Parents need to know that Why? With Hannibal Buress is a comedy sketch series starring Broad City's deadpan Buress as himself. It features some strong sexual innuendo, bleeped curses, comic violence, and references to actual violent acts. Some sketches feature drinking.
Is It Any Good?
The series combines a variety of formats in hopes of capitalizing on Buress' unique deadpan comedy style while pulling in the laughs. Unfortunately, though there are some funny moments, most jokes leave you feeling like they just aren't going anywhere.
You can't help but like Buress, whose relaxed banter sometimes reveals some sharp-witted insight. The problem is that he doesn't take it any further, nor is there anything thematic that ties it to anything else featured on the show. The result is a series that feels underdeveloped and may leave you wondering why it's on the air.
