The hilarious comedian that is Bill Burr is set to perform at the Modell Lyric on October 18 for one night only. A second show has been added for the night after the 7:30pm performance sold out. Burr was born near Boston, Massachusetts where he didn’t exactly perform well in school, even though he insists that he applied himself. That didn’t prevent him from achieving worldwide fame as one of the best stand-up comedians on the circuit, however. Having first found recognition for his role on Dave Chappelle’s show, Burr developed his own style of logic that earned him regular guest spots with the likes of Jimmy Fallon and Conan O’Brien.
This year, Bill will feature in a movie, ‘The Front Runner’ alongside Hugh Jackman. Later in 2018, Netflix will show the third season of Burr’s animated hit show ‘F is For Family’, which features Burr, Justin Long, and Laura Dern as The Murphys. The first season made its debut on December 18, 2015, with the second season debuting on May 30, 2017.
While Burr continues to enjoy immense success as a stand-up comedian, he’s not been shy about his love for film and television. A number of his appearances have been bit-roles but ‘F is For Family’ is very much a Bill Burr project. It isn’t difficult to understand why he chose an animated show for his first television vehicle, considering the success of shows like ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘Family Guy’. Animated shows have long enjoyed a relationship with comedy. You can go all the way back to Hannah-Barbera cartoons like ‘The Flintstones’ and ‘Top Cat’. Both have recently appeared in Halifax commercials, and Top Cat has been featured in numerous video games like ‘Top Cat: The Video Game’ and ‘Top Cat’ slot. The latter is accessible from Party Casino with bonuses detailed on this webpage. Somehow, we can’t see Bill Burr rebooting ‘Top Cat’ any time soon.
Burr’s first ever hour-long special, ‘Why Did I Do This?’ was recorded in 2008 in New York. His ‘Let It Go’ special took place in San Francisco before being given its Comedy Central premiere in September 2010. ‘You People Are All The Same’ premiered on Netflix in 2012 and, two years later, ‘I’m Sorry You Feel That Way’ was recorded in Atlanta, a black and white recording, which is unusual for today’s comedy specials. Burr’s fifth and latest hour-long special ‘Walk Your Way Out’ premiered last year on Netflix. He also appeared in an episode of the second season of Crashing, with the episode named after him.
Burr appeared in two seasons of the hit AMC show ‘Breaking Bad’, playing a character by the name of Patrick Kuby. He also made an appearance in 2013’s The Heat as Mark Mullins.
Burr is married to screenwriter, producer, and director Nia Hill who he tied the knot with in 2013. They have a one-year-old daughter called Lola. Burr is also a drummer, routinely performing alongside The Goddamn Comedy Jam. He’s a licensed helicopter pilot and enjoys baking, with pie crust being his specialty.
