Local Boy Makes Like Tina Fey...Hannibal Buress to Write for SNL


Hannibal Buress just got a job upgrade. Now he can fly in the plane.

Thanks to Steve Heisler and The Decider for covering Saturday Night Live's recent hiring of Chicago bred Hannibal Buress to its writing team.  Hannibal makes frequent trips home from NYC to perform around town, so be sure to head out to see him next time he's in town.  Ask him what Seth Meyers smells like; he lives in New York and will consider no topic too odd.

Hannibal isn't the only Chicago affiliated comic to make his way into the SNL fold this season; improviser Pat O'Brien was signed as a cast member a few weeks ago.

Cameron's Note:  For more info, including Hannibal's reaction, check out standup comic, producer and radio host Brian Babylon's recent interview with the man himself, as posted to
