“If Steven Wright, Mos Def and Dave Chappelle had a baby, that would be disgusting, but it would sound like Hannibal Buress. The funniest young comic I’ve seen in years.” – Chris Rock
“Hannibal is incredibly funny with a smart, unique style and I am proud to be his father.” – Jim Gaffigan
“I haven’t heard this album, and I never will. But I’ve seen Hannibal do comedy, and if the CD is a recording of him doing comedy, then it’s probably worth getting. I mean, I still won’t get it, but you can. And you might like it.” – Todd Barry
“Hannibal is funny on stage and off stage and right in between, too.” -Demetri Martin
“Hannibal’s debut album is hilarious. Also hilarious – Aziz Ansari’s debut album Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening, now available in stores EVERYWHERE!” – Aziz Ansari
“One of the best joke writers I’ve ever seen. He’s one of the few performers I’ve come across that creates such electricity in a room that I think ‘this guy is going to be a star FOR SURE.” -Mike Birbiglia, star of What I Should Have Said Was Nothing and author of Sleepwalk With Me and Other Painfully True Stories
