Night & Day — With the lack of music performers I can recommend you check out a comedy show at Helium Comedy Club in Buffalo. I was there for the very first time this past weekend for dinner and a show and had a spectacular time celebrating a friend’s birthday and checking out Hannibal Buress. This weekend’s shows feature Orny Adams, he has been on Leno, Letterman, was featured in Jerry Seinfeld’s documentary entitled “Comedian.” Tickets for the shows start at $15 and are available at heliumcomedy.com.
And if music and comedy are not your thing, “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” opens this weekend. I don’t see a lot of movies in the theater but I may just make a special trip to see this one.
Finally, for our shows on a tank of gas, Kanye West has a two-night run at Air Canada Center in Toronto on Saturday and Sunday. West has won 21 Grammy’s and is arguably the most famous rap artist in the genre’s history. Tickets start at $51.75 and are available through Ticketmaster.
On a final note, I would like to wish all of my readers a joyous holiday season and thank all of you who took the time to email me about this column in its first year.Thom Jennings covers the local music scene for Night and Day.
