CONAN: You have had a lot of success and it's growing and you are starting to get, I would imagine you are starting to get noticed by people from your standup.
Starting to get recognized.
Have you had that where you have people recognize you?
CONAN: It's exciting.
Like do you have V.I.P.'s recognize you?
HANNIBAL: Yeah, one guy told me Scarlett Johansson was a gig -- big fan.
I thought, why didn't she just tell me? I'm easy to reach.
I didn't know what to do with that information.
Like, what the next step?
Two months after that I see her at a club and I said hey, man, introduce me, I heard she's a fan but don't tell her, just introduce me regular style.
She says Scarlett this is Hannibal, Hannibal this is Scarlett. She says, Hannibal I'm a huge fan of your standup.
I said, thank you, Scarlett, I'm a huge fan of pictures of you.
HANNIBAL: You can't say that to people! You don't say that type of stuff.
CONAN: So what happened?
Did you become friends?
HANNIBAL: No, well, they was real nice.
Two months later in the same club in New York, I turn around, Scarlett Johansson is directly behind me.
CONAN: In line for the bathroom?
HANNIBAL: In line for the bathroom.
so we speak briefly because we're very cool now.
I think most dudes, you're next in line, Scarlett Johansson right behind you, you let her go ahead.
But you know what?
I'm not that dude.
I love you in Avengers, Scarlett. But I still got to pee.
Everybody in this world got to pee.
CONAN: You held your ground?
I would have let her go first.
HANNIBAL: I was thinking maybe in her mind she was thinking, Hannibal didn't let me go ahead while most punk ass dudes would have.
I should marry this dude. You never how women's minds work.
CONAN: You never know.
HANNIBAL: I was pretty drunk that night I was pretty faded and whenever she would walk past me at the club I would go, Scarlett! Scarlett!
I don't think it with work out with us.
But you live and you learn.
ANDY: You should have learned that in seventh grade! Scarlett!
HANNIBAL: That didn't work.
But I was just, you know -- alcohol.
CONAN: You can end any story that went badly with "alcohol.
Is this true that you got a show?
I heard the exciting news you got a show picked up on comedy central.
Is that right?
HANNIBAL: I have a pilot for comedy central but they haven't picked it up but I just said that they did.
CONAN: You didn't just say they did.
You tweeted I am happy to announce that comedy channel has picked up my series "unemployable" for 10 episodes.
Did you make that up?
HANNIBAL: I didn't make it up.
I just kind of put my dreams out into the world.
CONAN: Did you just send out that one tweet?
HANNIBAL: Well, you're supposed to follow up on your dreams.
I just wanted to put good energy out there.
CONAN: You put up another one?
That is fantastic.
HANNIBAL: It's good energy.
CONAN: I like -- that's great.
It's not lying, not deceiving.
HANNIBAL: It's just saying, I see the future and it involves you all picking up my show or let's make it weird.
CONAN: And if you get in any legal trouble, you can just say, "alcohol."
