Hannibal Buress Documentary...


This exceptional documentary (A Week To Kill) came out a few months back, but I'm constantly surprised at how many comedy fans haven't heard of it. So... when I came across this full length version on Vimeo, just had to put it up. The film follows stand up comic Hannibal Buress for the week leading up to the taping of his first hour Comedy Central special. It's probably one of the best documentaries I've seen about a comedians process and has some great behind the scenes footage of the Chicago comedy scene. In fact, I dare say that Chicago and it's colorful characters are almost as much a part of the film as Hannibal Himself. A great watch, it's a bit long at 40 minutes but worth it.
