Comedian Hannibal Buress has had quite a month, but more on that in a second. For now, we’ll just cut the chase: In January, Hannibal Buress will be at Charleston Comedy Festival.
More than a month after a video hit the web of a bit former SNL writer and Adult Swim star Hannibal Buress performed about Bill Cosby, it’s still making waves in the national media. It’s a bit that Buress told Howard Stern that he’d done for months, where he criticizes sitcom funny-man Bill Cosby for his outspokenness toward other comedians, tossing back decades-old sexual assault allegations that have dogged Cosby, but for which he’s never been convicted.
“‘I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!'” Buress mimics. “Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches.”
Cracker Barrel is the Tim Duncan of chain restaurants. A consistent superstar that is boring, efficient, and underrated.

So, yeah. Buress said some provocative things about Bill Cosby. But he also thinks all rats are guys. He does not like NBA mascots names, but he called Cracker Barrel “the Tim Duncan of chain restaurants.” He will give you free tickets if you film yourself singing Petey Pablo.
He’ll also be at the Sottile Theatre on January 14 for the first night of Charleston Comedy Festival 2015. Get your tickets now.
