BUFFALO -- Eight of the area's funniest people will battle it out Wednesday night for the title of Buffalo's Best Comic. It will all be decided at the new Helium Comedy Club in Buffalo's Cobblestone District.

The contest is the culmination of three months of auditioning. In all, more than 60 comics from around Western New York entered and Wednesday night only one will be crowned and win $500.

We're told all 8 have different styles but do have one thing in common, they'll make you laugh.

"You have to expect a lot of laughs," said contest organizer Louie Gee. "These are the top 8 comedians. These are the guys who are going to bring their best stuff tonight. They have 10 minutes each to really impress the judges."

The finals start at 8 p.m. tonight at Helium Comedy Club.
