Get your parade permit and call the band, Stand-Up Month is here on Comedy Central! Hannibal Buress kicks it off back in his hometown with the uncensored world premiere of Hannibal Buress Live From Chicago debuting on Saturday, March 29 at Midnight ET/PT. An extended and uncensored edition of the special will be available Friday, March 21 on CC: Stand-Up Direct, for fans that just can't wait for the on-air premiere.
Taped at The Vic Theatre in his hometown of Chicago, IL, Buress' second one-hour stand-up special features his signature dry wit and cool delivery. This time around, the Comedy Central and Broad City favorite rolls out new material about his own second line parade in New Orleans, fist fights in London, and many memorable late nights on the road.
On April 1 the extended and uncensored edition will be available on DVD exclusively via Amazon.Com and for download on iTunes, Xbox Video, Sony Entertainment Network, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu and Target. The digital album will be available via iTunes, Amazon MP3, and other major retailers on April 1.
Leading up to the on-air premiere, Comedy Central Stand-Up and cc.com/Hannibal will feature preview clips from the special, including a special animated clip produced by CC:Studios. Buress will also take part in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" Q&A in the week leading up to the on-air premiere, and fans can follow him on Twitter at @HannibalBuress.
Buress is a wildly popular comedian, writer and actor whom The New York Times praises as having an "irresistible" comedic presence that lands squarely between "cerebral and swagger." In addition to his second one-hour special, Buress is a cast member on the hit Comedy Central series Broad City as well as FX's animated show Chozen. He recently shot a pilot for his own Comedy Central series and is also the co-host of Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show, which will shoot its third season this Spring. In 2014, he will also make appearances on the big screen in the feature films Neighbors, starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, and Flock of Dudes, starring Chris D'Elia, Eric Andre and Hillary Duff.
Hannibal Buress Live From Chicago is executive produced by Buress, Dave Becky, Avi Gilbert, and Neal Marshall. Anne Harris is the Executive in Charge for Comedy Central.
