a.m., comedy at 11 a.m. 

Age: 27

Location: Tonawanda, where white flight meets white trash and has a Bud about it.

How many years doing comedy and where: I’ve been doing stand-up for a little over 4 years. The vast majority of my jokery happens in Buffalo. I also go to Rochester fairly often, and I’ve done a couple of shows in Toronto, and one in a city in Connecticut whose name I wish I could remember as part of the Dykes of Hazard Variety Show.

A typical day for you is…: Outside of my brain, it’s pretty dull. I get up, I take my wife to work, I go to work, I leave work, I pick my wife up from work, we run errands, and we go home. If I have a show that night, I do that. If I don’t have a show, I work on something comedy-related, like a sketch, a video, or a story, or some other kind of project. If there’s time before bed after that’s done, I play video games or watch TV. When I get in bed, I read a little, then I go to sleep.

Inside of my brain, it’s a constant adventure. My mind never stops wandering into weird places, looking for things to joke about. My iPhone and notebook are full of ideas that I’ve stumbled upon when I’m supposed to be thinking about other things. Sometimes this gets me in trouble. I’m not sure how to stop, though.

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years: I’ve always been a slacker when it comes to promoting myself, so I’m trying to do that more now that I have an act that I think is worth telling people about.

I want to keep the momentum going on my (mostly) weekly YouTube series, Ask an Eric. It’s a lot of fun fielding questions and trying to make something funny out of them. It’s also a lot easier to come up with new material from week to week when other people are thinking of the premises for you.

I also also recently had an idea for a nerdy pop-culture/tech news version of The Onion called The New York Timey-Wimey, or something like that. I’m positive that there’s an audience for it. There are a couple of web sites that have tried it already, but they’re either defunct or painfully unfunny or both. This is less of a plan and more of a seed that may or may not grow into something later. But if anyone out there thinks this is a good idea and wants to work with me on it, buzz me! I’m much more likely to follow through on things if I’m working with other people who will yell at me if I don’t get them done.

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it: The first time I got heckled was a real turning point for me. I’d been doing stand-up for a little over a year. At that time, I would write my jokes out word for word in Word – “word” is a weird word, isn’t it? – and I was deathly afraid of deviating from my scripts, even though it was clear that my stiffness was hurting my act.

I’d just come off of a string of terrible performances at shows where I knew I could have done better, so I decided to make a change when I did my next Nietzsche’s set. I wrote “Twilight, Justin Bieber, Teen Culture Sucks” on a piece of paper and stuck it in my pocket. I riffed a few jokes on those topics in my car on the way to the show, and my plan was to just get up and let the jokes fall out of my face however they wanted to.

It went pretty well for about a minute, but then this guy started shouting things every time I paused. I tried to shut him down politely at first, but when it became clear that he wasn’t going to shut up, I went into flamethrower mode and roasted him as hard as I could for the whole rest of my set.

The crowd loved it. I got the biggest laughs I’d ever gotten, as well as my first ever applause break. But I didn’t even really hear it because I was so pissed off. I stormed off of the stage and stuck both middle fingers right in the guy’s face and held them there until I was all the way past him. He caught up to me and tried to shake my hand. I got an inch away from his nose and screamed, “I DON’T WANT TO SHAKE YOUR FUCKING HAND!” I literally punched the door open and went outside so I could take a walk around the block and cool down.

As I was walking away, Kristen Becker stuck her head outside and yelled, “I don’t know what that guy said to you, but that was the best set you’ve ever had!”

And as I took my walk, I realized that she was right. I was loose. I was present. I was fearless. The worst thing that could possibly happen short of someone storming the stage and attacking me just happened, and not only did it turn out fine, it turned out great. It’s incredibly liberating to know that everything can go to shit and you won’t die. Any fear I had of being on stage washed away.

Influences in art or in life?:

My wife, Katherine: She puts me in my place when I’m being dumb, and she’s super supportive when I’m not. Her baking is renowned throughout the WNY comedy scene, for good reason.

My mom: My biggest fan. I miss her.

Kristen Becker: She’s a good friend and a great mentor. Every opportunity I’ve gotten in comedy, I’ve gotten because of her in one way or another.

Metal Maniacs magazine: It’s not around anymore, and that sucks. It showed me that there was a whole world of amazing music out there just waiting for me to discover it.

 Evil Dead 2: See the Metal Maniacs entry, but replace “music” with “movies.”

 David Cross’s Shut Up, You Fucking Baby and It’s Not Funny: See the Metal Maniacs entry, but replace “music” with “comedy.”

 Patton Oswalt: My biggest comedic influence. I was trying to be him when I started. I’m still trying to shed his skin and grow my own.

 Doug Stanhope: For better and for worse, the most fearless stand-up out there. The textbook definition of doesn’t give a fuck.

 Maria Bamford: The other most fearless stand-up out there. She dares to be odd. She’s also a really nice lady. She was the first big time comic I’d ever worked with, and when I came off stage she gave me a big hug and yelled, “YOU WERE SO GOOOOOOOD!” I’ll never forget that.

 The Kids in the Hall: Still the best sketch troupe of all time, in my opinion, which is correct.

 Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer: The creators of my single most favoritest entertainment property in the history of everything, The Venture Bros. That show is like manna. I watch it and I’m instantly inspired.

 Erik Wolpaw and Chet Falziek: The writers of Portal and Portal 2. I love video games as much as I love comedy, and the Portal games were the first games I’d ever played that did comedy in a consistently non-embarrassing way. Also, writers who write video games. That sounds magical.

