For those unacquainted with Hannibal Buress, he has appeared on both big and small screens as an actor and writer. He has written for 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live, co-hosted The Eric Andre Show, and starred in hits such as Broad City, Spiderman: Homecoming, and Tag. The New York Times even crowned him “one of the most supremely gifted and respected comics” around. Buress’ standup delivery is absolutely on-point, turning everyday situations into outrageous jokes that will have your stomach aching from laughter. He also hosts a podcast called The Handsome Rambler with his friend DJ Tony Trimm, which you can listen to on Spotify.
