Tony P’s ’30 Second Comedy Minute': Mark Saldanha [AUDIO]
It's Funny Friday which means we have another edition of Tony P's '30 Second Comedy Minute', where we only feature comedians from the great city of Buffalo...unless a major comedic celebrity dies then we will occasionally throw them a bone as well.
Today's comedian is Buffalo's own Mark Saldanha. Mark started doing comedy at 18 and hasn't looked back since. He has headlined clubs and colleges in 40 states, performed at the coveted Just For Laughs comedy festival, advanced on Last Comic Standing, and is on a Netflix special.
I met and worked with Mark briefly when we were both living in Las Vegas, and now that we are both back in the Queen City we perform together all of the time. He has played everywhere in town including Helium Comedy Club and Rob's Comedy Playhouse. He has worked with many heavy hitters in the industry including his first major spot opening for Jon Stewart.
If you missed Mark's joke on the show today you can hear it again here:
If you get a chance to see Mark live you will not regret it. If you want to follow Mark you can on Twitter @indiancomic.
