Hannibal Buress 

When: Wed., May 25 2011

Writer, actor, and all-around stand-up guy Hannibal Buress performs two shows tonight in Reddstone's intimate upstairs lounge as part of his recently launched My Name Is Hannibal tour. A native Chicagoan, the comic presently resides in N.Y.C., where his day gig involves working with Tina Fey as part of the writing crew for the Emmy Award-winning 30 Rock. (Look for him in occasional cameos as a homeless guy.) As for his stand-up routine, Buress says it depends on the crowd, although he is likely to talk about music. "I'm not a musician, but I've done some rapping, and I am always intrigued by the lyrics," he says. Just don't expect him to wear out his welcome. "Generally, I'm on about 60 minutes, which seems just about right: People don't want to see too much of me!" Tonight's shows are being presented by Chucklefck, the production arm of local comic Ramon Rivas II's burgeoning comedy empire. Along with Jim Tews, Rivas will be opening for Buress' 7:30 p.m. show. The 9:30 show will kick off with comics Bill Squire and Mike Polk. Rivas says the $15 tickets are selling fast; snag yours at brownpapertickets.com/event/172467. Reddstone is at 1261 West 76th St. — Cicora
