  • Hannibal Buress adds a handful of pancake batter to a burger at Camellia Grill in an unaired pilot for Unemployable.

Comedian Hannibal Buress starred on his late-night Comedy Central series Why? With Hannibal Buress this summer, but last year the stand-up comic and actor (Broad City, The Eric Andre Show) filmed a sort of reality TV pilot in Louisiana in which she tries out jobs he's completely unqualified to do — milking goats at a goat farm, telling fortunes in Jackson Square, and working the line, terribly, at Camellia Grill in the Riverbend. Buress shared Unemployable's unaired pilot, which intersperses his stand-up with his narrated attempts to work.

"I was excited about it so 2 days after we submitted, I announced that it was picked up for 10 episodes," he wrote on Tumblr. "It wasn’t picked up for 10 episodes but I felt like putting it out into the universe. That didn’t work out but television is made to be seen so here it is."

(Bonus: look for New Orleans comics Cassidy and Mickey Henehan as shocked-looking diners.)
