Hannibal Buress, worth your budget

Many comedians work the college circuit in addition to the comedy clubs across America. It's so difficult to describe how weird the advance press and promotions for clubs (TV, radio and print) can be sometimes, but for colleges, the school newspaper sends out their crackerjack staff of cub reporters. And as Hannibal Buress proved onstage last night, the results can be highly amusing and amazing all at once. For example, this line actually appeared in print to explain why Buress would perform for the students at Eastern Illinois University last month: "Burress (sic) was the most popular comedian in Caponera's price range of $2,000." Of course he was. Of course. But there's so much more. You'll have to hear it from him, though.