Nick Cave: This guy. This fucking guy. He’s fronted three incredible bands (The Birthday Party, The Bad Seeds, and Grinderman). He’s a poet. He’s a novelist. He’s a screenwriter. He’s a snazzy dresser. He can pull off a mustache. He can pull off your mustache. He could probably beat Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! in one try the first time he ever played it. If I could do one thing as well as he does everything, I’d be happy. (Well, maybe slightly less unsatisfied. Slightly.)

The Open Mic Video Series: JOSH POTTER

In 2013, Buffalo Comedy teamed up with Hate This Films to create a series of mini-docs highlighting the various people that make up the Buffalo comedy scene. We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.

You can catch Potter tonight at Mr Goodbar, whose second floor will transform into the best little underground comedy club this side of town. Joining him will be Rochester’s Dewey Lovett, LaughStaff’s Josh Womack, Buffalo and Rochester’s Funniest Person finalist Mark Walton, and special guest, musician Keith Buckley trying his hand at some yucks. Should be fun, doods! 8:30 p.m., TONIGHT, Goodbar 2nd Fl, 1110 Elmwood Ave., $10.

Age: 27

Location: Buffalo, NY (Allentown)

How many years doing comedy and where: I’ve been performing comedy on the radio, writing and voicing sketches, for 10 years. I started writing for stand-up and getting on stage in 2007. I did one open mic and one booked show and was terrible. So terrible that I puked in an alley after bombing on stage and didn’t get back up for an entire year. In 2008, I lost my virginity and started getting on stage multiple times a week (I fully believe the two are related.)

A typical day for you is:
– Waking up at an ungodly time. Working and contributing to The Shredd & Ragan Morning Show on 103.3 The Edge 5 days a week.
– Napping while everyone else eats lunch
– Getting on stage anywhere I can
– Sleep a couple hours
– Repeat

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years: I need to get to NYC. That’s my main focus. Hopefully I can achieve that sooner than later.

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it: There are so many terrible, terrible stories… Alas, I am attempting this whole “positivity” thing lately, so I will tell a story about something GOOD happening! With the opening of Helium Comedy Club, has come opportunity and the ability to grow leaps and bounds. Working with headliners of such high caliber has taught me a lot these last few months. Aside from all of the learning, there have also been some UNBELIEVABLY fun times.

The entire weekend working with Todd Glass was a blast… I’m pretty certain he’s the only headliner that wanted to come hang out at my apartment. He came over after the show on Thursday night and hung out with a group of us, even putting us in the intro of his podcast for that week. We smoked weed and he ordered about 1,000 pizzas for the whole party. Such a nice dude, with amazing energy… Just someone you want to be around all of the time.

On Friday night, Todd wanted to hang some more but on a more “low key” level so he invited me, the Feature (Mark Debonis) and Buffalo comics Lucas Gardner and Colin Burgess to hang out at his hotel. Even though the group was smaller it was more of the same (tons of weed, even more pizza). This time, however, we might have gone too hard for Todd because within a couple of hours he was sitting in a ball on a chair with his head down, not saying a word… After 20 minutes of deliberating on what action should be taken, we all just decided it’d be best to leave the room and let him sort it out himself. The whole next day we were paranoid that we had killed The Great Todd Glass and he wouldn’t make it to the shows that night. Luckily he was fine, and he made us feel even better by saying he would have taken the same action, and left the room. That night, more pizza/weed. Sorry if this is too long, but it was the greatest weekend of my life…

Influences in art or life: My stand-up and “art” influences are varied. David Spade, Chris Elliot, Robert Smigel and a few others have touched me in a way that was inspirational… As far as life goes, my parents have inspired me by just existing… I look back on my childhood and knowing now the types of jobs my parents had, how much they most likely made, it’s amazing to me that I had a childhood where I got pretty much everything I asked for. I don’t know how they did it, but it amazes me as an adult. I have to give a shout to my comedy brothers and sisters here in Buffalo and elsewhere… Comedy has brought so many friends into my life, and they keep me motivated to take shit to the next level all the time. Thank you to: Matt Wayne, Matt Bergman, Kristen Becker, Dan Fisher, Rick Matthews, Mark Walton, Lucas Gardner, Brian Herberger and Shaun Murphy.

The Final Goo House Show…FOREVER!!! (for now [!?])

1000020_521891791215198_1151150454_n

Our favorite little comedy collective is disbanding (temporarily, we hope!!!), with member Colin Burgess moving to New York City and several other folks going back to university this fall; however, you can catch them at least one more time as a full group TONIGHT at the place it all began: THE Goo House. They are pulling out all the stops and inviting several friends to come play; this is one of those remember-for-years kinda comedy nights, we assure you.

TONIGHT: Goo House, 46 Sager Dr., Rochester, NY, 7:30 p.m., suggested donation: $5, BYOB probably?

The Open Mic Video Series: TYRONE MACLIN

In 2013, Buffalo Comedy teamed up with Hate This Films to create a series of mini-docs highlighting the various people that make up the Buffalo comedy scene. We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.

This week’s feature is Tyrone Maclin. Tyrone is one of the originating Buffalo comedians who first set the underground scene on fire several years ago and who can now be seen regularly at Helium Comedy Club. Tyrone kept it short and sweet for us this week. Get you some pearls, ladiez!

How many years doing comedy and where: I’ve been doing comedy as a comedian 6 years. I’ve been a funny guy my whole life. You can catch me doing my act at the local club or this new thing I call Glory Hole Comedy. At any random bathroom stall. Just stick the microphone through the hole…at least I hope that was a mic.

A typical day for you is…: My day has to end with some sort of gig or open mic or I get antsy.

