Hannibal w/ Mario and Alvin at his 30th birthday party...
Hannibal

COME AND SEE A SPECIAL EDITION OF COMEDY AT THE KNITTING FACTORY. ON SUNDAY FEBRUARY 24TH WE MOVE THE SHOW INTO THE BACK ROOM. THERE WILL STILL BE GREAT COMICS BUT THE BACKROOM HAS BETTER TECH AND A PROJECTOR THAT ALLOWS US TO SHOW PORNOGRAPHY WHENEVER THERE'S A LULL IN THE SHOW. WE HAVE TO CHARGE MONEY. IT'S 5 BUCKS IN ADVANCE. THAT'S NOT A LOT OF MONEY. THAT'S ONE NAKED JUICE OR A NICKLE BAG OF WEED. (FROM THAT TIME IN OUR LIVES WHEN YOU COULD GET A BAG OF WEED FOR 5 BUCKS.) I DIGRESS. COME CHECK IT OUT. THERE WILL BE SOME OTHER PEOPLE ON THE SHOW. IT'LL BE FUN. SALUTATIONS.
That's a message from Knitting Factory's Sunday Night Comedy host Hannibal Buress. Some of those other people include Todd Barry and Michael Che, and as Hannibal mentioned above, this Sunday's (2/24) show is five bucks and tickets are on sale now.

UPDATE: Hannibal himself chimed in in the comments: "We're trying to make the transition into the backroom. We're going to try it out monthly. Todd Barry had to reschedule so he won't be on the show on Sunday."

In other news, Hannibal Buress recently turned 30 which was celebrated at Knit in November with Prince Paul DJing, and appearances from Action Bronson, Spongebob, Mario, Alvin Chipmunk and others. Video of that below...

Todd Barry has done that show multiple times. Why is this one so special?

I liked what Hannibal said about Tracy Morgan at ATP this past year

He looks like he's having a blast. I'm glad.

Getting old is really not a downside, think of it as a game, you are leveling up every year and you gain more skills like super mario.
