Hannibal Buress Destroys Heckler: ‘You Want Attention, You Gotta Work for It’

Comedian and Broad City star Hannibal Buress took on a drunken heckler at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, Delaware Saturday night. What followed was a intensely satisfying three-minute evisceration.

“Why can’t you hold your liquor?” Buress asked. “Actually, I want to give you an excuse to be drunk, and not just a shitty, obnoxious human being. I’ve done shit when I was drunk. Not interrupt a show that 1,100 other people are watching. When I’m drunk I like to ruin one or two people’s nights.”

“You have a bigger need for attention that I do,” Buress continued. “At least I worked at it and got on television. You can’t even parlay this into any pussy! You can’t hang out in front video, saying ‘Hey, that was me, yelling like a jackass. Wanna have a drink’?…If you want attention, you have to do what I did and work really hard for thirteen years.”
