Tony P’s 30 Second Comedy Minute: Rick Matthews [AUDIO]
It's Funny Friday which means we have another edition of 'Tony P's 30 Second Comedy Minute' where we only feature local comedians from our fair city. They may no longer live here, but they are from here and making the world laugh.
Today's feature comedian hails from Eden and is a favorite in the local comedy scene. Over the last decade, Rick Matthews has been a mainstay in Buffalo comedy performing and producing shows all over the Queen City. He is a staple at Helium Comedy Club and he is currently producing and hosting a show their called 'Comics Against Humanity' which is a funny version of the game 'Cards Against Humanity'.
Rick has won the title of Buffalo's Funniest, hosted the longest running open mic in Buffalo at Nietzsche's, and has even toured the Northeast opening for Jim Norton. He can do just about anything...except go bra shopping for his 11 year old daughter. If you missed the segment on today's show, you can hear about that experience right here:
