When: Aug. 31-Sept. 1
If there is one thing you should know about Hannibal Buress — aside from all of that stuff about writing for 30 Rock and co-hosting the (brutally and wonderfully insane) Eric Andre Show — it’s this: In 2008, he went on tour with notorious Israeli madmen Monotonix and survived to tell the tale. As part of Fuck Yeah Fest’s traveling roadshow, Buress either had to open for or follow (I’m not sure which is preferable) a rock band that, over the course of an hour, would start fires, hang from the rafters and dump trash on each other.
But if there’s one comic who could weather that storm, it’s Buress. You could triangulate his style of comedy somewhere between Mitch Hedberg, Aziz Ansari and Donald Glover, but Buress walks a hilarious line of insightfulness and absurdity that is completely his own. $18
