Hannibal Buress Was Amazing on Letterman


This is a terrible-quality video of Hannibal Buress killing it on The Late Show with David Letterman last Friday. But it is worth it! Buress, who's currently a writer on 30 Rock, is hilarious, and if you're not familiar with his standup this is a pretty great intro to him.

    This was sooooo funny. A lot of stuff I haven't heard before too. Hannibal is great.

    I found this distinctly unamusing. The audience must have been warmed up for this, because I only found two or three quips even vaguely amusing. The rest of it seemed like awkwardly-delivered observational comedy which wasn't very funny at all. Couldn't understand what the audience found so funny most of the time, his pickle juice jokes fell flat with me here.

    I also showed this sketch to some other people here and none of us found it funny either. Perhaps this comedy is specific to New Yorkers?

    NB: I really enjoy 30 Rock, it's some of the most cutting, witty comedy on TV either side of the pond. (I'm British)
