Comic Hannibal Buress to host ‘The Eric Andre Show’

Chicago-trained comic Hannibal Buress usually plays the role of second banana on Adult Swim’s “The Eric Andre Show.” Tonight, though, he’ll sit behind the desk — eventually. Thanks to the fine folks at Splitsider.com for the heads-up on a recently released clip from tonight’s episode. Buress, as you’ll see below, really tears the joint up.

Obligatory reference: Buress made headlines recently for helping to revive the burgeoning Bill Cosby scandal via remarks he made during a standup set in Philadelphia.

A former writer for “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock,” he honed his skills at Chicago clubs and recently taped a Comedy Central special at the Vic Theatre in Lakeview.
