Hannibal Burress, the Lenny Bruce of grocery store and moustache humor, isn’t prone to half-steppin’, as evidenced by not only the glorious, extended recording of his brilliantly-titled Comedy Central special “Animal Furnace,” but also by the release of the extra-super-glorious, limited edition vinyl on Stand Up! Records. We’ve got your silver vinyl on order with just 300 in stock, along with variants to the tune of black and mustard; black, silver, and mustard; and a mysterious “happy accident” combo (to be released only at special engagements, so don’t bother wheedling). And as far as we’re concerned, every last one of them is solid gold.
Rolling, at his signature pace and in his singular cadence, from the delicate act of introducing your ex on stage (without using her real name in the joke for years to come) to the topics allowed for discussion with those sporting handlebar moustaches, from the emotional rollercoaster that is the airplane bathroom to northern European rape statistics and their proper chronological deployment, and from the reasonability of Odd Future lyrics to why Young Jeezy should stick to his day job, Burress shows, in his second full-length record, why he’s shot to the top of everyone’s Awesome Comics of Today lists, and he’s not coming down. (Those are probably a thing, and if they are, you know as well as we do that Hannibal Burress is on them.) He’s handled bombs, he’s diversified entire college campuses, he’s gotten his goatee brushed, and Hannibal Burress is set to tell all—we suggest you listen.
