Hannibal Buress is getting his own weekly half-hour show on Comedy Central and the title, Why, is basically the same as my non-existent memoir. Deadline reports that "the comedian will provide his perspective on each week's zeitgeist-driven topic" on the show, which will also incorporate his stand-up and feature man-on-the-street interviews, as well as guests. This is part of Buress' original deal with Comedy Central that involved his Broad City role, a pilot, stand-up special and tour.
