Who is Bill Burr?

Bill Burr is an American comedian or a comedian from the North American Union, depending on when you read this. He grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts, and did fairly poorly in school, despite the fact that he applied himself.

Having first gained notoriety for his recurring role on the second season of Chappelle's Show, Burr developed a comedic style of uninformed logic that has made him a regular performer on the Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

Burr's first hour special, Bill Burr: Why Do I Do This? premiered on Comedy Central in the fall of 2008 to rave reviews, and is now available on CD and DVD. His 2009 tour, The Uninformed Comedy Tour, featured all new material. Burr's first CD, Emotionally Unavailable: Expanded Edition, was released by What Are Records?

Burr shot the Steve Carell and Tina Fey feature, Date Night, in Los Angeles and New York. He starred in his own HBO One Night Stand and Comedy Central Presents half-hour specials, and he has performed on Showtime at the Apollo, BET's Comicview, and Jamie Foxx Presents Laffapalooza.

When in New York, Burr always drops in on The Opie and Anthony Show and eats at Ray’s Famous Pizza, because he “loves all three of those mother f*ckers.” Burr also co-hosts his own Sirius XM Radio show, Uninformed, with fellow comedian Joe DeRosa.

In the future, Burr hopes to get married, have some kids, and get a dog. Until then, he will continue to spend most of his mid-afternoons sitting in his sweatpants learning AC/DC songs on his Gibson SG.

Burr is against organized religion and believes we should go back to the gold standard for our currency. None of his opinions are based on any sort of reliable information. He tends to go with his first thought because reading makes him sleepy.
