Every month Skyler Stone (Raising Hope, Comedy Central's CON, Waiting, For Your Consideration) puts on an amazing evening of comedy and music. Except it is not what you might think. It isn't comedians going up and then musicians going up and doing their separate acts. NO! It is all integrated. Skyler only books comedians who use music in their acts (like Zach Galifianakis or Garfunkel & Oates) and comics who love to talk about music in their acts (think Brian Posehn ranting about metal music or Chris Porter gabbing about the Black Crowes).
“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
Chicago-bred New York-based stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress established himself as a master of “comedic jokes related to personal stories, current events, the streets, and even food” (yes, someone actually wrote and published that line) in ANIMAL FURNACE, his COMEDY CENTRAL original one-hour stand-up special that premiered May 20, 2012.
Hannibal Buress has appeared on THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!, THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON, and CONAN. He can be seen on 30 ROCK, LOUIE, and as the co-host of the Adult Swim series THE ERIC ANDRE SHOW. Buress has previously worked on the writing staffs of 30 ROCK and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE and was recently awarded the American Comedy Award for Best Club Comic of 2012.
Though perpetually touring, Buress considers New York City, where he hosts a weekly Sunday comedy night at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory, to be his place of residence. He lives with zero pets and an XBOX 360, and has a cable package with the Starz network but never watches it.
Born in the same Brooklyn, NY hospital where most of his seven brothers and one sister found their way into the world, Tony Rock was born laughing. He grew up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in New York and developed a natural knack for entertaining.
“On a daily basis I’d see a dozen characters (and I emphasize the word characters). One moment, I’d be fighting for my life. The next minute I’d be laughing hysterically. There’s a lot of drama in the city and I took it all in.”
Tony has been performing for years and he has gained a reputation as a young star in the making. The Hollywood Reporter recently picked him as one of the hot young talents to come out of New York.
Tony just finished shooting the film “Three Can Play That Game” with Vivica Fox in Atlanta and recently wrapped his fourth season of “All of Us” on the CW, playing the role of Dirk Black. He starred in the films “Life Support” with Queen Latifah, and “Homie Spumoni” with Whoopi Goldberg and Joey Fatone. He is currently featured on the TV screen as the host of TV One’s “The Funny Spot”.
Tony's stand-up comedy talents were showcased in the recent revival of “Def Comedy Jam” on HBO. He was previously the host of “Can You Tell?” on Oxygen, and a feature reporter on “Battlebots”. He’s also been featured on Howard Stern, Extra, and Craig Kilborn. Tony can be seen headlining comedy clubs across the country, including Caroline’s, the Apollo, the Laugh Factory, and the Comedy Store.
