We’re super excited that one of our favorite comedians, Hannibal Buress is set to release a new stand-up special as part of the epic stand-up month that Comedy Central is launching in April.
Buress’ screened Live From Chicago in front of an audience at SXSW last week. It’s his third special and the follow up to his incredible 2012, Animal Furnace. It will premiere on Comedy Central on March 29th at midnight and be available on DVD and digitally on April 1st. The best news is that you can download Live From Chicago via CC: Stand-up Direct for $5 starting Monday, March 24th, full week before you can get it on DVD.
Here are three preview clips. In the first, Buress describes the trend of rappers talking about taking the drug Molly. Buress decided that Molly was a good thing for him to try and it ended the way everything ends, with pissed pants and dancing of course.
Then there’s that time when he wanted to see Eddie Griffin and decided that he didn’t want to pay to see the show so he impersonated Donald Glover.
… and of course there’s the time when he tried to use his job as a comedian to see someone’s boobs. Which, is exactly what someone should do in these instances.
