Hannibal Buress Giveaway
If Hannibal Buress gets bored with an interview, he’ll make things up to keep things spicy. He’ll tell you he got his job on Broad City while betting with one of his co-stars in an underground gambling ring. He’ll tell you he dreams of eating a penguin. He’ll tell you ninjas kidnapped him as a child, and he had to do a ‘killer five-minute set’ to get away. The more far-fetched his stories are, the more we laugh. As Buress rises to the top as the straight-faced funny man delivering you the awkward and absurd, he’s making a stop in Pittsburgh on November 9th at the Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall.
Although his story bounces around depending on his mood, the origin of most of his comedy stories began on his college campus in 2002. While he attended Southern Illinois University, he did open mic nights. In 2008, he moved to New York to live with his sister while he tried to score some shows. His sister didn’t agree with this abrupt plan and Buress quickly found himself sleeping on the subway. For a while, he continued this nomad life at hostels or on friend’s couches while he looked for gigs. In 2009, Saturday Night Live hired him as a writer, and his career soon shot up from there. He went on to write for 30 Rock, co-host Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show, and acting on Comedy Central’s Broad City.
