Williamsville Comedy Benefit for Trees Leaves Locals Laughing

The 2nd Annual Leaves & Laughs comedy festival saw four seasoned comics bolt through a raucous rant of one liners to the delight of a nearly sold out Rob's Comedy Playhouse in Williamsville on Saturday.

Opening was club co-owner Rob Lederman who took shots at TV garden show host Sally Cunningham seated just a sapling's length away, "you make the auto advice guy sound interesting", ripped Lederman, citing her Sunday morning tube appearances.

Such was the mood of the evening with the microphone relay from Lederman to Dan Pordum to the eventual headliner Marc Sinodinos gathering steam and goading the well-lubricated gallery with quips on their occupations and orientations.
