Make way for the beards.

Tonight (Jan. 27), Buffalo will play host to an up-and-coming comedy quartet whose burly members identify themselves as the Beards of Comedy. The four men -- Andy Sandford, Joe Zimmerman, TJ Young and Dave Stone -- describe their approach as "an original brand of humor that’s deeply rooted in stand-up and lightly blended with avant-garde elements of music, sketch and improv." The Beards are slowly gaining fans with a series of tongue-in-cheek online videos, one of which, "Breakfast Banditos," was recently picked up by the popular comedy site Funny or Die.

The show gets going at 8 p.m. in the Ninth Ward, the hip basement bar and performance space in Babeville (341 Delaware Ave.). Tickets are $12 at the door, with more information at
