"He lit himself on fire, and walked off the stage slowly" -Otto & George R.I.P.
The Greek God's in the heavens have Zeus & Apollo, here on Earth we have Buda (BOOOODA) The Comedian. Buda is a 6ft 3 inch FORMER 520 lb, Ukrainian, Italian, in your face, full of energy, no holds barred, comedian. Buda's impressions are unique and dead on, and the way he tells a story is like no other.
