Bill Burr is one of the top comedic voices of his generation achieving success in TV and film as well as the live stage. Selling out theaters internationally, Burr’s satirical, often cutting, brand of comedy has earned him the admiration of fans and the respect of his colleagues. On Nov. 11, 2011, Bill received a standing ovation for his sold out show at Carnegie Hall and the following night he received the prestigious Comedian of the Year Award from the Boston Comedy Festival; previous recipients include Steven Wright, Denis Leary and Lewis Black. In addition to his stand-up and acting success, Burr’s “Monday Morning Podcast” is one of the most downloaded comedy podcasts on iTunes.
Burr is a regular guest on “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Conan” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” He can also be seen on AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” FOX’s “The New Girl” and Comedy Central’s ’”Kroll Show.” In addition to his appearances, his third hour-long comedy special, “You People Are All The Same,” premiered on Netflix in August. He can also be seen in the hit comedy “The Heat,” alongside Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.