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years: I don’t plan ahead too much but, I know 1 thing. I will be pursuing more gigs outside of the Rust Belt region.

Well, I absolutely live for comedy now. Here’s how it goes in my chain of things…. COMEDY/DAUGHTER that I hope to turn into a comedian…………..everything else in the universe. My daughter is 2, BTW. She has a loose 5 but we’ll work on it.

Influences in art or in life? I would LOVE to just converse about my influences for a while. There is so many from Ellen DeGeneres to Sam Kinison. From Nas to Rod Stewart. Entertainment is my favorite thing about America…..Before I get way too cheesy, I’m out.

The Open Mic Video Series: BRIAN HERBERGER

In 2013, Buffalo Comedy teamed up with Hate This Films to create a series of mini-docs highlighting the various people that make up the Buffalo comedy scene. We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.

This week’s feature is Brian Herberger, whose video profile is one of our most popular ones so far — Brian teaches junior high in Buffalo, NY, and his students recently found the video. The comments are totes adorb, omg! People of New Jersey can catch Brian all this weekend at the Cape May Comedy Festival, and the first Thursday of every month at Speakeasy, a stand-up showcase in the back on Allen St. Hardware in Buffalo, NY.

Age: 30

Location: Buffalo, NY

How many years doing comedy and where: My first time on stage was November, 2001, the night before Thanksgiving at The Comix Café in Tonawanda, NY. After that I would drive to Rochester every Tuesday for open mic since there were none in Buffalo. I got some emcee work here and there, met a lot of great people, and then took some time off when I was in Grad School getting my Master’s in Education. The open mic at Nietzsche’s was a big part of the resurgence of comedy in Buffalo after Comix closed. It gave me a local venue to work out new material. The past two to three years I have been getting on stage as much as possible.

A typical day for you is…: I wake up far too early in my Allen St. apartment. Depending on how my Sleep Apnea went for the night, I either make coffee or just get dressed quickly with my eyes closed. I put on a blue shirt and get into my blue car and drive to work. I teach at a middle school in the ‘burbs. If it’s a Saturday, then I try to talk friends of mine into going out to lunch. Or if it’s a Sunday, I try to talk them into brunch, as long as the Bills aren’t playing. At night, I tell jokes.

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years: I am branching off into some new clubs and new parts of the country, which is very exciting. I want to feature at as many new rooms as possible and meet as many comics as I can in the next couple years. Perhaps in the next five years or so, there will come a time where I might have to give up my day job in order to travel and do comedy full-time. That would be a good conflict to have.

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it: When Helium first opened in Buffalo, I was able to feature one of the shows opening weekend with Rachel Feinstein. I was excited because not only was I able to be part of something that was a huge weekend for the city of Buffalo, but I worked with Rachel before and I knew we would have a great time working together. The afternoon of the show, Rachel was contacted by a surprising source: Jenna Jameson’s agent. Apparently Jenna was in town and was, in her own words, “Rachel’s biggest fan!” Rachel called me, somewhat in disbelief, with the news that Jenna would be going to the show that night, our show. Now this was a very exciting evening to begin with, we had been anticipating the opening of Helium for weeks, so I invited everyone I knew to come out and share the moment. Many of my loved ones were there, including my mom. Backstage, Rachel asked me to acknowledge Jenna during my set (a request from the former porn star that Rachel understandably did not want to have to work into her own act). I said, sure.

About 15 minutes into my set, I decided to make the announcement that the one and only Jenna Jameson was among us in the audience. Some were elated, some were confused, and some just didn’t believe me. Either way, most of the audience made noise and applauded to welcome our unexpected guest. I then mentioned that my mother was in the audience as well, which got a brief chuckle, and was a perfect segue into some material about my family. I had fulfilled Jenna’s request, and was ready to move on with the show. There was only one problem though — my mother wasn’t. As I started my next joke, a voice came out of the back of the room. “Bri,” it sounded like. But I assured myself that I must be hearing things. “Bri,” I thought I heard again, and this time made a conscious decision to ignore it. Maybe if twice didn’t work, the voice would just give up. Until it shouted out a third time, “Bri,” and I had no choice. “Yeah?” I responded in an annoyed tone. To which the voice replied, “Jenna sucks!” It was my mother, and she was nearly murdered by a former porn star in the middle of the show.

Influences in art or in life? I always liked watching comedy on TV when I was younger. My first job in a comedy club was as a back bartender, where I watched almost every show for a year, five or six a week in most cases, before I ever attempted my own shot at the microphone. Some comics who I listened to when I first started out are Brian Regan, Jim Brewer, Steve Martin, Jeff Foxworthy, Jim Gaffigan, George Carlin, Bill Burr, Steven Wright, Mitch Hedberg, Woody Allen, and Dave Attell.

Accolades and plugs: I am very excited to be performing at the Cape May Comedy Festival [in Marmora, NJ] at the end of July. I was picked out of hundreds of comics from across the country. The final 96 of us will be performing/competing from July 26-28. The winner will get $5,000 and a whole bunch of guaranteed shows. It will also be a great opportunity to meet some new people. My first show of the weekend is at 1 p.m. on Friday the 26th.

I’m also very proud of my newest publication, “Stand-Up Poetry,” which is a compilation of funny ideas I had that grew into poems more before they became jokes. I sell the books after shows, or fans can purchase a copy for $5 by e-mailing me (BrianHerberger@gmail.com).

