Multi-hyphenate Eshu Tune(aka Hannibal Buress) announces an upcoming show at The Chicago Theatre on Thursday, November 2. A true homecoming for the Chicago native, this will mark his fourth headlining gig at the venue and first since 2018. The show will kick off with a comedy routine which will then be followed by a full music set with his seasoned five-piece band, reflecting Hannibal’s dynamic range as a performer. Tickets are on-sale HERE.

The announcement comes off the heels of Hannibal’s electric performance as his rap alter ego Eshu Tune at Riot Fest earlier this month which received positive coverage from Forbes, Chicago Sun-Times, Block Club Chicago, and more. Over the last few weeks, he has also performed at several venues across the country including Aisle 5 in Atlanta, Music Box in San Diego, and Minglewood Hall in Memphis.

Earlier this year, Eshu Tune debuted a remix for his witty track “Veneers” featuring Danny Brown and Paul Wall. He then kicked off the summer with the release of “I Lift Weights,” which GQ noted as “a must-add to any gym playlist.” In August, Hannibal was featured on Open Mike Eagle’s song “WLFD 32” which Stereogum heralded as “casually great.”

Hannibal also recently hosted the 12th annual A2iM Libera Awards at Town Hall in New York. In addition to hosting, he also performed a 10-minute medley of his songs as Eshu Tune with his five-piece band. Read more via NME HERE.


Hannibal Buress continues to entertain, engage, and enliven audiences as a comedian, writer, podcaster, actor, and rapper under the name of “Eshu Tune.” This multifaceted creator went from grinding at standup open mic nights in his native Chicago to writing for 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live. For the later, he even garnered an EMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Series.” To date, he has headlined six unanimously acclaimed comedy specials, namely My Name Is Hannibal [2010], Animal Furnace [2012], Live from Chicago [2014], Comedy Camisdado [2016], Hannibal Takes Edinburgh [2016], and Miami Nights [2020]. Beyond renown for his co-lead role on Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show and recurring character on Comedy Central’s Broad City, he has appeared in dozens of films and television series. His top 10 movies have notably exceeded $3.2 billion in combined box office gross (which he proudly takes credit for, especially Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: No Way Home). He never strayed too far from music though. Rewinding back to his days at Southern Illinois University, he fashioned himself quite the college battle rapper, while he later co-starred in JAY-Z’s “Moonlight” music video. He jumped into hip-hop headfirst as Eshu Tune. In 2022, he dropped his independent self-titled debut Eshu Tune, posted up millions of streams, collaborated with the likes of Danny Brown and Paul Wall, and incited the applause of everyone from People to Brooklyn Vegan to NME and Passion of the Weiss. Meanwhile, he shared stages with Black Thought of The Roots, Little Brother, Robert Glasper, and Marc Rebillet. Ultimately, there’s nobody quite like Hannibal Buress (or Eshu Tune), and there never will be.
