Hannibal Buress
Hannibal Buress
Hannibal Buress is a comedy writer and performer widely known for having an “irresistible” comedic presence that lands squarely between “cerebral and swagger,” (New York Times). Buress, the 2012 winner of Comedy Central’s award for Best Club Comic, has also been lauded by Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, and Variety. As a stand-up comedian, he’s consistently featured throughout the late-night circuit, including the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and the Late Late show with Craig Ferguson. Also a former staff writer for both SNL and 30 Rock, Buress is the co-host of Comedy Central’s The Eric Andre Show, and appears as a regular “expert” on FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. In addition, his debut comedy CD, My Name Is Hannibal (2010) and his Comedy Central one-hour special, Animal Furnace (2012), were both lavished with praise, each making multiple Top 10 lists. His newest project, the weekly web series Talking to Strangers with Hannibal Buress, features witty, humor-filled conversations between the award-winning comic and top-notch musicians and entertainers. The premiere episode featuring ?uestlove (The Roots) is set to debut Summer 2013. Though perpetually touring, Buress considers New York City, where he hosts a weekly Sunday comedy night at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory, his place of residence. He lives with zero pets and an XBOX 360, and has a cable package with the Starz network but never watches it.

Shortly after graduating from Coney Island USA’s Sideshow School, Adam has become one of the premier sideshow acts in New York City and beyond. Whether it’s bending steel with his bare hands, ripping a phonebook in half or hammering a spike into the center of his face, those watching will no doubt cheer him on with verve, gleefully anticipating the successful completion of the act.

musical guest River City Extension
River City Extension was born restless, curious, and conscious. It is a monster and a gentleman. Formed by singer-songwriter Joe Michelini in the fall of 2007, the band has proved to be an important addition to the development of independent folk music, and has earned the respect of everyone from seasoned punk rockers to Brit-pop legends. After spending years building an invaluable local following as a solo artist, Joe’s moniker became a symbol of hope for musicians in his hometown of Toms River, NJ; like lost souls, the members of River City Extension were drawn to each other. Taking a year and a half to carefully finalize their line-up, the band went into the studio to record their DIY EP, Nautical Sabbatical. The record was self-released on January 1st of 2009, and they had no other option than to hit the road. Be it Joe by himself, with one member, two members, or five, River City Extension toured diligently across the North-East and the Midwest, just hoping that someone would listen to the call of their wild, insatiable need to play, write, feel, and inspire. By the winter of 2010, their dream was beginning to come true.
The band had started to record their full-length album The Unmistakable Man, with no budget, no plan, and a lot of faith. As word began to spread, they found themselves supporting bands like Cake, Robert Randolph, and The Avett Brothers, in and out of their home state. Near the end of production, the band signed a deal with XOXO Records (The Gaslight Anthem, Let Me Run), and shortly there after blasted the press with what would be the new flagship of this venerable Asbury Park punk label. The Unmistakable Man was released on May 11th, 2010 with national distribution and international promise. RCE quickly garnered the attention of important music outlets such as Paste, Spin, and NPR, as well as being validated by timeless international performers such as Glenn Tilbrook of the band Squeeze, who would later make a cameo on the vinyl release of the bands first LP.
