One of America's fastest-rising comedians, Bill Burr wields his razor-sharp wit with rare skill. You've seen him on Chappelle's Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with David ... See full summary »
Bill Burr does anti-woke far better than any other comedian around. His natural spite directed at the millennial snowflake and the privileged is balanced by his self awareness that he is a dinosaur. Coming straight after Dave Chapelle: sticks and stones Burr brings a far fresher, busier & funnier performance. I found nothing in Chapelle's show to be offensive, as it was reported to be,(being a Jackson denier will most likely come back to take a bite out of him) but found it all to be beige, low energy output.Chapelle's lower wattage performances are all good but a bit too prescribed for his audience. Burr's stuff is far more polished and punchy. The reason behind this is obvious to anyone that listens to his podcast... Burr puts himself on stage, maybe an exaggerated version, but still it all holds true.
Stand Burr up beside a "comedian" like Joe Rogan who is not at all naturally funny off stage and accordingly has been trying for years to figure out the equation of comedy and has an audience that is massively subsidised by his enormous podcast audience and presence on the UFC. That no comedian calls him out on this is further evidence of his reach and not his comedic talent. Anyone can spend months honing a few good jokes but you cannot teach or therefore learn to be a funny guy. (Just look at girls)
This instalment further cements Bill "the Natural" Burr as one of the all time best everyman comedians and shows no signs of the well running dry.
