An Uber driver in Rochester is the talk of the town.

He picked up comedian Joel McHale and then drove him six hours to New York City.

John Costello picked him up at a hotel in downtown Rochester after McHale told him his flight back to New York was cancelled.

McHale tipped him $200 and paid for his gas on top of the $700 ride charge.

Costello has only been driving for Uber for about two months.
