Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Hannibal Buress is one of the silliest, smartest, and most distinctive voices in comedy. And those who know that Stand Up! Records cut our teeth on comics like Patton Oswalt, Doug Stanhope, and Maria Bamford, know we don't say that lightly. No, Buress is the real deal. A Chicago native, Saturday Night Live writer, and one of the few black men to make it big in Heeb Magazine, Buress has a peerless deadpan delivery, brilliant timing, and a knack for the nonsequitur. He's got a yen to punt a pigeon, but the street smarts to know the papers are just gonna run with ''Black Dudes Kicking Pigeons!'' the next day. He leans when he texts so it'll come out italic. He daydreams about strangling guys who ask ''Is your name really Hannibal? Like that's on your birth certificate? Like, your parents call you Hannibal?'' just to find out if they'll squawk Are you choking me? With your hands? Are you trying to restrict the flow of oxygen to my brain?'' He single-handedly wrote a jingle for Plan B and called it ''Zygote Killers.'' And yes, Hannibal Buress likes burritos more than Jesus. Because steak burritos are delicious. And they're real. New York Magazine recently named Buress one of their top ten ''Comics to Watch,'' but we think you're gonna want to listen to his first stand-up CD, ''My Name is Hannibal,'' out now from Stand Up! Records, home of fine comedy. And pigeon-kickers.

"If Steven Wright, Mos Def and Dave Chappelle had a baby, that would be disgusting, but it would sound like Hannibal Buress. The funniest young comic I've seen in years." - Chris Rock

"Hannibal is incredibly funny with a smart, unique style and I am proud to be his father." - Jim Gaffigan

"I haven't heard this album, and I never will. But I've seen Hannibal do comedy, and if the CD is a recording of him doing comedy, then it's probably worth getting. I mean, I still won't get it, but you can. And you might like it." - Todd Barry

"Hannibal is funny on stage and off stage and right in between, too." -Demetri Martin

"Hannibal's debut album is hilarious. Also hilarious - Aziz Ansari's debut album Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening, now available in stores EVERYWHERE!" - Aziz Ansari

"One of the best joke writers I've ever seen. He's one of the few performers I've come across that creates such electricity in a room that I think 'this guy is going to be a star FOR SURE." -Mike Birbiglia, star of What I Should Have Said Was Nothing and author of Sleepwalk With Me and Other Painfully True Stories

Review

Buress is patient with his premises, allowing details to set before pulling the rug out from under the audience. --Steve Heisler, Variety, July 13, 2010

He's as goofy as he is smart, blue as he is analytical and just damn funny. My Name is Hannibal is, so far, one of the strongest, most satisfying comedy albums of the year. --Reid Faylor, PunchlineMagazine(dot)com, July 8, 2010

My Name is Hannibal provides some great laugh-out-loud moments and introduces audiences to an outstanding stand-up comedian with an eye for unusual detail and an ear for comic timing. --Leslie C. Halpern, Suite101(dot)com, July 19, 2010

The comparisons to Mitch are apt, not because he's identical, but because Mr. Burress has the same laid-back style and intelligent content, with a unique perspective on the absurdities of life. I've been playing this constantly for friends and have yet to come across anyone who doesn't like it.

Metal arms!

I'm a fanatic for comedy albums. After playing some of my favorites to death (Norm Macdonald, Harland Williams, Jim Gaffigan, pretty much everything Louis CK and Dave Chappelle have ever done), I went off in search for more. I found some gold, some pewter, and some plain old garbage. Here are the fruits of my labors.

HANNIBAL BURESS --> My Name Is Hannibal / Animal Furnace
Hannibal has a very casual, friendly delivery that is polished without seeming over-rehearsed. He's got a ton of charisma on the mike, and his jokes manage to mingle just the right amount of intelligence with an equal measure of absurdity. He reuses a few bits from one album to the next, but they're both still A-list material from beginning to end, and it all has a high replay factor. I'm looking forward to more from him in the future. FIVE STARS

TJ MILLER --> Mash Up Audiofile
TJ Miller just doesn't have enough stuff out there. He has a DVD, but I prefer to listen to my comedy, being on the go as I am. I've caught a lot of Miller on various podcasts, and I've loved his general aura enough to seek this gem out. He's got a powerful level of lunacy to his bits, but his goofy demeanor makes it super accessible. Plus, the CD contains some musical remixes of his jokes, a gimmick that I've never seen before. It doesn't work 100%, but it's still fun and infectious, like most of his comedy. FIVE STARS

KYLE KINANE --> Whiskey Icarus
Like a lot of comedians, Kyle struggles with self-image, self-acceptance, and just plain old living in general.

Way funnier than average. You can always sample some of his stuff elsewhere to see if it's you're thing. I laughed hard and was not disappointed at all. Probably caters to those with a little weirder sense of humor, but I loved it.

Hannibal kills it on this CD. His jokes are all orignal and unexpected. Although he kind of slurs his words to the point on some tracks that you have to ask "what did he just say", once you figure it out you won't stop laughing.

Hannibal Buress is one of the top comics to emerge in the last couple of years. This album is terrific. He's smart and clever with great diction and delivery. Buy this album, you won't be disappointed.

Hannibal has such natural talent, his delivery is very clear and this attention to detail is very impressive.

I've seen him live and heard his audio and video: Everything Is super funny. Love this work- I would recommend this to comedy fans!

"I play video games" and "Metal arms" are my favorite bits from this album, and the surrounding material does not disappoint. First heard on XM Raw Dog, almost had to pull over I laughed so hard.
