Hannibal Burress getting his own Comedy Central show. Dope.


Hannibal Burress is snagging his own Comedy Central show. ‘Cause he’s fucking awesome. Pro: we get to watch a┬áHannibal Burress show. Con: maybe this means Lincoln won’t be on Broad City anymore?

The Verge:

Hannibal Burress, the comedian who currently plays well-to-do dentist Lincoln Rice on the critically acclaimed Broad City, just got his own show on Comedy Central. According to The Wrap, the new weekly half-hour series, titled Why? With Hannibal Burress, just got picked up for an eight-episode run that will air this July. The show will involve Burress addressing topical issues through standup, filmed segments, and on-camera interviews.

Burress’ star has been on the rise in the past year, due in no small part to his role on Broad City and his well-received comedy special Hannibal Buress Live From Chicago, which aired last May. In addition, the comedian struck a chord last year after his comments against Bill Cosby prompted a torrent of sexual assault accusations against the Cosby Show star that continues to this day.

July is lookin’ good! For burgers. Hannibal burgers.
