Hannibal Buress

Watch: Hannibal Buress, Nick Offerman and Larry King Audition to Replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine

By

Hugh Jackman has played Wolverine in eight X-Men movies, and though his face has now completely fused to people’s notions of the character, it seems he’ll be abdicating his claws after staring in the sequel to The Wolverine in 2017. Enter Conan, who’s shooting his show from San Diego Comic-Con this week, and was able — “don’t ask [him] how — to get ahold of the audition tapes” to find Jackman’s replacement.

Stand-up Is the Star of Comedy Central’s Promising ‘Why? With Hannibal Buress’

By

Why? With Hannibal Buress is still very much a work in progress, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it remained that way for the entirety of its ten-episode first season. This isn’t a bad thing — Buress excels when he is seemingly unpolished, and his laid-back but incredulous delivery tends to make his stand-up flow as though he just thought of something — making last night’s pilot a fine, if shaky, debut.

How 10 of the Best Stand-Up Comedians Handle Hecklers

By

If we learned anything about stand-up comedy last fall, it’s that when a Hannibal Buress video goes viral, you should probably watch it. This time, his YouTube hit isn’t going to end an icon’s career; it’s just an enormously entertaining three-minute destruction of a boorish heckler. Said hecklers have been the bane of many a comedian’s existence — drunken assholes, bachelorette party morons, and would-be comics have been mistaking stand-up for interactivity since the form began. So on this April Fools’ Day, we thought we’d take a look at how Buress and a few other comic greats handled these particular fools.
