Hannibal Buress

Yes. Yes, that is his real name. No. No, he is not named after Hannibal Lecter.

Hannibal Buress is a former writer for SNL and 30Rock.  He has played a bum on 30Rock seven times (the picture above was taken during filming).  UPDATE: He was on last night’s (5/3) episode as Rus/Gus, the man in the tin-foil hat. Buress’ first comedy album, My Name is Hannibal, released in 2010, is available on itunes.

I recently listened to the WTF with Marc Maron with Hannibal. He talked about how when he first moved to NYC, his sister kicked him out, so he had to live in hostels, and when he couldn’t afford that, he slept on the F train.  Dang, that is a level of commitment I have never reached.

My favorite part starts at 5:00:
