Unlike almost any other famous comedian, Broad City’sHannibal Burress is known for being an utterly affable guy—really. No bitterness, no bluster, no misanthropy. In fact, Hannibal is so easy-going, he’s able to maintain a big, crinkle-eyed smile even while eviscerating a heckler. Only Hannibal Buress can exude an unrelenting sense of good cheer while calling a drunk heckler a “shitty, obnoxious person” and a “social terrorist.” Only Hannibal Buress can grin endearingly while chastising his antagonist as a “goofy white dude in a shitty tee shirt” who smells weird. Only Hannibal Buress can deliver searing insults while incorporating a graceful lash of self-deprecation: “Sir, you have a bigger need for an attention that I do.” Hannibal, you are an artist; Nameless Drunk Buffoon, go home, and stop attending shows we might actually go to.
