Comedian Hannibal Buress called in to Radio From Hell today to talk about his upcoming performance at the Oddball Comedy Festival.
Tell us about the Oddball Comedy Festival
It’s the second year of the Oddball Tour, our first time in Salt Lake City, but it’s a big tour. We have Louie CK, Sarah Silverman, I can’t remember all of them in Salt Lake, and it changes every city. Jeff Wilson and Live Nation Comedy just had the idea to have a big comedy tour at these outdoor amphitheater. It hasn’t been done before, and it’s been really cool, very different and very exciting.
What’s comedy like in the day time in an outdoor amphitheater?
It’s different when it’s day time. If it’s good comedians and the crowd gets into it, then it can be great doing comedy in the day time. It gets a little darker as the Main Stage starts. Ideally you want it to be darker when you’re doing comedy. If you’re doing dirty jokes people may not want to laugh at it in the day time because they feel more visible and people can see them, but it still works. If people are up for having a good time, it doesn’t matter if it’s sunlight or darkness.
