On Tony P's 30 Second Comedy Minute we only feature local comics born and raised in Western New York.  That doesn't necessarily mean that they still live in the area, but they will always call Buffalo home.


Today's featured comedian hails from Gowanda, NY, but now lays his head in Los Angeles.  Chet Wild helped to reshape the Buffalo comedy scene before heading out west, and still makes it back into town on occasion to tell jokes.  He has performed stand-up on HULU (West Coast Comedy), FOX (Laughs), and in countless comedy clubs across the country.  See where he'll be next at www.ChetWild.com and follow him on twitter @ChetWild.
