How Hannibal Buress Dealt With His SNL-Bashing Cousin


Here’s how Hannibal Buress, former SNL writer and current 30 Rock writer, dealt with a smartass cousin who was shitting on his former place of employment: “I go to my family’s for the holidays, and my teenage cousin talks shit about my comedy. And I know I shouldn’t let it get to me, because I’m an adult. But he says things like, ‘Nobody’s watching SNL.’ And I find myself defending SNL to a 16-year-old with no money. And I’m thinking of how I can really get to him: Okay, I’ll accuse him of masturbating. He can’t handle being accused of jacking off. I feel really petty about it.”
