Hannibal Buress

Comedian Hannibal Buress won Comedy Central’s award for Best Club Comic in 2012, signing a deal with the network, which later debuted his one-hour special “Live in Chicago." He is a series regular on Comedy Central’s Broad City, helmed by executive producer Amy Poehler, and appeared alongside Seth Rogen and Zac Efron in the film Neighbors.

Buress has also directed music videos (including “NaNa” by Chance the Rapper), acted in commercials (including Nike’s Kevin Durant spot), and lent his voice to Grand Theft Auto V. He has been lauded by The New York Times, 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 on the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He is a former staff writer for Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, the co-host of Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show, has guest-starred on Fox’s The Mindy Project, and appears regularly as an “expert” on FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. His debut comedy CD, My Name Is Hannibal (2010) and his first Comedy Central one-hour special, Animal Furnace (2012), were both lavished with praise and made several critics’ top 10 lists.
