Local Comic Turned SNL Writer Hannibal Buress Returns to the Windy City

Chicago has long been known as a breeding ground for comics. From Tina Fey to Bernie Mac the newest star is Hannibal Buress. And we can say we knew him way back when before he moved to 30 Rockefeller Plaza in the Big Apple. Hannibal recently came home after his first season of writing for Saturday Night Live. His pal, Brian Babylon, who does stand-up and hosts a shift on our sister station, Vocalo.org recently talked with him. The two of them recall the time back when Hannibal had trouble getting around Chicago. You can watch Hannibal Buress in the Awkward Comedy Show tonight at midnight on Comedy Central.
