Hannibal Buress is infamously known for taking down Justin Bieber during the singer’s recent Comedy Central roast. Buress has been featured in many television shows and movies. He is currently touring the country and is a co-host on The Eric Andre Show.
Hannibal Buress was born and raised in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. Buress embarked on a comedy career in late 2009, gaining notable recognition after being featured in Comedy Central’s “The Awkward Comedy Show”, alongside various other comedians. This enabled Buress to release his first comedy album, “My Name is Hannibal”, in 2010.
After leaving Saturday Night Live as a writer due to having a single sketch aired in a calendar year, Buress began writing for 30 Rock, receiving critical acclaim as a part of the writing team which culminated in an Emmy Award win. Despite only writing a single season for the show, Buress worked to release his second album, Animal Furnace, which eventually aired on Comedy Central in 2012. Following the critical and commercial success of Animal Furnace, Buress went on to feature in several specials for Comedy Central, as well as starring in Neighbors, The Secret Life of Pets, and Baywatch.
