Hannibal Buress to a Heckler: "You, Sir, Are a Social Terrorist"

Why do we love heckler videos so much? Is it because it's fascinating to see experienced comedians bounce back from unexpected interruptions, or is it because watching a drunk, selfish idiot get humiliated in front of thousands of people is always a good time? In this new clip from Hannibal Buress on tour in Delaware, it's the perfect combination of both. Plus, it's impossible to listen to Buress's belly laughs and not smile.

Comedy Central Orders Eight Episodes of 'Why? With Hannibal Buress'

It looks like Hannibal Buress has finally landed his own Comedy Central series after all. According to The Wrap, Comedy Central has picked up eight episodes of a weekly half-hour series called Why? With Hannibal Buress, which will follow Buress "as he addresses major cultural issues through stand-up, filmed segments, man-on-the-street interviews and interviews with in-studio guests." The show is slated to debut this July, nearly a year and a half after Buress put his dreams out into the world by saying Comedy Central had ordered his last pilot Unemployable to series a little too soon.

Watch Hannibal Buress and Danny Brown Drive Around Bonnaroo in a Golf Cart

Ahead of tonight's big lineup announcement, Bonnaroo posted a brand new clip today from last year's show featuring Hannibal Buress and rapper Danny Brown (and later, special guest Seth Herzog) riding around the festival grounds on a golf cart while interacting with fans, discussing standup and hip hop, and briefly getting in trouble with a security guard who takes the Bonnaroo golf cart traffic rules very seriously.

Hannibal Buress Calls Cracker Barrel "The Tim Duncan of Chain Restaurants"

Hannibal Buress posted a brand new restaurant review over the weekend, this time on a Cracker Barrel location in Macon, Georgia. Unlike Lamb's Creek in Pennsylvania, Buress has a few nice things to say about the Cracker Barrel franchise: "I've never walked out of a Cracker Barrel thinking 'What the fuck?'" Also: "Cracker Barrel is the Tim Buncan of chain restaurants: It's a superstar, but slightly boring, but efficient." Plus, without Cracker Barrel's gift shop he couldn't have made the impulse purchase of a $20 keyboard to pursue his dreams of being the world's #1 Hannibal. Cracker Barrel: It's underrated, it's consistent, and it'll make your dreams come true.

'The Eric Andre Show's Third Season Premieres on Adult Swim November 6th

The Eric Andre Show just got a season 3 premiere date. According to a Twitter update by Andre, the Adult Swim series is slated to premiere on Thursday, November 6th at 12:15am, and Hannibal Buress revealed earlier today that Chris Rock is among the celebrity guests slated to appear. If you still have some catching up to do, the complete first and second seasons are still available to view on Adult Swim's website. For more on the series, check out our interview with Andre from last year.

Watch Hannibal Buress Play Drums for Speedy Ortiz at SXSW

Hannibal Buress might have forgotten the name of the band he played with at SXSW during his interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, but thankfully Pitchfork has him covered with the full video. Hopefully now Speedy Ortiz gets some wider recognition thanks to their guest drummer, who is clearly much better at having a good time than keeping a steady beat.

Have Some Fun on a Boat with Hannibal Buress

Hannibal Buress might have retired as a restaurant reviewer, but he's back with a brand new Comedy Camisado tour video, this time on a boat (also known as a "social lubricant"), without any lunch, while drinking some Coors Light: "I guess I'm gonna review the experience of being on a boat. Hey, spoiler alert: This shit is pretty dope!"

ESPN Recruits Hannibal Buress as an NBA Reporter

ESPN and Grantland sent Hannibal Buress to a Cavs/Pelicans game to try to report on unibrowed superstar Anthony Davis. Unfortunately, Davis was injured and left the game after only seven minutes, but Hannibal managed to make the most of his courtside access anyways. Even if Lebron refused to answer his questions.

Hannibal Buress Reviews a Restaurant in Mansfield, PA: "Your Restaurant's a Real Piece of Shit"

Hannibal Buress is currently on his Comedy Camisado tour, so he decided to put his experience on the road to use by launching a new series of local restaurant reviews. He uploaded the first (and hopefully not the last) installment today, recalling his less than stellar experience at Lamb's Creek in Mansfield, Pennsylvania. Hopefully Lamb's Creek steps up their celery game in the future.

Hannibal Buress Talks About His New Book Deal on 'Conan'

Standup Hannibal Buress was a guest on last night's Conan, where he told O'Brien about his recent book deal — even though he still has no idea what the book's going to be about. Watch another part from the interview below:

Hannibal Buress and Jimmy Kimmel Talk Cosby, Bieber, and SXSW

Hannibal Buress was a guest on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live in Austin, and the two talked about everything from the death threats he's received since his Bill Cosby joke went viral to his first roasting experience on the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber to what he's been up to at SXSW this week, which involves playing drums in a band whose name escapes him at just the wrong moment:

Abbi Has a Laughing Gas Dance Party on This Week's 'Broad City'

If last week's Broad City taught us anything, it's that every episode should feature a scene of Abbi Jacobson gloriously expressing herself through the art of dance. Thankfully, this week's episode looks to be a perfect follow-up when Abbi and Ilana pay a visit to Lincoln the dentist/pasta blogger to get Abbi's wisdom teeth removed with the help of some nitrous oxide.

Hannibal Buress Takes Over 'The Eric Andre Show' Tonight

When The Eric Andre Show airs tonight at 12:15am, the roles of host and sidekick will finally be reversed when Hannibal Buress takes over for a special edition of The Hannibal Buress Show. Adult Swim just released the above sneak peek of the episode, and it looks like Buress will be creating plenty of chaos during his turn behind the desk.

Aparna Nancherla to Audience Members Who Record Shows: "Don't Be a Jerk"

Comedian and current host of weekly New York standup show Whiplash Aparna Nancherla wrote an interesting blog post today about last night's show, which featured a surprise performance by Chris Rock that quickly turned sour after several audience members started recording his set on their cell phones. Similarly, Hannibal Buress has been making headlines this week over a six-month-old bit he performed in Philadelphia last week calling Bill Cosby a rapist, which would've never made the news had it not been for an audience member recording the joke then uploading it to the internet. Unlike Buress, however, Rock's appearance at Whiplash last night [...]
