The stars were out in full force for Comedy Central’s roast of Justin Bieber, which aired last night. While many of the jokes got pretty harsh, the panelists mostly stuck to topics that seemed Bieber-approved. But one joke, delivered by comedian and Bill Cosby career destroyer Hannibal Buress, was so painfully true that it was cut from the broadcast. More

Comedian Hannibal Buress may best be known to some as the comedian who ignited the Bill Cosby firestorm, but he’s also a hilarious standup and television star, lending his talent to two of the funniest, most progressive comedies on television, Broad City and The Eric Andre Show.
He appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin last night to discuss two things: first, that he’s been receiving death threats from Bill Cosby supporters, and second, that he managed to become a rockstar overnight. More
If you like him on Broad City, and you’re insane enough to sit through The Eric Andre Show, you should be happy to know that standup comedian and star of the two aforementioned programs will be getting his own time slot on Comedy Central in the coming months. More
Yesterday evening, Bill Cosby (or the interns that run Bill Cosby’s Twitter account) asked people to submit Cosby memes to their website. This, despite Cosby recently being in the news because of old sexual assault accusations resurfacing after comedian Hannibal Buress referenced them in a standup set. Predictably, the Internet responded like the Internet. More
In the past few years, Hannibal Buress has gone from playing clubs like Great Scott to headlining the Wilbur Theatre, which he will do for two shows on Saturday night. He has earned the praise of Louis CK, who cited him in a Reddit interview on a short list of comedians who make him laugh (it was two names, Buress and Zach Galifianakis). And his offbeat point of view and laidback delivery have led him to writing gigs on “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock,” working in front of the camera on “The Eric Andre Show” and “Broad City,” and doing voiceovers for the new animated FX series “Chozen.” His “Gibberish Rap” was a standout bit at the Oddball Curiosity and Comedy Festival in September on a bill that was headlined by Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords, and his new special, “Hannibal Buress: Live From Chicago” debuts on Comedy Central May 29. We caught up with him earlier this week by phone. More
Daylight savings time is perhaps the greatest holiday of the year because it provides more inspiration for late-night rocking. No longer will you suffer from cabin fever and continue having to live life as a shut-in square. Embrace the daylight, open up to the world, and rock! More
