Fans of Hannibal Buress will now be seeing him a little more on TV. Comedy Central revealed yesterday that they will air an 8 episode talk series starring Hannibal as he looks to answer a few questions.
“Why? With Hannibal Buress” will feature the comic “answering the burning questions on his mind through stand-up, filmed segments, man-on-the-street interviews and special in-studio guests,” the Viacom-owned cable network said in a statement. Each episode will be shot in front of a studio audience and tape in the same week it airs. “Hannibal kept asking us ‘why’ so we just told him to go find out and we’ll air it,” said Kent Alterman, president of content development and original programming at Comedy Central.
