Bill Burrs latest (2012) comedy special is laugh a minute stuff. If you've been following Bill's work for some time you'll notice that it includes mostly new material, and all of it has clearly been well honed on the US comedy circuit. He also includes some old stuff as well most of which has been beefed up for the new special - such as his rant about owning a pit bull or arguing with women - and the adaptations he makes to this material are interesting and cleverly made. His new material includes discussions about gun politics and buying a gun, and the politics of domestic relationships. His views on the latest Schwarzenegger debacle are hilarious while also having a real and quite interesting message for the audience.
Burr is the thinking person's comedian.
His shredding of false and specious use of stats by the "more and more" gun control nuts hits perfectly. This stand-up is from 2012. Using current events from that time shows its age, and the Schwarzenegger bit is a little old at this point. But The rest of it holds up great.
His bits on relationships are also great, nuance and the starkly obvious combined.
If you have seen his earlier material live or on his many late night TV appearances, this has enough new material that it will be fresh to even his fans.
Bill Burr is one of the best comedians out there. He manages to be
dark, offensive, insightful, and creative all while making us laugh.
This special I found to be particularly unique, not because its
structure or style was very different, but because of the range of
material Burr talks about and the way he tackles it. Various bits stuck
out as very unique to me, and these bits are the ones that I simply
didn't want to end!
While Bill Burr's style can be a little repetitive at times, the subjects he tackles are in no way repetitive. Over the course of 68 minutes, Burr cracks jokes about everything from plastic surgery to dogs to his own childhood-and as the special goes on and develops it simultaneously becomes more insightful and hilarious. Highly recommended for all of those who like a good laugh and aren't easily offended.

This is my favorite Bill Burr special so far.
In this one, Bill Burr literally tears into irritating girlfriends and well ..... gold digging whores.
I guess some people might think that Burr is being misogynist, but he really isn't. He explains in a hilarious way how mainstream media, culture and marriage laws are completely anti-male. I could hear a lot of women laughing in the audience.
The bit about Arnold Schwarzenegger is up there with some of the best stand up comedy of all time. The Arnold impersonations are pure genius. The part where Bill imitates all the fatties going "absolutely reprehensible ....." will make you roll on the floor with laughter. It was delivered perfectly. I wonder how many times he had to practice that part.
I cannot stop watching this special.
