Hannibal Buress Talks Cosby-Related Death Threats, Bieber Roast on 'Kimmel'

19 March 2015 6:39 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's weird receiving a death threat from a male bodybuilder/stripper on Facebook, but as comedian Hannibal Buress cracked on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday, it's even weirder when you have a mutual friend.

Buress brought up this unique threat while chatting with Jimmy Kimmel about the aftermath of his viral stand-up set, which rekindled the controversy surrounding Bill Cosby's numerous allegations of rape. While Buress steered clear of bringing the comedian down even further, he giddily recounted asking his buddy to tell his friend to stop saying he's going to kill him. »

You remember comedian Hannibal Buress don’t you? The guy who’s responsible for Bill Cosby getting all kinds of grief? Well, he’s the one who everyone says is the next biggest thing to hit comedy in decades, and he’s already signed to various TV development deals, first with ABC, for a cop comedy show, which we reported about back on Dec. 2012 (Here) and then a multi-platform deal with Comedy Central, which Tambay reported about two years ago (Here). But there hasn’t been much news since either of those projects was announced, other than his co-hosting Adult Swim’s "The Eric Andre Show," and as a regular on Comedy Central’s "Broad City."

Comedy Central has given a nod to an eight-episode half-hour series starring comedian Hannibal Buress.

“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.

Buress has been a series regular on Comedy Central’s “Broad City” and the co-host of Adult Swim’s “The Eric Andre Show,” currently in its third season. He has written for “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock,” and appeared in the film “Neighbors.”

Dive into the murkier depths of late night TV with some of the finest quality weird available from the folks behind Too Many Cooks

Has watching Too Many Cooks 108 times left you feeling empty and craving more? After experiencing the 80s-sitcom-inspired gore-heavy fever dream, are you one of the many out there still experiencing symptoms of boredom when faced with standard-issue primetime TV fare, disgust at unnecessaries like plot and likable characters, as well as a deep-seated need to re-watch Alf and Adventures Of The Galaxy Rangers?

Jimmy Kimmel's head subjected to microphone, lice test on 'The Eric Andre Show'

8 January 2015 10:50 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

If you are a celebrity who ventures onto The Eric Andre Show for an interview, things may get a little uncomfortable. (Or for Lauren Conrad, a lot uncomfortable.) But Jimmy Kimmel is a professional comedian who surely can handle any situation that a fellow late-night talk show host throws his way. Let's see how he does in this exclusive clip from Friday night's episode (Jan. 9, 12:15 a.m., Adult Swim), as our boom mic operator gets a little too close for comfort and sidekick Hannibal Buress administers a lice test. »
