Over the weekend, Hannibal Buress had his mic cut off during a comedy set at Loyola University Chicago. According to Consequence of Sound, he’d been on stage for less than 5 minutes before the powers that be decided to pull the plug on the comedian for telling off color jokes about child molestation in the Catholic Church. LUC is a catholic university you see, and they told Hannibal upfront they weren’t going to allow their young, impressionable students be tainted by his filth flying filth. So what’s Hannibal do? He leads with a joke about child diddling priests.
According to COS:
The administration of Loyola University Chicago didn’t take kindly to Buress’ comments, as they cut off his set after just five minutes. Prior to getting the boot, the comedian shared an email he received from the school asking him to refrain from cursing or topics including sexual assault. “Bitch ass old people, I can project,” Buress reportedly said before dropping this whopper: “Y’all fuck kids, right?”
Here’s the projection of the email they sent Hannibal.

I’ve sure he had one look at this, made sure his check had cleared and proceeded to make sure his set would check each and every box. Let’s never forget that Hannibal Buress is not the one. Whether it’s giving the cops an earful in Miami while getting arrested for being drunk and disorderly, gassing the press by sending a proxy to his Spider-Man premiere or dragging Bill Cosby’s skeletons out of the closet onstage, Hannibal’s “rules are for fools” mentality seems to be working for him.
Apparently, after he was cut off there was “an extended 15 minute break” and Hannibal was allowed back on stage to finish his set. No word as to if he kept it clean after that or continued to fart in the general direction of The Man.
