Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse welcomes audiences into its cozy theater-restaurant hybrid with open arms to enjoy national and international talents. Sweeping September with a fertile broom of bristling jokes, comedian Hannibal Buress takes the stage for three nights of unfiltered hilarity, transmogrifying frowns with disarming charisma, a reposed demeanor, and the timing of a safe-cracker with a necklace of sports watches. Chicago native Buress has burrowed himself in the ear-homes of millions with his winning humor and notable work as a writer on comedy mainstays such as Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. His unpredictable standup routine is prop-free, striking a nerve instead with relatable observational humor delivered with deadpan precision. Now is the best time to catch Hannibal's act before his rising star floats away like Galileo’s soufflé.
