Hannibal has been hitting the road in smaller cities over the last few months but is about to take his comedy to a new country. He will be traveling to Israel for the first time this June. He recently spoke with news outlet Times Of Israel to share his thoughts on the trip, plans, and more. Read an excerpt of the story below.
Buress, who’s never been to Israel before, had always talked about visiting with his ex-girlfriend, who was born here. He said he’s planning on landing a few days before his June 29 appearance, to “try to focus in on the culture,” he said. “I like to get in and get a feel for the place and go from there.” He will perform at Tel Aviv’s Opera House, just two months before comedian Louis C.K., who’s appearing in Jerusalem in August and added a second show, after the first sold out in minutes.
