Comedy Central Announces Details on New Hannibal Buress TV Show

nullYou remember

comedian Hannibal Buress don’t you? The guy who’s responsible for Bill Cosby getting

all kinds of grief?

Well, he’s

the one who everyone says is the next biggest thing to hit comedy in decades,

and he’s already signed to various TV development deals, first with ABC, for a cop

comedy show, which we reported about back on Dec. 2012 (HERE) and then a

multi-platform deal with Comedy Central, which Tambay reported about two years

ago (HERE).

But there hasn’t

been much news since either of those projects was announced, other than his co-hosting Adult Swim’s "The Eric Andre Show," and as a regular on Comedy Central’s "Broad City."

However, that

has all changed. Comedy Central, yesterday, announced that their first show

toplined by Burress, will be "Why? With Hannibal Burress."

Set for 8

episodes, the show will be built around Buress’ talents and unique viewpoints

on modern day issues, which will include stand up routines, man on the street

segments and interviews with guests.

The show

will be taped in front of a live studio audience, and it’s set to premiere this

July on the cable network.
