Movie review: Hannibal Buress: Comedy Camisado

Comedian Hannibal Buress contemplates the checking of identification, steroids, zipper etiquette and Bill Cosby in this hour long stand-up show.

Hannibal takes an interesting look at a variety of topics, then adds a truck load of sarcasm. His perspective on some topics may be unusual but the logic usually fits and definitely supports his comedy routine. While he does elicit some laughs, he doesn't quite land some of his jokes and at times it appears he thinks he is funnier than the audience. A bit more energy from Buress, or a better audience, might make this one more interesting.

Stand-up comedy does require acting, but it is hard to tell what is actually acting by the performer. Buress is okay and does deliver some emotion but feels inconsistent, probably because he is trying to support the comedy with emotion.

Camera work and background was simple but okay. Dialogue was decent with some interesting bits. Sound was solid.

While Buress does deliver some laughs, there aren't a lot of belly laughs in this one and definitely some slow moments. Energy feels inconsistent and from what we have heard, Buress usually does better than what is seen here. Those who like dry or low energy stand-up comedy should enjoy this one. Those wanting serious laughter may want to find something better.

With plenty of foul language and adult topics, this should be fine for older teens and above.
