Hannibal Buress Gives a Master Class in How to Shut Down a Heckler

Just as he is when he’s performing stand-up, attempting to woo Ilana on Broad City, or failing fantastically at playing the drums, Hannibal Buress showed an extraordinary ability to be very chill while shutting down a heckler recently. During a Delaware stop in on his ongoing tour, a series of interruptions from an audience member brought about three minutes’ worth of some solid, biting commentary from the comedian, all delivered in his trademark laid-back manner.

“Why can’t you hold your liquor?” he muses. “Actually, I want to give you the excuse of being drunk, and not just being a shitty, obnoxious person.”
