You may have seen comedian Maria Bamford recently as a guest star on Louie (fX). She's got recurring roles on the re-booted Arrested Development (Netflix), Tim & Eric: Awesome Show and Check It Out (both Adult Swim). Maria, a Duluth, Minn. native, is the first female comic to have two half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials. Movie producer Judd Apatow (Anchorman, Knocked Up) has said of Maria, "I've seen a lot of comics and it takes a lot to make me laugh really hard. And she definitely makes me laugh super hard."
Hannibal Buress has made prime-time appearances on Louie and on 30 Rock, and he's worked as a writer for 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live. Chris Rock says Hannibal is "the funniest young comic [he's] seen in years." Hannibal released his debut comedy album, My Name Is Hannibal, in 2010. His latest Comedy Central special is Hannibal Buress: Animal Furnace.
