    To true comedy fans, Hannibal Buress is one of the most well-respected new stars of the past five years or so. To those unfamiliar with Buress, however, he's now just a guy who called Bill Cosby a rapist. "I've been doing the bit on and off for six months," Buress told Howard Stern. "It was unexpected.
