Chicago funny man Hannibal Buress brings the laughs home
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.
