Bill Burr first gained notoriety for his recurring role on the second season of Chappelle’s Show, and developed a comedic style of uninformed logic that made him a regular with Letterman, Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon.
Burr has had a very busy 2015. From Jan. 27 through Feb. 10, Burr made his first tour of theaters in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Mumbai. Bill co-starred opposite Kevin Costner in the indie film, Black or White, which premiered on Jan. 30. And this fall, Burr’s animated Netflix series, F Is For Family, will premiere featuring Bill, Laura Dern and Justin Long as the Murphy family.
Last year Burr was seen in Walk of Shame alongside Elizabeth Banks and in 2013 he was seen in the films The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy and Stand Up Guys with Al Pacino and Christopher Walken. Burr was also seen in the Steve Carell & Tina Fey feature Date Night.
On Dec. 5, 2014, Burr premiered his fourth hour-long special, I’m Sorry You Feel That Way, on Netflix; the special was recorded on June 20 at The Tabernacle in Atlanta. On Sept. 30, 2014, Burr released the vinyl album Live At Andrew’s House, a recording of his 2011 Carnegie Hall performance, from Third Man Records. In July of 2014, Burr received the Stand-up Comedian of the Year Award from the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.
Burr received raves for his recurring role as “Kuby” on the hit AMC-TV show Breaking Bad and for his role in the Chappelle’s Show. He can be seen in multiple episodes of the hit Comedy Central show, Kroll Show. He guest-starred on Fox TV’s New Girl in 2013 and contributed to the 2012 and 2011 ESPYS.
One of the most popular comedy podcasts on the web, Bill’s Monday Morning Podcast, is an off-the-cuff, twice-weekly rant that has become a fan favorite. Burr began the podcast in May, 2007 and has produced more than 400 episodes.
