Hannibal Buress’s Unemployable Pilot Released

Way back when, Comedy Central ordered a pilot of Hannibal Buress’s show Unemployable. It was never picked up. Hannibal was recently allowed to release the episode.

The premise is that Hannibal has never had a job other than comedy before, so he tries out a bunch of odd jobs to see how truly unemployable he is. Sort of like Dirty Jobs, but less dirty and more funny. Honestly, I think the show could be better given Hannibal’s awesome sense of humor. It doesn’t really play to his strengths and I can see why Comedy Central didn’t pick it up. But it is a fun 20 minutes with some funny editing. People love Hannibal. And he’s from Chicago, like me! Check it out!

Nathan For You Season 3 Premiers Tonight

Nathan for You starring Nathan Fielder is one of my favorite shows on television. It’s one of the smartest comedy shows I’ve seen. Fielder serves as a business consultant to small businesses offering hilarious advice and following through on elaborate plans to make money in the dumbest of ways.

If you don’t know the show, you might have heard of “Dumb Starbucks,” which was an idea that Fielder executed on the show.

Fielder has perfect timing and an uncanny ability to make people trust him when they definitely shouldn’t. Check out this clip from the show where he interviews at a law firm and every word he says is decided by a seven-year-old.
