Season 1 , Ep 101 03/29/14 Views: 61,497

Hannibal Buress saw a concert that inspired him to change how he performs stand-up. (1:27)

I like to--I go to concertswhen I'm not working.

I like going to see music.

Even if it's bad,I take something from it.

I just--I go to a lotof rap shows.

I was in Montreal.

I wanted to seethis funny rapper Riff Raff.

Riff Raffis entertaining to me.

[all cheering]

Also, I had a showin Montreal.

I didn't fly upfor a fucking Riff Raff show,

just to get that straight.

He is entertaining.

Riff Raff really is funny.

His show was funny, 'cause hedidn't--he just played--

his DJ played his musicwith the vocals,

and then he was just up therewith a beer,

chilling,listening to his songs,

and then every nowand then he would come in

and say two words,and then he'd go back.

Basically he got paidto vibe out

to his own music onstage,

which is good workif you can get it.

I mean, it seemed kind ofdisrespectful to his fans,

but nobody seemed to mind.Whatever.

It seemed like a fun wayto approach it.

I want to approach comedy likethat and just play my own shit.

I'm gonna do it now.Hey.

[on recording]So I have a situation

in my apartment right now.

I have a surplus of pickle juicein my apartment.

There's too much pickle juice,

'cause after the picklesare gone,

I don't like throwing outthe pickle juice.

It just feels wasteful.

Right.

[on recording] So latelyI've been dipping my fingers

in the pickle juice...

[with recording] and I flick iton my sandwiches for flavor.

[cheers and applause]

That's a fun way to do comedyright there.

It's way easier.Way easier stuff.
