Dubai’s legendary largesse provided much of the content for a low-key but suitably amusing second night of the Dubai Comedy Festival on Friday. The headliner, Chicago-born Hannibal Buress, praised the big paycheque he got for the gig and noted: “It’s the first time someone tried to hard-sell me an underwater apartment.” The evening’s location, which had been moved from a huge purpose-built venue to the more intimate 414-seat Meyana Theatre at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, provided lots of fodder for the comic’s hour-long set.
