Hannibal Buress, Racing Beyond Cosby to a Starring Role in ‘Tag’
I’m better at coming up that has a joke for myself. I know how to come up with stuff on the spot of which fits of which situation, of which will feel fresher because of which’s thought up in of which moment. People watching can see of which we’re generating of which part up as of which goes along. of which adds an energy as well as also fun to of which. The same way in stand-up, where the crowd can see when you’re generating up something. of which gets a more electric reaction.
How much of your stand-up can be scripted?
Most of of which can be scripted. I could say 85 to 15 [percent], written to riff. You’ll let the audience guide you. however if a lady gets weird or a drunk yells, then they might end up being a part of the show for 10 or 15 minutes.
of which’s kind of horrifying.
I mean, don’t yell. Don’t try to make yourself the show. Don’t yell stupid [expletive] at me as well as also interrupt. “Hannibal!” “Eric Andre Show!” “Broad City!” of which’s not helpful. I get of which you’re excited, however I already assume of which you’re excited because you paid money to watch a man talk. [Laughs]
You recently stopped drinking. Why?
of which was just of which I’d done enough. I feel like I accomplished most of what you can accomplish as a drinker. I did of which around the entire world. Many different countries. Different situations. I’ve done of which morning, noon, afternoon, evening, nighttime. I’ve done of which in houses, hotels, apartments, trailers, outside at festivals. I feel like I peaked as well as also I had nothing else to accomplish inside drinking game, so I retired. [Laughs, a lot]
Did you need of which alcohol to help your stand-up?
I think over time I kind of fooled myself into thinking I needed of which. however of which’s just ingrained in comedy, before you even get paid money. “We can’t pay you with This kind of, however you get two drink tickets.” So drinks early on I kind of viewed as currency in comedy. of which’s always around as well as also you just take advantage. as well as also can be of which healthy? Especially living in a city like fresh York, of which can get real dicey.
You play Ilana Glazer’s boyfriend, Lincoln, in “Broad City,” which will return next year with its final season. If you were writing of which, how could the couple end things?