I run the monthly Speakeasy Comedy Series at Allen St. Hardware. We have a very cool venue and have featured some of the best local comics for about 6 months now. The Speakeasy show is usually the first Thursday of the month. I’m a regular at The Comedy Club in Webster, NY, a beautiful club that brings in great talent. I recently featured for the first time at The Comedy Works in Albany with Ross Bennett. So far in my career, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Nick DiPaolo, Rich Vos, Alonzo Bodden, Mitch Fatel, Bobby Slayton, Rachel Feinstein and more. Look for me at Helium or any other shows around Western New York. I always post upcoming shows on Twitter: @BrianHerberger

We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.


This week’s feature is Dan Fisher, who you can find hilariously taking down @TodayShow on the Twitter-machine every morning. Dan is a regular around the Buffalo comedy circuit; follow him to get all the latest show dates and scathing Kathie Lee commentary.

Age:  27

Location:  Buffalo

How many years doing comedy and where: The first time I ever did stand-up was in June 2006.  I was 20 years old, and I had been thinking about doing it every single day since I was about 12, but couldn’t get the courage to do it.  That’s what happens when you’re a pussy.  Then I found out about the open mic at the now gone Comix Cafe in Rochester, gathered my 5 minutes of jokes about drinking and genitalia, and drove out there.  I thought I was going to throw up the whole time.  I went 18th of about 34 open micers.  I did ok, but (holy shit this is way too long of an answer) it didn’t go as well as I imagined. It scared me off enough that I didn’t do it again until August 2007 at Kristen Becker’s open mic at Nietzsche’s.  I haven’t stopped since.  Sorry my answer was so long.  I just want people to know the whole story for some reason.

A typical day for you is…: Waking up, sitting on the side of my bed with my head in my hands summoning the emotional wherewithal to start my day.  Then I scream at myself in the mirror for 45 minutes, take a multivitamin and leave my house.  I try to do some writing every day because if I don’t, I feel like I wasted my time.  They’re not all winners, but the more you write, the more potential material you have obviously, plus it might help you re-envision some of your older jokes. Plus it feels good to write on paper with a pen, it’s like traveling back to older times.  No way does anyone give a shit about me enough to do all of this reading when they could be looking at porn.

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years: As my friend Matt Wayne says, “Just trying to get funnier.”  I would like to book more shows, add many more strong jokes, have sex with Margaery Tyrell, and move to New York.  I definitely need to do some festivals.  They seem like a blast.  I would really like to pay my bills with comedy.  It’s not easy, but that’s my ultimate goal.  It might have to be more in the 5-7 year range, but the sooner the better.  Have you ever had a job before?  It’s the worst.

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it: The best story of great vs. terrible happened in January 2012.  Matt Bergman asked me to come with him to perform at the US Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut.  I went, Jamie Lissow headlined.  The room was full of 300 young cadets–all of whom were eager for entertainment–so we all had really fun sets.  Then we watched comedy in the hotel and drank wine.  By “watched comedy” I mean we watched “Eat, Pray, Love” and cried.  It was super fun.  The next day Jamie had a show somewhere else, so Matt and I drove to Greenwich, New York and did a show.  250 people, they all LOVED the emcee, then I went up.  I was supposed to do 30 minutes.  I got no laughs, finished at 8 minutes, and laid on the floor of a side room wishing I was dead.  It was awesome.  I really learned a lot about preparation and crowds that night.  To this day I’m not sure how I could have done anything different up there to make the crowd hate me less.  It just so happened that a lot of people who didn’t like me were all in the same room, and it made for a terrible set.  It was very strange to go from having a very upliftingly fun set on Friday and a soul-crushingly awful set Saturday with largely the same material.  It just reinforced to me that stand-up comedy is a fucking weird thing sometimes.

Influences in art or in life?: When I started stand-up I really wanted [Buffalo[ comics like Matt Bergman, Kevin Carlin, Kristen Becker, Shaun Murphy, Matt Wayne, Mark Walton, and Kate Anderson to like me.  By now I think maybe three of them actually do.  Since that first year I’ve added Rick Matthews, Josh Potter, Greg Bauch, Brian Herberger, and my cousin Andrew Short to the list of comics I consider my friends whether they fucking like it or not.  I love doing shows with all of them.  It’s funny how doing stand-up with like-minded people really makes you think, “We’re all serious about this.”  Some people think other comics are “competition” but really having people who are funny and talented going through the same shit as you, the same awful shows, the same amazing shows, there’s really nothing like it, and it bonds you and them.  Of course you want to be the funniest you can be on every show, but when you and your buds have a show, it’s always a good feeling to sit down with them and hang out.

Andrew lives in New York and is one of the funniest people I know and he’s been making some serious headway out there.  He’s younger than me but I want to be like him when I grow up.  My brother Pat is also hilarious, and while he isn’t a comic he has this bizarre sense of humor.  My parents are obnoxiously supportive of me so I can’t do that cliche comedy joke, “I do stand-up so my parents hate me,” fortunately.

And also early on one of the guys who really encouraged me was Chico Scioli.  He was a grizzled veteran of stand-up in Buffalo, and one of the first comics to encourage me to keep getting on stage and writing jokes.

Accolades and plugs: I performed on the Comedy Central comics to watch local showcase here in Buffalo, and I reached the finals of the Buffalo Laugh-Off which I would have won if Rick Matthews wasn’t such a fuck face, I’ve worked with comics like Godfrey, Dov Davidoff, Kevin Brennan, Judah Friedlander, Doug Stanhope, Rory Scovel, and Jamie Lissow.  OH! Readers of TrendingBuffalo.com voted me “Best Use of Social Media by an artist/comedian/musician” which is pretty cool if you’re into that sort of thing.  And that’s it, ok bye.

The Open Mic Video Series: LOUIE GEE

We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.

