Hannibal Buress 

Wednesday, Nov 13 2013

Hannibal Buress is a hot-right-now comedian, once described by Chris Rock as a less-disgusting hypothetical spawn of Steven Wright, Mos Def, and Dave Chappelle. The award-winning comedian and writer just signed a deal with the Comedy Central network for a new one-hour special and a recurring role on the upcoming show Broad City. His stand-up style can be characterized as laid-back, absurd, intelligent, and real real funny. The New York Times said he hits the mark between "cerebral and swagger," a description that no fans of his stand-up would dispute. He's smart, he's cool, he's self-aware, and he's funny. As co-host on The Eric Andre Show, Buress serves as the perfect foil to higher-strung yet just as weird Eric Andre. Take advantage of the chance to see Buress before he totally blows up and starts selling out arenas.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
