Description: 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.
Doug Benson: Doug Benson (“Best Week Ever,” “Last Comic Standing”) has been on an album- a-year schedule since 2008, plus he records a popular weekly podcast (“Doug Loves Movies”), does the occasional film (“Super High Me”) and TV project (“The Benson Interruption”), and keeps up a robust schedule of live dates. Such a busy schedule for High Times’ 2009 Stoner of the Year.
