If Hannibal Buress’ “secret” audition tape for the Daily Show is to be believed, the comedian is not at all cut out for late-night comedy. He flubs lines, slouches with his feet on the desk, and is shocked to find out the show films every day. “Do you think Barack Obama’s secretly a germophobe, and just fighting through it every day?” Buress wonders.
Of course, this is all just promotion for his new show, Why? With Hannibal Buress, which premieres Wednesday. Here’s hoping that, like Buress’ failed Daily Show attempt, it features a segment called “Moment of Ben.”
