Comix At Foxwoods presents Hannibal Buress and his national stand-up comedy tour Comedy Camisado at the Fox Theater at Foxwoods on Saturday, Nov. 22 at 10:00 p.m.
A native of the Austin neighborhood of Chicago, Buress was named after the Carthegian military commander Hannibal Barca. Buress, a comedic genius, is known for his signature stylistically diverse, relaxed and conversational style mixed with longer stories, highly animated moments, and a willingness to play with form, using music queues and audio A wildly popular Emmy and WGA Award-nominated comedian, writer and actor, Buress got his first crack at comedy while he was a writer on “Saturday Night Live” from 2009-2010.
He left having had only one of his sketches aired. In September 2010, he began writing for the fifth season of the NBC comedy series “30 Rock.” He quit six months later. Since then, the stand-up sensation has been the subject of critically acclaimed reviews for his on-stage work. The New York Times called Buress, “an irresistible comedic presence that lands squarely between ‘cerebral and swagger’.” Buress is currently a cast member on the hit Comedy Central series “Broad City,” which will premiere its second season in 2015, and is also the co-host of Adult Swim’s “The Eric Andre Show,” which will premiere its third season in November 2014.
This summer Buress also appeared in the blockbuster comedy feature “Neighbors,” starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, and later this year can be seen in the film “Flock of Dudes,” starring Chris D’Elia, Eric Andre, and Hillary Duff.
His first stand-up comedy album “My Name is Hannibal” was released on July 27, 2010. He released his second album, “Animal Furnace,” in 2012, which also aired as a special on Comedy Central. The album and special received positive reviews. Hannibal’s highly rated second hour standup special “Hannibal Buress Live from Chicago” premiered on Comedy Central on March 29, 2014 and was a smash hit across the board, receiving rave reviews.
Hannibal has since shot a pilot for his own Comedy Central series, and has been featured on several comedy-fan favorite TV shows including FX’s “Louie,” Fox’s “Bob’s Burgers,” “The Mindy Project,” Comedy Central’s “Kroll Show,” and Adult Swim’s “China, IL.” Buress is also a regular on the late night TV circuit, with appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Conan,” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.”
