For the first time ever, Comedy Central Live is expanding and holding a SummerStage event in the outer boroughs in addition to the annual “Comedy Central Park” event in Central Park. The inaugural show, Comedy Central Live Presents: Hannibal Buress, will take place in Brooklyn and also feature comedians Kevin Barnett and Josh Rabinowitz. This marks the sixth consecutive year the network has participated with SummerStage.
Cool, confident and intelligent, Hannibal Buress is one of the hottest comedians on the scene, he has earned both the honor of performing at the Montreal “Just For Laughs” Festival and the well-earned respect of his peers, who regard him as one of the brightest young talents to emerge from Chicago. A natural storyteller who can captivate a room with his words alone, Buress generates huge laughs with the laidback, quirky observations that have become his trademark style. Recently, Buress opened for Aziz Ansari at the “South Beach Comedy Festival” in March.
Kevin Barnett’s credits include appearances on Comedy Central, CollegeHumor.com and a panelist on MTV’s #FAIL. He can also be seen in the independent film, How to Follow Strangers and comedian Mike Birbiglia’s feature film Sleepwalk With Me. Barnett performed at the “Just For Laughs Comedy Festival” in Montreal and a co-host one of the best podcasts in New York, The Roundtable of Gentlemen.
Josh Rabinowitz began performing stand-up comedy in Philadelphia while attending the University of Pennsylvania. Since graduating, he has moved to New York City. His credits include CollegeHumor.com, FX’s Louie, performing at the Breakout Artist Series at The New York Comedy Festival and opening for comedians Mike Birbiglia, Bo Burnham, John Mulaney and Rhys Darby,
