Cool, confident and intelligent, comedian Hannibal Buress has earned both the honor of performing at the Montreal “Just For Laughs” Festival and the well-earned respect of his peers, who regard him as one of the brightest young talents to emerge from the city of Chicago. A natural storyteller who can captivate a room with his words alone, Hannibal generates huge laughs with the laidback, quirky observations that have become his trademark style.
Hannibal’s stories about his experiences with dating older women, the merits of Courier New font, and his not-so-secret desire to kick pigeons have led to appearances on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. His appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon led to him being hired as a writer on Saturday Night Live.
In addition to performing at clubs and colleges around the country, including regular appearances at respected New York City venues, Hannibal is one of the featured subjects in director Victor Varnado’s documentary about unconventional black comedians, The Awkward Comedy Show. His as-yet-untitled debut CD, recently recorded at The Lakeshore Theater in Chicago, will be released by Grammy Award-winning Stand Up! Records.
