Laneway Presents Hannibal Buress

Hannibal Buress announces his new national stand-up comedy tour, The Hannibal Montanabal Experience, visiting venues across Australia this December. The Hannibal Montanabal Experience follows Hannibal's highly rated third hour-long stand-up special, Comedy Camisado, as well as standout roles in numerous fan-favourite film and television comedies.

Hannibal will take in Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Thursday 1st December and Melbourne’s Hamer Hall on Friday 2nd December for back-to-back All Ages shows, before crossing the country to perform at Perth’s Astor Theatre on Saturday 3rd December. The tour will wrap up at The Tivoli in Brisbane on Monday 5th December. Tickets go on sale at 9am local time, Friday 26th August.

Hannibal Buress is a wildly popular Emmy and Writers Guild of America Award nominated comedian, writer and actor, who is a favourite of fans and critics on big and small screens alike. With appearances in a variety of hit TV shows and feature films under his belt, three enthusiastically well-received hour stand-up specials, and The New York Times lauding him as one of the most “supremely gifted and respected comics around,” Hannibal is emerging as a comedy superstar.

Hannibal is a cast member on the popular Comedy Central series “Broad City”, which is Executive Produced by Amy Poehler and about to shoot its fourth season, and he is the co-host of Adult Swim’s “The Eric Andre Show”, which returned for its fourth season earlier this month. His comedy documentary feature Hannibal Takes Edinburgh is currently streaming on Netflix, and he will appear on the big screen in the upcoming film version of Baywatch and the much-anticipated feature Spider-man: Homecoming. Hannibal has recently notched up blockbuster comedy film credits, appearing in Neighbours and Neighbours 2 starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, as well as the film Daddy’s Home alongside Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. He was also featured in The Nice Guys alongside Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling and the indie film Band of Robbers. On the animation side, Hannibal lent his voice to the films The Secret Life of Pets and Angry Birds. He also co-directed and appeared in hip-hop artist Chance The Rapper’s video ‘NaNa’.

Hannibal’s highly rated second hour-long stand-up special Hannibal Buress Live from Chicago premiered in 2014, with GQ declaring, “He makes us ugly laugh. Hard.” He has written for Saturday Night Live as well as 30 Rock, where he also appeared on-camera as a charismatic homeless man. Hannibal is a regular on the late night TV circuit, with appearances on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, and The Late Late Shaow with James Corden.

Hannibal Buress’ December tour dates will be the first chance for Australian audiences to get up close and personal with the popular comic since his last Australian visit in 2011, which saw him take the stage at Melbourne’s International Comedy Festival. Comedy fans get in quickly, as tickets are sure to sell fast!
