“If Steven Wright, Mos Def and Dave Chappelle had a baby, that would be disgusting, but it would sound like Hannibal Buress. The funniest young comic I’ve seen in years.” – Chris Rock

Chicago-bred New York-based stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress established himself as a master of “comedic jokes related to personal stories, current events, the streets, and even food” (yes, someone actually wrote and published that line) in ANIMAL FURNACE, his COMEDY CENTRAL original one-hour stand-up special that premiered May 20.

Hannibal Buress has appeared on THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!, THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON, CONAN and numerous other late night TV shows. He has also made prime time appearances on LOUIE and 30 ROCK, and is the co-host of the Adult Swim series THE ERIC ANDRE SHOW.

Buress has previously worked on the writing staffs of 30 ROCK and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, and released his debut album, MY NAME IS HANNIBAL, in 2010 on Stand Up! Records.

Though perpetually touring, Buress considers New York City, where he hosts a weekly Sunday comedy night at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory, to be his place of residence. He lives with zero pets and an XBOX 360, and has a cable package with the Starz network but never watches it.

    If I was terminally ill, this would be my make a wish

    I’ve heard great things about Hannibal. Also I’d love to have a night out with my husband. We are proud parents of a 13 month old little man. So you can say, we don’t get out much. ;)

    Hannibal is one funny dude and I love to laugh! Please get us together! :)

  5. Michael March 26, 2013 at 11:30 am #

    I ran into Hannibal on the street one time. He was eating a hot dog. I said, “Damn that looks like a tasty hot dog.” He confirmed that it was, indeed, a tasty hot dog. So I should win.

  6. Sian March 26, 2013 at 11:33 am #

    I’d love to go please

  7. Kyle S March 26, 2013 at 11:36 am #

    I’m a real nice guy. Hannibal might respect that.

  8. Taylor March 26, 2013 at 11:55 am #

    1) because I was able to answer the tricky question of five + ____ = 7

    2) because only a few months ago, I had never heard of him

    3) because he is now one of my favorite comedians and would be thrilled to see him live on stage

  9. Alex March 26, 2013 at 12:05 pm #

    because I’m too poor to afford it

  10. todd March 26, 2013 at 12:07 pm #

    I owe my friend tickets to something and he would like this.

    (hannibal is awesome.)

  11. abubba March 26, 2013 at 12:11 pm #

    I love watching him on David Letterman & seeing him live would be a hoot.

  12. Bill W. March 26, 2013 at 12:15 pm #

    Life is too short not to laugh, as often as possible.
    I’m ready, willing and able.

  13. Jesse O. March 26, 2013 at 12:24 pm #

    I need to win so we can start the Pigeon Kicking Olympics and then get all the good drunk drivers to drive the bad drunk drivers home.

  14. Jim March 26, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

    I want to see the Lenny Bruce of grocery store and mustache humor.

  15. John March 26, 2013 at 12:27 pm #

    I have hypertension and know that laughter will put me at risk of having a massive heart attack, but I am willing to take that chance happily knowing that I my death might give Hannibal some more great material.

  16. Amy March 26, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

    I love comedy, good comedy that is. I would love to go!

  17. Jesse O. March 26, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    If the moderator was a Hannibal Buress fan, he might know that these comments come from his two comedy albums.

  18. Sandy March 26, 2013 at 1:57 pm #

    My husband and I need a good laugh to livin up our 4th wedding anniversary!

  19. Kari Fiori March 26, 2013 at 2:26 pm #

    I am a big fan! Also, I live right down the street from the Aladdin. I hinted around to my boyfriend that I really, really wanted to see this show, but, alas, he didn’t get me tix for my birthday (March 19!). I’m pretty broke. Driving past the marquee day in and day out is SWEET TORTURE!

    Pick me!! Pick me!!!

    Love and respect,

    Kari Fiori

    Hannibal is my favorite comedian and his shows never disappoint!

  21. Taylor Siolka March 26, 2013 at 3:14 pm #

    I thought it was hilarious when he cut off that prison guard’s face and wore it as his own to escape the cell. I tell ya, that jokester sure gave me a case of the yucks! …oh wait, this isn’t for Hannibal Lector? Ah… um… well I guess this guy could be funny too. I’d love to go!

  22. jared March 26, 2013 at 3:24 pm #

    Oh wow! I had no idea Hannibal was going to be here again. I found out about him last year and he’s a hoot…blah blah blah…I wanna go!

  23. Wendy March 26, 2013 at 3:29 pm #

    Pick me! I don’t have a job and need a laugh!

  24. Marissa Burch March 26, 2013 at 5:52 pm #

    OOh OOH! Choose me! :)

    I need this, I haven’t laughed in over 300 years :(

  28. Maggie March 27, 2013 at 10:59 am #

    Would love to see Hannibal at the Aladdin and possibly hear him discuss why he loves burritos more than Jesus; why he wants to kick a pigeon; why he has so much pickle juice; and what it would be like to bring Lil’ Kim home to mom?? !!!!

  29. Nicole smith ryan March 27, 2013 at 12:09 pm #

    This would be fun

  30. dp March 27, 2013 at 9:25 pm #

  32. Hilary Andriesian March 28, 2013 at 12:00 pm #

    After dealing with a death in the family, I am in dire need of being cheered up…seriously.

  33. Melinda Durham March 28, 2013 at 12:34 pm #

    PLEASE give me a reason to get out of the house! I’m just getting over being sick for the past two weeks and comedy is exactly what I need!

    Hannibal Burress is a top tier comedian and I regret not seeing him when he came to Mississippi Studios. Help me eliminate that regret!

  38. Tammy March 28, 2013 at 2:34 pm #

    I haven’t been to see stand-up comedy in years!

  42. Peter McLean March 28, 2013 at 3:47 pm #

    He talks about my two favorite things, sandwiches and cars. Big Eric Andre fan, 30 rock fan, HB fan in general.

    Hands in the air for PIPELINE! Thanks for the chance!

    I’ve been overly subjected to Kevin Hart lately, Hannibal Buress is a welcoming breath of fresh air!

  53. Angie March 29, 2013 at 11:30 am #

    I’m his #1 Fan like KATHY BATES in the movie ‘MISERY’….minus the hobbling of the ankles of course.