This week’s feature is Louie Gee, co-founder of the Buffalo Laugh-Off and Mayhem Comedy. Louie will be emceeing for Robert Kelly this Friday and Saturday at Helium Comedy Club, 30 Mississippi St., 8 and 10:30 p.m. Tickets can be procured swiftly here.

Age: 29

Location: Buffalo

How many years doing comedy and where: 2 and a half years mostly here in Buffalo.

A typical day for you is…: Work. Comedy is one of four jobs for me. I try to fit in a few vodka teas and something fried to eat in between three hour naps.

Where do you see yourself in 1-3 years?: Hopefully at least on the road part-time. That compels me more than anything. Mostly because of the lack of intimacy one night stands bring to the table.

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it: I once had a girl I had been on a few dates with walk out halfway through my set. I don’t think she enjoyed my joke about me having random sex. That b!t*h is in the minority. That joke is hilarious. She didn’t even stick around for my joke about cancer. Girls are silly.

Influences in art or in life?: Myself. I realize how cocky that sounds. But I didn’t have an artistic member in my family or anything. I just started drinking a lot and drunk people around me said I was funny. Then I was all like, “I’m gonna do stand-up”. And then I sucked at it. And then I was all like, ” I’m not gonna suck at this anymore.” And now I’m only kinda sucky at it. I shouldn’t have smoked weed before answering these questions. I hate that answer. I should have just said Carrot Top. That dude is pretty cool.

Accolades and plugs: I’ve opened up for Kevin Brennan. I co-own Mayhem Comedy which put together the Buffalo Laugh-Off. I’ve hugged Rick Matthews a whole bunch. I’m emceeing for Robert Kelly July 5th and 6th at Helium Comedy Club.

The Open Mic Video Series: BUFFALO SKETCH COMEDY

In 2013, Buffalo Comedy teamed up with Hate This Films to create a series of mini-docs highlighting the various people that make up the Buffalo comedy scene. We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.


This week’s feature is the sketch group Buffalo Sketch Comedy. You can catch the guys on the YouTubes and Chris Scherr in Idle Entertainment’s entry in the 48 Hour Film Festival 2013 screening at the Market Arcade Film and Arts Centre, 639 Main St., this Thursday, June 27, at 7 p.m. Incidentally, Hate This Films will also be a part of this screening group. Tickets are only $10 for what promises to be an astounding night of local filmmaking.

Age: 5 yrs old.

Location: On the toilet.

How many years doing comedy and where: Combining our assorted experiences together — we’re about that of a ‘tween. Old enough to know gangster rap, but far too young to appreciate it. We’ve been going steady at the Buffalo ComedySportz Arena in Amherst, but used to be monthly at Merge when we first started. We’ve also been seen in various locales such as Nietzsche’s, The Rivoli (Canada), Mr. Goodbar, etc.

A typical day for you is…: Ruining the Internet.

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years: More live shows, bigger presence online, possibly sketch TV show/webisodes — Who knows? At least get paid to write comedy!

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it: While performing a popular skit of ours, we got a huge laugh and applause break at a point that we planned on. What we didn’t plan was the tech guy cutting the scene early and going to black right after that. One of the cast members shouted at the top of his lungs, “NO!” out of desperation. But we quickly calmed him down and realized that we found our new ending. Comedy, like life, is always a learning curve. You’ll never fully have it figured out.

A few years ago the cast, garbed in red coats and powdered wigs, attended the Tea Party rally at the waterfront posing as the British army circa Revolutionary War. We were filming a bit called “Teava La Revolution.” Not knowing what to expect, we purposely took no political sides and simply went to “Save the tea!” One of our more successful outings — the head of operations for the rally asked us to join them in Albany and had we given them enough notice would’ve let us do our shtick in front of the masses. Taken totally off guard by the support I, sadly, had to notify him, “Dude that’s awesome. But I’m already an hour late for my shift at the Olive Garden.”

To this day I — we — regret not taking the chance. Always be ready for the next level and DON’T be fearful of ANY opportunity!

Influences in art or in life?: SNL, MadTV, Kids in the Hall, Stella, UCB, Second City, and an iPod shuffle too small to fit a list of comedians ranging from Steve Allen and Bob Newhart to Steve Carell and Kevin Hart.

Accolades and plugs: We’ve been a part of the Infringement Festival and have roasted former Bill Steve Tasker at the WGR550 Whiney Awards Ceremony. We are grateful to have worked with some of the best and brightest Buffalo has to offer. Stand-ups, improv comedians, and some extremely talented actors have all contributed greatly to our growth not only as a brand but also as comedians.

The Open Mic Video Series: MARK CIEMCIOCH

In 2013, Buffalo Comedy teamed up with Hate This Films to create a series of mini-docs highlighting the various people that make up the Buffalo comedy scene. We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.

This week’s feature is Mark Ciemcioch, stand-up comedian and member of the comedy ensemble, the Dykes of Hazard.

Age: 37

Location: Buffalo, NY

How many years doing comedy and where: 5 years, mostly sketch with the Dykes of Hazard (as the straight guy) down at Ani DiFranco’s Babeville but some stand-up at the usual Buffalo haunts.

A typical day for you is…: My wife and I have a 1-year-old, so it usually revolves around her.  The baby gets up between 5-6 a.m., so we spend an hour or two watching Super Why, her favorite show. Then I take her to day care and head off to my day job, where I’ll spend the next 7 hours trying to get the theme song to Super Why out of my head.  I use the last hour of mental clarity to get some work done, then go home, where we’ll watch some more Super Why.

