Bill Burr is an American stand-up comedian, actor, filmmaker, and podcaster. He has released multiple stand-up comedy specials, most notably Why Do I Do This? (2008), Let It Go (2010), You People Are All the Same (2012), I’m Sorry You Feel That Way (2014), Walk Your Way Out (2017), Paper Tiger (2019), and Live at Red Rocks (2022). He received a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album nomination for Paper Tiger, and a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series nomination for the dark comedy series Immoral Compass (2021–present). In 2017, Rolling Stone ranked Burr No. 17 in their “50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time”.
Burr also created, co-wrote, and voiced the lead character in the Netflix animated sitcom F Is for Family (2015–2021). His other notable acting roles include appearing in various sketches in the second season of Chappelle’s Show, Patrick Kuby in the AMC series Breaking Bad (2011–2013), Migs Mayfeld in the Disney+ series The Mandalorian (2019–present), and Ray Bishop in the film The King of Staten Island (2020). He has hosted the twice-weekly Monday Morning Podcast since 2007 and co-founded the All Things Comedy network in 2012.
Burr has been referred to as a “comedian’s comedian” by observers of the American stand-up comedy circuit.
Rolling Stone magazine called Burr “the undisputed heavyweight champ of rage-fueled humor”. Burr often portrays himself as “that loud guy in the bar” with “uninformed logic”. In an interview with The Boston Globe, Burr stated, “I’m the ‘dude, bro’ guy.” According to the Montreal Gazette, Burr is “a cynic and a contrarian who has never paid any heed to political correctness”. The New York Times in 2013 called Burr “one of the funniest, most distinctive voices in the country for years”. His set typically spans an array of topics ranging from his childhood to sex robots to how much he loves his dog. When he does touch on a cringe-worthy subject, his style lends him the ability to anticipate and even toy with the crowd’s reaction. Burr will stand there, casually leaning one arm on the mike stand, a mischievous grin on his face, acting like the loud guy at a bar.
Burr has cited Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Bill Cosby, Sam Kinison, and Patrice O’Neal as the five greatest stand-up comedians of all time.
