Hannibal Buress started performing stand-up comedy in his native Chicago in 2002. Honing his skills on the circuit before becoming a regular on various chat shows, he made his TV debut on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (CBS 2005-) in 2007 followed by "Larry King Live" (CNN 1985-2010) and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (NBC 2009-2014). Moving to New York in 2008, his laconic deadpan humor obviously struck a chord as Buress was named "Best Male Comedian" by the Excellence in Comedy New York awards in 2009. He soon became part of the huge writing team behind the 35th season of "Saturday Night Live" (NBC 1975-) during 2009/2010, which saw Buress being nominated for "Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Series" award at the Primetime Emmys. Buress also appeared in a handful of sketches on the late-night staple and appeared twice in cult comedy series "Louie" (FX 2010-) in 2010. His continued commitment to stand up and the release of his first comedy album "My Name is Hannibal" (Stand Up Records) saw him named by Variety in their "10 Comics to Watch in 2010" feature.
