HANNIBAL BURESS - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
HANNIBAL BURESS
Hannibal Buress is widely known for having an “irresistible” comedic presence that lands squarely between “cerebral and swagger,” (New York Times). Buress, the 2012 winner of Comedy Central’s award for Best Club Comic, signed a deal with the network that debuted his second one hour special “Live in Chicago” in March 2014. Buress also serves as a series regular on Comedy Central’s Broad City, helmed by executive producer Amy Poehler, and appeared in the film Neighbors, alongside Seth Rogen and Zac Efron.

With talents that also include video directing (“NaNa” by Chance the Rapper), commercial acting (Nike’s Kevin Durant spot), and lending his voice to the much-anticipated game “Grand Theft Auto V”, Buress has been lauded by Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, and Variety for his stage presence and wit. As a stand-up comedian, he’s been consistently featured throughout the late-night circuit, including the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and the Late Late show with Craig Ferguson. A former staff writer for both SNL and 30 Rock, Buress is the co-host of Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show, has guest-starred on Fox’s The Mindy Project, and appears as a regular “expert” on FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. In addition, his debut comedy CD, My Name Is Hannibal (2010) and his Comedy Central one-hour special, Animal Furnace (2012), were both lavished with praise, each making multiple Top 10 lists.
