Chicago-bred and New York-based, Hannibal Buress delivers hilarious anecdotes and relates personal stories with a relaxed and unarming style. His tranquil manner, which occasionally gives way to excited rants, has landed him gigs 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 television programs. He has also made prime time appearances on Louie and 30 Rock, co-hosts the Adult Swim series The Eric Andre Show, and has previously written for 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live.
Buress has garnered praise from some of the most popular comedians in stand-up today. Chris Rock has lauded him as the “funniest young comic I’ve seen in years.” Jim Gaffigan called him “incredibly funny with a smart, unique style.” Demetri Martin said, “Hannibal is funny on stage and off stage and right in between, too.” And Mike Birbiglia, 2011’s UAA Homecoming comedian, said Buress is “one of the best joke writers I’ve ever seen.” In addition to these commendations, in 2012 Hannibal Buress won Comedy Central’s Best Club Comic Award and Rolling Stone, New York Times, and Variety have all included him in an assortment of “Top 10” lists for comics.