When the baby goes to sleep, I get out of the house a few times a week, either chasing a freelance writing assignment or doing comedy.  If it’s the latter, I spend most of my act singing the lyrics to Super Why.

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years: Currently wrapping up the final draft of a book about weird, funny and unique Western New York history called “Buffalo Bizarre” (in stores this fall!), book some tour gigs with the DOH ladies and hone my stand-up into a lean, mean, mumbling machine, like a young Sylvester Stallone.  Once all that is complete, I will write and direct my first Hollywood blockbuster, Super Why.

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it: A few years back, Kristen Becker and I drove up to do a show in Milton, Ont., which is kinda like the Alden of Toronto.  It’s in the middle of nowhere, and the main way to get there is to take Canada’s dreaded 407 highway, which charges a toll of a buck a mile.

The show was going OK, but a couple of guys who wandered in from the back room started heckling the comics.  They also happened to be two skinhead members of the Hells Angels.

Host Jason Blanchard went up to address the hecklers.  Surprisingly, the Hells Angels guys did not go back to their previous activity of tea and crumpets, instead deciding to rush the stage.  In the time it took me to have the thought, “Hey, should I do something?” Jason tossed one of the guys off the stage and drops a knee on the other, telling the loser, “I’m ex-Airborne, bitch!”

The hecklers were kicked out, the show petered out (although Kristen, not afraid of any crowd, did her set) and Jason decided to wrap things up early.  There were mumblings that the Hells Angels guys went to get their friends, so Jason left.

Now, when you’re in the middle of nowhere in a foreign country and you hear the Hells Angels are on their way back, the wise move is to leave.  Kristen and I have another drink.

One of the booted Hells Angels guys returns with just his girlfriend and, seeing we’re the only two comics around who had nothing to do with his asskicking, picks a fight with us.  I’m the kinda of guy who fights when he has to, but considering the circumstances (skinhead Hells Angel; middle of nowhere; foreign country; our getaway vehicle is a Prius), I wouldn’t mind getting out of there with a curt, “Good day, sir!” if I can.

Remember when I said Kristen Becker is not afraid of any crowd?  You can just imagine her reaction when what essentially looks like a giant circumcised penis starts yelling in her face.  She starts getting into it with both the guy and the girl, while I survey the area for potential weapons and exit points.

After a few minutes of this guy telling us Americans that our country is filled with intolerance and hate, which is something coming from a guy with a tattoo of a swastika, the continued sharing of cigarettes and beers between everybody seems to broker a mutual understanding between potential Canadian Nazi and lesbian.

Of this event, I learned nothing about my comedy career, but if Andrew Cuomo really wants to settle this Peace Bridge business, maybe stop by the Duty Free for cheap alcohol and smokes.

Influences in art or in life?: This sounds pretentious, but I’m pretty inspired by so much art and entertainment, be it comedy, film, TV, music, comics and books.  There’s now so much good stuff out there that there is no excuse to endure the bad entertainments.  I’m such a pop culture consumer that it’s a good thing I have a family and job, because otherwise I’m sure the neighbors would find my dead body on the coach, midway through a Netflix Star Trek marathon.

Accolades and plugs: Graduated from the Second City writing program; worked with local favorites like Becker, Matt Bergman, Greg Bauch and Shaun Murphy; performed at a couple Pride events; co-author of “Buffalo Bizarre” (in stores this fall!); champion of Jeopardy’s special “Super Why” week.

Eric Lingenfelter

Hi. I'm Eric Lingenfelter. I love jokes. I've loved jokes for my whole life, even back when I was too young to really "get" them. Since 2009, I've been writing and telling my own jokes. I've gotten such rave reviews as "What the hell is going on?" from some cosplayer girl at UB Con, and "What the fuck is wrong with that guy?" from some drunk guy in the back of the room at Nietzsche's, and "HAHAHA!" from receptive audiences all over the ding dang place! If I don't make you laugh, I'm sorry. If I do make you laugh, I'm sorry. Visit my website at ericlingenfelter.tumblr.com for more good stuff.

The Open Mic Video Series: TIM JOYCE

In 2013, Buffalo Comedy teamed up with Hate This Films to create a series of mini-docs highlighting the various people that make up the Buffalo comedy scene. We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.


This week’s feature is Tim Joyce, a veritable veteran in the stand-up comedy world. After spending 25 years in Chicago, Tim recently came back to his beloved hometown of Buffalo, much to the sheer joy of the burgeoning comedy community here and the audiences that love it.

Age: 52

Location: Buffalo, New York

How many years doing comedy and where: 26 years as a comic with appearances in 42 states, Canada, and Ireland.

A typical day for you is…: During the school year, since I teach in the Theatre Department at Buffalo State, I usually have three classes to teach MWF along with working privately with students on audition monologues, etc. On so-called “off” days I usually work on writing, and also sending out sending out emails to clubs and bookers. I am in the process of finishing the final edit of an Intro to Theatre textbook that will be used at Buffalo State and marketed nationally by Cognella Publishing.

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years: I want to continue to blend stage acting locally with selected road gigs I enjoy. I have several plays that I wrote that were professionally produced in Chicago and Arizona, and I really want to get one or two of them produced here. I also want to do several things with comedy specifically: Set up a consortium of local talent who will work together to create paying venues nearby, put together a writers’ group/coaching class for newer comics, and personally develop material that I find more interesting artistically for which I would set up “theme” shows locally (such as a “smart material only” show that would require the comics perform the intelligent bits they avoid doing to mainstream audiences.)

