Hannibal Buress is excited to be back doing shows. But the energy has been weird, he says, especially at the outdoor, socially distanced drive-in shows that he started doing this summer.

He can't feel the audience quite so much, he told LAist. He's done plenty of outdoor gigs before, but doing shows where everyone's either confined to their cars or getting up on the roof means those laughs aren't necessarily making their way to his ears up on stage.

This Saturday, he's bringing a big stadium comedy show to life at the Rose Bowl, complete with LED screens, a live band, as well as musician Thundercat doing his own set.
