In his newest standup special Animal Furnace, comic and Chicago native Hannibal Buress talks about a 2009 interview he did in the Eastern Illinois University student newspaper in advance of a stand-up gig at the school, criticizing EIU for emphasizing that he was brought in to increase diversity on campus (and stating how much he was paid to appear).
