Hannibal Buress' new show "Why? With Hannibal Buress" premiers tonight at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central. Its potpourri of stand-up bits, sketches and man-on-the-street segments already have many anticipating some "Comedian Finds Perfect Way to Explain Topic” headline iterations.
In the weeks leading up to today, Buress has gone to town with a slew of tantalizingly funny promos for his show, including a low-budget Shark Week act and a mock "Daily Show" audition. And that's a good thing, too. Because it looks like NBC hasn't been so generous with airing his promos.
Mashable recently unearthed a handful of promos that were "banned" by the network for undisclosed reasons -- (too much murder-talk?) -- and were slated to run in Los Angeles and Chicago during "Hannibal."
You know, his namesake-rival.
In the promos, Buress promises that there will be "way" less murder in "Why?" than in the cannibal drama, which is currently seeking a new launch pad after being shut down by Amazon and Netflix.
