The American comedian hosts the Handsome Rambler podcast, has had multiple Netflix specials, co-hosts the cult favorite The Eric Andre Show, broken his way into Hollywood (recently, as a coach on Spider-Man: Homecoming) and has had a recurring role on Broad City since it first aired. Not to mention once being a writer for both Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. The guy does it all.
Evolving from stand-up jokes to storytelling, Hannibal has an enviable CV and has earned his title as one of the most “supremely gifted and respected” comics around, as lauded by The New York Times.
Some even believe the Chicago comic played a significant role in bringing the Bill Cosby case to light after a joke he made in a stand up show, with Jamil Smith, a senior writer at Rolling Stone, tweeting “Give @hannibalburess credit. He understood that this remains a country where women making accusations of sexual assault aren’t believed until a man echoes them. One can only hope that Cosby’s conviction is a tipping point in that regard. We must do better.”
