Onstage, comedian Hannibal Buress delivers his act in a relaxed monotone that belies the non sequiturs and bizarre fantasies that comprise it. A bit that begins, "I wanna kick a pigeon" spirals out into a consideration of the reasons that he shouldn't indulge that desire (concluding that the Post would run the front page headline, "Black Dudes are Kicking Pigeons").
Originally from Chicago, the 26 year-old Buress accumulated a series of accolades in his hometown (including Time Out magazine's "Funniest Person in Chicago" in 2007) before moving to New York. He has since appeared on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Comedy Central's Live at Gotham stand-up series and can be seen next February in the documentary The Awkward Kings of Comedy.
Here, Hannibal gives us his five favorite movie roles performed by stand-up comedians.
