There is a guy who after 2016 is starting to become one of my favorite comedians and I am talking about Chicago comedian Hannibal Buress. Hannibal in 2016 starred in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, The Angry Birds Movie, The Nice Guys, The Secret Life Of Pets, and towards the end of 2015 he was in Daddy’s Home. One thing that Hannibal definitely did in 2016 that we are checking out for today is his Netflix Original comedy special Hannibal Buress: Comedy Camisado which was filmed at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the special, Hannibal will tackle topics like why in the heck he chose Minneapolis, Lasik eye surgery, going blind and dumb blind people jokes, Is Stevie Wonder really blind?, birthdays after 30 not meaning much, TSA agents, getting carded, proving you are you when you lose your ID, discovering things late, having kids, bad Cosby joke, acting with babies, death threats, Hannibal vs Kevin Hart, steroids, and so much more in this hilarious stand up special.
I heard some people talking negatively at one time about Hannibal’s stand up special and I can’t see why they would. Sure not every joke he has is laugh out loud funny, but his observational comedy skills is off the charts. He has so many amazing jokes in this film like the steroids one he talks about which is in reference to why he hates baseball. He says that steroids made the sport interesting whereas it’s just too boring know. He made a good point as well saying that steroids created father son moments and it made a man on a bicycle rich. One of the other funny moments is that he talks about a topic that is very true in our society. We always go to shows whether it be stand up shows or whatever and we have our cell phones out. Well, he reminds the crowd that it’s going to be on Netflix, but he talks about it and it’s hilarious. He manages to take real life situations and he makes them funny as well as making some outrageously funny jokes. One of his good points as far as his career that you have to listen to is Hannibal vs Kevin Hart and why Kevin gets more jobs than him. It’s hilarious to think, but it’s simple and could be true we don’t know. I definitely recommend the special to anyone looking for someone new to watch or a fan of Hannibal. I am going to give the special an A- for a final grade.
