Bill Burr is another East coast comedian who pushes boundaries, and has a unique voice. He talks about a lot of different things (race, women) and defends himself regarding these issues that are viewed as opposite in pop culture. As a white guy, he's figured out a funny way to talk about white guilt and 'gold digging whores' in a way that appeals to the people that he wants to appeal to. He has carved out his own niche in show business and has become one of the best comedians working today.
He is also the reason that I started watching Breaking Bad... Finally. I had been putting it off because I saw an end to a season, that spoiled a main characters death. But after listening to him talk about it with Jim Norton on his Monday Morning Podcast, I had to check it out... I watched the whole series in eleven days. Here it is below.
It was so exciting to see his name come up on the credits later in the season! He was great in that show, he had such a cool little role as one of Saul Goodman's henchmen, Patrick Kuby.
I have watched his specials many times Emotionally Unavailable (2007) Why Do I Do This? (2008) Let It Go (2010) You People Are All The Same To Me (2012), and his latest special I'm Sorry You Feel That Way (2014).
In his latest special he covered some new and intriguing topics, he did a bit on religion that basically trumped the entire "God" belief in one sentence. If he were to go to Heaven and he misbehaved, what would happen? "What are you gonna kick me out?
He just returned to the Nerdist Podcast, and I saw a totally new side of him. He discussed getting his pilot license, and how F is For Family is actually about his child hood, and a bunch of other stuff that showed his kindness. My perspective was totally renewed on Bill Burr after that interview. He's a very dynamic guy and ya gotta love 'em.
