#753 Hannibal Buress
Who doesn’t like Hannibal Buress these days, right now in top form and crushing it on stand up and guest appearances in Broad City, Eric Andre Show, Jim Gaffigan, however, not his own show Why? with Hannibal Buress. That fact doesn’t diminish my love for this guy’s stand up.
The Joe Rogan Experience has been on since 2009 and is considered one of the founding voices of casual interview podcasting. With 11 million listeners he is doing something right. In this episode Joe Rogan comes right out and asks Hannibal about the Bill Cosby controversy as his first question. Hannibal has no qualms and answers easily and their conversation moves effortlessly from topic to topic such as ordering Hotel Porn, Amy Schumer controversy and Joke construction. Joe Rogan is always interested in understanding structures, structure of events, structure of motivations and human psyches. I must be like minded because I appreciate this but it is not everyone’s cup of tea.
Some comedy interview podcasts are going for funny, some are going for celebrity and some are going for background. Joe Rogan is going for exploration. Don’t look for funny Ha Ha in the interview but it is informative, broad in scope and went in interesting tangents.
