University cuts Hannibal Buress's mic mid-gig

He began his set with a projection of an email that he allegedly received from the Jesuit Catholic school ahead of his performance in which he was told which topics to stay away from according to Loyola's student newspaper, the The Loyola Phoenix.

Comedian Hannibal Buress' mic was cut after making a joke about the Catholic Church's history of child abuse during his Saturday night Colossus performance, attendees said.

The FADER has reached out to representatives for Buress and the school for comment.

In the email from the school, Buress stated, he was asked to refrain from "content about rape, sexual assault, race, sexual orientation/gender.illegal drugs or the use of".

'B****-ass old people, I can project, ' Buress said.

It was this particular comment that led to Buress' mic being cut off.

After having his microphone cut, Buress continued to perform, with the audience quietening down so that he was still audible without the mic.

Leslie Watland, assistant director of Loyola's Department of Programming, which coordinated the Colossus event, told the newspaper that Student Development Administrators made the decisions during the show.

After about 15 minutes offstage, Mr. Buress reportedly returned to a standing ovation from the crowd.

The performance was part of an annual two-night show put on by the university that features a musical act one night, followed by a comedy act, with Buress following up a remarkably affordable solo show from Nick Jonas. "So, although I can see where Loyola is coming from, I think the situation could've been handled a lot better". Show still went on.

After a Twitter user questioned why Buress would take a paid gig and then go against the "guidelines that we're clearly laid out beforehand", the comedian replied: "Or take it and get paid and still do what you want. option 2 sounds more exciting". What's your point here?'

Buress made several references to the debacle during the rest of his set.

Hannibal Buress is the comedian who made a pariah out of comedian Bill Cosby during a 2014 stand-up routine.
