Hannibal Buress Explains The Premature Comedy Central Tweet And How He Blew It With Scarlett Johansson

By: 03.27.14

Comedian and friend of UPROXX Hannibal Buress dropped by Conan last night to promote his new standup special, and he came armed with the kind of hilarious anecdotes we’ve come to expect from him. Two bits, both featured in the clip above, stood out:

– The story of the time Hannibal happened to bump into Scarlett Johansson shortly after learning that she’s a fan (and, more vitally, how he quickly stifled any chance he might have had with her).

– The fascinating thought process that motivated Hannibal to prematurely tweet that Comedy Central had given him his own show. Let’s just say it wasn’t an honest mistake.