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it: The greatest thing has been seeing so much of the country, especially remote places like Western North Dakota, where, during an off day I visited Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I went hiking, having read that the park has wild bison, horses, deer, and elk. In the late summer heat I went hiking, and saw beautiful Red Rock badlands, but no animals. Then I turned a corner of a path and there were about 20 bison. I know they can run 35 MPH, and that they occasionally panic and trample a human to death. So I climbed up on a huge boulder and sat. Soon I was surrounded by many more bison, a few deer, and then three horses wandered up. Sitting on that rock in that gorgeous place I felt connected to eternity. Then my cell phone rang. It was my wife Connie asking, “what are you doing?” I said, “you simply wouldn’t believe it.” Back at the hotel…I explained the whole event.

Terrible stories? Yeah. Got a bunch. Had a Klansman wait in his pickup truck with a shotgun in his lap until dawn in Elkhart, Indiana. (The idiot didn’t realize the gig was in the same hotel I was staying.) Had a rodeo cowboy rush the stage in Hibbing, Minnesota and opened a huge gash in his jaw with the mike stand. Got sucker-punched in the eye on my 39th birthday in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin by a 22-year-old Marine who thought I was hitting on his girlfriend. Was signed by a major LA management company in fall of 1999, but before I could get there for pilot season the owner of the agency died on the operating table, was revived, and closed the agency as I was driving to the coast.

Influences in art or in life?: The Beatles. The Marx Brothers. Springsteen. Shakespeare. James Joyce. Thomas Pynchon. Dylan. Jonathan Winters. The Roches. Thich Nhat Hanh.

Accolades and plugs: Numerous television credits including ABC and Comedy Central as well as many regional comedy television shows along with ComedyTimeTV.com from the Pasadena Ice House and Sirius Radio. I was a ghost writer and occasional improv set guest at The Second City in Chicago where I got to perform with Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Rachel Dratch, and George Wendt. I’ve worked in stand-up shows with Ray Romano, Bobcat Goldthwait, Richard Lewis, Jake Johannsen, Carl LaBove, Craig Robinson, and Lewis Black.

The Open Mic Video Series: MEGHAN DEPONCEAU

In 2013, Buffalo Comedy teamed up with Hate This Films to create a series of mini-docs highlighting the various people that make up the Buffalo comedy scene. We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.

This week’s feature is Meghan DePonceau, who will produce and host tonight’s Cocktail Lounge Comedy Night showcase at Butterwood Sweet & Savory in the Hotel Lafayette, 391 Washington St.. 9 p.m., $10, includes one well drink, house glass of wine, or beer. Order Hugo’s Last Pie for dinner and effusively thank us later.

Age: 22

Location: At the corner of begging homeless guy and drunken whining hipster, Allentown. It is where Buffalo’s artists, gays and alcoholics all get along.

How many years doing comedy and where: 7 and a half months, so .625 years.

A typical day for you is: Wake up with a hungry soulless ginger cat on my face. Smash the snooze button six times, until I am already late for work when I finally roll out of bed. Kick the hung-over co-workers and friends off my crash couch. Find a uniform off the floor, preferably the one least covered in cat hair and ignominy. Hop a city bus, where obviously nobody is shaking, missing most of their teeth or talking to themselves. Arrive to work excuseless, have a “Breakfast of Champions” (one part franks hot sauce, one part lemon juice, one part water), so I can wake up. Serve tables with a smile and pleasant disposition, to people who don’t know what they want, but damn well want the best of whatever it is. Then go release all the built up tension from a day’s work by telling stories of people’s infinite stupidity at open mics.

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years: Get more free beers and high fives.

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it: I finished the night off at an open mic at Goodbar a little over a month ago, and a thoroughly inebriated female heckled the whole show. She through off a lot of new comics working on fresh jokes, and was still going drunk and strong by the time I got up. I ignored her and did a set, then called her out and brought her up on stage. I had her attempt jokes, arm wrestled her, sang her Bette Midler just to keep her on stage long enough to insult her more. Everyone thought she was going to hit me but by the end (right before she fell off stage) she apologized to all the comics. Bitches be crazy.

Influences in art or in life?: I was raised on Seinfeld. The TV show answered all the questions I should have asked my parents. Richard Brautigan’s work inspired a lot of my style of humor, since he really perfected the darkest side of silly.  There are three actively touring comedic acts including my favorite comedian Doug Stanhope.  Amy Schumer, she makes herself the subject of her vulgar jokes, pushing boundaries on the murky issues. Garfunkel and Oates, a musical comedy duo, that doesn’t hold back but also sings with intelligence and well-tailored vernacular. They don’t dumb down or censor their work.

Accolades (festivals, worked withs) and plugs: Bragging time? I have a very impressive collection of empty single malt aged scotch bottles. Check any Pac-Man machine in this city. That is me with the high score. I hold the current Buffalo State record for fastest chugging of Das Boot (four beers), 19 seconds. As far as comedy is concerned, I feel like a winner just because of all the amazing people I have met because of it, no real trophies though. This city needs more comedy trophies.

The Open Mic Video Series: BRIAN BRADY

In 2013, Buffalo Comedy teamed up with Hate This Films to create a series of mini-docs highlighting the various people that make up the Buffalo comedy scene. We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.

This week’s feature is Brian Brady, producer at Green Gorilla Comedy.

Age: 41

Location:  Earth. WNY.

How many years doing comedy and where: 10 years, locally. Started with a workshop at Comix Cafe in 2004, led to getting hired there. Since that club closed, performances mostly at bars, and most recently booked as a headliner at pharmacy school events.

A typical day for you is…: Dogs jump on face. Walk dogs. Work (pharmacy). Home to do some artwork, try to write jokes if so inspired!! (see work). Unwind with food, perhaps some Xbox time. Sleep. Repeat.

