Laughter on His Mind
Fan favorite Bill Burr hits the Vegas stage
Bill Burr is what people might call a comedian’s comedian. He’s been performing stand-up comedy since the early ’90s, and performing stand-up comedy is still the main focus of his career. He hasn’t starred in his own sitcom, he hasn’t become a movie star and he isn’t vying to be the next late-night talk-show king. Instead, he’s still touring the country playing in front of audiences, consistently writing new material and honing his craft. Burr has played supporting roles in movies and TV shows (including a memorable recurring role on Breaking Bad), and he’s a regular presence on satellite radio’s The Opie & Anthony Show.
Thanks to his dedicated fans, Burr was able to release his 2012 stand-up special You People Are All the Same through his own website, selling downloads and DVDs directly to the people. His next special will be released through Netflix, but those same fans will still be the first ones queuing it up. Being a comedian’s comedian means always finding new ways to make people laugh.
