Hannibal Buress Interview

Check out this interview  and this article with/about SNL writer/comedian Hannibal Buress in which he discusses writing for SNL, some of his failed sketch ideas ("fedora basketball") and of course his stand-up.

Quote from Seth Meyers -
Meyers, however, says it's tough for any writer during the first year. "I'm in my ninth year and it's still hard. With that said, Hannibal is great at the rewrite table and adds a lot of value to the weekly process. He's also, bar none, the funniest person in pitch on Monday, which is no small task."

For anyone unfamiliar with Buress' stand-up, do yourself a favour and check out his stuff on YouTube.
