Like many visiting stars, Michael Ian Black took to Twitter to remind his nearly 2 million followers of coming performances Thursday through Saturday in Helium Comedy Club.
Some comedians will click "send" and then ignore the deluge of responses/questions, which typically include "What do you think about the Bills?" or "Have you been to Niagara Falls yet?"
Not Black, who embraced a social media discussion with locals over tacos. Buffalo's food truck pioneers, Lloyd Taco trucks, and third-wave coffee extraordinaires, Public Espresso, were suggested by @SteveKarrotstik. Humor ensued.
Here's the thread of tweets from Wednesday morning:

The suspense is killing us. Will Michael Ian Black battle his general malaise and fall victim to taco cravings? Will the fleet of Lloyd trucks scheme to appease him? What will Black order? He seems like the conservative type; we predict chicken burrito, mild.
