Comedian Hannibal Buress is back in his hometown of Chicago performing at Zanie's Chicago.

Hannibal Buress started out doing stand-up gigs here in Chicago.  More recently, he has been a writer for Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. Eight Forty-Eight revisits a 2010 interview with Vocalo’s Brian Babylon and Buress, who performs at Zanies this week.  He began by reminiscing on his early days as a comedian, when it was a struggle just to get around town.
