Hannibal Buress: “If Steven Wright, Mos Def and Dave Chappelle had a baby, that would be disgusting, but it would sound like Hannibal Buress. The funniest young comic I’ve seen in years.” – Chris Rock Chicago-bred New York-based stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress established himself as a master of “comedic jokes related to personal stories, current events, the streets, and even food” (yes, someone actually wrote and published that line) in ANIMAL FURNACE, his COMEDY CENTRAL original one-hour stand-up special that premiered May 20, 2012. Hannibal Buress has appeared on THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!, THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON, and CONAN. He can be seen on 30 ROCK, LOUIE, and as the co-host of the Adult Swim series THE ERIC ANDRE SHOW. Buress has previously worked on the writing staffs of 30 ROCK and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE and was recently awarded the American Comedy Award for Best Club Comic of 2012. Though perpetually touring, Buress considers New York City, where he hosts a weekly Sunday comedy night at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory, to be his place of residence. He lives with zero pets and an XBOX 360, and has a cable package with the Starz network but never watches it.
Sam Morril: Sam Morril, one of the fastest rising comics in New York City, is also one of the best joke writers in the scene today. How do you know that’s true? Because he is writing this bio, and he wouldn’t lie about that to get extra work. He won March Madness 2010 at Comix, has performed in a Friars Roast, and was recently featured in a 4-page spread in the Daily News as “one of the four funniest in New York?” He just won the Laughing Skull Festival in Atlanta, beating out over 600 applicants. His comedy can be heard on Sirius XM radio, and he’s a regular at all the top clubs in the city, all at the tender and supple age of 24. Come see Sam before his ego gets too big to do small rooms.