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years:  #1 Find a new room to host my Green Gorilla Comedy showcase. #2 Get to more mics. #3 With some work ( and luck?) get onstage at our gorgeous new comedy club!

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it:  A crazy situation occurred at a show I did which was both great and terrible.  A great deal of my jokes poke fun at the outlandish scenarios that can play out at the pharmacy counter (the human element has you always saying, “you never know!”). I was telling a joke loosely based on a real life interaction when a woman shouted out from the crowd, “HEY! YOU’RE MY DRUGGIST!” The thing is, I can’t really acknowledge patients outside work, for confidentiality/HIPAA reasons, so I just said, “do I know you?”, she piped down, and the set went on. So word got back to my employer and they sent me a letter outlining how much trouble I could get in if I say anything about where I work. That letter inspired me to write a joke where I do sound-alikes and words in Spanish which reveal (without saying) a little bit about what I do and where.  The bit kills, gets the set started with a bang, and led to me getting booked as a headliner twice last year at our local pharmacy schools!

Influences in art or in life?:  My comedic inspiration? People. Wacky people who have no filter? Or don’t realize they’re slightly to the left of normal, or acceptable.

Accolades (festivals, worked withs) and plugs:  My comedy career has remained a local flavor. I am proud to say I have worked with, and come to know as friends, a great number of the comics who call Buffalo their home.

(plug)  Green Gorilla Comedy is a side project/production company I started. We are currently looking for a new bar/banquet/restaurant to host a monthly show with…. details at www.greengorillacomedy.com.

The Open Mic Video Series: RICK MATTHEWS

In 2013, Buffalo Comedy teamed up with Hate This Films to create a series of mini-docs highlighting the various people that make up the Buffalo comedy scene. We’ll be rolling out these videos little by little over the next several months. We’re extremely excited about this new partnership with the incredible crew at Hate This.

This week’s feature is Rick Matthews, the winner of the 2012 Buffalo Laugh-Off. He will be headlining Lake Effect Comedy‘s monthly showcase at the Adam’s Mark Hotel Friday night.

Age: 34 years old

Location: I am on my couch now. It’s a new couch. It’s nice. I got a really good deal on it when I bought it. It’s brown. It’s also soft. I hope it lasts a long time. I hate buying furniture. Really bad actually. The salesmen always bother you, following you around and stuff. Oh wait, did you mean Buffalo? I’m from Buffalo.

How many years doing comedy and where: I started doing comedy in Buffalo, first time I got on stage was at Nietzsche’s. That was 5 years ago. I now run the room on Tuesday nights at Nietzsche’s.

A typical day for you is…: Same as anyone else really. I wake up, and usually have to fight off 2-3 mutant tigers. Simple stuff. Get my daughter ready and on the bus, throw some food into my gullet, and then off to my day of work. I am an old-timey newsboy, which means a whole lot of yelling “Extry Extry, Read all About it. IRS Goes After Teaparty!” It’s a dying job. Robots, the Internet, and Mexicans are forcing us out. Somewhere in this day I have to find time to write. Which is just the hard part really.

Your comedy plans in the next 1-3 years: I have a show June 26th, 2015. I am really excited about it. I am doing 15 minutes featuring for a guy that hasn’t started yet, but he is gonna be killer. In all seriousness, this is a difficult question. If I seem too ambitious, the other comics will think I am being a jerk. If I sell myself short, I am selling myself short. So realistically, I would like to continue to feature for Helium and other clubs in the next few years. Getting accepted to a festival has become an obsession of mine, because it is one of the walls I haven’t climbed over yet. Finding the perfect tape is an ongoing issue. Getting someone to watch it is kind of a problem too.

An anecdote from your comedy life illustrating something great or terrible that happened during comedy or because of it: When I first started out, maybe five months in, a car full of us went to go to one of the random Liberto open mics in Rochester, NY. Now, they are called Liberto mics because they are run by a nice guy named Dan Liberto. And they were always in a different place. Well, this one had myself, Tyrone Maclin, Mark Walton, Kevin Carlin, and Chet Wild all riding out. When we get there, we discover the stage is actually a wrestling ring, complete with ropes, turnbuckles, the whole 9. And no crowd but other comics to watch. One thing led to another, and we convinced one of us to rip their shirt off a-la Hulk Hogan mid-set. Funny thing is, the only other shirt he had was a hockey jersey. Which then chaffed his nipples after the show. Which means pure hilarity. Sorry Chet’s nipples. You are still missed.

Influences in art or in life?: I get my cynicism from Kurt Vonnegut. He influences my way of looking sideways at everything and anything. Him and Hunter S. Thompson. Comedy-wise, I am influenced by no man. Or woman. Except my dad. He worked really hard in his life, sometimes working as many as three jobs. That influenced me to never want to work that hard. So I don’t. I just got into comedy instead. Way less work. More hanging out.

Accolades (festivals, worked withs) and plugs: I just said I never got into festivals. Why do you guys gotta bring up old stuff. Seems rude. I have, however, worked with some people that I was a fan of before I started doing comedy, and these are the moments I hold on to. I’ve worked with Doug Stanhope a few times, and to me, this is the top tier of my personal favorites. Brian Posehn, Judah Friedlander, Rich Vos, Joe DeRosa, and Erik Griffin are all names I am proud to have worked with.

9 p.m., Friday, May 24, Adam’s Mark Hotel, 120 Church St., $9. Also featured will be local comedians Jason Pomietlasz, Adam Hernandez, Jimi Pidd, Tyrone Maclin, and Travis Worth, with special guest John Little.
