BILL BURR is considered one of the top comedians of his generation, achieving success in TV and film as well as selling out theatres around the world. He first gained notoriety for his recurring roles on the second season of Chappelle’s Show. Bill developed a comedic style of uninformed logic that has made him a regular on David Letterman, Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon. One of the most popular comedy podcasts on the web, Bill’s Monday Morning Podcast is an off-the-cuff weekly rant that has become a fan favourite.

In December, Bill’s fourth hour long comedy special I’m Sorry You Feel That Way, will premiere on Netflix and September of this year, he released a vinyl album Live At Andrew’s House a recording of his 2011 Carnegie Hall show.

In 2015, Bill will co-star with Kevin Costner in the movie Black or White and later in the year, Bill’s animated Netflix series, F Is For Family, will premiere featuring Bill, Laura Dern and Justin Long as the ‘Murphy family’.

Bill received rave reviews for his recurring role as Kuby on the hit TV show, Breaking Bad; he has also featured in The Heat, alongsideSandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy and in the Al Pacino and Christopher Walken movie Stand Up Guys. Bill was also seen in theSteve Carell and Tina Fey feature, Date Night.

In the near future Bill hopes to have some kids. But until then, he will continue to spend most of his mid-afternoons sitting in his sweat pants learning AC/DC songs on his SG.

Bill is against organized religions and believes we should go back to the gold standard for our currency. None of his opinions are based on any sort of reliable information. He tends to go with his first thought because reading makes him sleepy.

Don’t miss your chance to see world-renown stand-up Bill Burr on his very first New Zealand tour!
